    I actually disliked the quality on this. On first glance the video is ok and audio does lack for sure, but when compared to the DVD upscaled there really isn’t a major difference.

    Plus less extras make this a loser. I really don’t see much added detail. The level of detail is subpar when compared to many other blu-ray releases.

    Hey Dave, yeah extras are total waste here. I do disagree on Video on this one. It’s cleaner and has much better texture. There’s also a bit of better blacks here. Not perfect, by any means but I did a side by side and it’s pretty huge. Now, #5 was nothing like 4 in the improvement. Giving the video a 4 might have been a bit generous but I’m grateful they kept the atmosphere and didn’t DNR scrub it to death.
    Thanks for the comments. It’s obvious you know what you’re talking about.
