I feel it would be worth having a thread devoted to naming (and shaming) the worst Blu ray releases. It may be a futile gesture, but perhaps someone out there will notice and add to pressure to have the worst faults rectified. I thought of this last night when we had a few friends over to watch Region A's 'The Big Country' on my big-screen projector set-up. It's a wonderful movie and most aspects of the transfer were fine ... but I'm particularly sensitive to incorrect screen ratio and the stretched images really grated. The landscape looked ok (bigger than big) but the fat bodies and faces were really unecessary. So that's on top of my 'shame' list. Next, for reasons detailed here eloquently by Mr Harris, come 'My Fair Lady' and 'Vertigo'. And I have nothing but scorn for the clowns who released the Region B transfer to Blu-ray of the excellent biopic 'The Buddy Holly Story' , an example of where the Blu-ray is hugely inferior to the standard DVD, with poor image and faded colours. Fi nally, in this personal list, comes the classic television drama 'Brideshead Revisited', another case where the Blu-ray image is markedly inferior to the DVD, with Acord apparently being given film elements with almost all the colour bleached from the 16mm original.
