About this deal

Maggie Smith is wonderful, as usual, with her well-focused quips and observations, but her Violet seems a bit mellower than in earlier appearances. Downton Abbey: A New Era is the second big screen film based on the series and, while not quite as entertaining as the first film, it would be fair to say that it will bring a smile and perhaps a tear to devout fans in need of a Downton Abbey fix. Downton Abbey: A New Era in Ultra HD presents extremely well and is the best way to experience the film on home video.

The first is the shooting of the film at Downton and the second is the trip to the South of France and ascertaining answers to the questions raised by the inheritance. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

I found this to be an enjoyable audio presentation that absolutely complimented the source material.

I will forego any details about the subplots as I feel that they are best left to be experienced by those that revel in the effective drama/melodrama, superb interplay and endearing characters of Downton Abbey. Having not seen this film’s theatrical presentation, I can’t be certain but, I believe that what we are seeing is a faithful rendering of the film’s elements. There is a cozy feeling in every frame, and seeing these actors, who for years worked together and obviously still enjoy doing so. The color palette ranges from bright, vivid hues to more subtle pastels, especially prominent in the Southern France sequences in which buttery yellows, soft mochas, creamy whites, and pale greens are dominant. Suddenly awash with the starlets and production people of the roaring 1920s, the huge house has never seen so much action in its existence.Color reproduction is consistent, with primaries like blue, red, and green appearing richer, even a bit more delineated. Come join the discussion about home audio/video, TVs, projectors, screens, receivers, speakers, projects, DIY’s, product reviews, accessories, classifieds, and more! The dowager countess has mysteriously inherited a new property in the South of France which is becoming quite an attraction. Curtis notes that the British Lion film company making its film shows how much teamwork is involved in the filmmaking process. The first two acts drift along, checking thematic boxes that proportionately scale the drama as the events unfold on both fronts.

Spill the Tea (Time) – Laura Carmichael and Allen Leech discuss their favorite castmates and their favorite moments from the film. John Lunn’s music appropriately underscores scenes and is particularly effective as the Crawleys sail across the Channel to France and in a key scene involving Countess Violet. The film within the film that’s being reworked from a silent to a sound picture was based on the Alfred Hitchcock film Blackmail. Blu-ray™ unleashes the power of your HDTV and is the best way to watch movies at home, featuring 6X the picture resolution of DVD, exclusive extras and theater-quality surround sound. Her Majesty's Yacht Britannia (1080p, 2:53): Touring the vessel as seen in the film and exploring its true history.While predictable (as you point out in your review), it was still a fun ride to revisit the large cast of characters one last time (or is it? I was immediately taken with the hybrid of period drama, dry comedy, mystery, and family history of the show and first film. Additionally, there are a host of subplots, predominantly surrounding the household staff but, not limited to them, as Mary, Cora, Violet and members of the film company have bits to play too. My audio/video ratings are based upon a comparative made against other high definition media/blu-ray disc.
