The movie is great but the Blu ray DVD authoring is lazy
on January 7, 2014
The movie is a five star movie in my opinion. The actual content of the blu ray disk sparkles with amazing color and detail. The sound, as far as I am concerned is excellent with good lip synching. However the fact that every time the movie is stopped it starts over from the beginning is a real negative compared to the standard DVD which will remember where it was. Stop the movie to feed the kid -- it starts over. Stop it to answer the phone, again a restart. I think I must have seen the opening credits at least 10 times just to watch the movie through once! This is inexcusable since blu ray can be authored to remember location. Also the menu set up for the extras is bizzare -- a ribbon at the bottom of the screen that cannot be accessed until the opening sequence of the movie starts. If you have a big enough screen to benefit from the additional detail of blu ray you might want to consider buying this edition, however unless you watch your movies all the way through in one sitting with no interuptions be prepared for frustration.
