4.0 out of 5 stars Artificial Intelligence - Real Emotion
By sixthreezy on January 27, 2019
I've been putting off watching this film again after repurchasing on Blu-ray awhile back. Last time it was viewed I definitely added some appreciation to the overall feeling for this movie, but I couldn't remember why I had no desire to watch it again. I couldn't hardly remember how the story went, but could only remember pieces of the ending. I now remember why I may have omitted the film's overall presence from my memory, and it's because it's super depressing.

This is a beautiful film, without a doubt and it can't be stated enough how good of a film it is. One wonders what could have been if Stanley Kubrick had made the film himself, or been around to oversee more of the movie in its release. It's an amazing tale that serves as a futuristic fairy tale, but also examines so many heavy and relevant topics of existence. Considering the film is anchored with a performance from a kid, it's an absolute achievement in so many ways.

The CGI still holds up really well all these years later, but I found the audio to sound a bit canned in this release. I'm not sure if it's the age of the movie or the transfer, but it really was only noticeable in the scenes in the house. The acting is phenomenal with of course the fantastic performance from Haley Joel Osment that grows throughout the film, and Jude Law's perfectly executed gigolo robot that dances like he's in an old musical. Robin Williams turns in a cameo-ish performance and plenty of others pepper this Steven Spielberg gem with tons of acting talent.

The special features were somewhat underwhelming, but considering that this is a DVD-era release it's not surprising. There were a few cool features but the lack of a Play All options made it a little tedious. No director's commentary or any for that matter, which is another disappointment but considering those involved is not surprising.

Overall, this looked great and the scenes in the neon lit cities of the future really stick out, as well as the Flesh Fair. It's a good pickup if you're looking for a great sci-fi film that does more than flash lights and robots at you. This movie is exactly what someone like Spielberg proves you can do with a genre film like this, and that actually makes it important. This will be a classic for years to come, and plays like a PG-13 children's movie fever dream that never lets up until the very peaceful, bittersweet ending.

This release does not include a DVD or digital copy. Case came in great condition.

1.0 out of 5 stars Blu Ray insufficiente
Reviewed in Italy on June 2, 2020
Come da foto che allego, possedevo già una bella edizione slipcase con doppio disco DVD, ma dato che il film mi piace molto e la qualità video non era soddisfacente, ho deciso di fare un upgrade al formato Blu Ray. Ebbene, su un televisore Sony da 40 pollici, non ho rilevato differenze apprezzabili. In sostanza, ho trovato la stessa insopportabile grana della versione precedente, con sostanzialmente gli stessi artefatti digitali della precedente e scarsa masterizzazione in DVD. Pare che abbiano masterizzato un Blu Ray con le immagini di un DVD... Va bene che il Blu Ray l’ho pagato meno di 7 euro, ma anche se mi aspettavo una scarna edizione con la copertina e il disco, pensavo che almeno la qualità delle immagini fosse all’altezza. Spero meglio per il futuro, ma prima di ricomprare questo titolo, mi informerò prima
