I've got to watch that, what time?
I've got the disc, but I'm interested to see the quality.
Will it be 5.1, I hope so.

no problem:) It should be a good transfer, so that coupled with the superior bitrate of BBCHD should, I hope, make for some great quality pq tonight!

As posted on Digispy!!:D

Looking forward to watching tonight's movie on my Panny AE900. I saw "Enemy of the State" a few years ago on DVD and just remember it being an interesting update of Coppola's "The Conversation" from the Seventies. It even has the star of that film in it too, i.e. Gene Hackman.

I agree, picture quality is great. It's also being shown in its correct aspect ratio of 2.35:1 on BBCHD. On BBC1 its cropped.

So record it and watch it when you can crank the sound up - that's what Sky+ functionality is for!!

Took up 13% and it shows, looks absolutely stunning. If only the movie channels we pay for looked that good!

Yeh, it took up over 17Gb on my hard drive!!:eek: Definately the largest 2 hour recording to date, but worth it. The movie was pretty good although essentially it was just one big chase movie wasn't it? I liked the links to the original film "The Conversation". Hackman's place was the same as from that movie and the surveilance scene in the park/square was shot almost scene for scene as part of the original.

Started to watch it but the BBCHD logo ruined the enjoyment ..
Yes. They could easily have positioned it so it was entirely in the black border - though that might be even more distracting.

There wasn't a logo on the BBC1 showing of the film, so why on HD?

was this a true HD movie (ie not scaled) then if there was no 5.1 sound track?
Anyone know for sure it was filmed with HD cameras.

Film is far higher quality than even HD, it would have to be, to be shown on a screen the size they are in cinemas.

otherwise the pixels would be the size of footballs.

so it was scaled, yes. But it would be in effect scaled down.

Hope not, much rather it was filmed with er...film.

Was it me or did the image looked slight squashed vertically althoug the video aspect ratio still looked correct (2.35:1).

What was the BBC's involvement with the production of the film?
I thought they were only showcasing BBC produces (or co produced) stuff.

It was excellent quality considering it was made six years ago. Good transfer.

Somehow though my SkyHD missed the last five minutes due to me being on live pause.. just as they were about to storm the Restaurant.. Luckily BBC1 had the news interruption and I could watch it on that...

..and to make the evening better I saw Sky showing By Dawns Early Light.. thats a film Ive wanted to see again for YEARS...
