How are those Ozu Blu rays? I have a deep love for Ozu and would love to upgrade my DVDs to Blu.

Points well spent. A nasty, vile film that's never looked better. Also love the artwork on that cover.

You not seen THE CONVERSATION?-Class.
Arguably Hackman's best.

I've seen The Conversation several times as I own it on DVD, but really want to see what it looks like in HD.

I prefer Gene Hackman's performance in The French Connection, but this really shows his range.

But snap up a copy quick, there's rumours about that Universal didn't properly license the clips and they also omitted the title card saying 'Moustapha Akkad presents' and so they might be doing a recall. Like I say, it's just a rumour, but I'm glad I already have myself a copy - just in case!

It does look extremely good apart from one scene which, due to the print damage and unusually heavy grain, looks almost like DVD quality. The soundtracks are disappointing - why no DTS-HD Master Audio or LPCM surround or stereo track?

I haven't seen Terror in the Aisles yet, but will do at some point this week.

Terror in the Aisles is well worth a watch.
I had the Palace UK Quad poster many years ago.


Raided HMV today again and picked up........

Well... to be honest I was a little disappointed at the level of scratches and flecks on the print, its a little heavy in places and distracting (I imagine the DVD transfers are much the same), but I was happy with the high definition and detail. It definitely looks HD. Its just a shame BFI couldn't have cleaned them up a little bit more, Eureka have released films of the same era with practically zero imperfections, but I guess it mostly comes down to the quality of the film stock available as opposed to the publisher/distributor. Its clear how much BFI revere Ozu and I'm sure they did the best they could.
