First dual-layer Blu-ray movie clicks

First dual-layer Blu-ray movie clicks

We just received the Blu-ray version of the Adam Sandler, Sony Pictures movie Click, which is the first Blu-ray movie to actually take advantage of the full storage capacity of the format. Yes, this is the first movie to be released on a dual-layer 50GB Blu-ray disc, also known as the BD-50. So what's the verdict?

Well, using our Samsung BD-P1000 Blu-ray review unit, we watched the first 15 minutes of the film on a couple of different 1080p-capable LCD TVs, and the long and short of it is Click looks better than most Blu-ray movies currently on the market. Twice as good, no, but it's a welcome improvement, and it's good to finally see that the extra featurettes were actually shot in high-def video. (The movie itself was also shot in high-def video and this is a MPEG-2 transfer for those interested in video-compression formats.)

High-def Digest has posted a full review of the disc, but suffice it to say, before you start loading up on Blu-ray discs (come on, you know you're champing at the bit), it's probably a good idea to hold out for some BD-50 action.
