Picture quality 4.5/5.0
It looks great in places and weak in others. I think that was intentional.

Good when it needs to be.
This was a blind buy for me and I half expected to be trading it away, but it surprised me.
Some people will be put off because most of the cast is Indian; others might fear it's a musical.
Well, the cast is fantastic and there is only one song played and it's right at the end of the movie (a homage to Bollywood).
The story is quite simple, but it is done extremely well. I won't ruin the story for those of you that haven't seen it, but it is dramatic, emotional, and intelligent.
This movie won't be for everyone. Two scenes are quite disturbing, so be prepared.
It has plenty of humour to balance things out, and it definitely has a feel-good ending.
None of the actors were nominated for an Oscar, but that doesn't mean the acting was below par.
This film won eight Oscars despite not being nominated in the acting categories, and I think they were well deserved.
Danny Boyle has outdone himself.
