Great 'Film', Disappointing Blu-ray.
on 28 March 2014
This is a classic from 1978, there is no doubt about it.
BUT we are missing the point of what a BLU-RAY disc is all about!!
I would have liked:
1) The option to watch the TV full length version
2) The option to watch both versions in 4:3 or Widescreen
3) On the Region 1 box set is a commentary by Richard Hatch, Dirk Benedict and Herbert Jefferson Jr.
4) The Original cinema release poster art on the cover
5) Isolated soundtrack
6) Behind the scenes features from 1978
I thought with the invention of Blu-ray we would get a better picture, sound and extra's as the space available on the disc is able to hold so much more information than a standard DVD.
I appreciate the better PQ but really all we have here is an upscaled re-release of the previous theatrical DVD!
Rather than knock this out and put it in a 3 for £17 deal - I would gladly pay £17 just for the release I want!
Missed Opportunity - Unfortunately.
