Default '1408' - High-Def Digest Review

Peter's review of '1408' is up. He says it's a good Stephen King adaptation. This blu-ray has disappointing video, good audio, and plenty o' supplements. Worth a look, but he can't say it's a purchase.

Full review here:

Am I mistaken or did the imports of this seem to do a better job picwise? If so I'm REALLY disappointed in Harvey since Weinstein seemed to be consistent doing GOOD HD masters, not shit one's. It would be unfortunate to hear he's slacking off.

I have the import of this movie and I would rate the pq at least 3.5 out of 5. I wonder if Attebery used the import as the benchmark.

Any info on whether the U.S encode suffers from Jaggies like the import ?

I waited a long time for this on Blu, and now it looks like it's not even worth it. I'm getting sick of all these barely better than DVD transfers as of late.

Im getting it just because its one of my favorite movies.... but then again i never buy movies just based on reviews, im glad im not like that... because then my collection would be really small... and besides atleast the audio IS a damn good upgrade!
