Re: twelve monkeys july 28th

I will definitely buy this once it hits my price point. Maybe sooner if it has any exclusive extras.

Let's hope Universal goes back and gives this title a worthy transfer because the HD DVD was below average. I hesitated paying $5 for this HD DVD knowing how it looked, but $20? Yikes.

Re: twelve monkeys july 28th

I have this on HD DVD and still haven't watched it. I'll need to soon.

If I love the film (as I expect) -- it was a blind buy -- then I will gladly pick up the Blu-ray if it has a big improvement in PQ/AQ. I know the HD DVD is supposed to be a weak release so let's hope this time they do it right!

From the Blu-ray.com review:
In fact, rather than giving the film its just due, it appears as if the studio simply ported its problematic HD DVD transfer to a BD-50 disc, warts and all.

Re: twelve monkeys july 28th

for the ones that own this, does it include Japanese subtitles? If it doesn't appear, if the menus are set to Japanese, does it pop up? thanks for checking, in advance.

Re: twelve monkeys july 28th

The audio may be somewhat improved, but I'll stick to the HD DVD. I finally watched and loved the film - saw it earlier this summer. Amazing movie, and I'm content with having spent $5 on the HD DVD.
