1.0 out of 5 stars BLU-RAY REVIEW AWFUL TRANSFER NOT OLD DVD REVIEW Jan. 2 2010
Format:Blu-ray
Unfortunately , Amazon have placed over 400 reviews of the DVD version of this fantastic movie on the blu-ray edition release page , creating a totally false impression of what it really is.
The bargain bucket Canadian company Alliance have distributed this classic chiller and turned it into a disaster movie.
It is not even 1080P but has been transferred at 1080i (interactive) - why on earth is any company which wants to be considered serious and not a joke is doing this in this day and age is beyond me.
Worse is to come , they haven't even transferred the extras from the dvd edition - this is the first time I have seen a blu-ray that has not a single extra .
Even more staggering - it doesn't even have a MENU - the film just starts immediately like a stripped down pirated version devoid of any frills whatsoever.
The quality of the image is slightly better than the standard DVD ( as it obviously should be ) but not much - and that is hardly surprising considering they have used only 16 GB total space on the disc.
The actual video bitrate hovers around 15 mbps - about half what a new blu-ray release delivers or should deliver.
The audio fares better , a dts hd ma 5.1 english track along with dolby digital 5.1 in English & French but take away the size of the audio ( about 5 GB ) and you are left with a video transfer ( AVC 4.1 ) that uses only 10 GB when the capacity of a blu-ray release is about 46 GB total.( although the disc used in this release is only single sided at a paltry 25 Gb )
A barebones release and a total failure in my eyes - this great film deserves far better treatment than this and hopefully a more preofessional company will release it elsewhere in better conditions.
Very disappointing Alliance - a one star low budget cheap (not in price) release.
Don't be fooled by the gushing DVD reviews on this page - they have nothing to do with this release on blu-ray !!!

Alejandro Amenabar's "The Others" is a reminder that very good films need not be glitzy or gimmicky. Neither is an excess of special effects or action sequences required. Film is an exercise in storytelling and good films succeed in telling their story well no matter how small and quaint the film may appear to be.
Grace Stewart (Nicole Kidman) and her two children, Nicholas (James Bentley) and Anne (Alakina Mann), live in a manor off the British coast. Three strangers arrive one day in answer to a placed advertisement for domestic help. For some strange reason, the three strangers prove to be familiar with Grace's house. Mrs. Mills (Fionnula Flanagan), Lydia (Elaine Cassidy), and the gardener Mr. Tuttle (Eric Sykes) soon immerse themselves in the daily routine of the manor, but the mood of the house suddenly seems changed with them around. Is there something to the strangers or is Grace's imagination just getting the better of her?
"The Others" revels in its simplicity. This is a film reminiscent of an earlier era in terms of filmmaking craft but it does not at all feel like a time-displaced relic when viewed through the filter of modern sensibilities. A legitimately unsettling atmosphere is created under the deft direction of Amenabar and Kidman is granted a wonderful opportunity to put her acting talents on display. She takes full advantage of her chance to carry a film on her own and succeeds admirably. Kidman is the emotional and dramatic catalyst of the story and the film as a whole would have been far less effective had she faltered. Flanagan, Cassidy, and Sykes are also great as the sweet but creepy strangers. From the outset, we know that there is something amiss by their arrival on the scene but we cannot put our finger on it. A tip of the hat to Amenabar for keeping us in suspense until the very end. Good work all around.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Others June 20 2004
By Mac
Format:DVD
The Others is a classy ghost story that is one of the best I've seen in a long time if not ever.Nicole Kidman does a fantastic job as a paranoid mother of two children.I love the setting in this movie; the 50's and the nice old mansion.The acting is also done wonderfully.This movie impressed me also because It didn't rely on special effects to scare.The casting was done how it should be even though I don't know any of the cast besides Kidman.I enjoy the camera work also.The dialogue is also very good for a horror film.The characters are also memorable.Finally I loved the plot; it had so many twists and turns there towards the end.The ending is great and that is all I'll say.I would definetly recommend this flick to anyone in the mood for a really entertaining movie.
THE OTHERS begins with a close-up of a woman screaming. By the time this intense film ends, everyone watching it will be screaming and gasping. Nicole Kidman stars as Grace, a woman raising two children by herself in a creepy mansion. World War II is over, but Grace's husband never returned. Meanwhile, the two children, Anne and Nicholas, must constantly stay in the dark because they are deathly allergic to light. Then one day three people show up to take over for Grace's disappeared staff, and trouble starts to brew. The odd trio--an aging nanny, an elderly gardener, and a young mute girl--seems to have a slightly different agenda than Grace and the children do. But when Anne starts talking to strange, unseen people, the scares start building to an incredible climax.
"A tense and fascinating ghost story."
-- Brian Webster, APOLLO GUIDE

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Inteligent Horror Film
Another fantastic example of a new genre of smart, very well written and very well made horror movies. Had this come before Sixth Sense it would deserve a full 5 stars.

This movie has a good ending (the surprising twist), but certain things don't add up.
A couple of characters act as if they have a secret agenda, but it turns out differently. Read more
