The Corpse Bride (Blu-ray)

Reviewed by Peter M. Bracke

Quote:
"'The Corpse Bride' looks smashing, with a wonderfully detailed, three-dimensional picture that never fails to impress.... Detail and depth are also master class. A noticeable improvement over the standard-def release, the finest details of the animation are clearly visible, from the fine etchings on picture frames to the flowing, intricate stitching of the Corpse Bride's bridal gown. I was also impressed by how three-dimensional the image appears. I don't recall a single shot ever looking anything less that eye-popping.... Finally, compression artifacts are also not an issue."

My personal fave clip off the HD DVD demo disc. Because of the 3D effect.
Should look spectacular.
Will both HD disc releases have the same features & soundtracks?
Movies are: "The Greatest Artform".
HD should be for EVERYONE!

That demo off the HD DVD was some of the nicest looking HDef that I had ever seen, this film was made for HDef. Got this one on order too.

I literally meant what I said when I said "Sounds great"... meaning, I'm glad it turned out well. I fully expected this title to sound and look great in HD. I'm also glad that it has now been officially announced for HD-DVD as I can't afford the Blu-ray players.

Now lets all hope The Nightmare Before Christmas also gets a similar hi-def treatment. Woohoo!
