5.0 out of 5 stars The Sound Of Music blu ray...my home theatre is alive with This Sound Of Music, Nov. 13 2010
This review is from: The Sound of Music: 45th Anniversary Edition [Blu-ray + DVD] (Blu-ray)
Video: This newly remastered high-definition treatment released on the blu-ray disc format in 1080p AVC/MPEG-4 is gorgeous. Scanned at 8K resolution from a copy of the original camera negative, the actual transfer was from a 4K duplicate, which preserved all the original detail in the original negative. The amount of detail found on screen is incredible and truly a revelation. Colours are vibrant and rich. Black is deep and inky. Fox has done a good job, leaving a beautiful layer of grain throughout (unlike those washout picture as the result of excessive DNR in Predator blu ray). (5/5)

Audio: The DTS-HD 7.1 MA is simply wonderful. Dialogue and singing are clean and clear. The film's music is beautiful and very well remastered. The clarity is very impressive. The new mix is incredible. A great level of care clearly went into the audio restoration. (5/5)

For a film dated 45 years, the resultant video and audio are simply first notch. This movie is one that one can watch with the whole family, again and again, while we could sing along at the same time. If you can afford the higher price, the limited edition box set is of much better value. This blu ray disc is highly recommended, and a Must-Own.
