|Geneon's release of Koki Mitani's comedic,
and cameo filled (with everyone from Hiroyuki
Sanada to Megaguirus showing up at one point),
movie is a fairly exceptional DVD from the firm.
The video, and especially the audio, are both
well presented on this disc, and while it falls
very short in the extra department, the other
areas "break the fall" pretty well
to make this a fairly nice release.
|While there are some minor problems inherit
with the video presentation here, it's overall
a fairly commendable job. The video looks sharp
here, while the source used for the transfer contains
no scratches, although there is a noticeable layer
of grain throughout. The colors on this release,
while slightly tinted yellow, are also nice, giving
a rich array, although there are signs of the
saturation being tampered with to achieve this,
particularly with how some clouds tend to be overly
bright. The positives far outweigh the negatives,
though, and this is quite a nice presentation
of the movie in the end.
All About Our House is presented in
its original aspect ratio of 1.85:1, and is Anamorphic
for widescreen TVs.
|There are two audio tracks found on this DVD,
both present in 5.1 surround sound and one of them
boasting DTS support. The speaker distinction is
superb, although the movie isn't the best to make
use of this, while there are no audio inconsistencies
to speak of. Overall, the sound quality is fantastic,
and the inclusion of both a standard and DTS track
here is an excellent move to keep both "casual"
and audiophiles satisfied.
The audio can be accompanied with, removable,
|Sadly, there isn't much on this disc when
it comes to supplemental material. There are five
trailers included, though, each for a Toho film
and two for All About Our House. The quality
on these is fairly decent, and include removable
subtitles, although the video tracks are not anamorphic.
line, the lack of extras is disappointing, but
those just wishing to see Mitani's film should
be thrilled with the video and audio quality found
on this release. Sadly, the disc itself comes
with a very hefty price tag of around $25-30 dollars,
and people interested in purchasing the DVD are
much better off acquiring the disc through the
Toho Live Action Films set, which retails
for only $10 more dollars and contains three
