You got the Blu-Ray, crooked?

I bet the sound wasn't sorted on the rifle going out the window. That is hilarious!

Yeah, if you leave the sound on the default 2 channel I noticed dozens of artifacts with the sound as I watch films with headphones. Volume levels, synch, redub, dubbing and loads more to catch the ear. Just adds to the film and I wouldn't want them doing a George Lucas® on it and killing what was already there. Plus of course they'd probably actually have to pay the actors to pop back to the studio for a bit of ADR.

When I watch films I do tend to actually watch them so sound is nowhere near as important and with a film like W&I it's really quite unimportant. Just give us the grain, beautifully playful English language, performances, direction, scenary, humour and everything else we expect.

Disc reviews:

Quite some difference in those DVDBeaver grabs. I noticed much richer -and new- colours myself.

A not inconsiderable bargain!

Thats a good price, I'm tempted, but I don't want it if it's 'too' bright. Does that make sense? I like it a bit grainy and dark, it suits the film. Can anyone who has seen the bluray tell me what it's like please?

The Bluray looks wonderful. Very filmic. The biggest improvement for me is the colours. I see nuances I'd not noticed previously and of course it is from a high definition source so if you have the appropriate television or projector things must simply look better.

As one would expect Amazon have dropped their price by 1p to be the most economical at £6.98 http://www.amazon.co.uk/Withnail-Blu-ra ... B001RNXZ0G
