Not a great deal to complain about there, then :)

Yeah there is, we want this film on BD!

Dragon Dynasty obviously have good enough quality masters, so I reckon they should start releasing the films on both BD & DVD...

Well, what do you know? For once it's the HK Vidéo that's too dark.
I prefer it to the contrast-boosted DD of course, but a slight increase in brightness would have been nice.

That Dimension/DD title card is a shocker.

Dimension's colours look the best.

DD looks very good apart from the shocking title card, that looks far worse than HKL slapping their "Crime Story" logo onto the original title card for example.

@Chenlung:
It's not bad, but the contrast-boosting has had some strange effects on skintones.
Look at Jet's girlfriend in the second to last cap. She's completely white on the DD. :D

It's weird. HK Video is supposed to look like that :lol:

Sorry, my bad.
I thought you were talking about the DD.

DD is probably the best by a whisker.

Dimension has richer colours, but is very soft.

Both the DD and HKV look great. The DD probably wins though.

The HKV looks to have bolstered colours in some shots.

DD is the most 'politically' correct and better because blacks are deeper than HKVideo (it's got subtitles, even though they're not as good as they should be), anamorphic, less-cropped, less-tampering with the gamma levels and not as blue-ish. However, it's still not black enough and contrast-boosted - the last shot looks artificially brightened too.

However, Dimension has the best blacks and colours (levels infact) all-round (even though it's non-anamorphic and soft) and I can't understand why reviewers (Mark Pollard at KFC) dismiss it.

I thought the Dimension was rather blurry in motion, which isn't something you can always tell from screencaps

Is it true the DD has the frame blurriness that affected Tai Chi Master

Maybe Brad's quote (in your signature) applies to me :| . For some reason, I knew I'd be pulled up on that (why didn't you quote the next few words?!).

:lol:

Honestly, the DD looked a lot better than I was expecting. But I agree the Miramax version does have better colors though.

Sometimes I think the members of these forums view these comparison threads with shades or blindfolds on!

The Dimension's colours are clearly over-saturated. The Japanese military did not occupy China looking like The Incredible Hulk! The strongest colours are not always the best! I'd be happy with the colour schemes of all 3 transfers tbh.

The DD transfer really is quite nice, better than I was expecting. It's not nearly as badly contrast boosted as Tom makes out, although the skintones are indeed a little off. It's a touch too bright as well.

Black levels are not stronger on the Dimension, none of the transfers have a problem with their black levels.
