Default 'Van Wilder' - High-Def Digest review

Kenneth's review of 'National Lampoon's Van Wilder' is up. While he didn't care for the film itself, he says even die-hards are likely to have a tough time with this Blu-ray release. The video transfer is flat and dull, and the supplements (while plentiful) are exceedingly superficial and repetitive. The disc's one bright spot is a four-star 7.1 PCM audio mix, but still he says it doesn't add enough value to save this high-def train wreck.

Great, and I was planning on buying this movie, until I see it's only worthy of 2 stars for PQ... Thanks Ken, you saved me $24 and frustration I'll release on someone else...

Only 1 great title from Lionsgate on BD, The Desent! Hope they stay BD exclusive till they start releasing good content.

Wait a minute... Tara Reid won an Oscar? Four of them? Not according to her IMDB profile.

I watched this movie around one month ago and man it was horrible and boring! Only 1 scene made me laugh ! and i dont think that is enough to buy it on BD.

Crank was good too, it's one of the best looking Blu-rays out there. Lionsgate need to get thier shit together though, they've messed up a lot of titles I would have loved to own on Blu-ray with horrid transfers.

Has anyone seen this that will agree with the reviewer? I really enjoy this movie and was let down to see the review. I already had ordered it but its not too late to cancel it.
