Default Raging Bull thoughts/reviews?

Any other reviews out yet of Raging Bull other than DVD Baver?

Debating on whether to buy it or not.

Anyone have it yet?


Also....anyone hear anything of the Taxi Driver BR release? That seems to have disappeared.

It's been available on Amazon for months, even able to be pre-ordered but it still doesn't have a release date.

They gave a great review of RB. Fry's has it for $20.99 over this weekend. I am either buying tonight or ordering it through Amazon.

I watched the BD two nights ago, man, what a great film and the disc is near flawless, considering the style/source it was shot on.


There's about 95% of ZERO DNR applied. The only instance of DNR that I was able to detect, was in Jake Lamotta's last fight with Sugar Ray Robinson.


Still, that was not enough to detract me from enjoying this masterpiece of cinema.


BUY IT NOW!

Mine arrived today but I have not watched it yet.

I'm really looking forward to though. Everything that I have read so far tells me that the Blu-ray version is really good.

Has anyone done a direct comparison between the blu-ray and the most recent DVD? I really thought the image looked excellent on the dvd and didn't think it could really improve that much in HD. DVDBeaver seems to think otherwise, but that's the only comparison I've come across.
Anyone care to comment?

I thought the Blu-ray looked pretty good but can't compare to DVD as I don't watch that format any more.

Thanks, Jimbo.
Surely there must be a few others who've seen these great movie on both DVD and BD?...

30th anniversary edition coming, I guess.

I know it came out on Blu barely 15 months ago, but you know how the studios love an anniversary double dip.
