DVD Review – There Will Be Blood

Written and directed by Paul Thomas Anderson
Movie: 6 stars out of 5. Brilliant
DVD Quality: Flawless
Sound: Be prepared for huge transitions from silence to bursts of sound, but then again, you’ve seen the film, right?
Extras: 50/50.
While it’s no secret that Paul Thomas Anderson’s There Will Be Blood was among my favorite films of 2007 and repeat viewings don’t change that opinion. Paul Thomas Anderson has turned in a wide screen epic masterpiece for the new century. TWBB and Andrew Dominick’s The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford (you just KNEW I was going to work that one in here, didn’t you?) are a magnificent 1-2 punch for 2007 which was overall, one of the strongest years in recent memory, IMHO.
As for the DVD, the transfer is gorgeous. Needless to say, the film is presented in widescreen, enhanced for 16×9 TVs and on my 50″ Sony, it looks gorgeous. The 5.1 sound is great, with Johnny Greenwood’s stark and painfully appropriate score ringing through as clear as a bell.
