Yup! That was the main reason I got real pissed when I first bought the Canadian released. I sold that disc the very next day.

There's really only two decent releases, the EB 6 pack and the JP disc. If the contrast wasn't so high on the EB disc I would have kept it, but I decided to sell it and get the JP disc since it has the best PQ and extras. However, the AQ is noticeably better on the EB disc.

Sorry if I am mistaken but the SFX scenes are cropped to a 2.39:1 ratio?

I don't mind as long as the majority of the movie is open matte.

No, they are cropped within the 1.78:1 frame.

That's actually the cheapest I have seen it as I paid $40 for it.
That's the DVD.

If you are region free just get the Italian disc. Much cheaper and the sound is better.

I have the IT disc and the audio is great, although I do not have the JP disc, but the average video bitrate of the JP disc is a lot higher than the IT disc, and thus compression is slightly better on the JP disc:

Yeah.

It really does need a remaster/new scan because even the IT and JP discs look crap in places, EE, DNR, banding, artifacting, you name it, those problems are still there.

I have this release, Alliance Canada..... cover says it is 2.35:1, but it is 1.78:1 ...... was shot open matte so as the other reviewers have commented, it actually opens up the frame. I realize that might not suffice for the purists, but the PQ is very nice and the DTS HD MA is as well. Not sure if it is OOP now:

There's some of that in the JP disc. If there is it must be rather minimal.

Yes indeed.
I currently have the Japanese bluray and it's easily the better of the bunch, it's totally worth it for the right price, i got mine for $29.00 including shipping.

Never seen the EB version so I cant coment.

In recent months, Lionsgate has simply been re-releasing direct ports of Miramax titles previously released by Echo Bridge. So don't get your hopes up.
