Unfortunately, Point-Blank, I fear that most reviewers of blu rays have either just finished or are anxious to jump back into the video games they've just been playing. This is probably very ungenerous of me, but there it is. I come from the film world and though I know that home video is a long way away from looking like projected film (in some cases it actually looks better!) I still think that standards should have been set for image and sound quality. Howards End was very well photographed, for blow up to 70mm, and this disc does not represent that.
