Default 'Dog Day Afternoon' - High-Def Digest

We just posted Peter's review of the HD DVD edition of 'Dog Day Afternoon.' Peter loves the movie itself, and it looks like another winning remaster from Warner, boasting four (out of five) stars for for its video transfer.

I am genuinely excited to see this movie, as this will be my first time. I was trying to decide (since I can only pick one up tomorrow, and the next one friday) what to pick up and now, I have made my decision, thanks

This review just pushed me over the edge.

Ended up getting it for $11.89 with the 10 off google checkout deal.

I already bought remastered DVD last year. I'm still thinking if I need to get HD version or not (same as Getaway) :<

Default Can't Find!

This was the only title this week that I was unable to find at the store. I looked though BB in San Rafael and CC and both had none of the new releases. I was able to get A Scanner Darkly & Payback in Santa Rosa though. Seems that they aren't planning on ordering any either. They said that they don't have anything in their systems at BB regarding any of the new titles for both formats.

I guess I'll be buying @ Amazon. And I wanted to watch this title first.

Yeah, I can't even find it for rent anywhere. Blockbuster and GamezNFlix don't have it in stock.

I received Dog Day Afternoon HD DVD on Monday via the Warner sale ($14.36) and overall the picture and sound quality was good. I remember seeing the DVD when it was released in the snapper case and that was one of the worst transfers I had ever seen. The HD DVD still has some film grain during the interior bank scenes, but all of the outside shots look like a brand new movie and benefit from being shown in HD. The colors look great and along with the detail are both an improvement over the Two-Disc Special Edition DVD.
