    This is Spinal Tap

    Release Date: July 28, 2009
    Studio: MGM Home Entertainment
    Packaging/Materials: Two-disc Viva Eco-box Blu-ray case
    Year: 1984
    Rating: R
    Running Time: 1h13m
    MSRP: $34.99

      MAIN FEATURE SPECIAL FEATURES
    Video 1080p high definition 16x9 1.85:1 480i or 480p standard definition
    Audio DTS-HD Master Audio: English 5.1, Dolby Digital: English 2.1 Stereo

    A classic "mockumentary" film gets all-around decent treatment, though more behind-the-scenes in the supplemental items would have been appreciated.

    I just ordered this, but I'm hanging on to my Criterion laserdisc.

    Thanks for the review. I have the first DVD release (not the Criterion) and I still wonder if this edition is that much of an improvement to be worth the double-dip.
