5.0 out of 5 stars an epic restoration of an epic film, 25 Nov. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
the bridge on the river kwai blu ray is one on the best restorations i have ever seen.the picture is faultless,no scratches,no dust,no marks visible its just perfect.the colours are bright and the picture is crystal clear this is a master class in how restorations should be done,its obvioulsy been given the loving attention it so rightly deserves.the film its self is fantastic a true classic from 1957.all the acting is spot on and alec guinnes is just perfect as the commanding officer.this is well worth the £8 asking price,and deffo one for your blu ray collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars brillaint restoration effort for blu ray, 22 Nov. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
my all time favourite war film on blu ray .given the age of the film i was sceptical when i head this was going to be released on blu ray but my worries soon lifted when i started to watch it.from what i have read in a magazine the original negatives for this film were in a very sorry state,worn,scratched,damged,full of dust and marks.well the people that have restored this have done an amazing job,the blu ray transfer is brilliant,they have given the film a new fresh look,ok its not ever going to be the best blu ray ever,and in parts of the film the damage of the print does show,but its very few and far beetween.the high def picture is on the whole very good,colours are good,and the detail is all there,and there faces do not look like they are made of pink plastic,so its not been over processed.for £8 this will be the best value 2hrs and 25 minutes entertainment you will ever get.

1.0 out of 5 stars awful blu ray transfer, 22 Nov. 2011
well at long last the blu ray of one of the best british films ever made appears on high def.well where do i start?1st off the film itself is magic ive watched it loads of time now and i never get board of it.it says on the back of the cover remasterd in high def but from what ive seen its not this is just a port over from the dvd of the film there is so much grain in the picture you cant see any of the details in the supposedly high def picture,the opening scene of jimmy standing on the cliff in the sunset.the orange in the picture looks like millions of small ants crawling all over the picture its awful!as you move on in the film you can still see scratches and dirt where its not been removed in the supposed remaster.if you were to ask someone who made this hi def transfer they will say that its so grainy because of the age of the film,thats total rubbish look at the blu rays of dr no ,thunder ball,goldfinger,and the fantastic blu ray of north by northwest,all look like they were made for blu ray.if you have got this film on dvd just upscale it on you blu ray player.this is just a money spinner for universal,KEEP YA MONEY IN YOUR WALLET AVOID AT ALL COSTS!

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 STARS FOR THE PICTURE,0 STARS FOR THE FILMS, 14 Sept. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
well here we have at long last the "original" but not so original star wars films on blu ray.right well the 5 stars are for the picture and sound as its really really good looks like it was filmed yesterday in 1977 style.BUT ITS NO STARS FOR THE FILMS.why oh why has george lucas had to tinker with the films yet again!!!! cgi and some re edits for dialogue.ok i agree in this day and age cgi looks awesome in films that it was made for but not try and add stuff to films,ie jabba the hut and moss islay in star wars a new hope,the city in the sky and other added bits in the empire strikes back,and as for return of the jedi!!!!why the added added dialouge when darth vader throws the emporer down the pit ???????noooooooooooooooooooooo way should have that been added just totally ruins the whole film.i have the original star wars films on vhs and there a dam site better then this tripe.and why did george lucas not put the originals on the blu ray disks as well?? or is this going to be yet another money spinner for them to be re released on blu ray at a later date??lucas needs to sit up and listen to the fan base of the original films as we are the ones who made him rich.
he needs to take a look at the alien box set to see how things should be done,the original films,and the directors cuts all there on the box set,plus hours and hours of extras.if your a die hard star wars fan buy thid but if not avoid this box set at all costs!

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
this has been one of my all time favourite films of all time and when i seen this on amazon on blu ray i just had to order it.this being an old film i was sceptical on how good the film would look on blu ray,but as soon as i played it i was blown away by the quality of the picture.its awesome,it just looks just so so good.this has to be one of the best restorations i have yet seen its up there with the best of them.add this to your collection you wont be dissapointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars fantastic blu ray, 30 Aug. 2011
im not going to go into a review of the film here just about the quailty of the film its self.
the quailty of the film is awesome,looks like it was made yesterday,the colours are bright and the image is just fantastic,you can pick out all the fine detail in the picture.the only downside is the picture is 4x3 and not widescreen!ive only given this 4 stars for the 4x3 picture but overall a fantastic blu ray deffo one to add to your colletion.

5.0 out of 5 stars totally awesome phone,better then an iphone 4 !, 31 May 2011
i bought this as a replacement for my now age old htc legend,and im so glad i did.the phone dont look much to look at when you 1st see it just a black slab of plastic,but turn it on and the 1st thing that hits you smack in the face is the screen its just totally eye popping,its a huge screen and its just so so clear.after 5 or so minutes i had this set up for the mobile internet and web browsing on this is just amazing its just so quick and the web pages load in an instant,and looking on you tube its faultless,the video is smooth as silk.with this being a dual core processer phone i tried to slow it down with loads of apps open at once but no it still ran smoothly no slow down what so ever.a freind of mine has the iphone 4 and this just tottaly blows it out of the water.i uploaded a film onto this and i watched it on the bus and the picture on the phone is amazing,and whilst i was watching this i was recieving e mails and messages as well,still just carried on playing the film.the 8 meg camera on here takes fabulous pictures as well i printed a few out today,no pixelating or anything on the pictures at all.ive yet to try the video on this but if its like the rest of the phone then its going to be good.this phone is worth every single penny,buy 1 now you wont be dissapointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars if you hate christmas you will love this film, 26 Jan. 2011
i,and im sure im not in a minority,aint really a big fan of christmas,so i got this film just to see what it was like,ha ha ha im glad i did its so funny. billy bob is really good as the "bad santa" he drinks he swears and he dont like kids. it looks at christmas from another point of view and its not like all the other films that hollywood churn out for the christmas holidays.as the story unfolds you soon see what him and his little friend are really up to.it has you in fits off laughter,but there is a quite sad ending to it.the f word is used lots of times and if you dont like dark humour then this film is not for you,but if dont like christmas then this film should be in your collection,this sits alongside my other fave christmas film the grinch.

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant blu ray player, 25 Jan. 2011
right well had a bit of an issue with the 1st player amazon sent me,but 1 quick call to the amazon help line and amazon sent me a replacement,which arrived 4 days later. this was bought as a replacement for a profile 1.1 player and i am not dissapointed in anyway at all.i took it out the box,connected it to the internet,updated the firmware and bingo just about perfect.the picture from this player is brilliant a real step up,and it upscales normal dvds as well,my dvd collection has never looked so good.the sony internet tv is good as well with bbc i player,5od,and i love film,all streamed straight onto your tv,and i have read that sony are also going to add itv player and channel4od at some time as well in the near future.i have this connected to my 46inch hd tv and it just blasts my old blu ray player out of the water,ive not got a 3d tv yet so cant comment on that,this is worth every single penny.brilliant player and the service i had form amazon was second to none.

1.0 out of 5 stars good anti virus,slow computer performance, 25 Jan. 2011
i bought this antivirus as the reviews were very good.i installed this on a powerful computer running windows 7 but it made my computer run very very slow.the antivirus engine its self is very very good but the programme its self is very heavy on computer resources.it takes an age to load internet explorer,and anyother programmes.ithought it might of been my computer,so i uninstalled this and hey presto was back to full speed.i dont use this antivirus at all now.
