I'd like to know if the new NTSC transfer looks better than the current UK PAL Ultimate Edition. Why would anyone buy this DVD if the picture quality was not a clear improvement over the current Ultimate Edition? Guess there's the new commentary.
Do Not Name Retailers that break Street Dates! I was at a Grand Opening of a store looking though the DVD racks and the T2 Extreme Edition was buired there. I though that this wasn't supposed to be out for another few weeks. Haven't watched yet because I just got it today. Does anyone know if it is supposed to be out because I may want to look for a better price
You got it early - street date is June 6 I believe.
So Does This mean I have to be the one to review it?
You can if you wish. I wouldn't mind knowing about the disc. Transfer, how's the commentary, extras, etc.
Yes, you are the guinea pig. You need to go out and get it and tell us how good the commentary is and also report on the quality of the documentaries. Oh, yeah- you have to give us a report on the video transfer.
I would be EXTREMELY interested in the HD version for the computer.
I'll see what I can do, but I'm not very well versed in all the Technical Aspects of Video Quality. I hear E.E. alot about the old disc, but I'm not all that sure what to be looking for on this one. And my computer is not powerful enough to view the Windows Media HD version. Do Not Name Retailers that break Street Dates!
WillG, What kind of TV and DVD player do you have? And, has it been ISF'd and/or calibrated with Avia? No offense - but if you aren't using decent equip. or have proper calibration, you may not even see much of a difference.
I have a 32" Hitachi Ultravision HDTV Monitor. A JVC Progressive Scan DVD Player and a JVC RX-601AV. And I haven't had anything Calibrated so I would proabably wouldn't be the best canditate for a review. I can comment on the Commentary and the Documentary. Hopefully I will get to it before it officially streets
"Do Not Name Retailers that break Street Dates!" Sorry, did not realize I was not supposed to do that.
resolution should be 1920x1080p. That's what I heard. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.
I thought it was 1280x720p.
1440x816p Copied and pasted from another home theatre forum:
I have heard the T2 WM9 version looks better than DVHS! I cannot wait to watch T2 in HD...yeah baby! Someone please send me a PM on where they have seen the DVD and I will post a HD review...my HTPC is hooked up to a 65" ISF calibrated HDTV.
How does the new 480i transfer look??? EE gone, I hope! D
here's a link to a review of the WM9 version. http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...hreadid=262553 in short it sounds like (a) it can be a pain to get it to play at all, (b) it looks better than DVHS T2 but only because DVHS T2 looks like crap compared to the best DVHS transfers.
Ok, I have watched some of this. There is already a thread about the transfer so I won't go into much detail on this. But it is pretty nice looking. I'm about halfway through the film in the "Interactive Mode" which plays with an subtitle info track and has Infinifilm type stops on it as well. The track is pretty detailed. It mostly technical but has story related info and info related to production. It's very informative and contains virtually no gaps. I've had to rewind several times because I could not keep up. The stops are have many details as well, that are related to effects, sound, general production and also shows storyboards of sequences that never got filmed. I'm not sure if all the stops are just recycled from the Ultimate Edition, so some of the stuff may not be anything new to people who really dug through that edition. If you watch the interactive mode, you are going to spend significant time getting through the film. I have not listened to commentary yet. I hope to do so later. I'm sure someone on the other thread said something about it, and suggested that it is screen specific. GOOD NEWS (Easter Egg Spoiler!) And in case you haven't read on this on the other thread yet, the first disc DOES contain the theatical version on the 1st disc!! On the main menu, highlight "Sensory Control" hit the right arrow button on your remote 5 times which will light up "The Future is Not Set" Text, click on it and you will be given a "Play Theatrical Version" Option
