Without a doubt, Serenity; that space battle is just plain effing awesome!

Other excellent choices are Constantine and, if you want to illustrate to your friends the flexibility of the format and still show them a cracking picture, stick Kiss Kiss Bang Bang on.

Haven't seen it on HD-DVD but I bet "THE PERFECT STORM" kicks some butt in the sound and picture department.

I think I read somewhere that it's one of Warners dodgy ones sourced from a 1080i master...

But isn't the movie itself a complete pile of pants? Or are the reviews way off?

what's unforgiven like?
One of the best :D
This title has it all, great story/PQ/AQ. Some of the outside shots are simply stunning.

Just watched Aeon Flux and IMO this is the best HD PQ eye candy so far. The film may not be classic material but it looked stunning on my setup.

Anyone got Phantom of the Opera and can you tell me how it compares to the R3 DTS Edition for both PQ and AQ? Thanks:thumbsup: .
PQ is fab :thumbsup: Audio is as good as the DTS edition but couldn't say better TBH.

Also Swordfish is pretty good and Van Helsing in some scenes is breathtaking in the PQ dept. (no comment on the film intself though :D )
