SRP $34.99 2.35:1 PCM 5.1 BUENA VISTA
 

Although this reviewer hated all three of the "PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN" films, one can't doubt its popularity, hence the success of its sequels. It's many fans will undoubtedly revel in the incredible presentation it's been given on blu-ray, courtesy of BUENA VISTA.

BUENA VISTA has provided a 1080p/MPEG-4 transfer with the correct 2.35:1 aspect ratio. It would be hard to find another high definition release wherein colors are deeper, and the blacks and greys are better displayed, well,...maybe its sequel.  The depth in every single scene is virtually unprecedented on blu-ray. It's just that good!  We tried to find one scene that had flaws and we couldn't. It's a spectacular looking transfer, with scenes that just keep jumping off the screen with realism! WOW!!!  A DEMONSTRATION QUALITY TRANSFER!!!

BUENA VISTA has provided a PCM 5.1 mix to rival the image quality. From beginning to end, it would be a challenge to find a more immersive, fun-filled mix. Storms at sea have never felt this involving before, and there are enough discrete, panning, and surround effects to thrill the audience all the way through.  The deep bass effects, stirring score and more, never overshadow the dialogue. THIS IS A REFERENCE QUALITY SOUNDMIX!!!

BUENA VISTA has carried over all three commentaries from the previously available dvd, as well as providing a great documentary, featurettes and much more!!!
