I finally saw this BD earlier today, more or less by accident. I put in my blockbuster queue many weeks ago and never bothered to move it to the top. Finally, it reached a high enough place that BB shipped it to me on Monday and I got it yesterday. Wow, I'm glad I did!
This may be the demonstration disc of demonstration discs. Ralph's award of a 100 for the incredible DTS-HD MA 7.1 soundtrack was spot on, I have never heard its like. Every aspect of the soundtrack, from its audible dialog to its earthshaking LFE could, literally, not have been better.
The video was almost as good as the audio, although in this day of the 1080p BD incredibly beautiful video is becoming so commonplace that even a picture as incredibly beautiful as this second installment of The Chronicles of Narnia makes less of an impression than it might.
If I saw the first Narnia movie, I remember nothing about it. Thus, contrary to my expectations, the current installment blew me away. It was exciting, well acted, and fast moving, despite its 150 minutes length. Add to that its truly incredible video and audio and it turned out to be great entertainment. Highly recommended.
