Default 'Tekkonkinkreet' - High-Def Digest review

Kenneth's review of 'Tekkonkinkreet' is up. Although the film itself sounds pretty complex, he says this Blu-ray is another winner from Sony, boasting a beautiful transfer and an uncompressed PCM mix that work hand-in-hand to enhance the film.

As a movie watcher who's anime interests don't extend very far, I was intrigued by the tagline "From the creators of the Animatrix"...

Thus my fantastic voyage with this movie began. It was a Blind buy to encourage Sony to release more catalog cartoons on HD but I am very happy with the quality of this movie.

It's easy to understand and apparently not a bad intro to the anime genre. I think most people will enjoy it's charming story but the PQ will blow away anyone who isn't a believer in HD animation.

I give it a Thumbs Up and would at the very least, recommend a rent.

I love Japanese animated films
This will be added to my collection on 10/24 when it's released in Australia.
I'm gald the Japanese audio has been given the usual uncompressed treatment.
Also thumbs up to Sony for releasing a wide range of titles

I'm really interested in seeing this. I'm planning a blind buy. Unfortunatley my Best Buy didn't have it last time I was there.

i'm actually pretty excited by this release... not knowing too much about the story though, i'll be waiting for blockbuster to be shipping it out to me before i make a buy/don't buy decision.

Just ordered from amazon, since CC/BB refuse to stock it.

Can't wait for it.

I picked up my copy at a Canadian Best Buy so I am sure the chain is stocking them. Our store up here is very big and has a huge selection of Blu-Rays so it wouldn't surprise me if this title wasn't sold at some of the less busy locations...

If he worked on Princess Mononoke, this has got to be good.

Their stocking choices might be different in Canada. I know I checked their website on the day of release and it said "No available in stores" on their website, so I just ordered it elsewhere.

Saw this earlier today, gorgeous HD PQ but not much else that blew my skirt up in terms of the show itself. I'm not the type who likes most meta-physical/experimental anime or when the "standard-genre" nature of anime shows turns into philosophical acid trips. I also didn't like the character design/art style as much as I usually do, even when I typically accept any anime style well...so, anyway, this whole amalgam didn't do much for me at all.

I suggest most people, even anime fans, rent this first. I think it will split people in the same vein of shows like Serial Experiments Lain.
