You can guarantee that without having seen the discs? Interesting.

Can you tell me if The Dark Knight Rises is any good?

Being a Chris Nolan movie all signs point to yes.

Just like all signs point to a Uwe Boll movie being bad.

And a Universal catalogue title being hit with the DNR stick.

Meh, I'll wait until actual evidence proves otherwise. Universal were responsible for the best received catalogue disc of last year in Touch Of Evil (granted via MoC, but still, MoC don't restore anything, they work with what they are given). And if Psycho is any hint of whats to come then I'm sure most of us will be very pleased with the results.

About time! I onlyt really want Vertigo Blu. I certainly wouldn't buy this at release price as I've only watched my DVDs of the last set once apart from the popular titles. I can wait 'till it's a lot cheaper.
