Default 'Inside Man' - High-Def Digest Review

Our review of 'Inside Man' has been posted. This is a thriller with a few interesting twists. The Blu-ray has fantabulous audio and video, along with some respectable extras. Highly recommended.

The VC-1 encoded 1080p transfer (aspect ratio: 2.35:1, region coded 'A') is absolutely gorgeous. There's really nothing bad I can say about it.
... apart from giving it an 8/10. So there's a 20% discrepancy there. The HD DVD, which is the same video encode, got a 9/10.

ken reviewed the HD VD version and boasts about how pristine the picture is execpt for the occasional blurry shot. He also talks highly about the cinematography thats featured in the film.

"In fact, my only minor issue came as a byproduct of Lee's intentionally high contrast, which often leads to crushing and hot whites"

This is something that Drew picked up on in his review for the BR release.The issue that Drew brings up is not noted in kens review. Just seems like the 2 reviewers had differing thoughs about the picture itself.

So 1 reviewer gave it 3 and another gave it 4. That's what reviewers do. Put 10 reviewers in the same room watching the same movie and you'll get 10 different opinions on at least one thing or another. That's why YOU need to judge for yourself and take reviewers opinions as just that - opinions! Nothing more. To each his or her own I say. And if you happen to agree with a reviewer totally then something's wrong somewhere or someone's lying - I don't know. LoL.

It still doesn't explain this bizarre inconsistency.

"Plummer has something in a safe deposit box in the bank that Owen is robbing, and he will do just about anything to keep that deposit box from being opened."

I think you could have and should have left that line out of your review. There is absolutely no need for the uninformed reader to know that. And there is certainly no need for the reader to know that Plummer is slimy character, because when he's introduced, you just think he's an innocent bank owner.

Please remember that its not your job to give an outline of the plot. Its simply your job to 1) say whether you liked it or not, and 2) give your assessment of audio/pic/supplement quality. Thanks.

Yes, it does actually. It's not like one said it was terrible and one said it was great. Both said it was a very good transfer, but each reviewer felt that it warranted a slightly different score due to some slight issues that came up.
