Movie Reviews

Poor quality video
L'Expert (only in my mind) | Somewhere, Somehow, Sometime | 01/04/2009
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I received America the Beautiful Blu-ray from Amazon last week and am very disappointed in the video quality. (Note that I have a high quality front projection and high end audio setup and can reliably judge playback quality.) Several of the clips have what seems to be misconvergence, mainly blue outlines on straight lines - reminds me of misconverged CRT TVs. Some of the video is no better than standard definition. The audio quality is much better, but the poor video quality spoils the overall presentation. The subject matter is OK, but I find the video overlay of Ray Charles on top of scenery to be downright distracting. It should have been either/or with cross fades.

Bottom line - should have saved my money."
4th of July Must Have
Jonathan | New York, NY | 12/12/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This begins with Ray Charles' rendition of America The Beautiful with beautiful scenes of America (purple mountains majesty, fruited plains, and all). The soundtrack is a mix of music ranging from ragtime, jazz, banjo, etc. - with songs including: Star Spangled Banner, Amazing Grace, Wall Street Rag, etc. America The Beautiful will leave you feeling patriotic and is a perfect addition to 4th of July festivities."
Beautiful!

"I'm a HUGE fan of blu-ray and this is a great DVD I've added to my collection. The sound and quality was amazing, and it was very patriotic. I loved it, and if you like Ray Charles this DVD is something great to have."
