Spielberg classic

5

Close Encounters of the Third Kind is a Spielberg classic from the late 70s. It's been given reverential treatment with this nice little steelbook. Grain lovers will especially like the picture quality, with none of this 'waxy face' nonsense you get with over-DNR releases.

Stunning

Close Encounters of the Third Kind is my all time favourite film. I already own the deluxe North American package but I just had to get the steelbook. Art work is wonderful. I live in Canada and the steelbook arrived in mint condition.

Great treatment for such great title

4

There are a couple editions to choose from for Close Encounters of the Third Kind, but in my opinion, this one is the best if you're a fan of movies in nice packaging (cool artwork with some nice embossing on the title). Avoid if you want yours with a lot of bonus supplements though.

Close Encounters of the Third Kind - Zavvi Exclusive Limited Edition Steelbook (Includes UltraViolet Copy is one of my favourite movies from my favorite director. I just had to get this steelbook version. Everything about it is perfect and the artwork makes a nice companion to my Special Edition Box.

One of the best UFO movies

Now this is the way it should be. With Close Encounters of the Third Kind - Zavvi Exclusive Limited Edition Steelbook (Includes UltraViolet Copy), you get all three cuts, all remastered in DTS MA 5.1 and all have been digitally remastered. Thank you so much Mr. Spielberg because this without a doubt has to be one of your best. The film has been remastered and I believe it. While I had not seen the film in many years and do not own the Standard Def DVD and, thus, have nothing to compare it with, all I can say is that the video transfer looks beautiful in all ways. The colours are just gorgeous with the daylight sky shots a rich and smooth blue. The blacks are as true to black as I have seen in the past with great details easily showing in these dark and shadowy areas. At no point in watching the Director's Cut did I see any artifacting nor stair-stepping which would have been prominent is many of the wide angle landscape shots. The video transfer absolutely deserves the 5 stars I gave it. I watched it in the lossless DTS MA HD 5.1 and the balance of audio levels between the dialogue and John Williams music score was exceptionally good. The music score is spread quite nicely across the front stage with stereo imaging of the instruments nicely placed. During the first half of the movie I was a touch disappointed that the rear channels were not used that often for front to rear pans or foley FX. However, the second half of the film wakes things up with several uses for the rear channels and discreet channeling of the audio fx to both left and right. It is here where your LFE sub channel will come alive and if you have a good sub and it is set properly, it will certainly get a musical workout. I rate the overall audio with 4 stars. All in all, this is a classic film with brilliant work by Richard Dreyfus, a superior actor, and a great transfer on Blu-ray. I would encourage you to purchase it. I do hope that this review has been of some help to you in deciding upon your purchase or not.
