looked at the box in HMV today and it said 5.1 so US version for 7.1 it would seem

DTS-HD-MA 5.1 track, 1080p/24hz VC-1 transfer on a BD-50.
Actually a two disc set, with the 70+ min HD making of on the second disc,(BD-25), with 41 mins of random interviews, etc. Disc one had the film, commentary and PiP commentary. Glad they put the doc on a seperate disc, gives the,(quite nice), movie encode room to breathe.

Isn't the US disc region locked?

Multi region here but I think I'll stay local this time and pick this up.

Isn't this just called 'Gamer' as apposed to 'The Gamer' ?

I'm being a bit fickle i know. It's as bad as people calling the movie 'The Knowing' as apposed to 'Knowing' !

It cracks me up ............. :rotfl:

What are people's thoughts on the actual movie?
I seem to be one of the few people that actually enjoyed it and understood that it was clearly a p*sstake, not to be taken seriously at all, despite being played with a straight face.

I didn't go a bundle for it at the cinema, but as you say, it wasn't really what I was expecting. I didn't realise it was so Crank-like, and basically a very OTT satire.

I'm looking forward to re-evaluating it on Blu though - heard the transfer is fantastic.

Didnt like it anywhere as much as Crank personally but can see the similarities

Transfer is top notch though

disc is annoying as far as I couldnt skip the ads at the beginning (I had to individually fffd through each seperate ad) , and I did try both menu buttons which were seemingly disabled

Just picked this up at my local Morrisons for a reasonable £16.99. Was surprised to see it there to be honest, Look forward to watching it in a bit.

On a side note while I was at the tills I noticed the bloke behind me had a dvd of Wrong Turn 3 in his trolly with a £11.99 sticker on it, Told him to keep his receipt :lesson:

It was £16.99 in HMV as well,(at least for this week, lol). Colour me very surprised.

I've noticed recently that HMV's blu prices are often competitive for the first week of release - worth remembering if you get stuck with vouchers.

Do you know what, I actually quite enjoyed Wrong Turn 3 for what it was- cheap DTV crap. It's a keeper for me:rolleyes:

Watched this last night. Really liked the action scenes which were done in a similar way to games such as Call Of Duty. There were some stupid scenes, cheesey scenes, weird & sick scenes! All in though, well worth a watch with top notch sound & picture quality.

I'm holding out for a bit in the hope the Aussie release will be in 7.1.
