It's a great looking film and consequently a great looking presentation.
Hits demo standards often enough to consider it a winner for this release.
The extras are pretty impressive.
The mystery works reasonably well, although it's frequently brought crashing back down to earth by the more whimsical elements.
It looks gorgeous, as do its cast members.
