"ATTN: THE POOR RATING HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE MOVIE ITSELF. The transfer is HORRIBLE. Really, it's like watching the DVD on a regular projection TV. I own the DVD and can definitively say that there is NO difference between the Blu ray and DVD. That's just terrible and I wish I hadn't spent my money on this release."
