At this rate there will probably be a superior US release with 1080p transfer and if we're lucky, uncut.

Damn, I was looking forward to getting this. Now I'll have to wait even longer for a better release.

I got the Aussie Blu-ray the other day... oddly direct from Amazon US and under $25.

It is 1080i/50, but looks pretty good if you're capable of playing that. The disc itself is a dual-layer with a healthy bit-rate.

I never got the old Aussie DVD, but there's a ton of bonus features on the Blu-ray ported over from that release. The Feature-length "Jaws on Trotters" Documentary is included, another 90+ minutes of various Interviews culled from Not Quite Hollywood, Deleted Scenes, Trailers, Stills Gallery, etc..

The Audio Track is lossless DTS HD Master 5.1, and often sounds pretty damn powerful.

I kind of doubt a US Blu-ray will be forthcoming anytime soon, since Warner still holds the rights here. A future UK or German release is certainly possible though, albeit might include the same master/transfer, so who knows.

fool me once, shame on you...fool me twice, shame on me. and it looks like i've been fooled twice. i didn't notice any of the comments here and elsewhere about the interlaced issue, and the fact that this blu ray still suffers from PAL speedup. I ordered a copy of the BD and sold my Umbrella DVD, having never watched it. Only to receive it and have the same unpleasant revelation about the PAL. I suppose having it in HD is still an improvement, but all I really want is to see the movie at the correct speed. sunufabitch.

I thought there was no such thing as PAL and NTSC when it comes to blus? I swear I've read that here a few times.

Correct... there is not technically PAL or NTSC for "HD" content on a Blu-ray. But... some Blu-rays are encoded with 50hz/60hz content, and can basically be the same problem as not all BD players can handle those.

If SD material is on a BD though, it can still be either PAL or NTSC and cause problems if your player doesn't support PAL playback. That's why some people can still play the movie itself just fine on a Blu-ray, but not the extras on a disc.
