Default 'Kit Kittredge: An American Girl' - High-Def Digest Review

Peter's review of 'Kit Kittredge: An American Girl' has been posted. He says this is a far better movie than one based on a doll line has any reason to be. This Blu-ray however is a huge disappointment, with a lousy transfer, middling sound, and no supplements. Still, the movie itself makes it worth a rental

Yikes! 2 star video review for a new big studio release, that's pretty weak.

Remember that Warner Bros. took over New Line, which means you won't see anymore DTS-HD MA 7.1 tracks or superb video quality.

Meh.... I wouldn't say New Line had superb video quality. They had good PQ but, it wasn't anywhere near the best out there, mainly because NL had a terrible habit of overuse of DNR (Dark City, Hairspray and Pans Labyrinth to name a few).

The only real 'superb' PQ release was Shoot 'em Up. Shitty film, great (DNR free) picture.

"Hairspray" did seem pretty clean. Not to sound like a jerk but would it have been so hard for Warner to put these latest films on hold and include more extra's as well Lossless sound as well? The credibility it would've gained them compared to what they'd of lost would've been a godsend for them. I mean in terms of seriously audiophiles and movie buyers like us. JMO. I mean seriously except for "Sex and the City" which of these New Line movies hasn't been a go through the motions effort by them? I mean seriously, BD-25's with no Lossless and little to no extra's.
