The only problem with all of this is that all of the extras are in PAL format and not compatible with U.S. players. The version I bought of the movie was described as "Region Free." That's kind of true, as the feature film is presented in 1080p 24fps and playable anywhere. The special features are not, however, and I had to use computer software to be able to watch them. When I try to launch a special feature from my PS3, nothing happens.
So, with the bad news out of the way, I can say that I love this transfer. First, it's genuine 1080 HD, certainly not upscaled (some YouTube uploads had me worried). Second, it's unabashedly filthy. Just the way I remember movie prints as a kid. We're not talking Tarantino Grindhouse, here, it just feels like you snuck into the last theater left playing the movie. It's refreshingly organic and fitting for an 80s cartoon. Thanks to blu-ray, digital artifacts are minimal (nice to see after the digital mess on the U.S. DVD). Even the many "strobe light" sections fare pretty well.Read more ›
Firstly, this dvd is released by Sony BMG Music Entertainment, as therefore those who might be expecting a dvd release of the animated film together with the live action film later in 2007 will be sorely disappointed as the property doesn't belong to the same distributor.
Secondly, this dvd release is a 2 disc release featuring three versions of the feature film, commentary tracks and interviews, a sneak peak at the live-action movie.
A breakdown of the dvd details are as follows :
*Brilliantly remastered and color-corrected
*16x9 widescreen presentation, which has not been seen anywhere since the movie was in theatres twenty years ago
*Full screen edition as well
*Interviews with director Nelson Shin, story consultant Flint Dille and voice actress Susan Blu
*Autobot Matrix of Knowledge Presentation: Truly showcasing the pop culture phenomenon that is The Transformers, Sony BMG has created a special version of the film for the DVD release.
*The `Autobot Matrix of Knowledge' will feature trivia and fun facts about the movie itself, the Transformers brand, and the pop culture references in which Transformers has been spoofed/tributed. Approximately one hundred fun facts will show up on screen throughout the movie.Read more ›
