3.0 out of 5 stars evil of frankenstein Blu Ray, 23 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The picture quality of this BLURAY is generally very good indeed with excellent colours and in thankfully the correct film ratio ...however I suspect much of the grain has been removed in digital processing which gives a very smooth like appearance which distracts from a genuine film look....On the real downside is the fact that FINAL CUT have decided NOT to include SUB-TITLES of any language for the main feature....considering the high cost of the BLU RAY this is NOT acceptable and the people who are most likely to purchase are probably elderly who have developed Hard of Hearing problems with age.....

For those people with HOH problems the packaging states ; English and Spanish Sub-titles are included .............BUT there are NO sub-titles of any sort included which is typical of STUDIO CANAL trying to something on the cheap.....

Picture quality is absolutely fantastic on the Blu-ray release ...the colours are magnificent and show real depth....clarity is outstanding . Sound is very clear at all times AND NETWORK SHOULD BE CONGRATULATED . Furthermore ENGLISH SUB-TITLES only for the movie HAVE BEEN INCLUDED which is something unusual for Network but are most welcome for the HOH people...

3.0 out of 5 stars Zaytoun dvd, 15 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Zaytoun [DVD] (DVD)
Artificial Eye up to their old tricks again of releasing .... this time a DVD in which there are NO SUBTITLES in English when English is spoken which is very often during the movie .....those with HOH problems will suffer badly....Subtitles are in English ONLY when a foreign language is spoken . My advice is TO WAIT for the USA release as the Region 1 releases for this type of film almost always carry TWO sub-title tracks ..1 . movie subtitled in English all the way through 2 .Subtitled in English as the UK release i.e only in foreign language .

1.0 out of 5 stars 360 bluray dvd, 14 Jan. 2013
This review is from: 360 [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Those people with HOH problem might like to know that ENGLISH SUB-TITLES are eliminated when the actors speak English... which is very often....and are only included when foreign languages are spoken. It is about time that ARTIFICIAL EYE ended this on going practice with their releases as there are many people of ALL ages who have hearing problems and would appreciate English SUB-TITLES whatever language is being rendered...FOR ALL THE FILM .

This excellent film has ENGLISH SUB-TITLES only...although there is no mention of this on the rear packaging... hopefully this bit of information maybe of use to a few people..

2.0 out of 5 stars citizen kane blue ray uk, 24 Nov. 2012
The UK Universal Bluray is a different print from the the USA Warner BD.. release... the UK release is hugely inferior in picture quality with much print damage and poor contrast.....The USA release is completely free of these problems and is a superb presentation...The Region 1 release is Region Free.....
