What it comes down to, for me, is does Yellow Submarine look bad on blu-ray? No, it doesn't.

I know some purists want to trot out the same old arguments, but I'm sorry, I'm not joining them on this one.

If there was anything wrong with the PQ to me, trust me, I'd point it out. I'm sure some boring old tw@t will go through it with a fine toothed comb, looking for auto clean-up errors, ala South Park: The Movie. Power to them if they find anything, but not once did anything,(suspect live-action scene aside, which lasts what? Less than a minute, if that?) scream 'DNR!' to me.

Anyone that's even considering holding onto that wretched DVD, for anything more than sentiment purposes, or for the odd extra that wasn't ported across, is mentally insane.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to examine Warner's US release of Blade.

They'd be lying out of their asses.

I have it and it looks terrific! Both in detai, shadings, and color gradations. lAnd the audio...I've heard things on the 5.1 track that I've never heard or noticed before...and NOT just effects! The songs themselves reveal aspects that I never heard even on the vinyl records! The audio is very clean, clear, open, with strong dynamic range. A much superior 5.1 mix than we've heard previously.

Oh, I'm sure I could spend hours poring over every frame trying to find something wrong...but folks, this is the best this film has ever looked or sounded. Even the framing seems more accurate (fewer lopped off heads than I had seen on the 1999 laserdisc). And having a few cells included with the package is a nice bonus too. Honestly, I really can't imagine too many complaints about this one. The people who watched it with me thought it was stunning as well. (Even provided incentive for one person to shop for a BD player for himself over this weekend.) .I personally think all involved did a terrific job with this release. Now THE STING....that's a different story. The HD-DVD is better.

Here's a link to a review that I pretty much agree with:
