I want to sell the Metalpak this release was in, Best Buy Exclusive, since I'm keeping the disc and already have it in a regular Viva Elite case.

Re: Police Story (1985: Jackie Chan: Hong Kong)

Pity the Kam & Ronson releases for the Trilogy are SD upscales, I wouldn't touch the Shout! release, the custom Blu-ray I'd need to look into, STILL haven't gotten around to buying the HKL releases for the extra features (Don't know if they're available from Amazon UK OR Zavvi), and would Mediumrare...

Crippled Avengers sounds good but I doubt it would be made today as it appears so politically incorrect from the trailer I saw :D It's not P-inC really. Watch the damn movie first.

Hopefully you'll do it quite soon since I'm more of a Blu-ray person compared to DVD now.

Re: Road To Perdition R1 DVD Vs UK Blu-Ray

Sam, I suggest to use png instead of jpeg for the comparison images from now on. Didn't even need to make a choice as the USA Blu-ray was a great upgrade from the USA DTS DVD I owned. Never got around to reading the graphic novel for some reason. It's Blu-ray disc or Blu-ray instead of Blu-Ray. You ...

Re: How is the 12 Monkeys Blu Ray?

My USA HD-DVD is pretty grainy. Universal tend to just re-use the HD-DVD up the bitrate and add DTS-HD MA. It's essentially the same transfer. Surely the UK BD "is" the USA BD but with BBFC logos on the cover. Grainy is a good thing since oh let's say the filmmakers shot this on film instead of ove...

Re: Minority Report UK R2 DVD Vs USA Blu-Ray

So it is. I picked the UK BD up recently. I hadn't even noticed. I wonder if this means the picture or audio (maybe lower bitrate) suffers? The extras look to be identical (including a lot in HD). My apologies for a slow reply but the film disc is on a BD50 and the extra features are on another Blu...

The UK disc is only a single disc and not a 2-Disc release.

Red Cliff Parts I & II - 6/5 Got this as an early birthday present on the 2nd since my birthday is on the 5th. Watched it actually on my birthday and the day after for both parts. Need more Romance of the Three Kingdoms stuff to watch. Most favourite John Woo film out of what I've seen currently. No...

Romance of the Three Kingdoms TV series question

Due to Red Cliff Parts I & II is why I'm asking of course. :cool: Has anyone seen this and if so, which is the best release to buy? I'm looking to buy all 85 episodes and Tai Seng is never an option. I did see DDDHouse.com having the last few volumes but not the first. Any other recommendations as t...
