    Amazing Blue Ray

    |
    Posted .

    The Silence of the Lambs finally debuts on Blu-ray with an MPEG-2 encoded 1080p high definition transfer, presented inside a 1.85:1 frame. The image is fairly grainy, and black backgrounds generally see a spike in the level of visible noise. The film has a bleak, depressed look about it through much of the runtime, setting the tone for the feel of the film and the grisly characters that inhabit it. Colors, too, are slightly dulled in some scenes but a bit brighter in others. They are always stable and strong and never too harsh and overblown or underdeveloped. Fine detail is adequate but not stunning. The rough textures of Lecter's cell walls and the pit where Bill keeps his victims are fairly well defined, but there are no earth-shattering levels of fine detail seen here. Other objects look better under the right conditions, a tape recorder and several drawings seen in Lecter's Tennessee holding cell, for example, offer higher levels of visible detail than do those in darker, danker, grimier locales. Flesh tones look good throughout. Blacks, aside from seeing a rather heavy level of noise, are dark but not always deep and inky, and there is occasionally a slight loss of fine detail in the darker corners of the image. The Silence of the Lambs offers a bland visual style that will never sparkle on any format, and it is reproduced fairly well on this Blu-ray release.

    Criterion Awesomness

    |
    Posted .

    This is the only Criterion Blu-Ray I have purchased. The special features go crazy in depth and the film looks as good as it possibly can, until the eventual 4K release. When watching, choose the 2.0 audio option as opposed the the new 5.1 remaster. The 5.1 is quiet and the 2.0 is superior.

    Movies at a bargain!

    |
    Posted .

    We were looking around at another retailer and couldn't find the movie we wanted and happened to stop in to Best Buy wondering if there was a collection of movies that were of similar bargain prices like the huge retail store we came from. Sure enough, after looking at the available movies we found what we were looking for and could view it that evening, and at the same price as the other retailer! Sometimes it is nice just to be able to drive around somewhere instead of having everything come to you. There are movies galore at this location and surely they will have others. Now there is an alternative to the red machine at other shops or the collections at other big retailers. Best Buy has them on shelves and not in bins!

    I am not scared by horror movies because they are not scary to me. Thrillers like Silence of the Lambs are so much better. I’m happy to finally get this on Blu-ray.

    Butterflies, lambs, prison, and pure fear..

    A brilliant adaptation of the book of the same name, The Silence of the Lambs depicts a young FBI recruit talking too a convicted serial killer. She is searching for a current serial killer that is taking women all over an area in the mid west.. He helps her but she has to help him as well.. Anthony Hopkins and Jodie Foster are outstanding in this. The suspense and paranoid fear searching for an answer is awesome to watch. A great crime thriller!

    Excellent film, okay Blu-ray transfer.

    |
    Posted .

    By now, most of you will be familiar with this film. Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins are both excellent in this thrilling and dark adaptation of the Thomas Harris novel. It has now been over 5 years since this film was release on Blu-ray, and this adaptation stands above any of the DVD or VHS versions that preceded it. However, it is by no means perfect. The picture in this film, while sharper and more detailed than the DVD release, still suffers from inconsistent black levels and a fair amount of noise in the picture. It isn't terrible for a 23 year old film, but compared to modern films on Blu-ray, shot with digital cameras, the age definitely shows. This movie could benefit from a remastered edition, but currently I don't believe one is in the works. On the audio side, the score is haunting and engaging, but the Lossless 5.1 audio track has few discrete surround effects, and makes little use of immersive surround elements in general. Overall, the movie is excellent, and I would recommend it. While still flawed, it is the best transfer of the film to date. As a reference disc for what Blu-ray can do on the technology side it still falls woefully short. At the current price of $4.99 at Best Buy however, I would recommend it even to those unfamiliar with the film. You won't be disappointed.

    Criterion Perfection

    |
    Posted .

    I originally owned the Criterion DVD release of 'Silence of the Lambs' and was overdue for an upgrade (the DVD version wasn't enhanced for widescreen). The jump from the DVD to updated Blu-Ray is staggering - beautiful playback (especially when coupled with a 4K upscaling player) and a wealth of bonus material. The included documentaries are worth the purchase price alone. A must for fans of the film.

    From VHS to BluRay

    Posted .

    I have loved this movie since I was a child, however I always remember us watching it on a VHS player and a 32 inch color screen Television with Stereo sound. Now that i have upgraded to a 50 inch flat screen 240hz LED TV with 3D capability... my movie experience has completely changed for some films. After buying this BluRay, I was able to enjoy one of my favorite movies with so much more clarity and better sound quality that previous technology lacks. Also a plus, theres not a ton of advertisements on this BluRay! I'd recommend this to anyone who wants to see a great cult classic.

    Great Film

    |
    Posted .

    I've seen many, many movies, and while 'Silence of the Lambs' may not come up in my discussions with friends about our favorite movies, this film is without a doubt one of the best movies ever made. It's suspenseful at the right times, it's uneasy, and it features one of the most iconic evil characters of all time (Anthony Hopkins as Hannibal Lecter is a legendary performance). All of the sequels failed to live up to the expectations set forth by the original...but how could they?

    Great Movie - Great Package

    I always have to get the Criterion versions of movies that I love. This one doesn't disappoint. There are plenty of supplemental features for lovers of this movie, and it comes in the special cardboard packaging, not the standard clear, plastic case like most Criterion editions.

    One of the All-Time Classic Thrillers

    |
    Posted .

    This movie is Jodie Foster and Anthony Hokpins at their best. A young FBI trainee (Foster) gets to work with an imprisoned master serial killer (Hopkins) to try to catch another serial killer who has a Senator's daughter as his captive. The twists and turns of this movie will have you on the edge of your seat.

    A masterful suspense thriller

    |
    Posted .

    Having read the book, this movie pulled off the same feelings of suspense, horror and anticipation that I had when I read it. The acting is fantastic all the way around and how could you not like Anthony Hopkins iconic portrayal of Hannibal Lecter? The plot is dynamic and I have to hand it to the director, Jonathan Demme, for pulling it off. Too bad the other movies associated with this one were not as impressive.

    From the first time I saw Silence of the Lambs, I was hooked. Talk about suspense! Yes we know early on who the killer is, but how will they catch him; that's the question. It was an excellent "date" movie to hold your sweetheart's hand.

    Silence of the Lambs in 1080p. I actually still prefer 1080p over 4K, so this was the right choice for me
