Some people still believe that films shot using the latest digital cameras have more detail than older films shot in 35mm, the plain fact is that a well restored film from the thirties can look every bit as good as a film shot yesterday.
Also out in April is the theatrical editions of The Lord Of The Rings trilogy. Personally i will wait until the extended editions hit the market but this should please many people.
I don’t like the UK or American editions of The Office but i thought Steve Carell was perfect casting for the role of Agent 86 Maxwell Smart and he played the role nicely.
I am not totally convinced that the look of most of this film is not intentional given it’s fantasy world setting but i also don’t rule out DNR by New Line.
The Strangers cost $9 million dollars to make and grossed around $82 million worldwide. The film itself is an effective thriller with a good music score and an excellent sound mix.
All medium to long distance camera shots on the DVD edition were blurry and lacked detail, the Blu Ray edition restores all this lost detail. In my opinion even with a new state of the art transfer using the best film elements this will not look significantly better than it does here.
This film contains a lot of computer graphic effect shots and i thought the image quality for this type of film was excellent. I saw no compression issues or other problems with the transfer.
I found the film rivetting and Cruise’s performance was excellent. The supporting cast also did a fine job and Bryan Singers direction was good.
I love old classic black and white horror movies so i am hoping the Wolfman with it’s excellent cast turns out to be a very good movie.
Poltergeist should not be compared to a film shot anamorphic in 2010. I personally think this film looks superb and i always felt i was watching a film and not processed video.
HD screencaps of The Wizard Of Oz on the Blu Ray format. I consider the image quality to be mostly excellent except for one particular isolated moment. This moment can be seen in Blu Ray screencap 6
My Bloody Valentine 3D also has a 2D option on the Blu Ray disc but i see no point in watching this film in anything other than the original 3D format.
The screencaps should give you an idea of how good this film looks in high definition and i think it looks gorgeous.
