well, what can i say? woo hoo, yeah, great! i now have Batman & Robin on high definition, 1080p quality Blu-Ray. this, i am guessing, is something that not a great many people in the world can claim, unless they got it as some sort of misguided gift.
i thought i would have a bash at writing a decent review of it. this may help you decide if you wish to purchase the disc yourself or not. i will try to be as fair and balanced as possible.
The Good Points
it comes in a pristine, shiny new blu-ray box. this is most handy, as my 3:10 To Yuma disc is presently housed in a box damaged by a price sticker. i shall be switching boxes.
it arrived in some bubble wrap, which provided some entertainment.
an anonymous friend, for i see no reason to mention Jonathan Granville by name here, would no doubt request that i point out that it features Uma Thurman in skin tight clothes in it. in high definition.
the artwork is impressive, and makes it looks like it's a decent film. well, it's better than the artwork on the DVD, which basically screams "sh!t film within".
yes, that is the bubble wrap included in the picture.
the artwork on the blu-ray disc is also much better than the "let us just shove the name on" approach taken with the DVD.
The Bad Points
the disc contains the film Batman & Robin
as it turns out, 1080p "true HD" high definition does not enhance the content of the film
an "extra" is a deleted scene called something like "Alfred's Love Scene". cheers.
it features a music video from The Smashing Pumpkins, a band who are pretty much the musical equivalent of Batman & Robin.
it features music videos that appear to be a good deal worse than The Smashing Pumpkins. hard to believe, but off you go, pick the bones out of that one.
well, there you go. if this has in some small way helped you decide not to purchase Batman & Robin on Blu-Ray, DVD, Beta, VHS or any format, i am delighted to have helped. if you go ahead and buy it anyway, good luck with that. i say sorry to my Blu-Ray player before i put the disc in, i suggest you do to.
be excellent to each other!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
