HD DVD review: Babel

HD DVD
One of the better modern films to see a high definition release gets an excellent presentation on HD DVD. The lack of extras is disappointing, but, given that this sparsity matches the film’s standard definition counterpart, it’s hard in this particular case to feel too short-changed. It may not be the sort of material to show off the full capabilities of your home theatre setup, but it’s a solid representation of its source material, and as such, Babel gets my unreserved recommendation.

Courtesy of DVD Pacific, I’ve reviewed the HD DVD release of Babel, the third instalment in Alejandro González Iñárritu’s loose trilogy of fractured narratives. The film receives an excellent presentation from Paramount.

We disagree again... no big surprise here!
BABEL was one of the worst "cinematic experience" I endured last year.
A pretencious, boring and illogical film.
The director desperatly tries to make 4 boring stories work together in the most laughable way.

This is the kind of movie film students will masturbate to.
