5.0 out of 5 stars Finally!, May 28, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Red House [Blu-ray / DVD Combo Pack] (Blu-ray)
Many of the reviews I read about this April, 2012 Blu-Ray/DVD combo release were positive regarding the restoration; however, at least one review was negative.
I've been an Amazon purchaser for 10+ years and have bought every DVD of this movie hoping to get a decent copy. Until now, my best copy was from Critic's Choice - their DVD copy is far from perfect. Since I have yet to purchase a Blu-Ray player, I've only experienced the DVD disk from this set. I'm amazed at how clear the film is from start to finish - this is the video set to own! The only negatives are that the sound, although improved, could be a tad cleaner (perhaps I need a better sound system) and there are slightly faded right and left boarders of some of the frames that were shot in darkness (night scenes): to me these are minor issues. I now can relax and enjoy this movie as I've always wanted to. I sincerely appreciate HD Cinema Classics and those who restored this film for their wonderful work.

get a blu ray player now! the difference is huge. they are only eighty bucks now. you are missing out on many restored movies on blu ray. dvd is being phased out generally. so don't expect new titles with dvds in a few years , very few titles will be on them. no new titles for sure.

Personally I have found Blue Ray very over rated and friends are divided on this issue, I personally did upgrade but consider it a mistake.

This would possibly be the most stupid statement I have ever read. Bu ray plays dvds as well and enhances the picture plus blu ray is 5 times clearer because it has 5 times more detail. You will not see much of a improvement unless you have an HDMI lead and a full HD tv. Its like saying 18 years ago dvd is overated over VHS

Stephen of course you are entitled to your opinion but I do not find blu ray worthwhile and this is also applicable to about half of my friends. Divided, who cares really but I have since sold my blu ray and reverted back to dvd which I and my family are happy with. I do have an HDMI lead and tv and this connects to my Denon standard dvd player and I prefer the results.
