    Hi all.
    Has anyone watched this yet? My disc 1 seems to cut out halfway through a scene. Then says film continued on disc 2. But the end of the scene isn't on disc 2.
    Has anyone else had this problem?

    I have verified the 3 disk version - although the cut looks wrong, as Alexander says "Come on then, where are your daggers?" it then goes to the marching hordes against the sky scene.

    I will say this - Nice soundtrack, shame about the PQ.

    Can't wait for the US version I'm afraid - it will have better PQ for sure (although no DTS - but that I can live with).

    Thanks for looking. It's the final scene on disc 1. My disc cuts off at 2hr 17m 30secs. It just looks wrong. You're right, the PQ is not the best.

    Right!!!

    The cut on the R3 he says "Come on then, Where are your dagg" and it cuts.

    It's literally missing the end of the word Daggers, so it's very annoying, but that is all that's missing.

    R2 is August, R3 is out and R1 is June I think.......

    You can get it from Cd-Wow, Movietyme - the usual suspects basically!

    I liked the movie personally. Not saying it's amazing or without it's flaws, but it didn't deserve the press slating it got - especially when there are much more heinous movies out there.

    Thanks for checking it out.
    I thought it wasn't a bad movie. Not the best, but very watchable.

    Not knocking the set at all. Just feel that the PQ isn't very good. Although the colours are bright, it is a bit muted as well as having compression artefacts (check the spears in the first battle) and grain to it.

    It's probably worse, as the PQ of Phantom was good in comparrison and both disks were made by the same manufacturer.

    Movietyme have it for £50 as well, but I'm glad I only paid £14.99 for it!

    But (as earlier posted) I have to disagree with you Lazarus on the PQ. I've ordered the 2 disk I mentioned about, hoping that the PQ is better.

    Dude - I saw this film in Toronto (with 3 lesbian friends!) - we all agreed. Angie was hot, then really hot, then looked older but still hot, then totally evil and damn hot :)

    What can I say beyond that ? :)

    Lazarus - My point of reference is a Denon 3910 on a Samsung 32" LCD using Component and HDMI-DVI connectors and it's not bad, but if I were rating it, it'd get a 5, due to the graininess primarily.

    Mr & Mrs Smith does look very good - wasn't this film supposedly responsible for the split between Brad & his Mrs?

    So the "press" say - but when have they got anything right? I was led to believe that Aniston was indeed jealous, but it was more to do with Pitt wanting a child (he apparently loves Maddox to bits) and Aniston not wanting to have a child that led to the split. He's clearly close to Jolie, especially as he loves kids, but then if Jen had said yes - then the press wouldn't have this alleged "scandal". It's more newsworthy that Jolie and Liman (the director) came to blows - Pitt having to a)maintain the status quo and b)direct Jolie as she has zero tolerence for fools apparently (according to Premiere).

    Ahhhhhh - How to make a mountain out of a mole hill.........
