"Revenge" (Blu-ray)

Synopsis

Michael "Jay" Cochran has just left the Navy after 12 years. He's not quite sure what he's going to do, except that he knows he wants a holiday. He decides to visit Tiburon Mendez, a powerful but shady Mexican businessman whom he once flew to Alaska for a hunting trip. Arriving at the Mendez mansion in Mexico, he is immediately surprised by the beauty and youth of Mendez' wife Miryea. Their attraction to each other is undeniable, but Cochran is aware that Mendez is a powerful, vindictive, and very possessive man who does not tolerate betrayal.

Commentary

I was almost shocked to realize that I had never seen this film before. I am a fan of Costner's library and an even bigger fan of Tony Scott, so how this slipped by the radar I will never know.

Revenge is a great thriller that is a bit harder in the violence and sexual content than most thrillers dare to be nowadays. What ever happened to the hard "R" rating anyways? The styling of this film is very reminiscent of Scott's Top Gun in photography but reminded me more of True Romance in its grit. A very solid thriller.

Technical

Sony continues to impress here, with a shockingly good transfer. The image is razor sharp throughout most of the film, and the colors are incredible. Tony Scott always has a bit of a stylized look with his films and loves the use of filters, and this film is no exception. The photography is outstanding, and the attention to fine detail is even better. Some of the darker scenes lose a bit of focus now and then, but otherwise this is one of the best looking discs I've seen in awhile.

The uncompressed PCM soundtrack opens up with a boom as the roar of the F-14 (made so famous in Scott's previous film) fills all the channels, especially the subs. This is a rich soundtrack with plenty of atmosphere and great balance. I was a bit disappointed in the rather lame soundtrack at times, but that was a problem with a lot of films from this time period and throughout the eighties.

Extras

Extras include a feature commentary, production feature and some trailers.

"The Hitcher" (HD DVD Hybrid)

Synopsis

A road trip takes a deadly turn in this terrifying thriller about a young couple tormented by a psychotic hitchhiker who forces them to face their fears head-on. The open road becomes a battleground of blood and metal in the race to reveal the chilling truth about this relentless killer.

Commentary

I grew up with the original film starring C. Thomas Howell and Rutger Hauer and loved it. A genuinely creepy film that is still a fun ride. This new remake actually does the original justice and is far better than I was expecting going into it. Sean Bean does a great job as the creepy hitchiker (though Rutger still gives the best performance in my book), and the pace and tone of the film are great for a modern day horror/thriller.

My only real complaint is the last three minutes of the film, which were a huge disappointment for me. The pacing, lines, and climax just felt REALLY wrong. Overall though, I enjoyed this one and would recommend it for some jumps and good chills.

Technical

Since this is black and white, I was worried that we may see some banding. Thankfully, I only saw it once, and it was far from distracting. The depth and detail of this image are outstanding and will put a lot of digital displays to the test. If you aren't seeing a lot of dimensionality and depth, your display is probably lacking in contrast.

My only real complaint with the image is some occasional line twitter that happens with some of the fine detail, almost as if the source material couldn't hold the detail intended, or it was rendered that way. I saw this a few times. Otherwise this is a visual treat that is so good sometimes, it is distracting.

The Dolby Digital Plus soundtrack is a lot of fun and very dynamic. The atmosphere lends perfectly to the onscreen action, and the low end has plenty of punch. The entire soundtrack is very balanced with nothing ever taking away from anything else, and dialogue always sounds dead on.

Extras

Universal has included the full "U-Control" treatment for this title, and you can access interviews and production snippets while you're playing the movie. There are also lots of deleted scenes, some production featurettes and trailers.

"Flags of Our Fathers" (Blu-ray/HD DVD)

Synopsis

In February, 1945, one of the fiercest battles of the Pacific theater of World War II occurs on the tiny island of Iwo Jima. Thousands of Marines attack the stronghold maintained by thousands of Japanese, and the slaughter on both sides is horrific. Early in the battle, an American flag is raised atop the high point, Mount Suribachi, and a photograph of the raising becomes an American cause celebrity.

