    I will be interested to see what you think of the picture quality.
    All the reviews I have seen (HTF etc) for this & Cold Mountain R1 say they are both appalling, very poor although the sound DD & DTS is superb.
    Disappointed if this is the case as they are both superb films.

    Just read the review here as from HTF
    http://www.hometheaterforum.com/htforum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=202433
    also both the HTF & DVDFile (no English Patient review) reviews of Cold Mountain say PQ very poor.

    Looks like Disney have the same problem with both of these releases

    English Patient (I'm very embarrassed to say) is the only film that has ever made me cry (and I mean, sob like a bitch).
