Default 'The Descent' - High-Def Digest Review

By popular demand, we've finally posted Peter's review of 'The Descent' on Blu-ray (the title first hit stores in late December). This one is yet another rave, earning near-perfect scores for both video and audio. The HD-exclusive "Underground Experience" video commentary is the icing on the cake.

Full review here:

I'm starting to really appreciate Lionsgate now. They always release high quality discs. They know what their doing!

Now, if only Fox would learn from them...

Lionsgate isn't always good, Stargate was awful. Near VHS quality at times.

Really? I'd have to check that out.

Peter gave it a 4/5 in PQ in his review.

I agree this is the best bluray I own (until Kill Bill comes out).. and one of the scariest movies I've evern seen. Lionsgate did a great job. Now they need to release Hard Candy on bluray.

This one won't play on my Sony BDP-S1!

Press play and it simply sticks in play mode without actually playing the movie.
