Default 'Life Is Beautiful' - High-Def Digest Review

Aaron has just reviewed 'Life Is Beautiful.' He says this is a tremendous film. This Blu-ray features solid video and audio, along with a small batch of extras. This is recommended for everyone.

Spot on with the review....I've had the Alliance release that came out over a year ago (previously reviewed on Blu-ray.com), and this appears to have the same A/V transfer and supplements. Much more enjoyable than the old non-anamorphic dvd

I think you answered my question - I also have the Alliance release, and was pretty disappointed in the Video quality, especially at the beginning. I felt that it was little better than my previous DVD release. If the Lionsgate release used a new transfer, I would pick it up on the spot. But, it sounds like you are saying its the same transfer, so I think I will pass on this release.

Aaron, have you seen the Alliance release? Do you know if its the same transfer?

Nice write-up Aaron. I agree that a majority of films have no sign of this type of character which makes this movie a refreshing change. Time for me to see it again.. At the price Amazon has this for, It's going in my wife's gift pile for sure.

I got this Blu a long time ago, and I must say; It's a Must!

Thanks guys. And to answer the question, no. I haven't seen the Alliance release, so I can't really comment on it.

Thanks, Aaron. Picked this up as a Blind Buy at BB on Black Friday for $3.99. Glad it's recommended.

Oh well, its a must-have movie at least. I probably won't buy the Lionsgate for myself as I have the Alliance release, but I picked up a copy of the Lionsgate for my mom. Even after shipping and gift-wrapping, it was under $10, so I couldn't beat that.
