Roadracers - Buy from Amazon: DVD or Blu-ray
This is just a quick update to a previous review
. When the DVD came out, I really liked the movie. Sure, it perhaps had more style than substance, but the style added to the film rather than distracted from the film. So how is the Blu-ray? It's good, but not great. It only has the same extras as before (audio commentary track and a ten-minute film school) so there are no exclusives. That said, this is better than a lot of similar releases; it is a low-budget TV movie, after all. The video and audio quality is solid, but unspectacular. The level of detail is good, again considering it is a low-budget TV movie. The colors are solid, for the most part, with only occasional issues. The blacks are deep, without swallowing details too much. Finally, I didn't notice any compression issues or digital manipulation. The audio has more activity than I was expecting with plenty of sound effects from the rear speakers, although sometimes the dialogue has to fight to be heard over the music. That said, the Blu-ray costs just $7.99 compared to $6.49 for the DVD and it is clearly the better deal.
