Yup, the running time is over 3 hours! It's 220min actually.
That would make it 3 hours & 40 min, nearly 4 hours.

POTC: AWE - Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's end.

And I imagine the point of this post is to figure out how much can comfortably fit on a Blu disc to see if EE of LOTR can fit on one disc - just a wild guess though


I'll throw in that Lost: S3 has 5 eps per disc at about 45 minutes each so 225 minutes (3hrs 45 minutes) of gorgeous video and uncompressed PCM as well. I'm not postive on the exact space savings, but I think if they bumped uncompressed PCM for True HD or DTSHD-MA they could maybe get another half hour or more onto a disc.

Does anyone know the space for uncompressed vs the HD codecs?

Oof - I think that all depends on the video encode used and could vary depending on the audio codec used too...using regular DD5.1 means more video time, using Uncompressed PCM means less video time.

I honestly think they look good. Gettysburg doesn't look that great due to an older master being used, but I didn't see any compression artifacts. Gods and Generals looks better because it stems from a more recent master and of course it's a more recent film anyway.

The television version of Fanny and Alexander runs 322 minutes. The movie flies by at a quick pace, though, and there's not a wasted second. I've watched the entire movie in one sitting a couple of times.

The picture quality of the 322-minute version is outstanding.
