    Anyone else find this to be a bit on the soft side( the vfx work looks soft anyway but this is one of the softest transfers I've seen)

    I just had a look at my brothers region 1 copy (i didn't buy it, thought the film stank in the cinema). I'm usually the first one to complain about PQ. It's not as sharp as Star Wars Trilogy/The Matrix Reloaded/Indiana Jones/Superbits etc but I wouldn't say it was particularly soft, although it does look filtered about 5mhz. Maybe it's filtered to reduce mpeg artifacts, there's a lot of action in this picture. It's not heavily edge enhanced. Looks quite good apart from the slight softness. Maybe the R2 is softer than the R1.

    You're right about the film being rubbish .... total snorefest. Hey everyone the northern hemisphere is decimated and uninhabitable..lets all go live in Mexico after treating them like crap for centuries!

    Hey Iraqi man go help the brits and yanks fight the aliens!

    Damn that nasty 100storey tall monster ! Lets blame it on the French!

    I hope Roland emmerich runs for President one day I really do his foreign policy would win comedy awards although he'd probably declare war on Canada

    thanks Jeff I'll give it a spin now that I'm back with TT1.5 again in case TT2 was also to blame.

    Yes I was disapointed with this movie big time!

    I felt sorry for all those friendly Canadians, they didn't even get a mention by the Whitehouse when they issued statements for the public.

    Mr Emmerich obviously didn't make the Yanks out to be good neighbours, just selfish and landing themselves in Mexico unannounced! Ole Gringo get the pot on! (TEA pot)(lol)

    Gringo - hope that's not offensive, correct me if I'm wrong but isn't that a type of Mexican person? If it's not a nice term sorry!!

    Tequilas on me!

    Gringo is a word that Mexican's use for non-Mexicans. Spanish for "foreigner". Not a racist term at all.

    I thought it had something to do with the "green coats" the US soldiers wore during the Mexiacan American war or something - therefore sounding like "gringo"

    Did hear that somewhere...
