Ravenous [Blu-ray] [1999] [US Import] <b>Blu-ray</b> ~ John Spencer
Ravenous [Blu-ray] [1999] [US Import] Blu-ray ~ John Spencer
The two stars are for a mediocre transfer of an excellent, underrated, misunderstood movie. A black suspense-comedy that gains in ulterior viewings. Not an up-to-your-face comedy, of course. Wittly dialogues, marvelous actors, excellent production desing and music. Unfortunately, the transfer is not as good as it should; there is very little definition, the image is constantly blurry, like slightly out of focus. It looks as if it was treated with too much DNR and/or transferred from a master tape instead of a negative or print. It has not been restored or remastered either. Still, the best version currently available, but not quite up to the standards of high definition.

1.0 out of 5 stars Preposterous, 14 April 2014
Good biblical movies died with Charlton Heston. Nobody should bother on them anymore...let alone making something so ridiculous. Not that I am a christian or a believer...but I like good movies, and this one is bad, boring, predictable, utterly preposterous. Total cinematic trash. Doesn't Russel Crowe ever change the wooden look on his face? Come onnnnnnn!!!

In addition to the quality of the blu-ray itself (see other reviews), the music is also a problem. Rattle tries so hard to be original that he ends up being unbearable. Soft passages are too soft and loud passages are too loud. The worst is that he seems to have a train to catch or to be in a hurry to get home to Magdalena and the kids; I had rever heard such a preposterous last part of "Oh, Fortuna". To avoid, totally.
