Default 'Blades of Glory' - High-Def Digest Review

Peter's review of 'Blades of Glory' has been posted. He says it's very
funny, and smarter and better acted than you might expect. This
Blu-ray easily matches the previous HD DVD version in terms of video,
and offers an upgrade to high-res audio. The extras are extensive and
entertaining. Well worth picking up.

Default Mistake in review.

Um.... mistake??

Wrong movie and wrong.... everything.

so why does the blu-ray not get an additional star for having uncompressed audio versus the hd-dvd that received 4 stars for a dolby digital track?

The HD-DVD did have a Dolby Digital Plus track...is that the same as "standard Dolby Digital 5.1"?

He probably forgot. or can't seem to give credit to where credit is due. the blu-ray version is better. can't wait for the pcm track on transformers to do the same.

Yeah I love reading the reviews I think they are very well done but the star system has always been wacky at points. Like Hot Fuzz...it got 5 stars overall but had 4 stars or lower in some categories which doesn't make sense. It's like giving a student an A+ when he got a few answers wrong.

I agree. I am Legend gets 5 star sound but M&C puts it to bed but only got 4.5. there needs to be more separation. 10 point system or go to 6 stars.
