It looks great.  I just finished watching it and this is a movie that really enjoys the high resolution of HD.  The desert scenery looks marvelous.  I found colors and skin tones to look normal and the picture was sharp and detailed.  The wife had already retired so I didn't  crank up the sound, but it sounded great too. I don't know whether I was just paying more attention this time, but I had never really noticed the time of day in this film before, or rather the lighting resulting from the time of day.  There was a scene later in the day the Chang's market and you could tell it was getting on in the afternoon. I did notice a technical flub.  Towards the end when Val takes off  yelling "I've got a plan!"  See if you notice it. If you liked this movie before, you will like it on this blu-ray.  I haven't checked out the extras, but they look to be a port over of the DVD extras.

I'm very glad to hear this.  The HD-DVD was pretty bad and Universal's track record isn't very good when it comes to catalogue titles on Blu-ray.  Thanks for the recommendation.

Amazon and BB both have it it for $15.  I bet that's a release week price only and it may go up to $20 after that.

The HD DVD had a lot of EE.  It was pretty easy to see.  Any sign of it on the BD?

It's the same plastic transfer as on the HD-DVD.

It looked fine to me.

'Fine' certainly isn't the four lettered word I would use to describe it.

Gack!!! So much for getting a decent HD video presentation of Tremors. This is probably the last chance we had for the foreseeable future. Thanks for nothing Universal.

Careful man, there's a beverage here!

Doug, you avatar has reminded me that as much as I want The Big Lebowski on BD, I also fear what Universal will do to it.

The Big Lebowski HD-DVD has a number of problems. It too is a noisy, processed transfer and it REALLY needs to be revisited and corrected. Given Universal's track record however, I have no doubt that they'll just regurgitate the existing HD video directly to the Blu-ray release. The Dude minds. This aggression will not stand, man.

Can you go into a bit more detail on what issues you have with it?

Would you cite a specific scene?  I'd like to re-watch with an eagle eye for the problem.
