Excellent film...Poor Blu-Ray
on 9 October 2011
Let me start by saying that this movie is in my favourite top 20 so my star rating is purely on the Blu-Ray product as are all my reviews.
Picture quality is a SLIGHT improvement from the DVD , but only just !
The sound is fair , although being a none action film my speakers and AV receiver wasn't really put to any real test , but the music score sounded pretty good.
The main reason this gets such a poor star rating is the lack of features of which there is a big fat ZERO!!!!
No audio choices , no behind the scenes , no commentaries , no interviews... not even a trailer , absolutely NOTHING !
Even the home menu page looks rushed and poorly designed and the whole thing just looks like it was done at 5 to 5 on a Friday by someone who had other things on their mind.
For me , given the enormous amount of space you can fit on a Blu-ray (50GB) it just seems like a waste , and no one seems to have bothered to even try as I'm sure there must be interviews/behind the scenes footage somewhere.
The DVD was the same with the lack features , so this really is the most basic of transfers which is a real shame and is a real pet hate of mine when a company who does the transfer just doesn't give you anything more , or put any real effort into making upgraded technology much better than the old !
Managed to get this for under £6 so it's the price that sold me on it and would add nicely to my Blu-Ray collection.
Minimum effort for minimum price...Hoo-Hah !
