Well, the UK edition of the Blu-ray landed on my doormat with a thud this morning and I've spent a decent part of the day acquainting (acquinting?) myself with an old friend. The transfer is, as promised, stellar. I cannot fault it at all. As with many HD transfers I've seen, I've spotted things I'd never seen before like the cracker Quint is munching at the town meeting is definitely a Jacobs' Cream Cracker (although I have no idea if they're available in the US). The audio is a huge improvement on the 5.1 mix for the DVD, my wish for a proper KAPOW!! fulfilled and if I'm really feeling purist the original mono provided as well. I am a happy clam.
