One of the biggest box office hits of all time delivers the ultimate encounter when powerful aliens launch an invasion against the human race. The spectacle begins when massive spaceships appear. Wonder turns to terror as the ships blast destructive beams of fire down on cities all over the planet. Now the world's only hope lies with determined survivors, uniting for one last strike against the invaders - before it's the end of mankind.

Really & it was a blu ray not a dvd ?

is this really in HD? did they rescan the actual film, sampling it at a higher resolution or is it just the digital copy that's been upscaled?

Every movie filmed for many decades is in far higher resolution than HD & most movies just need digital remastering for a digital media.

The movie has been rescanned in 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 encode and is extremely polished, however for me the absolute kicker with the Blu-Ray version is the sound. It has been remastered in DTS-HD Lossless Audio 5.1 Surround and the bass is so good it makes your feet tickle with the sound cranked up and the sub woofer beats down through the floor.

As previously said, the original film is in such a high res they have to drop it down to a resolution to go on ordinary DVD. The only thing that could really make a big difference is the resolution at which the special effects were rendered up. Even this can be overcome providing the original digital masters are still in existence and then it can then be rerendered.

The other film that does this in Blu Ray is Men in Black. A bit worse in picture quality in Blu Ray but outstanding audio in Dolby TrueHD 5.1 Surround.

Not all films have made a good transition to Blu Ray though. Time spent in colour balancing and sound enhancement make huge differences in the finished film.

Hope this helps.

Master & Commander is the best audio experience blu ray i have watched so far.

Yes, I got this on blu ray. It's one of my guilty pleasures. And you know what? It's amazingly crisp on blu ray and well worth the purchase even if you own it on dvd. Recommended. Does anyone else get quite moved when the mad guy sacrificies himself? Does anyone else enjoy the President's rousing speech? Does anyone else let out a geeky chuckle when Data makes his appearance? Blimey, I love this film.

Who or what is Data?

I am just Glad that this film is a true reflection on life!! if any Alien with relative "Super powers" arrived with the sole purpose of destroying life on Earth, I for one am glad that the Americans would deal with them and send them on their way!!!
#11
Americans are the best! Yee hah, woo hoo, etc.

Truly dreadful film, it'd be worse if I could see it any clearer. Maybe they could make low-def versions of rubbish films?
#12

#13

What's the extended version?!?!

EDIT: Hated this movie on first viewing but upon second viewing I suddenly 'got it' - it's a B movie with a AAA budget!
