I was browsing online for news about the Midnight movie and came across this website. It's the first hard date I have seen mentioning a release date for the movie (on DVD).

I can't confirm this as being true, but I figured I'd share. Anybody else heard anything recently?

Amazon.fr also has it IN FRENCH  shock

http://www.amazon.fr/Midnight-chronicles-Charles-Hubbell/dp/B0025UAFLM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1243716481&sr=1-1

The first guys who watch it are welcome to share their opinions about it here... I'd like to know if it's worth buying (i'll still buy it anyway as part of my Midnight collection/addiction)

Hmm.. I can't seem to find it on the U.S. Amazon site.  Would someone be so kind to provide a link?  I'm hoping that if it is good enough it might help me convince my group to play in the setting.

I notice that the site lists the price in dollars, but the Region code is still 2... I really wish I knew how to switch my dvd player to Region 0 (uncoded)

Well, there are a lot of chinese DVD player that haven't any zone. They are about 40AUD down here, with 1year warranty. Even if they don't work after a while, it worth the price. They can also read DivX, Xvid, Jpeg etc. I'm a french guy in Australia. Zone2 for france, zone 4 for DownUnder. I bought two of them for my kids to let them watch both aussie and french dvds. It's very cheap for what you get.

And if you were talking about the dvd player on your PC, well, there is a software called AnyDVD that negates the zones. Again, french labtop, aussie DVD, games etc. I needed that. It works pretty well.
Zones are just ridiculous, only good for sedentary people. But as soon as you start to travel a bit, zones are getting more and more stupid...

I've seen it, and it's definitely worth owning if you're a Midnight fan. Smiley

Amazon.com still doesn't have it, but Amazon.co.uk does.
Unfortunately, the only review at this time isn't particularly positive... Sad

Granted, I saw it in french and dont speak a lick of it. But I think the movie isint that great. Espicaly capturing the feel of midnight. It feels too much like generic fantacy. These are supposed to be down troughten people who can't read or learn about anything but god and yet the can all still build fine looking houses with glass window?

I am actually surprised they didn't give me a screen saying: "We don't ship this type of item internationally".

I don't know if I'd trust that one review. I clicked on the guy's name and he's done 10 reviews. 8 of them are 1 star, one is 2 stars, and one is 5 stars.

Amazon.co.uk now gives it 2 stars cos I gave it a 3 star review. I tried to be rational in the body of the text. In hindsight I should have been a bit more biased. I should have said 4 star for a midnight fan. I really hope it sells well, it would be great for it to be made into a series as was their original intention. Hopefully ye guys in the States and Canada won't have to wait much longer

Pleased I wasn't attacked for a lowish score that I gave. I have commented on my review saying it's worth a four for an rpg fan. It is also available on www.play.com if people prefer to shop there. I do hope someone else reviews it and bumps the score up.

It does beg the question will FFG resurrect Midnight if the film proves sucessful?

we've been debating the status of Midnight for a while, Lkelly.  Seems like they probably had to see off much of the Intellectual Property rights to it for the movie (or other reasons), so it's unclear even if this is a big success what the eventual outcome will be.  But it is clear that AtS will be the main source of Midnight information in the foreseeable future.

Welcome to the boards, by the way.  Thanks for letting us know your review.  And I wouldn't worry about getting attacked here.  Everyone here is pretty nice, and we all understand that a review is an opinion that everyone is entitled to.  Also, just because someone put a label we like on any random movie doesn't automatically make it good (though I suppose Transformers 2 is proving that point wrong...)
