    Yes, but ON A SMALLER SCREEN there is little to no difference. DVDs look bad on a large-screen HDTV, however blu-ray looks outstanding. If you were to project a blu-ray movie on a large theatre screen yes it would look like garbage. That is one of the big appeals of blu-ray, that you get razor sharp resolution on a large screen TV. We're never going to have theatre-sized screens in our home, so blu-ray brings the theatrical experience, now with the quality of film into the average person's home.

    Trust me, I know the difference. I'm a cinema studies major, we screen movies every week (in a lecture theatre). Some are on 35mm, and some (usually much older ones) are shown on DVD. When DVD is projected, blown up on a large theatre screen it looks like ass. Obviously 35mm film has a much higher resolution, that's a given. Sure I may have exaggerated it to begin with, but what I meant was the transition from 480p to 1080p has brought home video a lot closer and pretty much to the quality of film when watched on an HDTV. It's not like the average person's going to begin screening 35mm prints of films in their living room. It's not going to happen. Home video has finally reached the quality of film, for the relative size of a large-screen television.

    If HDTVs get to be the size of theatre screens in peoples' homes, then yes we'll need a new format because the only instance where blu-ray won't match the quality of film is when it's blown up on a theatre-sized screen. (Hell, DVD can look phenomenal when shown on a tiny screen. Blow it up and the resolution is lost.)

    Nice. February can't come soon enough. I really hope they continue this trend with at least the next three films.

    None, the series just bores me now. I'd rather watch the Halloween films or the original Nightmare On Elm Street.

    They should make ALL regular dvds Superbit. Lots of people still have regular dvd players. And picture, sound quality is more important than seeing, hearing them talk about what they did while making the movie!

    I def get what your saying, and I usually loathe extras and loud ass dvd menus (I was a laserdisc person shoot me) but I've recently emancipated myself from cable and really enjoy extras now, it can really be a cool fun thing, if you don't have to rush for time, I've been milking extras on my dvds and blu-rays and it's kept me pretty entertained.

    Just a quick heads-up. A lot of UK etailers is listing part 2 and 3 on Blu-ray. Release date in February by Paramount. So I would assume they will be released in the US as well.

    New Line hasn't made a competent Friday yet. Fuck I hate them.

    The first 8 Paramount's only for me.

    Although I own them all, New Line's are clearly the worst in the series.
