I picked up the Wal-Mart version today as well and just watched it.

Actually very little of the movie (about 10 or 15 minutes) was in "big screen". Kind of disappointing actually.

I look forward to seeing the Blu-ray on a reasonable size screen so I can appreciate the cinematography.

Come on over and see it on my 116" screen and 2650 watts of power....it'll knock your socks off and vibrate your intestines. :D

Or, if you want to see it on a big screen, you could watch it on my 126" (with dual 18" subs) ;)

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

I bought the Wal Mart version first on DVD, their 2 disc special edition that they were selling for $16.14, much to my surprise, this standard DVD has the added IMAX footage added into it, and with both aspect ratio's!! Went back and bought the Blu-Ray the next day, it was marked $19.96 but rang up $16.14 also.
I should be getting a Blu-Ray player in the next 4-6 weeks, and figured I had better grab the wal-mart version before they disappeared. If they disappear, who knows with all these retailer exclusive versions.

Anyway I liked the movie, though the story line was not as strong as in the first one, but the quality of the video was amazing, and the audio WOW!! My Denon AVR-989 receiver got a workout tuesday evening!! They really outdid themselves on this soundtrack.

Nice catch on the price!

I also got a similar "deal".

Watching it again on Blu Ray this weekend with some more folks.

Agree, got it on Blu, totally trashes the first movie.... Action up the wahzoo.

And the sound is good considering they only encoded it in Dolby Tru HD 5.1.

Agreed - the Audio is rated 5 stars out of 5, the video 4.5 out of 5.

Even though its 5.1 surround...in my 7.1 THX Home Theater with 2650 watts...the audio is awesome. :)

Not sure I liked all the lens flares, but I am sure the director was doing it for effect...

The Blu Ray sales have already put this movie in the #1 position for 2009.

Record sales - this past week.

I guess some of us like this movie in HD.

We got ours via Netflix and #2 daughter and I watched it last night. I agree on the audio and visuals. It's certainly holds your attention from that perspective! But "Revenge of the Fallen" didn't have the fun feel of the first movie and at 2 and a half hours was pretty ponderous. We won't be buying this one.
