I did a thread search to see if anyone else had commented on this release from Universal. Though I am very excited to hear of each new Universal title that is announced, I hope they take more time with future releases. Some films should not be rushed on to this new format until they are properly remastered and "Army of Darkness" is definitely one of them. Though it is a low budget film and past R1 DVD releases have been downright awful, this isn't a helluva lot better and it makes no sense that they chose to release this dreck on a high definition format. To get into detail about how bad specific scenes look is pointless because the whole over-priced combo disc is an abomination. It will be the first HD DVD I send off to Ebay. Maybe I am too spoiled by the Warner titles, but I don't wanna plunk down nearly 30 bucks for something so substandard. This film needed a full restoration before release on HD DVD, Shame on you Universal.
