Default Multiple perfect reviews for Benjamn Buttons!!

I have never seen this flick. Looked alright to me. But the disc review of this flick has gotten perfect scores from both IGN and Highdefdiscnews. First time I have seen perfect scored reviews for the same flick. Is the disc really that good (PQ, AQ, Bonus Features)??

Thanks for all responses!

Well have you seen "Zodiac" on bluray? Its one of the best transfers out there. It was shot on those fancy ViperCams, both Benjamin Button and Zodiac, so I would expect it to be fantastic as well.

I can't wait to pick this one up today -- my first Criterion too!

Yeah true.

Anything released by David Fincher (on blu) so far has been top-notch in every department (AQ/PQ/Features/etc)

Plus the films (Zodiac/CCBB) both run approx: 165 mins and both have "making-of" features that are about 3 hours. I love the consistency. Hope others pick up on this.

Blu-ray.com also gave it a perfect 5.0 across the board: from the film to the audio to the video to the extras.

I was just gonna ask how the movie was since everyone was climaxing over the PQ/AQ. Is the movie bad or does Brad Pitt ruin it like everything else hes in?

I was gonna rent this...now, I might not even bother.
