5.0 out of 5 stars WOW!! Jackie Brown looks awesome on blu ray!!!, 12 Aug 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Jackie Brown (Blu-ray) (Blu-ray)
Just gotta say, I am glad to have purchased this French import blu ray. Jackie Brown looks brilliant in 1080p!!
Have had home video versions on Laserdisc and DVD, not very satisfied with the bleeding of colors and lack of detail (even on the DVD)...but now, thanks to hi-def, Jackie Brown finally gets its due! The detail in the picture is outstanding, as are the colors. The yellows (and other colors) are bold and pop off the screen. The aspect ratio is the original 1.85 and the DTS-HD soundtrack really shines (not like Pulp Fiction, but good enough) when the music is playing.
It also defaults to French Dolby Digital (I had to toggle through using the audio switch to get English DTS-HD 5.1).
There are NO extras, no chapter markings (you can chapter skip) on the bad menu. The menu (in French) is audio setting, and it doesn't work on my player (that's why you may have to use your audio button).
Although this is no special edition with good menus, this is still a find if you are a fan of this film. Too bad there isn't a UK version. A US version is planned in the next coming months and hopefully it will have special features.
Also of note: it is said to be Region B locked. It is marked Regions A and B and plays fine on my region free player set to Region A discs.
Don't spend a whole lot on this bare bones edition and wait for a special edition blu ray to be released.
