Got The Incredible Hulk (RA BD) today, and yes; the case is indeed green. The picture quality is nothing short of perfect and the sound quality is superb; it sounds amazing even though i can't decode DTS HD MA (get standard DTS). It's easily among the best sounding discs i've got.

Here's a few thumbs of the packaging for you:



Also; notice that the HD slim keep case is a single disc case and that the digital copy disc comes in it's own paper case.

Great to hear that the PQ and AQ are fantastic, I like the creativity behind putting the Green Case out as well, suit the theme of the film and at least it's something different out there...

BTW - Since Universal had joined the BD wagon, I think they have done fantastic, not only they redone their audio in catalog titles w/ DTS-MA compare to those that were offered DD+ track on HD DVD, indeed they continued to delivered on Blu, good on them I guess...

Thanks for the pics Disciple. I'd love to get the BD but I'm going to get the 2 disc steelbook instead. At least the deleted scenes aren't BD exclusive.

¤ If you buy the standard DVD release, you get 13 minutes and 19 seconds of deleted scenes.
¤ If you get the 3-disc DVD set, you get 28 minutes and 47 seconds of deleted scenes.
¤ If you get the Blu-Ray, you get 43 minutes and 50 seconds worth of deleted scenes.

So if you get the 2-disc steelbook DVD, you only get 28 minutes and 47 seconds, missing out on almost 15 minutes. Now, i haven't seen any of the deleted footage apart from the alternate opening so far, so i can't say if it's even worth a watch, but there is a difference in the ammount of deleted scenes included on the different releases.

I suppose you've got to ask yourself, when did any amount of deleted scenes add up to much? Apart from some instances where it's interesting to see what scenes/subplots were cut out. Deleted scenes, whether they run for 13, 28 or 43 minutes, are deleted for a reason.

This is a cheap and nasty piece of marketing by Marvel. 'Here, pay more money for even more stuff we don't want or need for the film'.

Vote with your wallets people.

Me? Of course I'll be getting the BD cos well ya know...

...it's got all that extra shee-att on itHappy

Got my BD today, was in my local store and just couldn't resist it. Might get the german steelbook in the future just to have snazzy packaging. Will watch both Hulks tonight.

I'm sure some Faneditor will include all those deleted scenes to make an extended cut. Now as I've yet to see them I can't say if they were justifiably cut out.

I haven't seen the steelbook packaging, but the lenticular cover for the BD is pretty nice too, that's why you bought it, right? Wink

Not quite sure what happened in the UK. Universal released shots of the slipcover as per the US release, but in the end all we got was a standard blue case.

That's disappointing Chris.

While on the subject of cases;

I've noticed that it appears to be popular to use BD keep cases that are as thick as DVD keep cases (at least here in Sweden), that's even more annoying than the hulk case not being green. Whoever came up with that, that's so lame!

Anyone know which studios use these so i can stay away? I have a couple of HD DVD cases like these from Universal, so i know they're guilty, but are there more studios/distributors using these?

I'd say 90% of the discs I own from every studio going are in the thicker cases. I only have a few thin cases.

No way!? That's...shocking to say the least. Hmmm...

I just don't see the point of it.

I guess i'll stick to buying RA discs and modify the cover spine of whatever RB films i feel i have to get. That's right; i'm region free now, and 2.0 enabled. Wink

I've noticed that most Blu-Rays are actually DVD-case thick. However, one thing I wanna know...why does that matter?

Can't see the point in playing loads to go region free on BD at the moment. Most titles are all region and the few that aren't, well just get the local version. Multi region mods are currently way too expensive for my tastes.

Well, i got it mainly because it's profile 2.0 enabled and i'm a sucker for special features. It also has a DTS HD Master Audio decoder and i have an older reciever, which still works, so i see no point in buying a new receiver. The best thing about it though, is that it's damn quick. The difference in speed between this player (Panasonic BMP-BD50) and the Samsung BD-P1400 is huge, i mean; they're lightyears apart. I also love the remote, and that's something you should think about when buying a new player; always make sure you like the remote. The layout of buttons, the response when pushing the buttons...

I got rid of 2 remotes and 2 machines by buying this player. Before i bought it, i had a blu-ray player that was region A/1, and a DVD-player which was region free. Since the Panasonic has been modified to be region free on both DVD and BD, i now no longer need these players. Happy

You can also enter codes with the remote to make it useable with other machines, so i got rid of my TV remote and the remote for my reciever by as well. Happy

Why does it matter if the BD cases are as thick as DVD cases? They take up less space! That's one of the best thing about BDs. Why take two steps back?
