    November?! Seems like a missed opportunity there. Give us some hi-def for Halloween!

    Yes! I second that notion. Let's just hope the long wait will be worth it.

    Well, that's put a damper on my enthusiasm for the format, too...


    PDW, BTW, hi all.

    Welcome to the forums, buddy.

    As for this technology - I'm sure there will be a way that this can be circumvented in time. Just look how quick it took everyone to break the code for data encryption on the discs. I'm still surprised though, that nobody has a fix for taking screenshots on your Blu-ray ROM drive without first copying the contents of the disc to your hard drive first.

    BD+ already has been cracked, last I heard it hadn't been patched yet. But since the end of the format war I've been out of the loop.

    I'm leery of Blue Underground's entrance into HD, as I suspect they're going to crank the DNR.

    Rhett: Thanks for the welcome. Yeah, I'm sure there'll be someone who hacks this. Eh, it also doesn't help that I don't have a hi-def tv...

    I really hope NEW YORK RIPPER gets BD treatment at some point.

    Definitely, such an excellent film. I really hope this happens in the near future.

    I can not wait, greatest new ever. I was stuck on whether to get Blu-ray or not. Now I know what I am getting.;)

    Of the first 6 they announced, I'm getting:

    The Bird with the Crystal Plumage
    Vigilante
    Maniac
    Fire & Ice

    No interest in The Final Countdown, and I'm happy with the 2-disc of Stendhal I already own from BU.

    I wonder how they'll handle the grain on that one!

    It'll be grainy as fuck, I'll tell you that much. Grain's not really a "flaw" or "defect" in the print, anyway. Grain is quite inherent in film stock. Some films just end up grainier than others.

    the transfer looks godawful. I'm shocked to read how kindly this release gets treated in reviews. jezzz. so glad I rented it from netflix rather than having spent 20 bucks on it. and no, I didn't expect pristine high end state of the art image quality. the stendhal syndrome BD though makes me question if BU's quality control even bothered to take a look at their product before they released it.... unbeliebavle!
