I think point #3 is the most important.
If I had to grade formats on an arbitrary 1-10 scale, VHS is a 1, regular NTSC would be a generous 2, DVD a 7, HDTV a 9, and HighDef DVDs a 10.

Sounds better than my 6/18 to 7/2 delivery estimates with super saver shipping.

The news so far isn't encouraging. BHD is one of the few BD releases I am eager to see and now it sounds like it is going to be sub-standard. Sony seems to be doing their best to screw things up.

Yes, there were a couple of Jean Claude movies in the $4.88 bin at my local WM and Cyborg was one of them.
