I hope they have a new master for LA HAINE. I have the European HD-DVD and it's a terrible transfer. DNRed to death, it looks barely better than a DVD upconvert.

Bear in mind also that Optimum have had problems with quite a few of their previous Blu Rays - them being upconverts (Escape From New York), having sound channels the wrong way round (Cliffhanger), etc. Hopefully they've learnt a few lessons since then.
