Yeah, I heard about that prior to the purchase. Folks say it's minor, but I haven't unwrapped it yet. I really wanted the POTC 2 because of the PQ reviews I've read, but at $15.00 I figured I'd pick up the 2nd at well. I don't think it's likely that Disney will replace any current copies because, unlike the first iteration of The Fifth Element, the issue appears to be only a few seconds of the film. But there's always hope.
Speaking of The Fifth Element, I'm watching it right now and it just pops off the screen. From all reports, the initial transfer was crap, but this "remastered" version pops off the screen and really does highlights the extreme color palette used.
Also just received Smallville: Season 6 on Blu Ray from an amazon.com seller. They advertised it as "Used- Like New", so I was shocked to receive a new/sealed copy for all of $45 w/shipping. Haven't watched it yet, but I'll report on it for those interested as soon as I have a chance.
