1.0 out of 5 stars Poor Quality Recording, 26 May 2010
I find no fault with the film itself. It is a jolly good romp through catastrophy and a triumph of CGI. However, the standard of reproduction of this Blu-ray disc is abominable. There are stretches of the recording that are no better than a tape-to-tape. The standard disc is infinitely superior and I would recommend everyone should buy that instead of the Blu-ray edition. It has made me think twice about buying Blu-ray again.

If you wish to savour every character: Smiley, Adlelene, Control, Perdeau... watch this rendering, and sit back and enjoy the genius of le Carre.

The clarity and colour excel as do the ergonomics... and the sound is up there with the very best. Give your CD's spin and you will be greatly impressed, that is if you can tear yourself away from spinning every DVD you have!

In this DVD Guiness is as smooth as his beveridge namesake and the genius of le Carre carries us in to a world of intrigue and mystery like few writers can.

5.0 out of 5 stars 2001 - A Space Odyssey, 29 Jan. 2010
The genius of Krubrick is even more apparent in this Blu-ray rendering. The scenes are etched to almost painful clarity and the colours are as pure as those of a glorious sunset. We are there with the ape men, when their screaches envelope us and, in the silence of space, we are given a sense of its formidable immensity.

The entire origninal screening is shown for the first time in many years and never before has it been shown with such clarity. Perhaps too much as the prosthetics that age the actors is all too apparent. However, their acting and presence is still as powerful and entertaining as ever!

On ordinary DVD some of the scenes in this film were almost incomprehensible, but Blu-ray fixes that and then some! This scary film becomes truely terrifying when shown as it should be and really benefits from 1080!

This review is from: Reign Of Fire [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
This sci-fi fantasy movie really benefits from Blu-ray, lending its most awesome scenes an immediacy that transends the former limits of palpability. Not only that it has a clever and original plot.

Not as good as previous renderings of this mystery, but it does star Shirle Eaton and the celluloid almost melts.

This is an atmospheric, sci-fi movie that tickles the imagination, and renders up an awesome ending.
