    The bad part is you dont actualy own the movie :(  you only rent it for 24 hours. Not to nit pick but its only a 720P video with no HD audio. If you wish to watch it again then it costs you an additional 5 bucks from microsoft and at that point your are halfway to the price of owning it.

    I liked the Microsoft downloads better when they were permanent to your specific xbox and didnt have a period of time they ran out. The way I watch movies I would get killed with rental fees as I might rewatch a movie several times over exceeding the cost of just buying it outright

    Obviously they're not going to let you keep something indefinately for $5, but they should have a higher price you can pay like $12-$15 that does allow you to actually purchase the content as opposed to renting it.

    ah. all very true. STILL.. for someone who doesn't have an HD dvd drive, and who hasn't gotten to see the movie since opening day, it was well worth the temporary download to see.... well everything. heheh

    just wanted to get the good word out for you ladies and gents out there, in case you're like Myself and too cheap to buy 'spensive technology just for one movie.

    still....

    that's one GOOD movie.

    What I was wondering, is it just the barebones movie or do you get the special content too?

    You could also just use a converter for a regular DVD. I did and there was so much detail. And I get to keep the movie:crazy:

    I wondered why the file was only 6 gigs. So the Audio isn't HD? I guess I don't mind too much. I still want to watch it 720. I'm not going to buy an HDDVD player any time soon, so this will be the only way for me to check it out.

    I don't think so.
    None of the movies I've rented for the 360 have had any bonus content.


    I don't think the audio could be HD-Audio.
    I'm not sure an HD audio track exists for the movie yet.
    I am pretty certain that not even the HD-DVD has HD-Audio.

    And here is the thing:
    I can absolutely tell a huge difference between HD and SD video.
    But HD-audio and, say, 5.1 audio? Not so much.

    I am certain that there are some people who can, but I am not one of them.
    Hell, I bought a Sherwood 7.1 receiver so I could be ready for all the movies in 7.1.

    DVDs that contain 7.1 audio in my collection to date: ZERO.

    Oh yeah, I dont even have the setup for that, so right now I'm more concerned with video HD. So I will be renting this on the weekend.

    Ebay:
    keep in mind its only 720 p and you only get it for up to 24 hours.
    honestly, I have an HD DVD player, love it but I also want a blue ray player.
