Pride & Prejudice Blu-ray

by ,

I bought the Blu-ray version of the 1995 BBC miniseries “Pride & Prejudice” a little while ago. They did an excellent job of the transfer.

Take a look at Elizabeth Bennet’s first glimpse of Pemberley:

Just to be completely fair, these are not actual Blu-ray stills. Rather, they’re stills from an mkv down-encoding of the Blu-ray. But they’re of sufficient quality as to demonstrate the amazing difference the new transfer makes. All the colours have been corrected. As well, the soundtrack is much clearer – you hear things you never heard on the DVD.

I’d give this Blu-ray a 9/10 — I took one off because the dark scenes were too grainy. But I suspect this to be the fault of the equipment and film that was used during original filming, not of the Blu-ray transfer; you can’t make it better than the original film, after all.
