To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I am a huge fan of Wes Anderson and film and general, Criterion has always been an interest of mine. I finally got my first one which was The Grand Budapest Hotel and it was worth it! If you love these movies or collect DVDs this is one you definitely need.
This is without a doubt my favorite Wes Anderson film. I already had the Fox blu-ray from 2014, but when I saw Criterion was releasing it I got very excited. I was hoping for an improvement in terms of image quality but unfortunately it's about the same as the Fox blu-ray. The bitrate is higher on the Criterion version however to my eyes both look basically identical. It still looks great, but it's clearly the same transfer. There are plenty of special features. I haven't watched them all yet, but the ones I saw were quite interesting.
Overall I would only recommend the Criterion version if you already love the film and want to see the special features. If you only care about the film, save your money and get the Fox blu-ray.
