I havent seen this movie in a while, but was in the mood to work out the speakers with something other than Godzilla. Frankly I was very entertained. The sets, special effects, costume design and script are all top notch. The movie was up for quite a few Oscars but only won two. The launch scene had me in tears, proving in my mind that a good system makes the difference between watching a movie and getting moved by it. The DVD is anamorphic and of course has a top notch Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack. It also contains a directors commentary which I didnt have a chance to listen to unfortunately.
