Greetings,

I have started to denote the audio/video ratings as well as indicating placement of reviewed disc's on my recommended Blu-ray list. This will enable those looking at the database to see what the techical rating was as well as whether the disc is on my list. I will do it with all future reviews and will begin updating those already there as time permits.

Hopefully this will help those who are looking trying to pick put the disc's with the better A/V ratings to see them at a glance.


Cheers,

Ralph C. Potts

I'd be more concerned in the quality of the master, being from a film print, and that the movie may have been mastered awhile ago using monitors of insufficient resolve for a 1080x1920 format.

Hello all and Ralph, great job on your review. I now only buy movies based on your reviews, thanks a bunch for the good work.

That being said, I would love it if you would be able to review, The Ultimate Matrix Collection and the Pirates of the Caribbean Trilogy.
Thank you

Ralph,

Do you have The Graduate on your list of BDs to review?

Seggers

Mits 73835, Denon X4000, Emotiva UPA5 (triggered), Wharfedale Pacific Evo 40s, CS, 10s, the internet, a NAS drive, a TiVo Series 3 and an Oppo 103 (bye bye PS3). There's also a Wii, but we don't talk about that...
