5.0 out of 5 stars Best Kubrick movie, best war movie, November 26, 2016

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
My Kubrick's favorite movie, and arguably, one of the best war movies of all time. I watched this movie at least 10 times, when I was an adolescent first, and then as an adult man. It always moves me to the unspeakable, and I've grown up very fond of it, its story, and most of all, its characters. This is easily among my top 20 favorite movies of all time. The bluray version looks absolutely great, the best possible, at least in my 65 inch screen!

5.0 out of 5 stars substantial improvement in the remastering and a superb version on disk, February 8, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is more about the BD quality than the movie itself. This version is substantially better than the bluray 2006 release, which didn't look much more than an upconverted DVD.

The sound quality is superior to DVD, in clarity and dynamic range. You can switch to PCM audio to further improve the sound's dynamic range even more. The transfer has much more vibrant colors and the images are sharper and finely detailed, making the BD purchase more worthwhile over the DVD.

4.0 out of 5 stars mixed feeling..., April 18, 2017
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Full Metal Jacket (25th Anniversary Edition) [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Great Kubrick film and a little improved image quality from previous blu-ray. But top and bottom of screen are still cropped as to compare to full screen version.
