Blu-Ray Review: Steven Spielberg’s Spectacular ‘A.I.: Artificial Intelligence’

Chicago – When I was first introduced to the world of Blu-ray, I went through the mental rolodex of films that I knew I would one day want to see in HD. There are obvious choices like “Lord of the Rings” and “The Matrix,” but I actually remember thinking about the controversial final act of “A.I.: Artificial Intelligence” and how incredible it would look in 1080p. Years later, the film has finally been released on the format and while it may not live up to the high expectations, the movie alone makes this a worthwhile purchase.

Blu-Ray Rating: 4.5/5.0

The HD transfer for “A.I.” is good but not great. Clearly, it’s a straight transfer with no significant restoration or remastering. Some of the darker, interior scenes look a bit grainier than I would have expected. The film doesn’t have the visual pop that I remembered, but that could just be a byproduct of memory.

A.I. Artificial Intelligence Blu-ray Release Date Slides Two Months

This afternoon Paramount pushed back the Blu-ray Disc debut of Steven Spielberg's A.I. Artificial Intelligence from February 15 to April 5, a nearly two month slide.

Though no reason was given for the change, it is likely Paramount acted in response to Fox and Warner Bros. both announcing the week of April 5 to release Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 and The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, respectively, on Blu-ray and DVD. A.I. is poised to gain more visibility sitting alongside those powerhouses on the "new releases" rack than hitting stores timed with Valentine's Day.

In case you missed the original announce, A.I. has been remastered for Blu-ray and will include nearly 2 hours of bonus features as detailed below.