As a powerful inspiration to war-sick Americans, the photo becomes a symbol of the Allied cause. The three surviving flag raisers, Rene Gagnon, John Bradley, and Ira Hayes, are whisked back to civilization to help raise funds for the war effort. But the accolades for heroism heaped upon the three men are at odds with their own personal realizations that thousands of real heroes lie dead on Iwo Jima, and that their own contributions to the fight are only symbolic and not deserving of the singling out they are experiencing. Each of the three must come to terms with the honors, exploitation, and grief that they face simply for being in a photograph.

Commentary

Clint Eastwood delivers yet another powerful film with this one. The story revolves around some of the men captured in the famous picture of the flag raising atop the mountain at Iwo Jima. After the events on the island, the three surviving members of the photograph are put on a campaign for the military to promote war bonds. But as the tour progresses, the men have to fight with personal demons and come to grips with the PR campaign that is full of lies.

This film takes an interesting look at the events of the battle, and the PR that was done afterwards. The production design is fantastic, and the star cast did a superb job. Highly recommended viewing.

Technical

This is a great looking HD presentation on both formats. If there were any real differences, I didn't see them. The image reminded me a lot of Saving Private Ryan with its use of filters and desaturated colors. Detail and contrast are excellent, and the print used is in pristine condition. I was blown away by the level of fine detail and depth in the image throughout the film.

Cinematography is a highlight, and the use of CGI never detracts from the imagery. I did see some slight banding and blocking from time to time, but not enough to take me out of the presentation.

Paramount had decided again to favor the HD DVD presentation with a 1.5Mbps DD+ soundtrack compared to the standard high bit rate DD track on the Blu-ray disc. Don't get me wrong, the Blu-ray disc still sounds VERY good, but I would give the HD DVD the edge in terms of atmosphere, detail, and clarity in extension. Both soundtracks are very dynamic with ample use of the LFE channel and the surrounds. The battle sequences rival anything I've heard in terms of sound design and provide some serious demo material for subwoofer fans. Dialogue sounds very natural, with great tonal balance and imaging across the main channels. I still wish Paramount would start looking into lossless audio support, but it is hard to complain about this presentation.

Extras

This two-disc set has lots of features in full HD, including an intro by the director, production features, and the trailer.

"Stomp the Yard" (Blu-ray)

Synopsis

After the death of his younger brother, a troubled 19-year-old street dancer from Los Angeles is able to bypass juvenile hall by enrolling in the historically black, Truth University in Atlanta, Georgia. But his efforts to get an education and woo the girl he likes are sidelined when he is courted by the top two campus fraternities, both of which want and need his fierce street-style dance moves to win the highly coveted national step show competition.

Commentary

There was no way I was going to be able to go into this movie, expecting to enjoy it. The trailers looked awful, and the premise seemed a bit played out. Thankfully, the movie wasn't half bad. Think of it as a mix of Bring It On and Drumline, leaning more to the Drumline side of things. The pacing is good, the dance sequences are fun, and overall the story never wanders off too much into stereotypes.

Technical

Another great looking transfer from Sony. This high bit rate AVC encode is very stylized and full of great color, detail, and depth. Most of the photography is outside on the beautiful Georgia campus with gorgeous buildings and landscaping that shows plenty of rich color and sharp fine detail. Blacks are consistently solid and deep, with little to no noise at all. I only noticed the slightest amount of blocking in one or two scenes throughout the film, but nothing I would call distracting. Depth of image is solid throughout, and I could easily see several sequences from this film being used for demo material.

