Like it or not, HD is here to stay and it is time I got on the bandwagon, so I present the first ever HD Mondo Esoterica review:
Hardware (1990) is a superb cyberpunk horror film that has the artistically free feel of a short film more than a commercial production. It comes highly recommended and Severin’s release includes a superb selection of bonus features including three short films.
I’ve made a few changes to the reviews page for Blu-ray – click any of the images on the page to get an enlarged view which should fill your monitor and click on the logo in the bottom left to view at full resolution. You can scroll through all the images on the page with the cursors. The images are straight off the disc and uncompressed thus they are very large (up to 1Mb each), so you might have to wait a moment for them to load. (Obviously any feedback on how this looks on different browsers/operating systems would be appreciated).
I will be publishing more HD reviews in the near future, but don’t worry Mondo Esoterica is still all about cult and obscure films and I’m more concerned with tracking down new films than replacing perfectly good DVDs with Blu-ray, so the site will continue to move forward with both SD and HD reviews.
