Blu-ray Review: Close Encounters of the Third Kind

By The HT Guys • Jan 4 2008, 3:00pm

Since we received positive feedback on the Transformers technical review we did a few months back, we decided to make them monthly features. We'll alternate between Blu Ray Discs and HD DVD discs. For our second technical movie review we chose Close Encounters of the Third Kind. I (Ara) remember watching this movie as a teenager. I was about 15 years old and remember how I marveled at the special effects and cinematography. When the 30th Anniversary version came out on Blu Ray I knew that I was going to buy it and make it part of my library. I wondered how would a movie that was made in the late 70's hold up technically after all these years. Overall, we have to say it help up pretty darn good. It may not be a movie you use to show off your new HDTV and Blu Ray player but it did provide much entertainment for the entire family.
