2.0 out of 5 stars Good movie but a horrible transfer., May 13, 2013
By 
This review is from: One Hour Photo [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
If you own the dvd already I wouldn't recommend this upgrade until Fox fixes the transfer issues and they release it again. The film is good and Robin Williams really shows off some terrific acting skills but there are a handful of scenes that have quite a bit of 'jitter' that is almost headache inducing. It's the worst case of frame jiggle I've seen on a bluray (Sex, Lies and Videotape and Secretary have some wobble but not as bad as this.) Also the color is over saturated in some scenes especially with blues and in other scenes the color is not quite right. To add fuel to the fire there are quite a few black specs on the film. Damn, it could have at least been cleaned up. I've got 50 year old movies that look better than this one.
The audio (DTS lossless 5.1) is hands down an improvement over the dvd, the score comes through much better along with dialogue being clean. No audio issues at all.
After watching the bluray I'll stick with the dvd because it doesn't give me a headache. This is the first time I've said that.. I'm a bluray junkie.
I hope the company finds some new source material or whatever and reissues this/offers a free switch.

It's a PRODUCT rating. This isn't rotten tomatoes, it's amazon.

Great review Mike. This jitter made me think my eyes were going or something. I do not want to get a headache watching a film.
Will most likely sell off the Blu Ray during my next yard sale and keep the standard DVD version. This was a shoddy attempt visually speaking and should not have been released in this condition.
