Scanners Blu-ray Limited Edition Steelbook,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Scanners (Limited Edition Steelbook) (Blu-ray) (Blu-ray)
The steelbook of Scanners is a lovely looking item but it was lacking a booklet inside the case, i have rated it 4 stars because of this reason. For a limited edition release they could have at least included a booklet with some background tales on the movie and some still photos etc.
The Blu-ray transfer of this movie is simply stunning for such an old movie! The picture is very sharp throughout most of the movie with vibrant colours and contrast used perfectly, and just the right amount of subtle noise to give it that filmy feel. You have a choice of two audio tracks, either a Stereo PCM track or 5.0 DTS HD MSTR. I chose the 5.0 DTS HD MSTR and i found it very good indeed, lots of fine detail in the track with crisp and clear dialogue throughout. (i did play it through a home cinema separates system)
The extras were quite good as well which included an interview by it's main star and then some interviews about the "Chaos of Scanners" and the "Special Effects" in the movie.
I definitely recommend this Blu-ray release
