The good news is that the HD DVD releases of Silent Hill and Underworld are now shipping from Amazon.de… at least for some of us. My copies went out just before midday, but the official word from Concorde Home Entertainment is that Friday is the target date for availability.

It would also appear that there will be no extras on either of these discs. Supposedly, if they sell well, future titles from Concorde will include bonus materials. For Silent Hill, which was bare-bones in its Blu-ray incarnation too, this isn’t that much of a big deal, but Underworld in its standard definition incarnation (and, presumably, the US Blu-ray version due to be released on September 25th as well) was quite feature-packed, so that’s a bit of a shame. Oh well - provided the image quality is excellent, I won’t be complaining too much.

Visually, two nicely "shot" films but thats it.
Boring and useless... especially UNDERWORLD!

I thought Silent Hill was very good, one of the better (if not the best) video game adaptations. Someone once described it as the sort of film Lucio Fulci would have made in the early 80s if he’d had a big budget and CGI at his disposal, which I think is a very accurate description.

Underworld I like less, but I still found it enjoyable, unlike the awful sequel.
