Default 'Transformers' - High-Def Digest Review

Peter's review of 'Transformers' has been posted. Let's cut to the chase, he says this Blu-ray is demo material. Highly recommended.

Full review here:

Very nice. Been looking forward to this review for a while. Nice to see the Blu-ray's TrueHD easily trumps the DD on the HD DVD.

You know, as a former HD DVD fanboi, I was proud to have this movie as an exclusive to the format I loved...until I saw it.

Actually the HD DVD version had Dolby Digital Plus and was highly touted for it's audio! So that's a mistake on Peter's part.

For one, the review states the HD DVD had standard DD which is false...secondly, it looks like he went back to the HD DVD review and changed the audio score to 4 stars...

Exactly. I would never diminish the fact that the blu has lossless, but he should not have tried to minimize the audio on the HD DVD, it was in fact DD+ at 1.5mbps and sounded quite good.

The movie, on the other hand, is SH!T.

Yep, it got four stars for its DDP audio, and the Blu-ray gets a perfect five for its TrueHD.

Wow... talk abotu ninja edits. I specifically remember the DD+ audio on the HD DVD to be bloody outstanding. It trumped plenty of discs TrueHD and DTS HD MA tracks. The BD version -might- be better, but it can't be by much.

It must have been recently ninja edited. It was 5 originally. It was considered the best disc for audio in 2007.

For me personally I thought the movie was kind of bleh. I think the reason is the robots dont look unique enough to me when they are transformed. Not to mention Megatron should have been a gun!

All bitching a side, its nice to see that their is a lossless audio track. Think I will update my copy later on when this one reaches the $15 bin.
