Shoddy Blu Ray presentation of great film,
This review is from: Battle of Britain [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
The film itself is excellent. Highly realistic, perhaps because so many things were filmed for real in an age when computer generated special effects were simply not available. And with actors of the calibre of Michael Caine, Trevor Howard, Ralph Richardson, Christopher Plummer and Laurence Olivier on top form there are no complaints about the acting.
What is deeply irritating is that as so often the format of Blu Ray has not been exploited to its potential. Indeed, there is little more detail than an upscaled DVD. Further, where are the special features that a Blu Ray disc has ample room for? They're available on the DVD, so why not on the Blu Ray? It is this kind of, "oh, as long as we make it available on Bluray, they'll buy it" arrogance on the part of the film companies that threatens to marginalise this great format. Very disappointing.