Sony breaks away from the norm on this one and includes both an uncompressed PCM soundtrack and a Dolby TrueHD lossless soundtrack of the same language. Unfortunately at this time I don't have a Blu-ray player on hand that does decoding of TrueHD (I am using the Sony BDP-S1, which doesn't support any of the new audio codecs despite having the hardware necessary for TrueHD support). I will take a listen when the new Panasonic DMP-BD10A arrives next month. The uncompressed soundtrack grabs your attention right away though with rich dynamics and plenty of hard hitting bass. The soundstage is extremely open and the aggressive use of music throughout the film really could put a system to the test.

Dialogue is balanced nicely into the mix, and imaging all around is excellent. I still would prefer a full resolution (48/24) soundtrack to two separate soundtracks like this, but there is no denying how impressive this soundtrack is.

Extras

Extras include a look behind the story of the film, a feature commentary, some extended scenes and a deleted scene, a gag reel, and previews.

"Alpha Dog" (HD DVD Hybrid)

Synopsis

They grew up together in the suburbs of LA, living their own version of the American dream, with every day a blur of partying and looking for the next thrill. Johnny is the leader in their sordid world of drugs, greed, power, and privilege. But when he is double-crossed by another dealer, things quickly begin to spiral out of control, and an impulsive kidnapping leads to a shocking conclusion.

Commentary

Based on true events, Alpha Dog is a disturbing look at the life of some young drug dealers in Southern California and a turn of events that lead an innocent boy down a dark road. It is easy to dismiss this film as being a bit dumb, but that is mainly because the characters make such stupid mistakes. The acting is better than I expected, especially from some of the cast who are known for other things. The story is solid, but hard to associate with at times. Overall it reminded me a bit of Bully, another film with similar themes, but its production and story were a bit tighter.

Technical

I don't know what happened here, but I was not impressed at all with this video. There are LOTS of digital artifacts in this presentation, including severe banding, color distortion, and random other things I don't even think I've ever seen before! Backgrounds tend to have a lot of artifacts in them on walls and skylines. Banding can be excessive at times to the point that you wonder who mastered this and what they were looking at when they did it.

Image detail wavers quite a bit. There are times when the image can look very good with solid detail and color, but the very next scene can cut it down to size with blurry imaging and noise. One of the biggest disappointments I've seen from Universal yet.

Universal includes a rare Dolby TrueHD soundtrack with this one, a trend I would love to see them continue. This mix has some nice dynamic range, fueled mainly by the hip-hop soundtrack and low bass lines. Dialogue sounds great, and the imaging in the main soundstage is wide and deep. Surrounds pick up the action a bit and add a nice sense of atmosphere overall.

Extras

Another "U-Control" release for Universal. This time you get to see the profiles of the characters as the film progresses, which I found pretty cool.

"Letters from Iwo Jima" (Blu-ray/HD DVD Hybrid)

Synopsis

The island of Iwo Jima stands between the American military force and the home islands of Japan. Therefore, the Imperial Japanese Army is desperate to prevent it from falling into American hands and providing a launching point for an invasion of Japan.

General Tadamichi Kuribayashi is given command of the forces on the island and sets out to prepare for the imminent attack. General Kuribayashi, however, does not favor the rigid traditional approach recommended by his subordinates, and resentment and resistance fester among his staff.

In the lower echelons, a young soldier, Saigo, a poor baker in civilian life, strives with his friends to survive the harsh regime of the Japanese army itself, all the while knowing that a fierce battle looms. When the American invasion begins, both Kuribayashi and Saigo find strength, honor, courage, and horrors beyond imagination.

Commentary

This companion piece to Eastwood's other film, Flags of Our Fathers, tells the tale of Iwo Jima from the perspective of the Japanese soldiers preparing for the fight. You see their morale slowly deteriorate as the attack draws near. You also get a sense of their part in the war and reflections on their home life and views on the struggle.

I must say this was a refreshing look at a conflict since most war films paint the other side as tyrants or evil, when really most opponents are citizens recruited to fight for their country the same as we are. This isn't nearly as action oriented as the other film, but it's as good or better as a war time drama.

