Spiderman 3 is worth considering. Pin-sharp in places.
Galapagos looks lovely - but then again I'd expect it to.
I'm looking forward to the release of some real classics though to see them in something akin to their original 35mm glory.
Should get my disc of A Clockwork Orange this week or next - that will be a good test.
Spiderman 3 looks pretty good to me very impressive.
i thought hellboy looked pretty rubbish to be honest IMO.
apocalypto all the way for me
(also, when i was in canada a couple months back, i got the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie on blu ray - its only came out on SD DVD on 22/10 over here - and that looked very, very awesome.)
I watched Mad Max 2 yesterday and was amazed that the film was as good as i remember it from the early nineties when i last watched it on vhs.
It's an incredible film, the picture is a little grainy in places but stunning in others i would recommend it to anybody.
Picture quality wise the best Blu Ray i own is Fifth Element Remaster it's simply astounding, i was blown away by the R1 release on standard dvd many moons ago but this
well i thought fifth element was pretty average....then a week ago i found that they were doing a new remastered version and were swaping for free! i emailed them but didnt expect anything as it was the american release but yesterday i was surprised to find it in the post FREE! i have to say that this new version is the best blu-ray i've seen! watched all 3 spider-mans yesterday & think SP3 comes a close second.
but apart from SP3 i'm a bit disappointed about the lack of extras on all the discs i own.
I agree Spiderman 3 has sold me on blu ray pictures
I was thinking of getting The Fifth Element, what is there on the packaging to let you know its the new version? dont want the old one by mistake.
I think Click may have the worst picture it is hardly any different to a standard DVD, which is a shame as its actually a charming film with a great message in its ending Its on sky anytime in HD this week, I have just watched it again. So save your money and see it on there, again it may be the print because to me it looks too much like standard definition.
Lastly I think Sunshine may well be a new high in the picture stakes when it comes out this Monday on region B
I've just purchased two BD's which are region A and they won't play on my UK PS3.
What can I do (other than bin them)?
Any plans for some decent films to be converted to blu ray like Bladerunner, Aliens, Pulp Fiction, Apocalypse Now, True Romance?
Just got Blackhawk Down in the post yesterday, so this will be tomorrow's viewing. Just watched a couple of mins and pic and sound quality are spot on so far.
Sell them on the forums here. I'm sure you will get a good price and lots of interest.
After waiting for my HDMI cable to be delivered, I finally got to watch 300 last night. What can I say, I thought the picture was stunning. I did notice the grain in places tho.
the new one has "experience high definition" on the front with silver background (old has grey) also new is region a,b & c (old a) has dolby truehd sound and has a full hd 1080 logo on the back.
Blade Runner is out in December.
i know i mentioned before that i thought Apocalypto was a great example of blu-ray and hi-def..
but for anyone that hasnt seen spiderman 3 (saw it alst night)..it is freakin IMMENSE!!!
me and the missus have this penciled in for this saturday night rental
fuzzybee - how did you find it? i managed to stop myself from re-renting it from Blockbuster yesterday..
have had to make-do with die hard 4.0 instead
Ghost Rider was great. Theres a part near the start when shes standing by a tree and its raining. The camera zooms in and its crystal clear.
there were a few shots of the moon tha werent to great, there were hints of green in the blacks. i agree the rest of the film was pretty spot on though
my planet earth has finally arrived from amazon and cant wait to watch it. The only problem is it might be the weekend before I get chance Dont know whether to watch in order or go straight for the wow factor, which ever that might be
Watched Cars last night and was blown away at how 3D the image looked, the cars looked like real plastic models in places rather than animated graphics. This maybe a kids movie but well worth it as a demo disc
Where are people getting their blu ray discs from?
i.e. which shop is cheapest?
There is no one shop, I have gathered my collection from numberous places...
Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.com
Ratatouille is very good!
To show off HD ,animations rules - Open Season looks fabulous at 1080p
Any chance of the Toy Story movies coming to Blu.
Best examples , well I tend to use other peoples recomendations from here http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=858316 and I have built up a fair few of my collection from Tier 0 and Tier 1 from there.
Completely flawless picture. No artifacts whatsoever, no matter how small. Demo Material - These show just what Blu-Ray is all about and everyone should own one to show any guests in their home.
Demo Material, but minor artifacting may be present which the untrained eye may not necessarily spot. Little if any visible compression. Sharp image that has a lot of HD-POP effects. If you are thinking about buying a movie in this tier don't hesitate.
My recent purchases are ...
2001 A Space Odyssey
Thanx for the info contained in this thread guys
3:10 to Yuma is pretty awesome,especially the sound!
I thought Deja Vu was pretty good some scenes looked amazingly clear.
Haven't watched many discs so far, but my impressions so far:
Die Hard 4 - stunning, crystal clear PQ. It was the night scenes that did it for me, so much better than standard DVD
Casino Royale - have only watched the first 40 or so minutes, but wasn't blown away to be honest, but it looked good
The Host - didn't look massively better than DVD
Blade Runner - looked OK, but then maybe the widescreen effect detracted from the PQ. Still, I was expecting more somehow
A Scanner Darkly - looked amazing, but then it looked amazing on DVD
POTC: AWE: looked pin sharp, very impressed.
I've only got a 'small' telly (see sig), so I know this isn't ideal for taking advantage of Blu Ray
I watched Kingdom of Heaven last night, and although its a MPEG-2, the PQ is fantastic, top notch.
Only film I've seen that looks better on Blu so far is Casino Royal.
I need to get the planet earth set, thats supposed to be the best of the best.
