5.0 out of 5 stars Almost perfect Blu-Ray release, 20 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Midway [Blu-ray] [1976] [US Import] (Blu-ray)
This review is about the actual PRODUCT, not the film.

I was thrilled with this Blu-ray release for one particular reason: throughout the film, there are captions embedded on the screen to identify key figures and ships as they appear. This was how the film was originally shown in cinemas and on television. However, the DVD releases of "Midway" both in the UK and the USA elected to remove this valuable information, which made viewing the film difficult for someone trying to follow the complexity of the battles.
The picture quality is what you would expect for a 1976 film transferred to Hi-Definition. It's not perfect but it's a very good improvement over the DVD. The night-time shots are a little fuzzy, but the indoor/daytime shots are pretty good picture quality.

Trouble is that this version is NOT DTS 2.1 sensurround it's DTS 2.0 sensurround and the sound comes from the front 3 speakers only and all the time. NOT very good.

The technical stuff I have quoted is from the sleeve. I don't have the equipment to make the same accurate tests you evidently have. My review is based primarily on the quality of the picture/transfer.
