Ronin finally coming on Blu-ray, but...

...it's barebones. Single-layered disc, too, which means a potentially lower bit-rate for a 2 hour movie.

Ronin is one of my old favorites. I saw it in the theater with a friend in high school, and have loved it ever since. The pacing, the action, the characters -- everything is great. I'd love to have it in hi-def, but I'm not shelling out $35 for a disc that has fewer special features than the VHS (which at least had an alternate ending after the credits, if I remember right).

MGM, why you gotta make me hit you?

I saw this ages ago and wasn't too into it, but your interest in it makes me want to give it a second viewing. I'll have to check it out again.

And I completely feel your frustration on the Blu-ray release. There are a few other things that have been buggin' me lately about Blu-ray, but I'll save that for a post of my own.
