Film Rating: /img/vbsmilies/htf/star.gif">PICTURE QUALITY: 4/5 /img/vbsmilies/htf/star.gif">SOUND QUALITY: 3/5 /img/vbsmilies/htf/star.gif"> This film is dialogue-driven and is centered mostly in the middle front. The music is well recorded as well are the sound effects without sounding overly aggressive and harsh. Surround usage is limited and was expected considering the nature of this film. This is a heartwarming drama with a warm and simple soundtrack. SPECIAL FEATURES: 1.5/5 Oh God…like the just recently released "Shorts", My Sister’s Keeper has a host of ads as soon as the disc is loaded in. If the studio is trying to make my home theater experience exactly like the movie theater experience with commercials and all, then they are certainly doing a good job. Eeek. The disc has three features: My Sister’s Keeper: From Picoult to Screen (HD, 13:34) and eight deleted scenes (SD, 16:22), and a digital copy on a separate disc. The featurette is speedy in presentation with interviews from Picoult, actors, and director. It talks about the author’s transition from novel to film as well as about the characters. It’s a nice addition and worth viewing once. The deleted scenes are always welcomed and show how important editing is for a film. While there are some worthy scenes here, most would slow the film. The audio is rough and 2ch mono.
IN THE END… My Sister’s Keeper is a great film to watch; it’s touching to the emotions as well as to reality as life can be complicated and heartbreaking. It’s well acted and brought to the screen portraying human emotions on an ethical level in our scientifically advancing world.
