I'll try to watch it tomorrow if I can stay awake, and without the distraction of my turntable, the next few weeks could be a good time to catch up on some movies.
I'd pre-ordered the steelbook blu ray of The Wicker Man about six months ago, watched it tonight. The vast majority of it looks absolutely stunning. Some of the dialogue is a little anaemic but the music is really crisp. The new cut is very interesting too, highly recommended to you guys who liked it

I've watch "Le Quattro Volte"...
It's an inevitable purchase for me, but I'm waiting for a price drop.
I was under the impression that "the final cut" is the director's cut, with a few early scenes of Howie on the mainland taken out. Is there anything else that's different?
I'm sure I'll enjoy "Corn Rigs" and "The Landlord's Daughter" in lossless audio.
That'll probably be little compensation. At least we can discuss the film once we've all watched it.
Not the most neutral of emoticons there, Hi-Fi Outlaw!
it is not me, is this yellow guys...
i'm forbidden by the rules...
This site has some good info on the differences: http://www.steve-p.org/wm/shortonly.htm
Looking at it, my DVD is probably of the 'short' version, so a fair bit different. The 'middle' version is shorter than the 'extended' version but still has some additional scenes, such as in the graveyard early in the film.
I heard Mark Kermode say recently (and it is if note he presents the first of the extras on the disc) that the director considers this the closest version to what had originally been intended, although there is still some lost footage.
There are some scenes which are obviously of much worse quality than the rest; those look to be additional to the 'short' version.
I had the opportunity last night but was so knackered after a 30 hour stretch at work on Wednesday that I just went to bed.
We can watch it now though, I take it...?

You can watch it whenever, so absolutely. Not best to do it tired, as it requires a little concentration I would say.
Btw I am not easily offended and have no emotional attachment to this film so people can be as frank as they like about it!
I think most people have watched it, but I am still waiting to receive my disc. The estimated delivery date is 26th Oct, so still potentially another week to wait for me. I ordered the disc quickly, but the postal service seems very slow.
This delay may work out well for some members - I know I understood Survive Scene 5+ better, after watching it for the second time - so some members may want to take the opportunity of this extra week, to watch the film again.
The only thing not to do, is to discuss it on the forum, until I have seen it.
BBB - I also ordered a copy of Elling, so maybe we will also be able to discuss that film as well, in a couple of weeks.
Because the post seems so slow, might it be a good idea to choose next months film asap, to give us a chance to obtain copies ready for the first week of November?
