2.0 out of 5 stars citizen kane blue ray uk, 24 Nov. 2012
This review is from: Citizen Kane [Blu-ray] [1941] (Blu-ray)
The UK Universal Bluray is a different print from the the USA Warner BD.. release... the UK release is hugely inferior in picture quality with much print damage and poor contrast.....The USA release is completely free of these problems and is a superb presentation...The Region 1 release is Region Free.....

Dear Martyn,

Thank you for the alert, I had misgivings with this release it being one from Universal (given their unenviable track record, given what I myself have viewed), you answered quite precisely the questions I had in mind. I re-name you Citizen Kare. Much appreciated and fully helpful.

Addenda - Universal Blu-rays really are a uneven lot, their "To Kill a Mockingbird" is flat and lifeless, utterly robbed of emotion, their James Whale "Frankenstein" sports clear sound and a delicious image with real depth. Thus all is not totally lost with Universal, just very close to "totally".

This blu-ray was sodding egregious! They even have a self-congratulatory restoration feature which amounts to little more than denial of just how much the work they have done sucks. Supposedly, it doesn't suck, it merely looks "authentic". I'm getting sick and tired of these desecrations. Easily the worst blu-ray I own, so bad I snapped it in half in frustration at how unnecessarily bad it is, a frustration compounded by the restoration feature. They could have got drunk and wiped their bottoms with the reel, and still they would have congratulated themselves.

Thank you for the heads up! Reviews like this are just what Blu-ray buyers, like myself, want to know. That is the worry with old movies (pre 2007-2008) converted to Blu-ray, you never know what you are going to get. I hate being ripped off.

Best regards, Valerie

Agreed, very disappointing. Yet another opportunistic blu ray rip off. No shame is there, to do this with one of the most revered films of all time? I'll save up for the Criterion, an outfit that delivers at a price, but well worth it.Citizen Kane [Blu-ray] [1941]
