1.0 out of 5 stars No extras on UK disc, 17 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
WHY oh WHY are there four featuretes and a trailer on the US-blu-ray and none on the UK version?
Sorry, but zero stars for such a zero treatment on HD. There's no excuse.
Just stupid trailers you've got to watch before the film (that would appeal to a totally different audience, too). And as if to mock the buyers, there's a warning that "Bonus Material/Trailer may not be SDH" (ie. subtitled).
Buy the American 20th century Fox blu-ray, but not this joke from Entertainment on Video.

4.0 out of 5 stars Genuine looker, at a decent price tag, 17 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Perfect fit for my MacBook Pro. Only lower edges bend slightly, but this is to be expected seeing as the sleeve is flat without the MacBook in it. Looks and feels like leather, and thus seems expensive. Only the color is minimally misleading: the sleeve is a touch lighter and tending towards a slightly cheaper brown than in the photograph.
Sleeve is strengthened on front an back, presumably through cardboard only (could be plastic, though). On side only protection comes from the sleeve's outer and inner layer, so this doesn't protect against rough transportation, but will do well to protect against dust and crumbs in your bag. The seam bends out at sides, and this does add a little extra protection, but not much. I'd say enough for a sturdy notebook like the MacBook Pro, if you're not too clumsy.
I'd definitely buy it again. Recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars Extremely poor quality blu-ray, 26 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I also have the 2010 NTSC DVD (also from Eagle Home Entertainment), which was letterboxed 4:3. What with a change from 720x480 pixels to 1920x1080, I expected a significantly superior quality, but this was not so. The image is only minimally superior, and at best similar to an average widescreen DVD. There is no image detail visible, contrast is low, I would even think that sometimes deinterlacing artifacts are still visible, pointing to a lowres source!
This is a shame, and a dreadfully disappointing treatment for one of the best films to come out of India over the last ten years. The film is superb and a welcome blend of drama and Bollywood.
The blu-ray disc, however, cannot do the power of the film justice. It is to be hoped, that Eagle Movies doesn't continue to spoil the market for Hindi blu-rays by releasing such blownup discs. The only thing blu-ray about this release is the medium, but the quality is that of a substandard DVD. The disc is also barebones, without even a trailer for the film. And while the packing is nice, with an extra cardboord cover, it too reflects the poor quality of this release: when I unwrapped the disc for the first time (it arrived fully sealed), I found a deep scratch, and fingerprints on the dataside of the disc.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing box set, 1 Nov. 2009
Clearly, this box set does not deserve the label 'The Orson Welles Collection'. Get it if you're interested in the TV Lear - but otherwise don't bother. The quality is really bad.

There are better versions of 'The Stranger' out there and you will not be interested in the 'David and Goliath' (trust me).
