Default 'Surf's Up' - High-Def Digest review

Just posted Peter's review of 'Surf's Up.' He says this is not the greatest animated flick you'll see, but as a Blu-ray release, this one's nearly aces, boasting a perfect five star audio rating and strong scores for both video and supplements.

Full review here:

yeah this is a difficult one to review because of the intentional grain but I could imagine some of the beach scenes are absolutely flawless.

I cant wait to pick this up on release

This a a blind buy for me

"The image is a hampered at times by the intentionally-degraded video quality".

I guess the directors made a mistake for doing the movie in a documentary style and having grain. Maybe he should put some of the missing blu tint in the movie and no grain in the documentary style he was trying to do.

Will buy this when released in Oz. I'm a sucker for animation. As for PQ is good to see a change every now and then.

Just to reiterate, the TrueHD track is 24/48, not 16/48

the truehd track matches the studio master

Personally, I liked the documentary-style storytelling with the intentional grain. It was different. It'll still look awesome on my TV, and that's all that matters. Well, sound aside, that is.
