Classic Kubrick in High Def!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dr Strangelove [Blu-ray]  [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
A classic black comedy from Stanley Kubrick in high definition. Great film, as you probably know already. The transfer has some grain, which is normal for this film was shot in black and white in 1963. Some may complain that the original multi aspect ratio previously available was not used. I am not complaining, as I think the 16X9 look doesn't lose much info, and it looks and sounds great.
I might add that I live in the States, but got this version as the U.S. version is housed in that damn Digi-book thing that Warner has been using a lot for classic films. Some may like it, but, not me. They get dusty, banged up, and the book has pretty useless info that any fan that's buying this film probably knows already. It's mostly pictures. Notice that after a time, Warner is reissuing most of these in a non Digi-book version. I bought North by Northwest from the U.K. for the same reason.
