Alliance Atlantis keeps on impressing!!
on October 15, 2008
****UPDATE**** This review was for the Nightmare on Elm Street blu-ray that was released back on September 2nd, 2008. Since then a new release of the movie has come out on blu ray (released on April 13th, 2010) that includes special features (audio commentaries, multiple featurettes, etc) and 7.1 DTS-HD Master Audio surround sound.
A Nightmare on Elm Street hits blu-ray in terrific form.
The video quality is fantastic. The image is completely cleaned up. No scratches, no dirt, etc. No noticeable edge enhancement to the image as well. The daytime scenes look great; a nice amount of depth and detail in them and the image really pops out at you at times which is a really nice surprise. There were night-time and dream sequence parts which looked a bit on the softer side, but still doesn't look that bad at all, especially when you consider that the film is almost 25 years old. 4 outta 5
Two audio tracks: English Dolby 5.1 and English Dolby TrueHD 5.1. Just like the video, the audio never ceases to amaze me. Surround sound use is fantastic. Bass is good. Dialogue is crisp and clear. I didn't really find anything wrong with this track. 4.5 outta 5
Only downfall to this package is no special features. No commentaries, no featurettes, not even a trailer.
For what it's worth though, this blu-ray release is well worth the money. A terrific high definition transfer. Keep it up Alliance!!!
