Default 'Waltz with Bashir' - High-Def Digest Review

Drew has reviewed 'Waltz with Bashir.' He has a few concerns regarding the film's techniques, but says it's certainly worthwhile. The video and audio on this Blu-ray are "superb." Extras are few, but potent. Highly recommended.

Keep in mind that I've seen the film several times now, including my first viewing at a New York Film Festival press screening, where director Ari Folman spoke to us afterwards.
well la-di-da

I have been wanting to see this for a long time, I will give it a rent.

PS why are screen caps missing from recent reviews, they were never that great to begin with (especially compared to other sites that give high resolution caps) but for a movie like this, I think it would be helpful.

We've never used screen caps in our reviews to any great extent. There may be some pictures on the sides of the articles for illustration, but those are generally publicity stills from the studio, and aren't intended to represent what the disc looks like.

There is a long argument to be had about the usefulness or lack thereof of screen caps. They are too easily misused and misunderstood. The purpose of the reviews here is to provide the reviewer's analysis of the disc's technical qualities. That what we're paid for, not for cutting and pasting screen caps.

Yep. Not only that, I think most of us have a player that isn't connected to a PC. I had to get a new laptop so I bought one with a Blu-ray player in it since my Panasonic standalone isn't 2.0 compliant, but I still can't figure out how to take snapshots. I used to be able to do it on my other laptop with WinDVD, but it's not here anymore.

Saw this in theaters and thought it was pretty incredible. I loved the music and animation.

The music was definitely fantastic...didn't need to see Ron Jeremy cartoon erection on screen (talk about detraction/distraction, and I guess they modeled it after him since he was listed in the credits :| ), but the story was engaging and given that it was based on nonfiction even made it more meaningful/powerful. It simply serves as another window into some of the warped minds that continue to shape the conflict and perpetuate it.
