3.0 out of 5 stars Joe-shmo Blu-Ray review, not movie, 29 Oct 2009
This review is from: Ocean's Eleven [Blu-ray] [2001] [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
Regardless of your feelings for Oceans Eleven (I admit, I quite enjoyed it, despite it being quite a light-weight bit of cinema), I'll be skipping over the movie to get down to the quality of the Blu ray disc:

Oceans Eleven is a product of style, and it's a grainy style at that. While it's never going to be the sort of film that will leave you awed, it has to be said the picture is a big leap from Warner's standard DVD. It's sharper, more vibrant and picture crawl that dogged the original release is gone. A definite improvement. Picture: 3/5

The audio is again outstanding, but only a subtle improvement over the original DVD. The music mix is immersive, and drips "cool". The range has also improved and the spatial effects are more defined, especially in the casino scenes. Again, not a jaw dropping improvement, but not bad at all. Audio: 4/5

The extras are pretty much what you got the first time around on standard def, but if you haven't already bought it on DVD, they are worth the purchase. For everyone else, you should probably think twice about upgrading unless you can get the Blu-ray disc for around a fiver. Extras: 3/5
