Thumbs up 'Happy Feet' - High-Def Digest Review

Peter's review of 'Happy Feet' on Blu-ray is up. Boasting reference quality video, this 5-star video transfer is sure to leave Blu-ray fans dancing. Unfortunately, the included Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround EX track, while also quite good, is a step down on this Blu-ray edition when compared to its HD DVD counterpart's Dolby TrueHD track. Of course, such differences will only be obvious to hard core audiophiles, so unless you count yourself as one of this, this one's still a must-own.

Full review here:

I can't believe this movie is already coming out on DVD/Blu-Ray. It's still in theaters here.

This movie should be my 50th Blu-ray. I am surprise it got a 5 star video rating - its only BD25. I wonder if its going to be like Departed in sales compared to HD DVD.

if the disc is 25 gb instead of 50 gb, it should have the best PQ possible. the less gigabytes on a disc, the more room for space and great PQ. all a 50 gb disc is is a lot of extras and a disc that was harder to make a good PQ.

i'm not big in these movies anymore but since most of the animated high def releases have gotten amazing PQ reviews, i decided that i was going to buy one hd movie from the high def genre and one animal documentary or discovery or national geographic hd movie for the genre as well. i herd good things about open season and its PQ but this movie was the one i completley decided to buy for the genre. and with this site and dvdtown saying that the PQ is perfect, i'm planning on picking this up with high confidence.

That might depend on the movie, if it is a short movie than with full audio and video settings on it could fit on 25G. But with longer ones, I believe they need 50G.

I just reading a lot that most people find that 50G disks are better quality than 25G disks in general. Eragon is a 25G and I thought the quality was very good.
