Great movie, terrible blu-ray,
This review is from: Escape From New York [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
As a huge Carpenter fan I was looking forward to this disc. Sadly when I inserted it into my PS3 what I saw was deeply disappointing. The picture quality is absolutely dreadful, completely lacking in detail and riddled with masses of so called 'edge enhancement'. It looks like a bad DVD, and nothing like high-def.
The audio is better, but it certainly doesn't make up for the hopeless picture quality.
Also, the disc has a couple of extras but strangely none of them would work on my PS3. They just span the disc for a second then went back to the main menu. Seems somehow appropriate for this completely broken BD release.
