I picked up the BestBuy exclusive last week (came with a little Green Lantern figure, I know I'm a dork) anyway, it was OK.  I wasn't that impressed with it, but if you're like me and want to basically collect Marvel/DC DVDs then its worth it.  If you just want to see it. NetFlix.

I got the blu-ray.  I was a big fan of the New Frontier series.  The movie was good, obviously a lot was cut, Martain Manhunter wasn't the focus and the Challengers of the Unknown were cut out (mostly). I did like the way they used the Kennedy speech at the end.  Overall good, but definatley read the series...

I haven't had a chance to watch yet, but was gonna ask.. I thought I remembered an interview that hinted that the John Henry allusions that were scattered throughout the books may not make the cut... say it ain't so!!??
