If you don't own this movie in high-def yet, this is the version you want. I've stated in other reviews what a big fan I am of the "plus book" iterations of movies and how the quality differs in the text. THIS MOVIE PLUS BOOK IS WORTH EVERY PENNY.
I appreciate how people review the actual movie and their personal take on it. I read them quite often, but I will forgo this and just say the transfer from my DVD copy a few years back to blu-ray is astounding. Don't get me wrong, this is NOT one of those "it looks like they filmed this last week" movies. It does look dated, so I can only imagine how crappy the source material was and the job that they undertook to clean it up to where it is now. The sound is only a slight improvement from the DVD material, here now in DTS HD Master, but what do you really expect from a 40 year old movie? The reading material in front of the disc is what makes these "plus book" editions worth buying, and this one does not disappoint for bits of trivia, an essay on the movie itself, and then the standard micro-biographies of the major players. This a worthwhile purchase for anyone that doesn't own the movie yet, and worth a second look if you're a fan looking to upgrade your edition for collector purposes.