Technical

This release was handled by Warner rather than Paramount and there are some differences. Both the HD DVD and Blu-ray are encoded using VC-1 rather than different encodes for each format. The image is quite good overall but has a few issues. The look of the film is very de-saturated, even in comparison to the other film, with hardly any color at all. Contrast is exceptional through most of the film, but there are times that I felt the blacks could have been better. Banding is evident quite a few times but at low levels. Otherwise this is a nicely detailed and remarkably clean transfer.

The biggest improvement compared to the Paramount releases is the inclusion of a lossless Dolby TrueHD soundtrack for the HD DVD and an uncompressed PCM soundtrack for the Blu-ray release. This soundtrack isn't quite as aggressive as the companion film, but it definitely has its moments. The low end is outstanding in some of the sequences, and the sense of being in the environment is almost unsettling during some of the bombing runs. Dialogue is in its native Japanese, and tonal balance and imaging were dead on. A remarkable piece of sound design and presentation.

Extras

Extras include some production featurettes, coverage from the world premiere, the trailer, and various features about the events.

"Dirty Dancing" (Blu-ray)

Synopsis

Spending the summer in a holiday camp with her family, Frances 'Baby' falls in love with the camp's dancing teacher.

Commentary

Really, who hasn't seen this movie at least a couple of times already?? Easily one of the most remembered love stories of the last 20 years and still as entertaining today as it was then, Dirty Dancing makes for great feel-good entertainment and its premiere in HD.

Technical

This is a film that needs a GOOD restoration badly. The transfer looks like it was mastered from an average video source, processed with heavy noise filtering, and badly color timed. Most of the colors look overblown, and that hurts the detail and realistic nature of the image. I saw a lot of aliasing, making me think this was an upconvert or sourced poorly from an interlaced master. The filtering makes the image look hazy more often then not, which again hurts just about everything in the frame. Hopefully the next inevitable go around will look a whole lot better.

The audio presentation is a lot better than the video presentation and really the only reason someone should consider replacing their DVD if they have one. The uncompressed soundtrack does a great job of making the most out of the upbeat soundtrack, and the channels seem to be balanced well. The bottom end has been tweaked a bit and adds a bit more oomph than I remember with previous releases. The track still has a bit of a dated sound to it, especially in the voices, but its still quite entertaining.

Extras

Extras galore on this one. Tributes, interviews, production features, music videos, commentaries, photo galleries, you name it, it is included!

"The Fountain" (Blu-ray/HD DVD Hybrid)

Synopsis

Spanning over one thousand years, and three parallel stories, The Fountain is a story of love, death, spirituality, and the fragility of our existence in this world.

Commentary

I am a huge fan of Aronofsky, and I was eager to finally have the chance to see this film. I missed it during its theatrical run due to travel, and it was one of the films I wanted to see last year the most. The wait was well worth it. The film has parallel storylines that all deal with death in many ways and how we accept it and battle it. It is a rather sad story that is beautifully composed, and it is unfortunate that it didn't do better in its theatrical release.

Technical

Imagery is a focal point for this film and very important to the overall storyline. The HD presentation is identical for both releases and is very good overall. This is not flashy photography and it lacks the razor sharp look that we see from time to time with these new formats. But detail is impressive and some of the visuals are incredible to say the least. Contrast is quite good throughout, but colors are slightly muted. I did see some digital noise creep in on occasion, but not enough to distract much.

I was really hoping for a lossless or uncompressed soundtrack for this one. Is there really any excuse not to have these with new releases like this? Aside from that this is still a good soundtrack, but it is rather subdued for the genre. Atmosphere is lovely though, and the sound design is impressive when it needs to be. It is all about the little details and how they play into things. Both presentations seem to be the same, though I noticed a bit more air to the HD DVD mix for some reason.

Extras

Extras include a look at the film through various interviews and production features, a gallery of effects and production design, and the trailer.

