Default 'Black Book' - High-Def Digest review

Kenneth's review of 'Black Book' is up. Although had mixed feelings about the film itself, he says a five-star video transfer and a lush high-end audio track make this Blu-ray release worth a look.

I am all over this one. It is already being considered a classic.

Yes, it's great movie that I've seen twice already.

Does anyone know if Sony's disc is region-coded?

Alternatively, does anyone know if Tartan's UK edition uses the same encode as Sony's?

I liked the movie a lot, and so did most of the world! The movie rates 8.1/10 on IMDB, so just take Kenneth's movie rating with a grain of salt...

Here's a Rotten Tomatoes link for more on the critical reception of the film itself.

I am not criticizing you in any way, I am only saying that most people will probably like it more than you did. I like that you didn't let your slight dislike of the movie affect the PQ/AQ score...

No offense taken -- I just wanted to toss the Rotten Tomatoes link in so people could look at the collective reception of the film (it scored in the mid 70s on the Tomatometer which places it much higher than my score).

This is one of those reviews where I knew I liked the film less than most people out there!

Thanks as always for posting

I liked the film a lot. I took on board some of the criticisms of the negative reviews, but I just found it a really enjoyable blockbuster with, perhaps, too much gratuitous nudity where the female lead was concerned - which is ultimately another selling point for many, no?
