Great film, but I'm not sure I could sit through it in a theater without an intermission. My attention span is ok, it's my sitting-on-my-arse span that suffers.

A couple years ago Best Buy was getting rid of all its Superbit dvd titles for $9.99. I picked up LoA. It looks great, although I'm sure the blu-ray will be even better.

Great movie, maybe I'll go see it in the theaters if I get pushed :) but as for the blu-ray goes, I'm not sure if I would buy a copy in a hurry!!... I have some of the (Superbit & Superbit Deluxe) titles myself, and Lawrence of Arabia is an outstanding copy in widescreen presentation at 227 Mins. in DDS/DTS 5.1 Audio,

also (Das Boot the director's cut, and Mel Gibson "The Patriot) all great Superbit collection,

Well guys, if you are planning to watch it in theaters, you only get one shot at it which is thursday the Oct 4th. I can't go since have to work thursday night :(

I have the earlier version two disc DVDs and it look pretty good and I imagine it look even better on Superbit. Probably Bluray version will have a killer picture quality after studio went thru all the trouble restoring it.
