Forget the whining and the moaning. Forget it all.

Yes, we could have done with JUST the films on Blu-ray and not all the same extras, but we have them and that's that.
Yes some of the green-blue colour change/darkening in "Fellowship" seems overdone in in certain scenes or details, but most of the time these changes are in fact a vast improvement in picture quality and general aesthetics.

And quite frankly the most important thing is simply this...do the Blu-rays offer up a stunning looking, major upgrade from DVD, transfer?

Remember when George got angry at hearing Steve Strange's "Fade to Grey" on the radio? Hard to do that when on the DVD the song is now missing.
Remember that lovely and superbly crafted seduction scene on the bed, perfectly scored by Hazel O'Connor's "Will You"...a great song that truly made the scene? Well no "Will You" remains on DVD.
Remember all those great tracks in the club? No more. All gone. No Bowie, no Kraftwerk, no… Read more
