Great steelbook boxset - especially for the price.

5

This is a great release, the steelbook and all the included extras are well worth the price, especially at this discount! No complaints at all.

A classic film with a worthy 4K release.

5

Having owned this on Betamax, VHS and DVD, I just had to have the 4K steelbook. It’s a fantastic set and the film transfer doesn’t disappoint.

Quality release

5

I appreciate when care is put into the presentation and this release has a nice hard box housing a steelbook and other goodies. Film looks great restored in 4K as well with all the natural film grain intact. A blu-ray of the film is also included and is region free, which is good.

Awesome edition!

Awese all round. The upscaled 4k version is a joy to behold for people like me so used to have watching it on video greoing up. The steelbook case and extras are also really nice. Great price Zavvi and quickly delivered!

One Thing Missing

5

As far as the movie goes, it’s Five stars all the way. No doubt. This trend of 4K rereleases, though…I must say, I’m not that impressed. I compared the 4K of Animal House, to the Blu-ray 1080p. A good example of the difference is the exact shot of Flounder and Pinto (not yet named, though) with Belushi, right as Bluto turns to them and smiles mischievously, right before swinging the front door open for them. That scene. Look at the speckled pattern on Tom Hulce’s jacket. I gotta say, the regular Blu-ray shows off the detail of his jacket back much better than the 4K. Maybe my eyes are screwy. But, the biggest disappointment comes when Belushi gives out the Delta pins, along with each pledge’s new fraternity name. Remember the scene? He gets to Hulce, says “Kroger? Your Delta Tau Chi name is…Pinto.” To which, Hulce says “Why ‘Pinto’?” I remember exactly Belushi’s response. Before saying angrily “Why not?!”, there’s a particular sound Bluto makes. You watch that scene and tell me if you think that sound is still there. It’s not. Burp! “Why not?!” I just think that’s terrible. It’s like Spielberg digitally replacing guns in E.T. Or Lucas completely removing the absurd Ewok song in Return of the Jedi. It’s just wrong. Universal? I want that BURP put back! I’ll wait for my replacement copy. Until then, I’m sticking to the 1080p Blu-ray, with better detail, and burping intact.

John Landis' ultimate comedy given the ultimate treatment

5

John Landis' 1978 comedy masterpiece, National Lampoon's Animal House - written by Harold Ramis, Douglas Kenney and Chris Miller and based on their own personal experiences - has exploded in style onto 4K UHD with more style than Bluto's mashed-potato-filled cheeks. Beautifully presented with accompanying art cards, 'yearbook', replica poster and some new features as well as a beautiful steelbook case, it looks and sounds better than ever - having owned this title on various formats over the years (it's my all-time favourite comedy) , it's hard to believe that this could ever be bettered. I rarely pre-order titles, but this was a must-have, and Zavvi didn't let me down, delivering a full three days before the official release date!
