    Mad Max With Original Soundtrack in DTS HD!

    Posted .

    Ok, Ok... I know calm down about the original soundtrack.. right? I was very excited to hear it for the first time, actually hearing Mel Gibson & Crew speak in their native language and I must admit you might wish to turn subtitles on since I still don't understand some of the things said, but was elated never the less! Video Quality A solid 4 stars here with the MPEG-4 AVC encoding of "Mad Max" that varies due to weather conditions..Let me explain! When the sun is bright the image is startling real with colors that burst & pop! The Interceptor's Yellows really stand out & the Australian Blue Sky is deep. Skin tones on the other hand appear a bit baked but not overly so. Filming on cloudy days really bring out the grain & you will notice the drop in color brightness from scene to scene. Clarity is fine & I could not find any enhancing of this video with film grain intact. Audio Quality As stated the original Australian soundtrack 5.1 DTS-HD sounds fantastic even tho the musical track is a bit louder than the rest of the audio. The Dubbed American version is in DD mono. I was very pleased with the audio offerings on this Blu-ray! Extra's How about a DVD copy? We are seeing less & less of this with releases of Digital copies becoming the norm, me personally, I would like the DVD and manipulate it into my own video format. I find the time limits placed on digital copies to be a nuisance. Commentary Track – Art director Jon Dowding, cinematographer David Eggby, special effects supervisor Chris Murray, and superfan Tim Ridge gather to talk about the film and its creation. While it obviously would have been great to have Gibson and Miller take part, fans of the film will be happy with this foursome. Mad Max: Film Phenomenon (SD, 26 min) – The foursome from the commentary track, as well as a few critics, talk about the making of the film. There is some overlap and the narration is slightly over the top with its praise. Mel Gibson: The High Octane Birth of a Superstar (SD, 17 min) – On the DVD, actress Piper Laurie is the most well-known participant of the people interviewed who speak about knowing Gibson around the time 'Mad Max' was created. Mad Facts Trivia Track – On the DVD, trivia pops up on the bottom of the screen International Poster Gallery (SD) – Exactly as the title describes. Trailers (SD) – On the Blu-ray, there are two for for 'Mad Max' as well as trailers for 'The Terminator', 'Species', 'Windtalkers', and 'Rollerball' (2002). On the DVD, there is the original Australian theatrical trailer, TV spots, and 'The Terminator: Special Edition' DVD Trailer In closing it's time to ditch the DVD & step up to this fine rendering of a great Australian classic.. I highly recommend this 2 Disc Set!

    Mel Gibson breakout film.

    I've always been a Mel Gibson fan, so I could care less about his personal views. I was pleased to finally get this on blu-ray. This is a great predecessor to the "Road Warrior". The film is really a drama masquerading as an action movie.

    I mean...the actor playing him as made some questionable decisions (no, not that), I’m talking about not accepting my Pulp Fiction meets Mars Attacks! spec script. Anyway...this was a Scream Factory release for super cheap. I bought it. Scene.

    This movie is a blast from the past. The blu Ray looks very good on a 4K tv. It is a bit dated but still holds up well.

    Saw this movie at the local movie theater back in 1979 and I just can't stop watching it since then, it never gets old, it looked good on VHS and it's even better on blu-ray.

    a surprise bonus !!!

    Posted .

    I purchased this Blu-ray Collectors Edition to replace my long missing MGM dvd. Along with top notch video and audio (for a movie made in 1979) there are many new extras here including an interview with Mel Gibson. In fact, all the interviews are informative and never boring if you are a fan of this movie. The best part tho is the "surprise bonus" which is why I gave this product the 5th star. When you remove the shrink wrap you can take the label cover art out of the see-thru sleeve, reverse it, re-insert it into the sleeve and...Bingo !!! You now have the original fantastic poster art from 1979 on the front of your blu-ray.
