They Live - Exclusive Limited Edition Steelbook

4

Great looking steelbook for a Carpenter cult classic. This film made such an impression on me as a teenager over 25 years ago & it's still such a great unique watch. To get it on Steelbook is a treat. Buy it while it's a bargain price.

They Live on Blu-Ray

5

Great to get this movie on blu-ray finally. Nice well presented steel box, most importantly blu-ray HD conversion is very good for an 80s movie. Sharp picture and great sound. A must for all Carpenter fans worth the price for the quality.

Really nice artwork in keeping with the movie and not just a straight copy of the general bluray cover which I always like. Get it while you can

They Live - Zavvi Exclusive Limited Edition Steelbook (Ultra Limited Print Run) Blu-ray

Almost as good as I remembered years ago. Saw the steelbook so had to pre-order, glad I did. They have done a pretty good job bringing it to HDBR, classic Carpenter. Fair price too...

A decent release of a Carpenter classic

4

Studiocanal's previous Blu-ray of They Live was so bad they never actually released it to the general public. Thankfully this one is a lot better. Unlike the unreleased disc this comes from an proper HD master, as opposed to being an SD up-scale. It's a little rough around the edges - the aspect ratio changes very slightly a few minutes into the film and there are various nicks and scratches here and there - but its's a pretty competent, and above all filmic transfer on the whole. The advertised DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track is not on the disc; instead we get the original 2.0 Stereo audio in English, French and German. While I'm fine with the original audio I'm less impressed that the specs are incorrectly listed on the J-Card... In any case, the audio does the job and is authentic to the theatrical experience (the 5.1 remixes on the other DVDs and Blu-rays aren't that good anyway). A big positive is the inclusion of what looks to be all of the extras found on the US Blu-ray release, which includes a commentary with Carpenter/Piper, interviews with the director and stars, a couple of making of featurettes, and some TV spots and trailers. For those who don't know, the US release from Shout! Factory has terrible contrast/colour boosting, digital noise reduction, and artificial sharpening (why make it blurry only to sharpen it again?). If you like edge enhancement and generally poor looking Blu-rays you'll be okay, but if not this disc is a much better all-round bet. To get super-geeky, this transfer is the same as the Japanese release of the film, which was very similar to the Italian release except for the fact that the distributors decided to crop the top and bottom of the picture slightly. It's not a major disaster, but it is annoying when you consider that the Italian release already showed less picture information than the US disc. Personally I'll sacrifice a little bit of picture info at the top and bottom of the frame for the more natural image on this disc any day of the week. The quality of the Steelbook packaging itself is great, featuring as it does a striking re-working of the old DVD artwork along with quotes from the film and a mono image of Roddy piper inside. This is one of John Carpenter's last great films and the Blu-ray makes for a very worthy addition to your collection. If you're listening Studiocanal, can we please have decent versions of Escape from New York, The Fog and Prince of Darkness next?
