Raiders looks good, sound epic and loud on blu ray
26 April 2018
The movie looks good and sounds great on this region-free blu ray. The image is a bit darker than on previous releases (VHS; dvd). This blu ray does include a slightly cleaned-up print of the film (so that the cobra's reflection is no longer visible on the plexiglass protection for Harrison Ford during the Well of Souls sequence). Sound effects are particularly loud (whip cracking; gunshots), and John Williams' grand orchestral score thunders here. This is a bare-bones blu ray (with 3 trailers including the early teaser from early '81), which is just fine- you can always get hold of the multi-pack set for the documentary. But if you only want the movie to preserve for future viewings/generations, then get hold of this one- it's a classic. This is an ideal purchase if you only want the first of the 4 films (so far).
