Default Traffic - why no reviews?

I loved this movie, truly a classic. Just noticed best buy carrying it now and only $15 so ill probably pick it up regardless of what kind of transfer it got. But why is there no reviews on this?

That's Canada...not the US. There have been multiple reviews.

For releases that have already been released on , I just go by the review; they are most likely going to be the same transfer. But if its an Alliance (Canada) release, just remember there won't be any special features.

Also Alliance's transfers are usually terrible.

I disagree; I have A Nightmare on Elm Street, Sin City, Se7en, Requiem for a Dream, and From Dusk Till Dawn. They all have about what you would expect for a transfer from the source material. Granted, they messed up the Se7en aspect ratio but the picture was good. The other transfers are almost a guarantee to be the same transfer or comparable when they are released on in the U.S.

i agree w/ you, that Alliance has some nice looking titles, Sin City and From Dusk Till Dawn especially. But come on, Se7en? they butchered the aspect ratio, a severe no-no in my book, and it ain't that great looking.

OP- few sites cover canadian titles, as they have to go out and buy them themselves. a few sites do, but the timing can be sporadic. just be patient, as import reviews take a secondary seat to domestic reviews, as fewer people import, it's a niche market still.

I can't get enough of Benecio in this movie. He fits/plays that role like a motherfu....

I have this movie on HD-DVD and wouldn't mind getting a blu-ray copy...
