Default 'Seabiscuit' - High-Def Digest Review

Our review of 'Seabiscuit' has been posted. Simply put, this one is winner. Check it out, even if you don't think it will be your cup of tea. This Blu-ray has great video and audio and plenty of supplements. Recommended.

I'm staying with HD DVD.


I love this movie.

I grew up going to the track with my dad, and betting on the ponies was one of those father/son bonding experiences.

The nostalgia cuts quite thick with this one. Even cooler, and a nice touch, race horse jockey Gary Stevens makes an appearance. He's got chops. I had to do a double take with the ending credits, because it was a really subtle/short/performance/role.

Like Bracke, I thought I would loathe this movie. I wasn't even looking forward to seeing it. By the end, I have to admit that I teared up a little. What a terrific, feel-good movie. And it's really quite timely to release it during a time when we are once again facing a harsh economic climate (though not quite Depression-era in magnitude... yet). Highly recommended if you're looking to escape for 2 and half hours or just looking for a movie to make you feel good.

Again, what a shame.
Do the studios really expect me to buy this again? Yes the lossless is a plus, but why are the supplemental features in sd? Would it have broken their greedy banks to give us a that is all 1080p?

No, they probably expect more people to buy who don't already own it on HD DVD.

If the supplements were only mastered in standard definition, what would be the point in trying to upconvert them to 1080p?

For the same reasons movies filmed with a camera should look as crystal clear perfect as a Pixar animated film?

Why have you stopped linking do the 'Non format-specific portions of this review also appear in our HD DVD review of '_____''
It happened in this article and in Spy Game.

Oh well, will pick this up on HD DVD if I see it
