What a film! Definitely worth it at that price!

I don't know what blu-ray.com the OP was reading, but
Edge enhancement remains the biggest issue, lending the crisp details that do grace the image a roughhewn, hyper-digitized appearance. Bearable at times, downright ugly at others, it also outlines actors, buildings and, essentially, any prominent object with thick halos, the vast majority of which will even distract filmfans with smaller displays. At its worst, Bacon and his cohorts look as if they've been digitally inserted into the frame. More distressingly, textures aren't nearly as revealing as they might initially seem. Look closely and you'll see just how many scenes have been subjected to noise reduction. Pores have been largely wiped away, stubble isn't as distinct as it should be, smearing is prevalent (particularly in midrange closeups), and the film's uneven grain surges and relents in tandem.

Doesn't make it sound great.

That doesn't sound good. Studios need to stop using EE and DNR. Just scan the original source film and transfer.
#4
Sounds like the same transfer as used for the HD-DVD (which I have) and it's truly dire. Very "HiDef" but could almost be animation.
#5
Great film, manky transfer

Stand back - expert present!

I must have seen this film 10 times! Great. Heat for the film and price, not for the quality of transfer!
#8
absolutely shocking film!!
#9
Great film but it has the worst HD transfer I've ever seen.

Still, way better than the DVD though.
#10
3 out of 5 for video transfer. Not too bad.

you've not seen the Escape From New York transfer then. US one is excellent, EU print is abysmal.

This is a truly awful film that has become something of a classic. Its been on TV more often than Amy Winehouse has been to rehab but I still cant seem to resist watching it.

Blu-ray.com do great reviews and their scoring is always accurate and 3/5 means it's poor. You can't really go less than 3/5 for HD material from what I've seen so far of Blu-rays and HDDVDs.

The image has very severe artefacts and some weird scanning/motion problem too. It may not be as bad to everyone but it really caught my eye.

It's still a fun film.

I just re-watched this - brilliant film :)

They've given it 2.5, not 3, and you obviously didn't read the review:

Tremors' 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer hails from 2007, when standards were a tad lower, expectations were still forming, and videophiles were a bit more generous. Even then, its HD DVD debut drew criticism and average scores (unsightly edge enhancement and glaring edge halos were the eyesores fueling the storm). Three years later, Universal has decided to simply port that same cancerous transfer to Blu-ray -- the studio's modus operandi when it comes to delivering long-awaited catalog titles first released on HD DVD during the Great Format War -- and the results are more disappointing than ever. Edge enhancement remains the biggest issue, lending the crisp details that do grace the image a roughhewn, hyper-digitized appearance. Bearable at times, downright ugly at others, it also outlines actors, buildings and, essentially, any prominent object with thick halos, the vast majority of which will even distract filmfans with smaller displays. At its worst, Bacon and his cohorts look as if they've been digitally inserted into the frame. More distressingly, textures aren't nearly as revealing as they might initially seem. Look closely and you'll see just how many scenes have been subjected to noise reduction. Pores have been largely wiped away, stubble isn't as distinct as it should be, smearing is prevalent (particularly in midrange closeups), and the film's uneven grain surges and relents in tandem. Did I mention the obvious bouts of telecine wobble, the minor print specks and scratches that pop up, the oversaturated primaries that creep into several shots... sigh. I'm beginning to wonder if a 2.5 might be too kind. Tremors is in desperate need of a proper overhaul.

It isn't a complete loss, I suppose. Colors are strong, blacks are deep, artifacting and other compression anomalies are kept to a bare minimum, and almost every aspect of the presentation bests its DVD counterpart (yes, even fine detail). But it's a far cry from catalog perfection and a poor excuse for a Blu-ray release in 2010. Don't be fooled by its over-sharpened wares; both Tremors and its fanbase deserve much more than this mediocre transfer offers.
