4.5 The epitome of reference quality! MarkAvery | 11/12/2012 | See all MarkAvery's reviews (114) This is another movie where a review of the film is not really needed.Bold, brave, influential, groundbreaking, historic..............take your pick, they all apply. Kubrick is considered a genius and you need only see this to realise that!A must see and a must own!The transfer...................Warner Brothers have granted this movie with a VC-1 encoded, 2.20:1 framed, 1080p transfer onto a 50GB Blu-ray disc of reference quality. Yesssss!Shot in glorious 70mm which results in a staggering HD presentation which could of been filmed yesterday if it weren't for the effects and fashions.This was screened in large multiplexes when initially released in the sixties and it would appear that Kubrick wanted a clean and crisp image, hence the 70mm film stock. This means we had four times the resolution when it was filmed and now have this glorious Blu-ray to enjoy over and over again.Film grain is practically non existent, again this is due to the 70mm stock, colour is absolutely amazing. The early dawn of man scenes are staggering. The contrast and saturation is faultless.No edge enhancement, banding, crush or digital artifacting. We also do not suffer any compression issues.I cannot praise this disc highly enough. The importance of the movie and the quality of the image make this probably the most important disc you will ever buy. Thank You very much Warner Brothers.Is saying its out of this world too corny?Movie 5/5 Transfer 5/5THIS DISC IS REFERENCE QUALITYGive me a call I'll buy it for you!Exceptional.
