Default 'All the President's Men' - High-Def Digest Review

David Krauss has just reviewed 'All the President's Men.' He says the film is still a taut detective story that celebrates the world of top-notch journalism. Great filmmaking. This Blu-ray features four star video and audio, along with a healthy batch of extras. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

terrific review Dave. my father and I love this film (he graduated HS in 75 and it's one of the few films he actually REMEMBERS seeing in theaters, unlike The Godfather...), and i actually have a DVD copy of it from the library right now because i couldn't wait for the Blu to drop in price.

we both love it, but he FULLY agrees with the assessment in that it's the best journalism film ever made, whereas i slightly prefer Michael Mann's The Insider.



awesome movie. great news about the transfer. hopefully AMZ will drop it to a generous $15 soon.

Yeah, I had to cancel my pre-order, because the price has not budged. I'll get it when hits $15 or less.

I love the 70's also.
not quite as much as the 40's, but I would definitely say it's probably my 2nd favorite decade for film.

David mentioned that there is a little black crush in the Deep Throat scenes. What about the driving (karman ghia?) around D.C. at night scenes? I'm going to get this, as it is my second favorite film, after Amadeus, but I was just wondering.

holy crap I'm excited, I had no idea this was out on Blu-Ray until I saw the review banner. Robert Redford commentary sounds like a great bonus.

Just watched this this morning. It's no highdef showcase, all muted browns, split diopter shots and murky night scenes. If it's one of your favourite films or you don't own the DVD, then I'd recommend the blu-ray. If you've got the SE DVD and are only lukewarm on the film, you might want to wait for a sale before upgrading.

Default 2 disc "All The President's Men"

Be sure to seek out the release of this title that includes the 2nd BD bonus disc. It contains the documentary "All The President's Men Revisited" and is well worth seeing. The movie disc also has a number of interesting extras. . and the movie itself is excellent and well presented on this blu-ray.