"The Matrix Trilogy" (HD DVD)

Synopsis

In the near future, a computer hacker named Neo discovers that all life on Earth may be nothing more than an elaborate facade created by a malevolent cyber-intelligence, for the purpose of placating us while our life essence is "farmed" to fuel the Matrix's campaign of domination in the "real" world. He joins like-minded Rebel warriors Morpheus and Trinity in their struggle to overthrow the Matrix.

Commentary

One of the biggest releases yet for the HD formats, the trilogy that has become a landmark of cinema, finds its way to HD DVD. Any film fan has already seen these so I will spare you the details. It is great to see that Warner has seen fit to release these so early in the game for the format. It is a shame that they are not releasing the films individually though and I was even more disappointed to see that The Animatrix wasn't being released in HD despite being included in the Ultimate Edition set. I REALLY hope that one is re-visited later and presented in HD as it was a great release on its own and worth owning in full HD.

Technical

Finally we get to see these films in the way they were truly intended to be seen. Gone are the halos and subtle compression artifacts of the DVDs that always held the image back just that little bit. That isn't to say this image is perfect though, or even the best I've seen on HD to date. These encodes seem to be from the same masters as the uber Matrix boxset that hit DVD a little while ago. And like those transfers, a little bit of banding is noticed. It isn't overly intrusive, but it is definitely noticed when it is there. A good scene to demonstrate this is when Trinity and Morpheus visit the Oracle for the first time in the third film. Take a look at the wall behind the Oracle as she sits and smokes. Aside from the banding though these are a visual treat with tremendous contrast, depth, and detail.

Warner delivers all three films in Dolby TrueHD lossless audio, and to say these soundtracks are impressive would be an understatement. I've always enjoyed the sound design of these films, and each one has spectacular moments of presence, low end, and spatial effects. The bass is tighter than the DVDs were, and overall, channel balance seems a bit better. The sense of soundstage has opened up, creating a more realistic sense of being there than I got with the already impressive DVD releases. These releases will continue to be reference soundtracks for years to come.

Extras

All of the films include the full "In Movie Experience" treatment with lots of cool interviews and production looks. The rest of the package is similar to what we had before on DVD, including commentaries, production features, interviews, effects features, and more.

"Apocalypto" (Blu-ray)

Synopsis

Set in the Mayan civilization, when a man's idyllic presence is brutally disrupted by a violent invading force, he is taken on a perilous journey to a world ruled by fear and oppression where a harrowing end awaits him. Through a twist of fate and spurred by the power of his love for his wife and child, he will make a desperate break to return home and to ultimately save his way of life.

Commentary

I really wanted to see this one in theaters but didn't get the chance. I am a huge fan of Gibson's directorial work and this is no exception. Few filmmakers today are making movies as good as Mel. It is unfortunate that so many people are basing their opinions of his work on his personal life and not his cinematic vision.

This film is linear in nature and follows a young Mayan warrior through two days of hell as his village is raided by an invading tribe to capture people as slaves and sacrifices to their gods. I will leave it at that, as this is a movie that shouldn't be spoiled. The production design is incredible and the acting and pacing of the film are without flaw. Highly recommended.

Technical

This may be one of the best HD transfers I've seen yet on any format. The photography is gorgeous, and every drop of color and detail are preserved here. The image is not lacking anything except compression artifacts, which is exactly how a next generation presentation should be. The level of detail in even longer shots is incredible, and color rendition is fabulous. A reference transfer that will be used for demos in my house for a long time to come.

Equally impressive is the outstanding uncompressed PCM soundtrack. The sound design is completely engulfing with unbelievable presence and spatial cues. Surrounds are used almost constantly to add to the atmosphere of the jungle and tension during the action scenes. Dynamic range is also impressive, with plenty of clean, tight bass and directional imaging. This whole presentation is one of the best A/V presentations I've experienced to date.

Extras

Extras include a feature commentary, production feature, and a deleted scene. The trailer is also included and pre-selected highlights from the film for demos.
