Fangs For The Memories

Mr Pug, Zavvi
11 December 2012
  • Summary: Bram Stoker's Dracula is a vast improvement on the original, with better definition and sharper imagery. It does fall short in dark scenes which unfortunately is most of the film. Also, the optical effects look very flat and some scenes are murky too. But nonetheless, it's the best its looked so far on Blu-ray.

Good adaptation

  • Conclusion: Never really received the success that it perhaps deserves. Certainly one of the nearest film adaptations of the original novel. Gary Oldman is excellent in the lead role and gives rise to the fact that he is probably one of the greatest actors alive today, frequently unrecognisable in his films. Good performances from supporting cast with perhaps the exception of Keanu Reeves and his attempts at an English accent.

Not bad!

Matts4it, play.com
18 September 2007
  • Conclusion: I think the poor reviews on here are a bit unfair. At best this is an average bluray transfer. The transfer could have been better. Im not sure if this is down to the age of the film, or how it was shot. Or wheather it was down to a poor transfer. The film was a bit grainy. From what i can remember of the dvd version. The Bluray is still much better! The colours are much richer. The blacks are more vivid. The sound seems better.

Great Film Poor Transfer

Pimboli, play.com
18 September 2007
  • Conclusion: I love this film but this transfer just looks like an upscaled DVD and thats being generous. Considering Coppola actually oversaw this transfer himself Im staggered by how soft the picture is, there is no dept or 3D like feel to it which is what HD is all about. Id steer clear of this release until they do it again unless you are a die hard fan.

Transfer is as it is meant to be

Harikeo, play.com
18 September 2007
  • Conclusion: To all those slating this Bluray because it 'looks bad' or is 'not a good bluray' this is how FFC wanted the film to look.. FFC has said he was hoping to achieve a "classic film" feel which is why it looks grainy in parts. The film is an artistic film with experimental compositions and "old school" techniques so the Bluray is just as it should be.

BEST DRACULA!!!

SQUIDWURT, play.com
18 September 2007
  • Conclusion: This is without a doubt the best told Dracula story - the Blu Ray is very good, does have some grain but is still far superior to the DVD version & is a must BUY!!! The sound was a bit quiet on my system, but thats easily solved just crank it up!

Fantastic version of the Classic story - SUPERB quality film

Hansam5, play.com
18 September 2007
  • Conclusion: Don't know where all the bad reviews are coming from ?? I found the picture quality and sound superb. The whole "Blu-ray" transfer gives the film just a little bit more edge than it ever had before. Having viewed this film many times before in the original format, I know the "story" off by heart. It is a horror film, inter-woven with love, both bound together by the pure genius of Francis Ford Coppola.
