Monsterís Ball (2001/Lionsgate Blu-ray)

A long while ago, we covered the DVD of Marc Forsterís Monsterís Ball (2001) and here is that coverage:

My feelings about the film remain, it holds up very well after Halle Berryís many commercial excursions remaining Oscar-caliber, Billy Bob Thorntonís career path and has a new sadness in the performance of Heath Ledger, who showed he could act as early as this film.Now on Blu-ray, this is the best version to date.

 

However, the Super 35mm filmed 2.35 X 1 image is still a little soft in this 1080p digital High Definition transfer and could look a little better, while the DTS HD Master Audio (MA) lossless track shows limits in the sound mix, but this is a low budget film and is only going to be so dynamic.At least I got my wish for DTS and it is much better than the Dolby on the DVD, which is absent here.Extras are the same as the DVD.
