[quote=“Sundance, post:25, topic:660”]I have to disagree with anyone who says the GBU blu-ray looks good. Personally I think it looks like shit, based on the screenshots I have seen. Granted, screenshots won’t tell everything, but I am sure they tell enough.
It doesn’t look like film at all. But I guess that is how the majority wants it considering how many shitty blurays have been released and will be released (and how blu-ray.com and other sites give 5/5 to all kinds of shit).
The transfer does appear to be very uneven though and some scenes look very different.
Anyways, if I ever buy this MGM release it will be only so that I can make my own screenshots to compare with hopefully a better release (I hope the Italians will come to rescue but I’m not sure if they can release it with English audio…).
GBU bluray = shit
FOD bluray = superb
In my opinion. ;D[/quote]
Well, I’ve watched it a couple of times on my Playstation 3 and Samsung 46…and it completely spanks the DVD version.
I just wish the HD standard hadn’t been locked in so early. Everyon eis thrilled with it, and yet really, it’s not even a 3mp image being blown up to huge sizes. Too bad it hadn’t been set up as a 3000 or 4000 pixels wide image to really pull more out of these 35mm originals.
Comparing the Bluray to DVD is like comparing DVD to VHS.
