Drama starring Will Smith. Set in early '80s San Francisco, the film charts the hard times and eventual comeback of Chris Gardner (Smith), a suddenly single salesman who has custody of his son, but finds that providing for the two of them is a challenge in the increasingly unstable economic climate. In the face of this difficult life, Chris has the desperate inspiration to try for a stockbroker internship where one in twenty has a chance of a lucrative full time career. Together, father and son struggle through homelessness, jail time, tax seizure and the overall punishing despair in a quest that would make Gardner a respected millionaire.

Cant see much point having this film on blu-ray imo. Nothing graphically amazing about it. and when u can get it for 4£ delivered on DVD its just seems like a waste.

Obviously its a good deal for a bluray film, but may as well get one with some impressive graphic display

Well these guys gave the HD quality 4.5 stars

bluray.highdefdigest.com/pur…tml

I rented it on Blu Ray and thought the quality was quite good.

The picture quality should be better than DVD on a HD-TV, not sure how good or bad the film is - any comments?

IMDB rating of 7.7 / 10

Im not doubting the fact it looks better. But ur not going to go wow look at the special effects on this film... Im jsut saying its not worth buying it on blu-ray imo, as u dont get anything amazing out of it. Unlike i duno, buying 300 or something wtih great effects like a war film etc..

Ahhhh, I didn't know you meant special effects. Still, that could be said for any non sci fi/action movie!

Hope they get this on blu ray asap

Ive still not seen a film in hd so i dnt have a clue what im missing or what im hyping up

On a hdtv most normal dvds look grainy. HD films look alot sharper and have better colours.

ummm well its gunna be released on hd - dvd and blu ray late 2008

I'd always choose a blu-ray over a DVD, on a decent sized tv you can notice the difference, regardless of any special effects. Faces and places are more defined and restored to how they should look originally. So yeah I buy even romantic comedys in blu-ray.

Well put it this way

If blu ray was £10 and a newly released dvd was £10 what would you buy
Regardless of having the system

If i did get a ps3 which i probably will id be buying all my future films on blu ray provided they were cheap

But that's not the situation, at best the blu ray is double the price of the DVD, triple most of the time when it's an older release.
I'll take three DVDs over one blu ray any day.

This is a great film. Won't test your sound system, but it has a really good storyline, that hits a lot of human feelings.

I hired it from BlockBuster, and the quality on BR is great as usual.

Voted hot.

It's a good film but very depressing. Best filed at the back under Chick Flick. :whistling:

This film is amazing

At the end of a day, a good film is a good film, whether it's in 1080P all singing all dancing dolby whatever or Black & White !. There are many movies that either need or are better in Hi-Def, but I find that after 10 mins or so I don't notice as I'm into the film.

But at the end of the day we're all different :whistling:

Despite having HD this and that myself, as gepw mentions, a good film absorbs me to the point that I dont care if its HD or not. Very few things I've watched in HD, really needed it to add to the experience to begin with.

After using my PC with its 22" widescreen monitor in a resolution of 1680 x 1050 it's pretty hard to then go and watch my HD TV and get blown away by it.
