Shame, such a good movie. But bluray looks to be defeinitely a step up from the bluray from viewing pics, think rental is approriate unless I can find it for less than $20 to replace the dvd I currently own. Does anyone think FOX will end up releasing a special\\collector edition with a better transfer?

Hmmmm....I don't see the problem with someone making a simple "didn't seem that bad to me" post...??? As long as it doesn't lead to ongoing, pointless drivel (pro and con parties both guilty) - a single statement of opinion should be allowed....

If not, then the title of this thread should be changed to "TLD Bashing ONLY Thread" - which would put it into circle-jerk mentality of "sucks", "yeah, sucks big-time", blah, blah, blah.....

As an owner/viewer of the BD TLD I come here periodically to see if anything intelligent has been posted.

Well, I had to see for myself what TLD looks like on Blu. The DVDs are so wretched that anything would surely be an improvement, and there are positives to the Blu-ray. Blacks are deep and there's a superficial crispness to the image that is far beyond any previous home video version.

But my God, the DNR has ruined what could've been the definitive treatment of a black-and-white movie in high-def. Out of the 300+ pieces of HD software that I've owned, this is the most OTT use of grain-reduction I've yet seen (that includes Golden Compass and Pan's). It's like watching a waxwork recreation.

I'll keep the disc, and I'll enjoy what I'm watching simply because it's The Longest Day, but I pray that Fox don't let this happen again.

Richard Burton is to some degree DNR resistent. To make him lose all facial detail requires strongly DNRED SD masters dumbed down to VHS.

Man, this was the worst DNRed movie I've seen to date. I was hoping that AVS members were exaggerating the issue, but it looked horrid on my 150" setup. However I can also see how someone viewing this on a small 40-60" screen in their living room might say otherwise.

How is that Henry Fonda is front and center in the cover? He had a very minor role in the movie and was on-screen for perhaps 10 minutes at the most.

It was also interesting to see Sean Connery cast as Pvt Flanagan, clearly before he became James Bond.

Dr. No came out the same year as The Longest Movie.... My dad took me to both. My little brother was born that year. Dad quit taking mom to the movies. She stayed home with the little screamer. My sister and I saw all the Bond films, all the war movies, all the westerns, and only very occasionally had any input into what film it would be....whatever daddy wanted to see. This gig lasted close to 5 years. I can't remember which one came out first.

1962 was a good year for movies, I thought....

In real life I am Dot Mongur champion of the International Pacman Federation. I don't play the game, I operate it.....no dot is safe from me....

Finally watched this. Maybe someone at Fox should have tried doing that before releasing it. Good grief. To my eye (on a 102"-diagonal screen), it's worse than Patton. Patton featured waxy faces. I would describe these more as rubbery, like Halloween masks.

Damn good movie, though.
