Chicken Run: A Brief Look

Andy Hall is going to be reviewing Chicken Run in details soon, but I thought I'd have a quick squiz at the preview disc Pathé have sent out before sending on!

The picture quality is near perfect - I've only briefly looked at it, but colours appeared to be sharp and well defined and I couldn't pick up any compression artifacts etc. The DD5.1 and DTS soundtracks are both excellent - DTS has the edge only very slightly with better definition and just a bit more depth. It's a little more bassy too.

The extras are impressive - I haven't looked at them all and I'll leave that for Andy Hall to do, but I did have a look at the DVD-ROM content after Andy C from the R2 Project raved about it in his review. I have to say I fully agree - the DVD-ROM material here is streets ahead of anything I've seen on DVD before.

I'll certainly be buying myself a copy of this disc as soon as it hits the shelves on 4 December - and I recommend that anyone out there reading this does as well!
