    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Driving Miss Daisy -- in Blu-ray

    what an amazing looking film. i can't recall seeing such a style before, but it suits the period of the story perfectly. it's a work of art - it's like watching a painting come to life. display (Panasonic TX-P65VT50B). the only negative would be a slight instability to the image as blu-ray.com...

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Breakfast at Tiffany's -- in Blu-ray

    i don't know how anyone could find any problems with this video on this release. it's FANTASTIC !!!! easily one of the finer catalog titles out there. fine film grain, lots of detail, no sharpening. why, it's almost as if someone was running film through my projector. much as i generally loath...

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Days of Heaven -- in Blu-ray

    had the same experience. projected 110". turned it off after 30 minutes. so many forcefields, eyes hurting. had the cinematography not been so full of optimal edge enhancement moments, it might have fared better. To whoever was responsible for this transfer - rubbish work. cheers ! on the...

    A Few Thoughts About....Blu-ray/DVD FLIPPER DISCS

    what is this obsession with flippers that Universal seems to have ? they were the only ones left doing them back in HD-DVD, now they're the only ones doing them in BLU-RAY. if the other studios are adopting the separate dvd/blu model, and it must be working for them ... why doesn't this work for...

    very true. even more curious that they released that first edition looking the way it did. the mouse moves in mysterious ways !

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Gangs of New York -- in Blu-ray

    i just did a crazy thing ... i actually asked them [disney] about this. and they said ... "The Re-release of the Gangs of New York Blu-ray has been re-mastered to improve the video quality. The tentative release date for this title is February 2, 2010." not conclusive, but it's another straw...

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ It's a Wonderful Life -- in Blu-ray

    sounds like the region A is a walk in the park compared to the region B. region B seems to have similar problems with grain plus some of the weirdest compression artifacts i've ever seen - not surprising since universal squashed 2 versions on one disk. thanks for that guys. saving a bit of...

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Nixon -- in Blu-ray

    either my eyes are deceiving me, or i'm seeing some quite aggressive edge enhancement in places on this disc. it seems every time nixon is wearing a dark suit and stands up against a light background [medium shots mostly], we've got the force field thing going on. am i imagining this ? stands...

    Bummer-Bourne Ultimatum HDDVD freezing

    try initialising your player. hd-a1 has this option, a3 may also. this worked for me. just clearing p/memory on it's own didn't clear the problem. bloody combos. get rid of them universal.

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Elizabeth -- in HD

    i watched this on a similiar set-up and had the opposite experience. EE and detail levels falling in places. upgrading to a JVC RS1 proj in a few days. will be interesting to see how much of a difference that makes.

    HTF HD-DVD Review: Meet Joe Black

    it was a sweet and sour experience for me. the cinematography ... ding! ding! ding!, very nice thank you. now i don't know whether it's because i was watching on a 720 projector and it was exagerating the EE, but it was a little over my comfort level. and some details in the background got a...

    Woo Hoo! The Crow and Gangs of NY announced for BD in the UK...!

    i can confirm that it gangs is locked to region b. my US PS3 rejects the disk. no message, just goes back to the PS3 menu. must assume this is how it handles region issues. i haven't opened the crow, but what's the point. i know it's region b as well. excellent work EIV. really understanding...

    Official HTF HD-DVD review: What Dreams May Come

    thanks Sam. i think the reviewer on dvdtalk also picked up on the edge enhancement. what a shocker - ee on a universal catalog title - seriously, who are these people that sharpen up 1080 video ? i really want to know what goes on inside their head. they are quite weird.

    Official HTF HD-DVD review: What Dreams May Come

    have to call you on that one. there was ee. definitely. for the most part it was not evident (or not too distracting), but a few select scenes is was extremely there - one in particular (and don't want to give too much away) - in a wide shot where robin williams character is standing next to his...

    Woo Hoo! The Crow and Gangs of NY announced for BD in the UK...!

    Jari - do you have an email address for EIV ? they don't seem to have a website. i've learnt the hard way; ordered this blu-ray a while back, and have just found out it's region B; but too late; it's shipped. i'd just like to know why EIV made such a bone headed decision. on new releases i...

    Warner Amadeus, One Flew, 2008 Non-THD

    or maybe they're just waiting till after Q4 to see if there are still 2 formats around :) still, THD seems a completely insane idea on paper. i think format war neutrality would be better acquired with dual format players. THD just doesn't seem very practicle and might end up being a bit of...

    Blu-ray Review HTF BLU-RAY REVIEW: The Untouchables

    has anyone seen this on a bigger display (i.e. 60+ or front projection) ? if so, what's the ee like ? i'm sure it's not as annoying on a 40" display, but the bigger you go, the more you notice the flaws. god bless 'em. having been recently subjected to some of universals HD-DVDs from their...

    Blu-ray Review HTF BLU-RAY REVIEW: SEVEN YEARS IN TIBET - HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION

    720p Hitachi tx200, 100", HDMI. to be fair, i've only noticed this ringing in a small number of shots, and it's strange that it's there. or is it ? am i going mad ? i think around 2.07.12 when heinrich is wearing his hat, there seems to be a halo around the upper half of his body. and during...

    Blu-ray Review HTF BLU-RAY REVIEW: SEVEN YEARS IN TIBET - HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION

    Sony's Summer slate unveiled

    i'm dumping on universal only now because franky, some of their recent catalog titles are not up to scratch. at the moment, based on the titles i've seen from sony, i don't have any complaints. if they [sony] start releasing lower quality catalog titles, then i'll complain about them.

    Sony's Summer slate unveiled

    spoken by someone who has seen many fine universal titles ... but who has also seen many titles that are not fine and that needed a bit more TLC before they got released. just saw frightners .. not bad, but certainly not as good as it could have been (excessive EE, poor background definition ...

    Sony's Summer slate unveiled

    i hope sony have got something else up their sleeve. frankly, the HD-DVD schedule is looking pretty sweet in comparison. too bad most of those exclusive titles are from universal ... who just seem to be dumping out these catalog titles with little regard to whether they are good enough...

    Purple Rain and Out for Justice coming to both formats on July 24th from Warner

    out of all their back catalog titles, we get ... sigh ... another Steven Segal title ? are they playing with us ? where's the good stuff ... where's all the titles they announced all those many, many months ago ? shawshank, twister, green mile etc. realise they just released matrix, but let's...
