Default 'Elf' - High-Def Digest Review

Ken has reviewed 'Elf.' He's a fan of this holiday comedy. This Blu-ray offers much improved video, TrueHD audio, and supplements for all age levels. Recommended.

I have never been a fan of this movie, I actually feel its a bit overrated. Just my opinion

Thought I would hate this movie but actually really liked it. Was a TON funnier than the previews let on, though still not high comedic art - a solid effort.

Also, didn't know Favreau did Zathura - might check that out now as I pretty much like Jon's work.

I'd give this 2.5/5. I find no replay value on it. Just a rent.

Reviewers better line up with the rabid LOSSLESS or it SUCKS crowd. This movie get a 3.5 for audio and has lossless. Get Smart gets a 3.0 for audio and doesn't have lossless.

Either it's a big deal, or it's a half-star. Which is it?

a lossless soundtrack can suck and a lossy soundtrack can be great

just because you use a certain codec doesn't automatically give it a certain amount of stars

Agreed, it's all about the mix.
