While the release list for hot new HD DVDs is quickly dwindling, that's not to say that there aren't any titles just hitting the shelves worth picking up. Oscar nominee Michael Clayton is one such film, which has landed on both HD DVD and Blu-ray formats and has been reviewed on both. On the BD side, critics over at Home Theater Mag were quite disappointed by the exclusion of any advanced audio tracks, but did appreciate the "inky blacks" and overall strong HD (read: visual) presentation. Conversely, Home Theater Spot found things to be "too dark" in the HD DVD version, but we're chalking that one up to personal preference. Nevertheless, the red version did no better in terms of audio, but it was noted that this film wasn't one to really take advantage of such luxuries, anyway. Extras were scant on both discs, leaving both reviewers to suggest picking this one up only if you're a fan of the genre, or more specifically, this very title.
