Blade Runner 2006 dvd reason to buy!,
This review is from: Blade Runner (Remastered Directors Cut) (DVD)
I just bought the new 2006 release (9.99 euro in a HMV sale here in Dublin) would agree with the majority of peoples disappointment re: the audio, (just Dolby stereo) the only thing I would say is that there is a substantial increase in the picture quality, probably not a re-mastering of the negative but a cleaner transfer to dvd with the better compression tools available now over those available in 1999, and for such a dark (brightness level wise!) film, it makes a big difference, plus its proper anamorphic not the 1999 cropped at the sides version. To reiterate: for 9.99 (in my case) its well worth for my favorite film ever. And I wouldn't hold my breath for the special edition release in 2007.
