Default 'Open Season' - High-Def Digest Review

Hot damn! A five-star video rating for Open Season. Although according to Peter, that's pretty much all this substandard animated flick has going for it...

Another first? Isn't this the first Blu-ray exclusive to receive 5 stars?

I imagine it's less difficult for CGI animations to achieve top scores than live action movies. Think I'll just get this on DVD instead.

Default avc encoding

It would be nice if reviews included information on what encoder was used to compress the movies. For instance, I think Open Season was done by Technicolor's Tiger encoder which produces AVC streams that are far superior to anyone else's. So this would be good to know if the info is available to the reviewer.
