No in full screen to minimize cropping. That is what I'm getting at. In order to put the IMAX sequences in 2.39:1 they had to crop the footage (more than what they should). The shot loses the nostalgic effect.

I'm afraid you're a little late.
In 2007, I bought a PS3 for 4 specific titles; in 2̶0̶1̶4̶ 2015, half of them haven't been released yet.

I don't think it's anywhere near a 5.0 for PQ, it's obviously been filtered, but god forbid you raise that issue around here...

US reviewers were sent the 3-disc Best Buy set. That one actually has a different transfer from the 2-disc set that everyone else got. How many discs does your edition have?

But yeah, like Sky_Captain noted, this isn't a flawless transfer. (It's pretty good, though.)

There's no such thing as a flawless transfer.
Oh sure, many candidates will come close, but nothing is life is flawless.

Best Buy has a new listing for this movie with a street date of 03/12/2013 and price of $12.99.

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Mission%...&skuId=8684172

My guess is a single disc edition that drops the DVD.

Has anyone compared the best buy exclusive disc to the 2 disc version? I own the 2 disc version and was disappointed with the video quality at times - Jeremy Renner's face looks like an example of how to apply egregious edge enhancement throughout the second half of the film. From what I've read, the best buy exclusive didn't have these issues.

Site reviewer Martin Liebman has reviewed both versions. His PQ comments don't mention this as an issue.
