*****LOVE NEVER DIES*****

  • Summary: This is my personal favorite movie of Gary's. He has a command of the human language's dialects. She should have stayed with Dracula, in this flick. He brought her back, and then she stuck in to him. He really get's into his roles. He is the best Dracula, in my humble opinion..........Thanks all.

Not bad!

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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!

Transfer is as it is meant to be

  • 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.

Do Not Buy - You'll Be Disappointed!

  • Conclusion: I bought this last year thinking its a bargain but the picture is dire. Grainy, blocky and out of focus, this looks like a poor DVD up conversion. The film itself is brilliant but deserves better treatment than this!! F.F.C. take note. Avoid Escape From New York too, great film, dire transfer.

Almost a modern classic on an excellent Blu-ray Disc

  • Conclusion: Bram Stoker's Dracula admittedly has its faults (Keanu Reaves, Wynona Ryder, an excess of focus on love, etc.) but there is some incredible grim and epic imagery juxtaposed with an unusually paced narrative that conjures up a striking supernatural atmosphere oozing from almost every scene.

Love the movie, BD quality is appalling

StormVideo, play.com
23 November 2004
  • Conclusion: The only reason it's gets three stars is because of the movie. Sure, it's not much of a movie and more like an fantastic rock/pop video. But it "looks" great and is great to watch Hopkins and co. having a ham of a good time. But the quality of this blu-ray release is shameful. Picture quality is so bad that I could never watch it again. Appalling.
