Adaptation: Superbit Edition DVD Review
SRP: £26.95

Extras

Provided are a trailer and filmographies for the cast and crew, which is more than you usually get for a superbit title. It is strange that Columbia have released this new movie as a superbit title first, but I have no doubt that a feature packed edition is on its way soon.

If you like quirky, funny and totally surreal cinema, look no further than this gem, with a good presentation on disc.

Picture

Presented here in 1.85:1 Anamorphic widescreen and being a superbit title the image is first rate. There are a few specs of dirt here and there but overall the image is brilliant with strong and stable colours and solid blacks. There are no signs of edge enhancement and there is plenty of detail available within the print for all to see, with very high contrast ranges between scenes. A first rate transfer and presentation, top marks.

Sound

Being a dialogue driven picture most of the action is fixed squarely onto the screen, so having both Dolby Digital and dts 5.1 tracks seems a little over the top. The soundtrack however is clear and crisp and that all important dialogue is intelligible throughout. The dts track here does seem to sound less compressed and more open than the dolby equivalent, but there is not a lot of action panning to take full advantage of both technologies, it's just not that type of movie.
