Balls of Fury (HD-DVD)

Balls of Fury

On DVD: 
Tuesday, December 18, 2007
Running Time: 
1 Hour 30 Minutes

This wannabe Dodgeball never quite hits the mark despite it’s few comical moments.  The majority of the movie is a joke of a joke and never fleshes out to what it could have given a proper cast, writers and director.

Crisp and fully high definitionm Balls of Fury is the first combo disc I have seen that didn’t have a decrease in technology because of the combo-format.  The picture is clear and the sound is lossless, even if there isn’t really any point in the film where lossless sound is needed.

High definition deleted scenes (impressive in quality, not content), a high definition alternate ending, high definition making-of featurette and another non-HD featurette round-out an impressive array of bonus features that are almost all presented in 1080i.  Although all high-def bonus features have been seen strongly on Blu-Ray, this is the first time I have seen it so heavily on the HD-DVD format.
