Nothing more than a Cash Grab!!! Like TheManInBlu said let's wait for the set with all four films ... But then Tom Cruise will make M.I. 5 and there will be a 5 disc set. Then, M.I. 6 will lead to a six disc set.

I'll wait years until Paramount decides to put LOSSLESS audio, port over the 2-disc special features of MI:III over the blu-ray, and finally, wait until they put bonus features that don't feel 200% Tom Cruise-oriented with his patented smiles and "everything was great", "congratulations", "lots of fun", etc.

@gobohobo: did you notice Tom Cruise looks younger on each poster and, in the movie, it's the exact opposite? He's like a Benjamin Button spy... pretty soon, he'll only need to put straps behind his head, there'll be no more need for the patented masks.

Absolutely no reason to purchase this set. First off....NO LOSSLESS AUDIO TRACK...as everyone mentions, and secondly, why waste money on this when the 4th film comes to Blu-ray there will be a 4 disc set, which will make this trilogy set even more useless than it already is.

Paramount....stop making consumers look like idiots, we are too smart for your cash grab methods. Release a proper DTS lossless audio track on all films and then maybe you guys will gain some respect.

Such a SHAME!

I wouldn't bet on a 4 film set when Ghost Protocol comes out. If they're releasing this now, why do another box set in four months.

Ghost Protocol will have a single release by itself. It won't be packaged with the first three. Bet on it.

The term "cash grab" is becoming such knee-jerk cliche anymore. First off, anyone who already has these movies and would be dumb enough to buy this set deserves to be ripped off. Second, anyone who buys this set will surely buy the individual release of the fourth one and not the 4 movie set, or they deserve to be ripped off. This set is clearly aimed at those who don't already own the movies. Sheesh...

I know you all a disappointed because this is not the release you want.

But look at the basics. At less than 10.00 per movie Paramount is simply offering a box set of the existing product to generate gift sales for the holidays for those that do not have the current releases.

They in no way priced this as a re-master, it is priced appropriatly for what it is. So there is nothing really anything to complain about.

By the pricing it is blatently obvious that this is not an attempt to get people to double dip since the price really reflects nothing has changed. This is obviously targeted as a gift set and a set for those that want the existing releases.

@ Jedi there is such a thread:

http://forum.blu-ray.com/blu-ray-movies-north-america/153979-list-lossy-audio-blu-ray-titles.html

What does the poll tell you, huh? Blu-ray was made to increase the capacity of the optical disc storage media. This in turn allows movies to be stored at a higher quality than previously possible. This includes both Video and AUDIO, thats what I am paying for.

Lossless has potential to sound better than lossy given the right mastering and playback, but I would wager that most people on this site have neither the equipment nor the hearing ability to tell the difference in a blind A/B test.

Sorry, just had to say it.

repete66211,

You're absolutely wrong! If most people on this site are not equipped with High Definition A/V Receivers, featuring Lossless Audio capabilities, we wouldn't be complaining about the lack of lossless audio in the Mission Impossible Trilogy. True audiophiles will be able to hear the difference between HD audio, and standard Dolby Digital, and DTS very easily.

@slimdude: I contend exactly the opposite. I contend that most people would not be able to tell me if I'm playing lossy or lossless. I contend most people wouldn't be able to tell "very easily" the difference between the two in an A/B comparison. I contend that only those who are listening for it, have very high fidelity equipment and very good hearing can tell the difference "very easily". Don't get me wrong. I'm not saying there isn't a difference. There is. I'm just saying the difference isn't as night and day as many "true audiophiles" would have you believe.

Not only do these discs have lossy audio, but they seem to have less extras than the previous releases. It wouldn't surprise me if the image quality is no different than the last BD release (which was rather dissapointing for the first two films).

Chances are that, a year from now, they'll re-release a proper release of all four films with proper HD audio and better picture quality and all the extras. Until that happens, I'll pass.

A sizeable portion of the population won't find any difference between reasonable bitrate lossy VS lossless, imho. Of those who hear a difference, I bet a lot of them experiences a placebo effect, fully intended by the marketing. Bigger outta be better!

