What he said. I saw this for the first time last year and was blown away. They don't make 'em like this anymore.

I saw the film as a kid when it was released. Years later I read the book. A great read easily recommended even to folks who don't like Tom Wolfe. It was many years later that I finally revisited the movie. The book is obviously more detailed, but both are executed so well that I don't think it matters in what order you approach them.

Slightly off topic, but I think I may revisit From The Earth To The Moon, too.

Excellent (albeit expected) news about The Right Stuff. But yes, From The Earth To The Moon is a great miniseries and long overdue for a blu-ray release from HBO.

Good point & I too am hoping they release a box-set of That exceptional mini-series on Blu' soon. Thing is, as it was released in 1998 (aired on HBO that April/May), it also was shot in 4:3, & though subsequently re-released 1-2 times in "Widescreen", the Original edition, was full frame, 4:3 aspect ratio.

From a reviewer on Amazon:

[Show spoiler]
Quote:
This is a short review to point out the differences between the 2000 4-Disc box set and the 2005 Signature Edition 5-disc box set.

In case you have already got the 2000 DVD set in your collection and are wondering whether to update it to the 2005 edition, here are the differences:

Firstly, there are 5 discs instead of 4, but NO difference in content. No extra scenes, documentaries or commentary. The original DVD-Rom Disc 4 has been re-authored to play on your DVD player in the lounge room. This makes a lot of the content immediately accessible instead of having to search for it on the net, but the interactivity is gone. For me that's small loss as I didn't get much out of the games etc anyway.

Secondly, the entire set has been remastered in DTS and Widescreen (1.85:1). Now this sounds like manna from heaven, but unfortunately only the audio remastering is really worth spending any extra dollars on. The sound is crisp, clear and beautifully mixed and the liftoffs etc come booming out of your home theatre system like you were there at the Cape.

But the widescreen - well, sadly it just doesn't enhance the original viewing experience. It's evident that HBO produced the original series in 1.33:1 for tv and have merely re-jigged and adapted that ratio for the modern proliferation of widescreen plasma television sets. There is no extra data. You will find some scenes are better cut in the frame, but others suffer. For example, in Disc 1, when the Gemini 8/Agena assembly is tumbling around the sky with a stuck thruster, you don't see the thruster in the new widescreen version as it is cut off by the top of the frame. Some captions have also been compromised.

As the series was created for the 1.33:1 ratio, all the crucial information is positioned inside the frame for that ratio anyway. The only advantage of the widescreen ratio is that it now fits your new plasma widescreen without the black bars. Also the video quality is not as crisp as I expected it to be, possibly from the re-sizing process.

Fine, & I Hope that all is true, but if you read the review (1 of MANY available), it did Air in 4:3 & subsequent WS re-releases were obviously Cropped, leading to where some scenes were missing all that was filmed



Not that I'd ever question the great IMDB site

I'm looking forward to this. Believe it or not, this will be a blind buy unless I'm able to watch it prior to the release. I've heard nothing but good things and would definitely consider this a safe one.
