Thanks for the review. I don't know how much Duke I need in HD, however glad to know about the PQ on this release.
Thanks for the review, Neil. I watched RIO BRAVO tonight on Blu-ray, and while the picture didn't match the astonishing clarity of THE SEARCHERS (which was, after all, filmed in Vistavision), I still thought this looked amazingly dimensional and the deep saturation of color was so lush, it was hard not to just "fall into the movie." A real winner in every way.
Neil, thanks for another great review. As I posted in the review of The Cowboys review, I watched 'Rio Bravo' and 'The Cowboys' last friday night. It was a delightful night with two great releases of great films. These releases are about as good as these movies are ever going to look, and luckily, that is quite good.
Thanks, Thomas, I appreciate that. I watched these two films back to back and just loved every minute of them both. John Wayne really was a delight in both films but in slightly different ways. I can see me popping these back in the player some Sunday afternoon and relaxing with the Duke again sometime soon.
As I already posted in the "Rio Bravo/Cowboys" thread, I have seen it in the cinema more than 45 years ago, and I think the colour (especially the night- and indoor scenes) look exactly as I remember. OK, 45 years is a lot, but nevertheless. Some brownish/yellow colouring of very bright scenes (the sunny ones), especially noticed in the colour of faces made me wonder indeed, but honestly, after looking again, I think it's like I remember (or very closely so). The film looks wonderful on this HD DVD release. I'm assuming that the BD version (where they're having the same discussion) has gotten the same video files and therefore is as faithful to the original as this one. Cees
This is a film that I can put in just about anytime and it puts a smile on my face. It's like comfort food. Doug
