this Blu-ray Disc a Top Buy


“3:10 to Yuma” is a suspenseful western starring Glenn Ford and Van Heflin. It’s a psychological thriller with timing and pacing similar to “High Noon” because of the race against the clock.

The Criterion Collection’s “3:10 to Yuma” Blu-Ray disc makes this movie even more enjoyable because of its stunning picture quality and fascinating bonus interviews.

Amazing Picture Quality Will Add to Your Viewing Enjoyment
I like watching old westerns, especially ones made in Black & White. Sometimes, however, you know that the movie is old because portions of the movie are scratchy or grainy. I still enjoy watching these westerns, but I didn’t realize how much the quality of the picture on the screen could affect my enjoyment until I watched The Criterion Collection’s release of “3:10 to Yuma.”

To say that the picture quality was outstanding would be an understatement. It was amazing!

4K Film Restoration That’s Even Noticeable on a Standard HD Television
I don’t have a fancy 4K television, but I do have a large screen HD (high-definition) TV and Blu-Ray player. Watching this movie on my large screen felt like I was watching a modern western that was shot in Black & White.

“3:10 to Yuma” was made over 50 years ago, but this Blu-Ray disc makes it look like it was just filmed in 2015.

The Criterion Collection prides itself on the cinematic quality of their movie DVDs and it definitely shows on this Blu-Ray disc. They have completely restored the original “3:10 to Yuma” movie to 4K-level excellence, thus making it compatible with new 4K televisions. However, you don’t need to have a 4K television in order to enjoy the impressive picture quality.

Fascinating Interviews With the Author and Glenn Ford’s Son
Also on The Criterion Collection Blu-Ray disc are two fascinating interviews. The first interview is with Elmore Leonard, the author of the “3:10 to Yuma” story that was the inspiration for the film. He shares colorful and frank opinions about the movie and other western-related topics.

The second interview is with Glenn Ford’s only son Peter Ford. Peter Ford talks about what it was like to be Glenn Ford’s son and shares some very personal family stories.
