Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Outlaw Josey Wales [Blu-ray]  [US Import] (Blu-ray)
Clint Eastwood directs this 1976 production about the Missouri farmer who joins a Confederate guerrilla unit and ends up on the run from the Union soldiers who murdered his family which is finally released on Blu-ray but unfortunately only in the US, this is a digital transfer done for the Movie’s 35th Anniversary this presentation is a region-free 50GB disc which is encoded using MPEG-4 AVC codec in full 1080p resolution the aspect ratio is changed from the original 2.39.1 to 2.40.1this change does not change the look of the film at all the audio track has been changed from the 2000 release on DVD of Dolby Digital 5.1 English, in Mono: French and Italian soundtracks and also had subtitles English and Italian for the hard of hearing, French, Italian, Dutch, Arabic, Spanish, Portuguese and German, this Blu-ray has subtitles in French and Spanish and for the hard of Hearing in English only.
The Audio track has been up-graded to DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and also has Dolby Digital in French and Spanish 5.1 comparing this to the earlier DVD release I noticed that the colours have a greater depth along with a greater range of blacks the soundtrack is the real star of this disc the dialogue is easier to follow and the sound effects such as the horse’s hoofs thunder across and the more ambient sounds such as the running water in the ferry scene has a better sense of realism in fact all the elements of the audio have been improved.
The Special features now include commentary by Richard Schickel a new featurette: Clint Eastwood’s West older feature include Eastwood in Action and Hell Hath no fury – The Making of The Outlaw Josey Wales and theatrical trailer which are all in standard definition..
