Get it right first time in future, Sony

HD DVD/Blu-ray

Source: DVD Times

The Fifth Element, Blu-ray’s poster child disgrace, is to get a re-release this July, with the current substandard release going out of print come June 13th. Little information has been provided for the new edition, but the online buzz suggests that we’ll get an AVC encode on a dual-layer BD50 disc, as well as both PCM and Dolby TrueHD audio (either 20-bit or 24-bit). If Sony had any decency, they’d offer a free replacement to anyone who bought the initial pressing, but hey, since when did the words “Sony” and “decency” go together?

I may end up picking up this new release to replace my standard definition Superbit DVD, although part of me wants to hold out for the HD DVD release that Pathé seemingly intends to release in Europe at some point in the near future.

Well, I've heard that they are going to offer free replacement.

Crappy movie anyway!
A cheap rip-off the METAL HURLANT comics.