I think you want lossless medias to justify your spending on such receiver, regardless of the usefullness. The same happens with 7.1 tracks. Wanting 7.1 medias when the original, official soundtrack was 5.1 in the theater is just silly.

I think a full DTS stream (1.5 mbs) is sufficient for excellent fidelity and is compatible with existing equipement. I posit that most people would have been better served by placing 500$ on a better center channel speaker rather than replacing a perfectly good DD/DTS receiver to get lossless.

Actually, acoustic room treatment is more important than all of this.

Deromax:

Don't knock it, until you try it! Until you've hear, and experience the sound of High Definition 5.1 -7.1 audio, don't criticize it. If you're satisfied with lossy Dolby Digital, and DTS that's you're prerogative, but lossless audio is better.

@everyone. blu-ray.com doesn't constitute everyone. we are but a very small % of the general populous. studios do take us seriously... but they also know most people buy movies, not lossless audio tracks. so even if blu-ray.com members do NOT buy all lossy titles, they will make out ahead on profits, which is ultimately what they are about the most. we're just small potatoes. influential yes... lossless? they don't care!

@Deromax: Exactly. The tilt of your head or the placement of a pillow or ambient humidity can have a greater effect what you're hearing than the question of whether it's lossless or lossy.

Re placebo effect: That's what I was getting at with the blind testing. I know a guy who did an A/B comparison test. He'd play something, flip a switch and then play it again. Only one person caught on to the fact that the switch wasn't doing anything. The rest of the test subjects heard a difference.

I'm not anti-lossless. I'm all for the best bitrate we can get. However, if I really like a movie I'm not going to let a lossy soundtrack prevent the purchase. I'd put about 10 times more emphasis on PQ than AQ.

repete66211;

You've just contradicted yourself! If you want the best bitrate we can get, then why not request lossless audio soundtracks on Bluray? The blu-ray format was specifically created, design to offer the capability of superior overall high definition A/V quality, so should an enthusiasts settle for less? I don't think so! We're able to get standard Dolby Digital, and DTS, on DVD! The incompetence of Paramount Studios neglecting to encode lossless audio on this Mission Impossible Blu-ray Boxset is inexcusable, and unacceptable. Nothing has been remastered, nor improved on the boxset whatsoever, prior to they're first Blu-ray releases, so I don't see a justification to purchase the MI boxset at all, especially if you've already have the previous blu-ray releases because, there is no difference in the A/V quality.

@slimdude:

1.) Yes, the higher the bitrate the better. However, the degree to which equipment and the human ear can detect the higher bitrate is on a spectrum. If I have a choice between the two I want lossless. However, this doesn't mean I am able to tell that much of a difference*. It also doesn't mean I'm going to pout and refuse--REFUSE DAMMIT!!!--to buy a movie I would like to own just because it has a lossy audio soundtrack.

2.) Blu-ray was not specifically created for lossless audio. Blu-ray is a storage medium, not a the culmination of some artistic endeavor. The larger storage allows for larger audio tracks. So Blu-ray allows for such tracks to be included, but that's not why it was invented.

3.) I don't see a justification to purchase the MI boxset either. The "Extreme Trilogy" alone would make me too embarrassed to have it on my shelf.

*I've done A/B tests. I don't have the best equipment and I make no claim to "golden ears", but in all my tests I was never able to tell much of a difference between lossless and lossy audio--certainly never a "night and day" difference. And this wasn't even a blinded test, so I couldn't account for bias. In other words, I couldn't tell the two apart by much--if at all--when I was aware of which one I was listening to and *trying* to hear the difference.

That's not to say some people wouldn't be able to tell the difference on great equipment, in an ideal listening setting and with all variables & biases controlled for, just that there isn't a "night and day" difference between lossless and lossy for most people listening to most soundtracks in most situations.

Once again Paramount is attempting to Hoodwink people into buying an inferior product ...... This blu-ray edition has already been on sale for years ..... Nothing new except the packaging. I was hoping for the trilogy to be re-mastered with a lossless audio track... But it seems Paramount doesn't wish to go that route. They'd prefer to just milk the masses with a cheesy tie in for higher profits ...... I'll just hold on to my present set.

Well done Paramount

I'm not buying
