I would love to own the M:I films on blu-ray and for this price I don't really mind the issues with the audio. What I do mind is the lack of M:I-3's 2nd disc of special features and because of that, I'm going to have to skip on this...
The Scandinavian set is excellent although it, too, is missing the disc of extras from MI3.
Also, I haven't been impressed with any of the movies really. The first was the most like the series but made the HORRIFIC mistake of making Jim Phelps the bad guy. WTF??? Ghost Protocol is probably the most entertaining after that. MI2 and MI3 are complete misfires.
Also for M:I fans, yesterday Amazon lowered the price of the Complete TV Series on DVD to $98.99. The 7 original seasons have been holding pretty steady around $150 since blue-ray.com started tracking them last September.
