No offense, but you my friend suck. It kills me that you get the best releases so damned early. Arrgghhh! Just kidding, keep those pics and reviews coming. You know that a lot of us on here are dying to get our hands on these titles.

I don't envy him. Probably some of you will rather envy me who already watched some!

Here is some impressions:

I had a prior commitment for last night but my initial impression to tell the truth is very favorable. Right from the get go I knew I had something that was well worth the wait and price I paid. The opening I detected a better picture than on the SD DVD that I don't know how many times I have viewed. I made sure I focused on that because we all know what happens when the audio starts kicking into higher gear. Man oh man do we have an audio track 2D4! The detail is really remarkable and the dialogue is clear and clean as a whistle to boot. The bass is not boomy but tight as can be IMHO.

I watched the first 15 minutes full and needed to scan thereafter because of my commitment but what I watched and heard I know I have a SD DVD that will always have a top spot on my shelf but I probably will never go back to.

The stormy sea sequence starting in Chapter 14 is rough material most surely but I really believe the BD handles this as well as can be expected. Above and beyond that, Kosty was correct in his assumption that the dark ship interior, early morning and night battle scenes should show quite a bit more detail and they do.

I viewed and listened to what I had time for utilizing the Panny BD 30 running component to a Tosh 50" RPTV at 1080i. I used the Onkyo SR605 for DTS HD MA. Most have a better display than my older work horse but its what I lived with for the SD DVD in 480p watching this for years so wanted that to be my first go. I cannot wait to watch this on my Panny plasma!!

Those of you who preorder obviously didn't care about the offering price not waiting for a sale or BOGO. Rest assured I don't think you'll be disappointed for the buck spent. Those who are on the fence but are leaning towards picking it up from a B&M store at opening price, I don't feel there is anything to shy away from to be honest and I mostly certainly will not dissuade you from doing so!

The audio on this disc is demo material IMO.
