4.0 out of 5 stars What would Brian Boitano do? He'd buy this, that's what!, 18 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: South Park: Bigger Longer Uncut [Blu-ray] [US Import] (Blu-ray)
As a South Park fanatic, I've been eargerly awaiting the UK release of this great film, however this looks unlikely for the time being. I'm reviewing the Blu-ray other than the film itself.

I'll start off by adding, this release is region free and can be played on Region B Blu-ray players.

Subtitles include: English, French and Spanish.

Ultimately, it is presented in English 5.1 Dolby TrueHD

Some people elsewhere on forums have speculated whether or not the release comes with a slip-case, mine however did not, but it's subjective as to which seller you purchase this from I gather.

At first I was slightly skeptical on how South Park would fare on Blu-ray. However, the picture and sound quality is most certainly a grand improvement from the DVD, and is well worth the investment (under £10) and has very few albeit brilliant special features. These being, several trailers (TV spots, teasers etc), the "What would Brian Boitano do?" music video and an audio commentary with Matt and Trey themselves (which was recorded in 2009, specifically for this release I imagine) spanning the whole length of the film (as opposed to the five-minute commentaries on the season releases). The audio commentary, whilst fascinating and enlightening is slightly disappointing as the duo behind the brilliance seem to have forgotten working on the film and often bring crew members in to help refresh their memory, plus another gripe being Matt Stone having the incentive to constantly add "like" to after every other word that interjects from his mouth.

On a final note, I'm going to warn buyers about purchasing the 2013 re-release of this product (most efficently, if you're planning on paying more for it), as to my disbelief I recieved the 2009 release as opposed to so the latest re-release.

In essense it's a very worthy release and is a must for any South Park fans out there. Please note, don't expect groundbreaking special effects and all that jazz. It's delightfully ruthlessly in-your-face crude, juvenile, political, outlandish and sheerly obscene. It's South Park in High-Definition.
