4.0 out of 5 stars Blue Ray transfer problems?, November 13, 2011
By 
This review is from: Jurassic Park: Ultimate Trilogy (Blu-ray + Digital Copy) (Blu-ray)
I bought this new release with some concern regarging the negative reviews (by some) of the blu-ray transfer quality. I viewed this on a new panasonic LCD TV and a new panasonic disc player. The quality of the image was not a problem. I'm a very critical viewer who has sensitive eyes and has to turn off the back light function for all viewing during day and evening. This lack of back light can be compensated for by turning up the brightness. That being said, I was impressed with my viewing of disc 1 "Jurassic Park." The image was sharp and clear. I've noticed that scenes in dark, low contrast conditions tend to be less so with Blu-ray, in general. Using the back light function will compensate for this, but I choose not do so to avoid the eyestrain that will result. Jurasic park was better than the other movies I've seen in this regard. In fact it was almost not noticable in comparison to other Blu-ray films I have seen. Overall I was very impressed with the quality of the viewing image. I suspect that those who had problems with the quality may have had a disc player that needed some updating.

My only complaint with the film is after a few minutes on pause, the image is lost to a Universal screen logo, and you can't get back into the film by pressing "play." This is a result of the "timeline" bookmark feature that comes up whenever you press the pause button. Just press the green button on the remote and the feature will resume where you left off (whether you originally chose to bookmark the pause or not). If you don't do this you will find yourself in the main menu starting the film from the beginning if you press other buttons trying to get back into the film.

Overall, the image is quite good and anyone who is a fan of this film will enjoy it immensly in this format and will probably not even notice or care about what some of the negative reviewers have chosen to focus (no pun intended) on.

Almost all Universal Blu-rays have that screen save that showers up after a few minutes of inactivity. I don't know why you can't press play to get out it and instead you have to push one of the arrow buttons.

At first I was also put off by the fact that you can't hit "play" in order to continue the movie. Very quickly I realized that you can hit the "select"/"OK" button (whichever button your remote uses to choose different options in the menus) and it returns right to the film.

Rating transfer quality isn't best performed on one of Panasonic's LCDs. They're nowhere near the picture quality of the gold-standard plasmas but I'm glad you qualified your review by including the type of screen you viewed on...thanks!
