Overall, this release is a mixed bag for me. I like the digibook which is something I have always liked about blu rays and helps me to decide to double dip but I don't like the redundant standard dvd which makes the package unnecessarily bulky and is a waste as since I've upgraded to a Blu ray player, why the heck would I want a dvd? The picture quality is a vast improvement over my previous standard dvd version but the sound quality is extremely noisy with tons of hiss which does distract a lot. The BD-Live is useless because it really is just a vehicle for the studios to show you trailers of other films and this feature clearly has a lot of potential yet to be exploited. The silent version of the film is a nice bonus. Too bad the DTS 2 Channel Mono MA is so hissy during the spoken scenes and is certainly an area to be addressed before the inevitable next release.
Still, on the strength of the vastly improved picture quality and the silent film bonus, this is probably the best version of the film that is currently out there. Don't expect much from the spoken dialogue parts though.
You can glimpse, if you try hard enough, what got under the skin of a corporal with Iron Cross, first class, recovering from a gassing when the armistice and Spartacist rising happened, who helped ban the film in then-contemporary Germany, taking it so personally that Remarque (the author) was on a very short enemies list. Myself, I am wondering if a fox hunting man named Sassoon read the book or saw the film.
