:lol:It's cool. I just read over it and was like 'that can't be right?'.
Hmmmm...I agree with his opinion on the film itself, but DVDbeaver said the audio was outstanding, whereas Bracke said the audio here is "lacking". Bit of a contrast, I think. But we'll have to wait and see. And, with a commentary, documentaries and other special features in HD, this gets a "Worth a Look" rating? Sounds like a pretty perfect blu-ray to me. The uncut version of the film, with great image quality, a lossless HD audio mix (with the original mono included), a commentary, the trailer, and like I said before, various special features in HD, and he says it's not a perfect blu-ray. Sounds like a perfect upgrade to me...
The thing I always find funny about Bracke's reviews of films in the slasher genre is that he pretty much talks them down and more or less states that he doesn't like them, yet he's the guy that wrote the Friday the 13th "Bible", Crystal Lake Memories.
Yeah for real! I was reading that review and was like, "errr....what the hell!?" I dunno, I never really agree with anything he says. He used to run DVDfile, and I remember scoffing at many of his reviews. I wonder sometimes if he even watches the DVDs he reviews. There was one review on DVDfile when Flashdance was re-released as a SE. The review stated that the image quality was more or less the same than the previous disc. That couldn't be further from the truth. The movie was shockingly remastered. Between the new and old disc it was like night and day. It's like he misses the mark about 70% of the time with his reviews.
It's hard to take Bracke's reviews too seriously. He pitched a hissy fit over the Halloween blu-ray. If you sort all the blu-ray reviews at that site by "Star Grade: Video", you'll see Halloween at the bottom of the list. His reviews have very little credibility with me.
I don't know if anyone has posted this yet but F13 Uncut Blu-Ray/DVD is cropped.... :cry:
WOW....that's pretty noticeable, actually. Then again, just checking it now, the R2 transfer from Warner is like a halfway point between that blu-ray still and the original 2004 transfer.
*And just looked it over (there are other nice reviews of Parts 2 and 3 on there, with some really interesting info about the new 2-D transfer of Part 3) but those stills are all from the DVD. A lot of times with blu-ray compared to their DVD counterparts (even when taken from the same print source) the blu-ray actually shows a bit more room/reveals more info in the frame. I'll wait for my blu-ray to arrive and make my own judgment.
Please keep us posted Matt, I hope the cropping is not a problem on the blu ray disc.
This is the case with the Blu-ray for Repo! The Genetic Opera apparently. I only have the Blu-ray and can't do a comparison but the reviews I've read mention that the Blu-ray has more information on all four sides.
Here's a blu-ray review:
I would take that review with a grain of salt.
i never can understand these reviews one person says WOW and the other says barely visable and crap ............. two stars movies on certain sites ( terminator f ex) looked almost 3 d to me
Guess the only thing you can do is find out for yourself
I'm not concerned about all of this. I still say it's uncut and looks pretty friggin sweet from the screenshots:
Here's another blu-ray review:
There's only one review that matters. The question is, when the hell is Rhett going to post it?
That hometheaterforum reviewer is an idiot (his comment on the film grain proves it). Friday the 13th has always looked AMAZING on the digital format. Sure it was low-budget, but even for a movie in general it's always looked fantastic. I remember when we first got a DVD player back in like 2000. Friday the 13th was the first DVD I ever bought and I remember being completely blown away, and that transfer still holds up really well.
"I'm not gonna slam it too hard because it is an older film"...yeah okay, almost NOTHING he said was positive.
Tonight, with any luck, with screenshots from the four different US releases.
Stop dreaming about my ex and my sister and get it the fuck done! :banana:
