Default 2010 Reviews?

Hi folks. Huge fan of this film and I'd like to upgrade the poor DVD version of it but I want to make sure the A/V are top notch before taking the plunge. I know the BD version is very slim on extras but I only care about A/V quality.

Any reviews out there besides the one on DVD Beaver?

That's all I could find-thanks for posting it so I could read it. Not sure why there aren't any others out there

This is a favorite of mine and even if its just average it will be a huge jump over the non-anamorphic dvd and when you factor in TrueHD sound its a no brainer.

I've never seen 2001 so would I be completely lost if I watched 2010 or is it more or less standalone in nature???

I just got it in the mail today. I'll be watching it a little later on tonight and I'll give my impressions of the transfer in this thread. I love this movie.

Why not just buy 2001 one Blu-ray first ?

Because from what I've heard it's WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYY too slow for my tastes. 2010 I've heard is much different in style.

Its certainly a different style, but its not exactly a Michael Bay movie either

I picked this up last night. Massive improvement over the standard DVD. It can be very grainy in certain parts (especially scenes early on in Floyd's home). A also noticed some digital "shimmering" in the dark/black shadows of the special effect space shots. I flipped back and forth between the TrueHD and DD tracks and didn't notice a whole lot of difference between the two, but sound quality is good for this 1984 movie.

Overall, I'm just happy to finally have this film in an anamorphic transfer. I didn't expect Warner to pull out all the stops and do a Blade Runner-style restoration effort on 2010. For fans, this is a must have. Now, bring on Hyams' OUTLAND!!!!!
