Initial D: Megastar Blu-Ray vs R0HK Megastar

Unread postby tom2681 » 26 Apr 2008, 22:20

Sorry if the caps look a bit random.
Seeking isn't easy with Blu-Ray. :oops:

Blu-Ray on top.
DVD at bottom.

The BD is cropped in the first scene, but it seems to be fine for the rest of the film.
There's a lot of grain and a lot of additional detail.
Well worth the upgrade IMO.

Note: the BD looks a bit red and the DVD looks a bit orange. I can't tell whether it's a software problem on my end or if it's the disc itself.
I used to be "the man who loves the movies you hate".
Now I'm just "that weird french guy with a cat avatar who comes to BnB once a year for no reason and then disappears again".

Thanks Tom. Are you planning to do a Flash Point comparison?

It looks like a solid upgrade.

FYI the USA Tai Seng BD is a Mega Star port. I understand the Megstar BD even has an English dub.

Okay, Hung.
Just for you I'll add a screencap of Anne Suzuki in her swimsuit tomorrow. :wink:

Fair enough Tom. I thought it was the sort of film you'd buy.

Crikey very plain looking. I was expecting a Hot Asian lady. She's not it.

Anne Suzuki is the kind of chick that Hung & I love.

:love1:

Much better looking than the plastic women some people are showing in the "nice bird" topics IOO (in our opinion).

That photo is likely touched up too though ;) or at least lighting is optimal.

I love Asian women as much as the next man on this forum but Anne Suzuki in that photo is very plain. Shu Qi for example isn't plastic but is much hotter, as is Zhang Ziyi.

Keeley Hazel isn't plastic either, who is an example of a lady in the "Western Birds" thread. She's as natural as Anne Suzuki in fact. Like wise Keira Knightley is a stunningly beautiful woman.

Anne Suzuki just looks like millions of other women you see in Tokyo every day, well when I was there anyway :D

Go away Brad. And take Keezel Hazel, Ziyi and Qi with you.



Now I need to buy a Blu-Ray player, too. :cry:

And Keira Knightley? :wink:

I'd have thought she was the sort of Western lady you guys like.

You can have her, too. I've only seen her in one Pirates movie, and can't remember anything about it (or her).

Keira Knightley is so thin, you can't even see her.
She's like a pencil with hair.

Just like Natalie Portman.

They compare very similarly as far as I can tell.

Re: Initial D Blu-Ray:
I'd just like to mention that the subtitles have been re-done for the Blu-Ray disc. Many spelling mistakes have been removed and the wording has been improved.
They're still not perfect, but the improvement is quite noticeable.

Cool. That's unusual. It's good to hear though.

Too bad improved IQ and better subs can't turn Initial D into a good film.
