Dodge City Blu-Ray vs DVD

28 Aug

Better late than never for this review. I don’t know how many of you have purchased this Blu Ray yet so first off I can say that it is worth the money to get it even if you have the DVD already. A lot of grain and film dirt are gone as well as vertical film lines. Paying close attention the image is more stable too. I noticed this at the start with the Warner logo. They have fixed the alignment problems that were on the DVD version and that makes for a much clearer, sharper image. The colors look better and detail like clothing material you can see much better. There is a scene early on showing steers in the pen that looked like a 3D image without the 3D glasses on the DVD which has been fixed with the new Blu-Ray. The sound is about the same as Warner’s is not taking the mono and spreading it out to at least stereo or 5.1 to get the sub woofer going. This make me wish more of his films were shot in color because when it looks this good, it gives this 76 year old film a much more modern look. It would have been nice for them to have added a commentary track since I would not think it would cost that much money for a few guys to sit in front of a microphone and talk. They added a nice one to the box set version of Objective Burma but changed some of the extras so now you need both copies. Anyway thumbs up for this and I hope they keep them coming for Errol and us.
