Default 'Patton' - High-Def Digest review

Just posted Kenneth's review of 'Patton.' He's a longtime fan of the film and says this 2-disc Blu-ray edition from Fox offers up an excellent video transfer, an above average DTS-HD MA catalog audio track, and a vast reservoir of supplements that are worth the price of admission alone.

Been waiting for this movie for so long. The wait is almost over. It's nice to see your review mirror the other ones I have read. This one looks like a real winner.

Can't wait to see this for myself. The intro will probably bring tears to my eyes for how good it looks and sounds.

Default Patton has one of my favourit movie quotes

Pardon me if i butcher this quote but i get immense joy every time i hear George C. Scott talk about the meaning of war to his troops. " War isn't about dying for your country, it's about making the enemy die for his".

To the guy who hasn't seen it before you're in for a real treat, truly one of my top ten favourite films of all time.

Glad to see Fox give this movie the right treatment. This will be a must buy for me only when I see it on sale as I refuse to give Fox any money for over priced catalog movies.

Default Love Patton...

but as much as I wish I was 21 rather than 31, the movie is actually 38 years old not 28, but that makes the transfer all that much more impressive!

That's why I didn't become an accountant

Thanks for catching the mistake -- it's been corrected!

lol, i think patton's is "making the other poor bastard die for his."

I really want this title, but almost 30 dollars for a catalog release is so steep. I hope we get one of those fry's Fox sales, the 2 for 30 deal, otherwise I just cannot justify the price tag. If they dropped it to $20, I reckon they'd sell a lot more, enough to grossly outweigh the drop in price.
