    Not much of an effort at 87 minutes.

    The only things about Ultra Violent that wowed me were the aliasing on some animation, the apparent digital sharpening on many film shots, and the utter horendousness of the film as a wanna-be work of art...or did I mean fart??? Not impressed! ....in any good ways, of course.

    "Wowed" by aliasing??? Is that a "good thing"?
    By; "apparent digital sharpening", are you referring to EE?
    From the first posts on this thread, I was lead to believe this might be Blu's finest hour (well, 87 minutes anyway).

    What, no Blu-ray DC cut at 94 minutes? I sure enjoyed the SD-DVD DC of this film though. Fun, sexy, sleek sci-fi.

    Yeah, not a good movie. Wish fall would get here.

    Not a good season for new releases anyway.

    EE = halos caused by digital sharpening. Aliasing is bad unless one is a con artist, eh! Some of the animation has some ghastly aliasing. Some snipets look like leftovers from the 90's. Some of it looks familar! I collected computer animation on LD's back in the 90's.

    The film does have good colour and some good looking scenes, but I doubt there's a whole hour of actual good looking footage in this short, patchwork, film.

    When I was reading the cover in Circuit City and it said "blood war", I knew I shouldn't buy it. ....but, I did, my bad!!!

    Any posts of double dip will most likily be deleted, so careful people!
    I mentioned a film w/o:
    DC
    SF
    Advanced video codec
    Lossless audio

    Would seem likely for DD. Post was deleted.

    So saying a title just w/o an extended cut, I'm sure will be considered "off topic"!
    Just a warning.

    I would really like to hear more about PQ.
    Anyone else wish to post on their video or sound findings?
    Thanks.

    So your saying, IYO, this title has added EE to the transfer?
    I can't tell if your just disgusted by the transfer or movie or both?!?!?!
    Thanks.

    This movie is way soft and is just one of the most horrible things I have ever watched. You could grate this dvd and put it on top of your pasta

    with that many bad BD titles, is it possible that the problem lies with the player? Just curious.
