    did a John Carpenter blu ray double header with Halloween and The Thing. first time i'd seen either in HD, and neither one disappointed. it's honestly been years since i've watched either, and i was pleased to see that they both held up quite well. In the case of The Thing, i think it's been longer than i thought since i'd seen it, since there were several things that happened that i had no memory of, such as which people are things, and some of the developments towards the end. both great movies, and both looked and sounded terrific.

    Zodiac DC - beauty. A few rough scenes here and there but most sparkles. Sound seemed a bit on the low side (I had to turn my reciever up to 8, usually dvds are watched around 15-20) but was clear.

    Apollo 18, which I will call a snorefest. I watched it yesterday afternoon, and about 15 minutes into it, I dozed off, and about 15-20 minutes passed when I woke up, then I procedded to doze off again for another 10 minutes. Should have stop it after I dozed off the 2nd time. Glad I only rented in instead of buying it. Not worth even a rental.

    in terms of video quality, Resurrection looks the best (not surprising, given that it's the only progressive transfer). Colors are good, when they're there, and detail is quite nice. I'm about halfway through Curse, and I'm surprised at how good it looks, how vibrant the colors are, and the amount of detail, considering that it's 1080i. But H20 looks abysmal. Colors are incredibly drab, like you're watching the film through a screen door, an impression that's only made worse by the incredibly obvious interlacing going on. In certain scenes it's so noticeable it's distracting.

    As far as the films themselves go, I'd only seen Resurrection once, and had forgotten just how truly bad it is. H20 is honestly pretty terrible too, although a better transfer might have improved my opinion of it. Although I'm not finished watching Curse yet, so far it's the most legitimately entertaining, although that's not saying much.
