Movie Reviews

Hendrix Blu-ray Screen Concerns
DVD King | So Cal | 12/11/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"For those of you concerned about the HD picture not being widescreen, please note that the film was originally shot with the full intentions to be televised so it was framed essentially 4:3 (unfortunately there is no more to this picture then what you see). While 99% of most HD content will be 16:9 widescreen or wider, it is absolutely not essential that HD must be widescreen - nor is it a law or another other type of sac religious excuse someone wants to come up with. If the picture was to be made into 16:9, it would have needed to be zoomed-into or cropped on the top and bottom and then you would have complained about how could anyone crop Jimi Hendrix. This film was transferred into the highest possible definition available utilizing the full aspect of the screen that it was originally shot in. Be thankful that a film this old was remotely preserved over 40 years to be able to be transferred to HD and quite frankly, look this amazing. If you want to see this full-screen on your widescreen monitor, then as another reviewer said he did, just zoom in, but most people don't want to see Jimi looking 40 pounds over weight or his head, or worst yet guitar, cropped off."
Best Jimi DVD

"First although this is BR, there is only so much that can be done with the poor video quality from the sixties. That said this is the best concert footage I've seen of Jimi. I have this on regular DVD as well as BR. Get the BR!
If you're too young to remember the Hendrix sensation, get this DVD and you will understand! Absolutely awesome!"
Best version of monterey
Rodolfo Cruz | Los Angeles, CA USA | 10/11/2009

"i have the criterion dvd and this blu-ray isnt much different in the video department. audiowise they are both very sweet and hard to choose... but this version has the extra footage as a bonus special featute.. it was fun seeing the show again froma different viewpoint.

the concert is edited slightly different and is mostly the same but i found it refreshing. also included is all the avialble footage of purple haze. can you see me is still missing.

menus are very cool with jimis burning guitar. on criterion you have to switch between otis and hendrix and the menu looks like recycled tree paper. you also have to but the 3 disc version to get some monterey history.. this blu-ray has a small doc on monterey if your interested then you can get criterion version of that."
