Cheaping out on the blu-ray
5 June 2013
Fantastic price for 2 great movies on blu-ray.
Okay, so Angels and Demons looks amazing on blu-ray. It's everything it's supposed to be, being set in the beautiful city of Rome and exploring the vatican. The movie is great to watch even if you don't care about the story (which I really liked).
What lets this box set down is the fact that The Da Vinci Code doesn't have that same blu-ray impact. The picture is very soft, and while the colours are nice and everything, it's certainly not as vivid as I expected. I was hoping for really good picture, given the content, but it's just not sharp and pristine like most blu-rays. It's still very close to the dvd transfer. I have older movies on blu-ray that outshine The Da Vinci Code.
This set is 2 normal blu-ray cases held together with a cardboard sleeve. Just in case anyone wants to know.
