4.0 out of 5 stars 'JOE KIDD' PLAYS BY HIS OWN RULES., 7 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Joe Kidd [Blu-ray] [1972] [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
screen legend 'Clint Eastwood' plays a familiar role as a no-nonsense
lone gunman.
'Joe Kidd' is hired by land baron 'Frank Harlam' to track down 'Luis
Chama'
'Luis Chama' fronts the claim on land for his people, all relevant
paperwork having been lost in a fire, 'Frank Harlam' owns much of the
land being claimed by 'Mexican' 'Chama' for his fellow countrymen.
'Joe' doesn't like the way 'Frank' conducts business as a consequence
of which he changes sides.
plenty of gun action follows.
not one of 'Clint's' best perhaps, however his screen presence is as
always - 'Dominant'
sadly, picture quality is not as good as it might have been, film studio's
know that films with screen heroes such as 'Clint' will be in demand
when released on this format, just feel more consideration in upgrading
should be normal practice...
when you see the picture quality on Blu-ray of even older films such as
'Lawrence of Arabia' and 'Zulu' among many.....it just proves it can be
done ???

In what way is the picture quality less than it should be?

Many films from the same era have been released with, lets say, superior picture
quality, there may be technical reasons for this, I have found many of 'Clint's'
movies that have been released on the 'HD' format are a little disappointing.
I love 'Clint's' movies, to answer your query, the picture quality is a little sharper
than that of the 'DVD' copy ( which I also own )
Sadly I have little knowledge of the technical in's and out's........I can only comment
on how I see-it so to speak.
