The postman was nice today, with my pre-order of the Kryrem vs The Sword of Justice Blu-Ray coming way sooner than I was expecting. However as expected it doesn't come with the Meloetta short, so I suppose everyone will need to hope that there is a release in the US or Europe at some point that is both on Blu-Ray and has the short, because I imagine that it's likely that you'll get one or the other, if the lack of non-Australian Blu-Ray releases continues.

It does however come with a Keldeo card, which at least makes a bit more sense than the Pikachu card that the White/Black Movie Blu-Ray came with. Some editions supposedly include a poster as well, mine didn't. I do wish they'd put the sticker for it on the plastic wrap rather than on the case, those are a pain to get off.



While I haven't watched them side by side to confirm exactly - the runtime difference between this and the Cartoon Network airing seems to just be filled with 5 minutes of credits and some minor cuts at best to the rest of it. If you're not in it for the higher quality, then I might wait until there's some detail on the other releases of the movie to see if you can get the Meloetta short, it doesn't seem like you'd have missed giant bits of the movie watching it on TV.

I'm a big fan of the movie, one of my favourite ones in a while, especially after the quite poor Black/White movies and the fairly uninteresting Zoroark one - I posted a review on the forums when I watched it on TV, most of that is still what I think. I haven't properly sat down and watched it yet - just was happy to finally get it.

Someone mentioned in an earlier thread that they had problems playing back the disc in a US player because the menus were 25fps - in this the menus seem to all be the 29.94fps of an NTSC release, so perhaps things will be better there. I'm fairly certain that it is region free (the PC software I have for getting it to all play isn't conclusive on that). There are two audio tracks, a 640kbps 5.1 AC3 one and a 5.1 DTS track (~1.5Mbps).

Some random screenshots from it - 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10

Edit: I got another thing in the mail today, something that quickly made its way to my wall:


Seems someone in the warehouse noticed the giant pile of posters and decided to send me one - with a handwritten letter explaining it, which was nice. There was also a 'checklist' poster for buying the Black and White series of figurines and another one of the cards.

    So you got the normal case version with the card.

    I got the JBhifi version (exclusive to JBhifi).Llike yours the disc only came with the movie and no extras except it has a nicer cover when you open it.=)
    it also came with a card.


    I didn't get a poster. I'm not too bothered, the DVD case having all the pictures was more than enough for me.=3

    I have a feeling it depends on what store you buy from depends on which version you get. All of them are just the movie though with no extras on the disc.

    The one I posted above was a blu-ray from Jbhifi.

    I have a normal DVD version aswell that came from target with no card and practically similar to yours with nothing special at all.

    (I always buy 1 DVD and 1 blu-ray)

    Now that I think about another store was advertising poster. I'll just check up on which store.

    EDIT:
    Big W has the poster one.

    Funny thing was that I got it from Big W - so I'm not sure what happened there. I saw the JB one after I put my pre-order in, but I'd rather the regular style case - just wish they'd put in an insert.

    I took a closer look at Big W's website and the blu-ray version doesn't come with the poster. so that would explain why you didn't get it.

    The list on the site had 1 blu-ray which comes with the card. 1 standard dvd that comes with a card and another standard DVD which comes with card and poster.

    They must have not got enough posters to put in everything.

    I personally haven't seen the Kyurem movie in full yet, though it seemed pretty generic on the surface with a few differences, namely having a Pokemon villain and the main protagonist being the one to incite strife.

    I think the movie manages to make Kyurem to not really be a villain in the usual sense - they are fighting more as a test of strength rather than because of something.

    It's odd to think not having much of a reason behind everything is a good thing, but it's a nice break from saving the universe as a plotline for the movies. They've managed to show five legendary Pokemon in a movie without it just ending up as a blur of battles and Ash running up stairs, which is a plus.
