    Yes, very disappointing. Funny how Digital Bits' review is the complete opposite. Oh well. I will find out for myself next week.

    Also, can someone please do a comparison between R1 and R0?

    Yes it is very funny how different reviewers see completely different things.

    I am hoping that DVDFile is wrong.

    Wonder if the reviewer has disabled SVM on his TV.

    Hey, wait, the link to Dan's bio is wrong. If it was Dan that reviewed it, then he's got a very nice projection system.

    I don't see what the fuss is about. The only negative mentioned was some video ringing in brightly lit scenes. The review said that the colors and skintones were excellent, brightness and contrast had great dynamic range, good shadow detail, etc, etc. Plus there are plenty of other very positive reviews out there. This is hardly a Reservoir Dogs Special Edition: Part Deux.

    Well, I've read positive reviews of the video on both IGN and The Digital Bits. Though really, DVDFile's review isn't exactly lambasting the video; it says it's "respectable". But I haven't seen those specific problems reported anywhere else.

    BLAH! The guy doesn't know what he's talking about. Pulp Fiction was shot with a 'soft' filter lens and is SUPPOSED to look washed out, blurry and lack detail.
    Edge enhancement on the other hand... we'll see.

    I will have our official review up later
    this evening.
    I can tell you this. Pulp Fiction
    looks damn good. The transfer is outstanding.
    I saw no grain. I saw no video noise. Just
    a pleasingly clean transfer.
    Any softness or occasional blur is due to the
    manner in which the movie was filmed.
    Watch for my review tonight as I am still working
    on the supplements.

    I wouldn't worry too much about the DVD File review. I'll echo "Captain" Ron's assessment that this new Pulp Fiction DVD looks great.

    I'd also love to see a comparison vs. the Korean disc which is a knockout transfer.

    I too am curious as to how the new disc's transfer holds up against the Korean one.
    Amazement was what I felt when I first popped in the Korean disc. Great transfer [​IMG]
