I had to take my computer in to be looked at because the damn thing keeps getting the blu-screen-of-death every time I work the CPU hard, probably due to a falty fan because it gets over heated. Due to that I am using my old XP computer (soooo slooow). I don't have the rest of the caps for the Hard-...

Updated with a few audio/video reviews.

I'll be watching the special features on disc two by next week so I'll probably have reviews for those up by the 23rd or so. :)

Part Two: Audio and Extras Audio Quality (Dragon Dynasty): I cannot comment on any other DVDs audio wise so my main focus here will be the R1 Dragon Dynasty DVD. In short, I was very impressed! Remastered in both 5.1 Cantonese Dolby Digital and DTS, Hard-Boiled sounds brand-new, literally. What was...

Hard-Boiled: DVD Comparison!

Hard-Boiled Part One: Scanning through the various transfers Video Quality (Dragon Dynasty): Hard-Boiled has never had a very good DVD in Region One. Even the now out-of-print Criterion Collection DVD was extremely poor. Well, we have now been granted a new release from Dragon Dynasty and the resul...

Brazil: Criterion Collection

Brazil The Criterion Collection SPINE # 51 re-issue This Criterion Collection features all the supplements from the 1996 laserdisc ported over. There are two versions of this set and can be very hard to tell apart. This set was originally released in 1999 before Criterion committed to anamorphic tr...

I'm glad I'm neutral but am slightly pissed because I have more HD-DVDs than Blu-rays. I guess I'm gonna have to cut down my HD-DVD purchases and only buy Warner titles on Blu-ray.

Those are the R1 DVDs.
I agree with your statements. What really should have been done here is to provide both versions to avoid controversy much like what is done with MGM and the Don Bluth films like The Secret of Nimh.

Got the R1 2-discer a while back and the image seems processed. You can see the splices too. Image looks a tad pinkified on the HD one ;)! Not a bad image, but detail isn't the greatest (thanks to the grain). Note: Those captures aren't the same frame. I already know about them being off and have b...

300 Top: DVD Bottom: HD-DVD The HD screenshots are all from HDMOVIES.co.nz, notice the watermark. I matched them with the DVD. 300 is a particularly hard movie to transfer given its large amount of grain and the DVD has trouble reproducing it for video given DVD's lower bandwidth. The HD-DVD even h...

Great work CJ. However: The Unicorn Re-edited: - Only one image is shown, the other two do not work. Matte Lines and Shot Reverse: - Original image is missing. As well as obviously all the "Pics coming soon". Fixed so hopefully that works. The Esper Photo: - Her face looks the same? Look again. Zho...
