Any Kubrick movie will look great. 2001 especially.
20 Million Miles To Earth (1957) looks very good for its age. I watched the Ray Harryhausen approved colorized version and I must say it wasn't too shabby.
Will give the original B&W version a spin soon.
Vertical Limit looks great on Blu-ray for a mid-90's film.
Sony have copied Lionsgate's practice and silently reissued this disc with an MPEG-4 AVC encode and a 2008 authoring date...even though this is a 2007 release. The original discs were MPEG-2, so I can't compare with how the old disc's transfer looked.
Casino = Awesome BD
See No Evil (2006) looks much better than the standard DVD, and the True HD dts sound delivers.
Just about all the Blue Underground flicks look great on Blu. Nice and film-like.. I really couldn't ask for more.
That really pisses me off too! I was waiting until I got a Blu Ray to get this Disc, but when it didn't have the extras, I just went ahead and bought the UK DVD.
How does it look? It is only $10 at Best Buy and I love the film, so I'll probably grab it myself. I watched the Road Warrior last night and other than one night scene (which looked horrible!!) the film looked amazing!
I heard that Full Metal Jacket looks terrible!
Not terrible, but not much improvment.
When compared to other BD's it gets worse, but it's still the best looking of any release on any format, easily.
I know there were two different releases of FMJ. A barebones one right when blu and hd-dvd came out, and then an SE that was released later. I'm not sure if the transfers are different, but I have the latest release and it looks great.
INGLORIOUS BASTERDS looks great on Blu!
Yeah the older barebones release looks horrible. The new one is much better apparently.
Original Blu Release
The Faculty (1998) looks very very good. This and From Dusk Till Dawn are probably my two favorite Blu-ray purchases this year.
Barebones, but those will do till we get fully fledged special editons (if ever).
Watched PLANET OF THE APES (original) last night - another old classic that looks astounding in hi-def!
I just jumped on board with the Blu revolution, so I don't have a lot to compare. But I have to say that both "2001" and "Crank" were both eye-poppingly amazing looking and definitely stand out as excellent showpieces in my admittedly small collection.
Watched the original Black Christmas. Definitely not one of the better transfers I've seen.
I wonder how good FANGS OF THE LIVING DEAD or VAMPIRES NIGHT ORGY will look on Blu?
agreed probably the worst quality blu i own or have seen thus far but still better than the dvd quality
I just watched this today and yeah, I'll have to agree about the quality.
It looked a little better when I changed the usual viewing mode on my LCD though, but not very much.
BENEATH THE PLANET OF THE APES also looked pretty sweet on blue. Could even see the pattern weave on James Franciscus' t-shirt. It also becomes much more apparent how cheap some of the ape makeup was on the extras.
