Really great, fresh western/comedy/action movie.
Recommended to everyone who love western and entertaining movie.
(note: the US Blu is 1080i but the Canadian Blu fron E1 is 1080p.)
No Country For Old Men
Mega Python vs. Gatoroid (2011)
Movie: 4/5 Cheese
Raising Arizona (1987)
Movie: 5/5 Classic
This one looks far better in HD than I'd ever hoped for. Definitely a major improvement over the antiquated letterboxed DVD.
The Fellowship of the Ring - looked great- I had seen the theatrical on blu too and I think the extended edition picture is noticeably better
Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974)
The Two Towers - looked even better then Fellowship
An American Werewolf In London (1981)
Movie - 5/5
Video - 4/5
Audio - 4/5
The Green Hornet (2011)
X-Men First Class
Leaving Las Vegas
Movie: 3/5 (I rememebered some fun parts, but none this time, what a fucking downer.)
Video: .05/5 Quite possibly the worst looking BD I've seen so far, just horrible. Maybe the movie is supposed to look this way, but I couldn't read the neon signs in the opening shots of Vegas, even when they got close!
Audio: 4/5 Sounded fine
Extras: 0/5 not even a trailer.
Overall disc: 1/5 and not even close to worth owning. 2 scenes looked good, the rest left me wondering if it was supposed to be this ugly. Can't imagine this looks any better than my dvd dub except for those 2 scenes, no need whatsoever to own this. Even if I planned to watch it everyday I wouldn't bother with the bd. A serious waste of time, money and plastic!
The Funhouse (1981)
The UK Blu-ray is just a small step above the DVD in terms of picture quality. There are only a few very brief moments of good HD.
Another thing I noticed and I'm not sure if I'm imagining this, but for some reason I recall a short dialogue scene between the two girls in the car on the way to the carnival. I keep thinking said dialogue was included on the Laserdisc that I used to own but seems to be missing from the U.S. DVD and the UK Blu-ray.
The Dorm That Dripped Blood (1982)
