There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I was disappointed to find out that this great old movie had poor Blu Ray rendering on quite a few sections. I would estimate perhaps some 30% of the movie has a grainy fuzziness that took away from the pure visceral enjoyment because the fuzzy scenes would appear in rude contrast to the good stuff. I found the audio far less obvious, and so perhaps 10% of that was mismatched.
For technical comparisons, I watch on higher end audio visual equipment all up to date and capable of superb output. Watching something like the Bourne Trilogy on this setup is just riveting, and while I really like the characters (etc) of the Snowy River movie, I would liken its quality to more like a good DVD.
I am glad I have it, and its not worth the effort to send it back. My true wish is that they will do a better job of the rendering (visually) and I would buy the better copy (and the sequel!). My rating is actually 3.5 stars, but that option doesn't exist here.
Now I can make out the stichting on the bridles and saddles, and the colours of foliage are more vivid then ever, if you like this movie, it is worth the up-grade from DVD to BLU-RAY.

It was fast paced and well filmed, and gave me great pleasure. Our family will watch this on many occasions.
You need to download apps to watch which cost you more money.
Asked for a refund but they said If I pay and send back to USA which would cost more than the DVD.
ended up down loading from Amazon Prime which was cheaper and instant.
Not about the money but not being honest !!!!
This is the story of a boy becoming a man; Jim loses his father in an accident for which he feels guilty. Needing money to keep his place in the mountains he comes down to low country and discovers his future, a girl, a secret that has been kept for 20 years and a horse that unites them. A good story, well told with breathtaking scenery and some of the most fantastic riding on film. Better yet it has some good acting, particularly by Kirk Douglas in two roles, one very much his "type" and one very much not.
