Cruisin’

HD DVD

I love the colour palette of this film. Given that so many action movies tend to go with dingy, desaturated visuals, I’m glad J.J. Abrams went down the opposite route and pumped the saturation to an almost ridiculous level. Somehow it seems more befitting of a big, dumb blockbuster than the near black and white moroseness we usually get. Paramount have done a really nice job of the HD DVD release, too. It was quite difficult to get decent captures due to the fact that the camera shakes around almost as much as it does in a Michael Bay film, but the images below should at least give some idea of the disc’s look. There are some visible compression artefacts here and there - the only flaw preventing this disc from being a 10/10 affair.
