    Hi all,
    Last night I watched "Crimson TIde" ... on Laserdisc !!!!

    I bought this R1 title when it was first released many many moons ago.

    Film :- Excellent

    The two leading players Denzel Washington & Gene Hackman are both on cracking form.

    Video :- Excellent

    This well mastered disc would still give a lot of today's DVD releases a run for their money.O.K. so being analogue video, colours are not as stable with reds and blues tending to fizz slightly and there is no anamorphic widescreen transfer but overall the picture seems more filmlike and less processed than
    many DVD tranfers.

    Audio :- Excellent

    Brilliant steering and IMOHO more open and dynamic sounding than DVD.


    Ease of use wise,Yes side and disc changes are a bind & clunky to say the least and Yes slo-mo & still frame isnt always available but on the plus side it is refreshing to be able to watch a movie without first having to negotiate one of those annoying animated menus
    All in all after living with DVD for such a long time it is good to back to the former premier format and find it such an enjoyable experience.

    Nothing short of boring when compared to "Das Boot".
