Default Say thanks to Warner Bros. for Blood Diamond

Finally Warner takes a step in the right direction. Let them know you appreciate it and hopefully this will be the start of a trend:

Here's where to contact them, hit all three:

IF YOU get an ERROR page on either of the forms, just hit the "Retry" button on your browser.

Customer Service Form - http://www2.warnerbros.com/web/main...mer_service.jsp
Choose "DVD / Video" from the pulldown menu.

Email Address - customerservice@wb.com

It is possible that they are floating a balloon with this release, and it is important that you tell them how great a policy it would be. Tell them how happy you are to see Blood Diamond on Blu-ray.

Why would you thank them for giving you half of what will be on the HD DVD release for the same price?

Because they're releasing it now instead of later?

I'm just trying to understand. Both will be the same price but the HD DVD gets IME with all the special features & the Blu-ray will be just the movie no extras for the same price as the HD DVD.

Hmmm... That's worrying. Surely the sensible thing for Warners to do is issue identical editions on both formats. Does this mean they lean more towards HD-DVD than BD? (I ask that as a genuine question, as I really am not up on who supports what, other than that Warners seem to be one of the companies issuing on both formats.)

Warner is most obiously favouring HD-DVD. The only real treat they gave us is The Departded. On most (if not all, I'm not quite sure) they ported the same VC1 encode from HD-DVD to BD yet, despite the fact that there is more storage, didn't include a lossless audio stream, Happy Feet being the latest example. So let's hope with the anouncment of a lossless track for 'Letters' this will change for good. I couldn't care less for IME and online functions, just give me the movie with the best PQ and AQ possible.

Many BD owners (tho not all) have stated they don't care that much about the IME, and that all they want is to watch THE NOVIE in high quality. I guess, there's 2 different demographics between BD fansand HD DVD fans

A step in the right direction can only be a 50gb high bitrate, high bandwidth version with PCM or DD THD on it for BD.....anything less is unacceptable.

I'm paying for THE MOVIE not the IME junk....so since the extras is valueless to me your price comparison between the 2 is meaningless.

I agree, all the polls were overwhelmingly "give us movies not, screw IME"! I am happy that Warner decided to release it now in stead of in November (or whenever BD's IME is ready). Just give us PCM or TrueHD and everything is perfectly fine, cause I really don't care if one version has a little more extras as the other (as long as they have them)!

This is a step in the right direction by Warner if you ask me!

Well, for me image and sound quality are paramount. The interactive features are nice to have, though when these kind of features were included on DVDs, I never actually used them... These releases should however, be like for like on BD and HD-DVD, and it certainly does point to Warners favouring the latter, particularly considering that BD is the format with the larger data capacity...

Exactly! Who cares if the HDDVD version lets you vote in polls online? I (at one point before selling manyh of them) had over 500 DVDs and almost never watched the "extras". To me, and it seems many others, picture and audio quality are the most important.

Seriously I would much rather have V for Vendetta, Matrix, and Batman Begins now, than wait for November for a few minor features I'll never use.

Angry Sony Get Your Act Together!!!

All Sony needs to do is get there act together and fix there bd-java so Warner will release them all.Dont blame Warner.Get your emails out to Sony.Its about time these things are no longer an issue.Your trying to sell a new format and your sleeping on the technology.I have my Sony player and paid good money for it and I have to wait untill they get there act together.I love Blu-ray and have over 60 or so titles I felt are worth having in High Def.But dont make me wait to long for my titles cause Ill find them somewhere else.Matrix on high def makes me want to pick up a hd-dvd player and go dual.Especially as cheap as the players are now.They need to get agressive and NOW!!!before people jump ship.Thats just my opinion.I will allways buy Blu Ray first but dont test my patience.Lifes to short.movieeddie

Ditto.
I'll also show them as a dual format owner that IME & Web based features are lame And that I have little faith in HDDVD, by buying the Blu-ray format.

Better to have released than to never have released at all.

I'll take the BD as is. If you want Warners to produce more BD titles you shouldn't castrate them for trying. BD-J has a higher learning curve than HDi but will be capable of so much more.

I wanted this day and date, but I'll still be happy to pick it up on June 5th, I just hope there is a lossless audio track. The BD version WILL outsell the HD-DVD version with or without extras.
Blu-ray Disc Collection- I don't think I can count that high...

I dont care about some special extras including PIP

All i care about is PQ and SQ ,finally we are watching a movie and not game with questions and answers or whatever is belong too

For whom is going to buy HD-DVD do you think when it is released with this special extras is not going to make you some painful.I mean here is going to work on your HD-DVD player Straight forward.

I submerge in HD because of PQ and SQ

i choose BD and as a result :

BD has the PQ with suitable maximise bit rate whatever codecs are used

and SQ of course it is PCM and first notch no one can surpass it.

this is what i'm looking for at the end.
