Shining On Blu-Ray…

This latest addition to my collection is surely the most definitive presentation of the Superman Movies to date. As a recent convert to the Blu-Ray format (after a great deal of persuasion to convince me of its superiority!) I will state categorically that the series has never looked or sounded better and is therefore infinitely superior to DVD. That being said, the updated format lacks all the fun of DVD’s (no animated menus) and having been spoiled rotten by the sheer glory of the Ultimate Edition DVD steel tin and interior packaging, The flimsy cardboard case with pedestrian layout & generic artwork leaves much to be desired. With a far more-manageable 8-disc collection rather than 13, content-wise everything is retained and there are some nice new additions, most notably the ‘Return To Krypton’ deleted scene from Superman Returns. As fantastic and in-depth reviews of the features can be found online all I will add is that this set was remarkably affordable and absolutely worth making the leap in a single bound from DVD…
