3.0 out of 5 stars was very promising, 23 Aug 2014
Good prospect, well crafted to commence with, but a little of a let down as it is unravelled, sort of ok, however its hard to put a rating on this one, Justin Long tended to over act
Blu ray very good PQ overall 8/10

I took receipt of this Blue ray The whole audio mix was crap, Gallagher's voice is distant the whole mix pathetic, Steven Wilsons material shines in comparison to this rubbish, but what else can you expect? , Noel Gallagher is a talented songwriter but whow the audio is a big let down, fussy? yes Noel get someone else to produce your work

1.0 out of 5 stars 3d, 19 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was very surprised to find red and green cardboard glasses to view this 3D film. it was simply awful and not worthy of playing on a 50 inch TV with 3D, It reminded me of the days I used to go to the cinema, films with Vincent Price "House of Wax" so long ago its only value is historical, never mind the film content, which is sheer rubbish with an acting ability a monkey could do, Its worth having for the original 3D concept it was cheap so what can you expect

This review is from: Angelis (Audio CD)
Magnificent I played this CD on my system today, I was totally impressed with the recording, it was so beautiful to listen to, My speakers and amplifiers delivered these voices in absolute perfection, the tonal quality took me by surprise, the recording was faultless, I am fussy very fussy over quality, these young voices were unbelievable in range being sopranos, with a well orchestrated balance, its a shame they are no more

4.0 out of 5 stars across the universe blue ray, 19 Aug 2013
Great visual on this Blue ray. Audio is another thing,not all consumers have 7.1 true HD, most blue rays dvds, not all mind, give a DTS or 5.1 mix alternative audio mix, This title is giving commentary in DTS why? I presume its due to the music score, I have no amp with 7.1 decoder nor do I have seven speakers living in my apartment, I wish Sony would consider the audio aspect more carefully, just to enable poorer people with a decent full DTS system to enjoy formats that people have, I do appreciate that True HD is the way it is all going mainly with music of course it gives a superb listening experience , Good Stereo PCM is fine to listen to but lets have an option Sony thank you

2.0 out of 5 stars Pleasing, 17 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found this Blue ray transfer pleasing, however darker scenes don't do much justice for the HD aspect, not well defined, this production is 1995, the transfer is fair to average, outdoor scenes scrub up well,the audio level on DTS is low, having to crank my amplifier up to a lot higher level is required to get audible dialogue, its just not in the same the league of say "Cranford" However I purchased this Blue ray for the charm and period of this production. Ang Lee did a good job with direction, moving onto films like "Life of Pi" in 2012. I enjoy all period dramas "Sense and Sensibility" has been produced over a few years in different formats this production is well done. however the Blue Ray is average in visual quality
