I Just Bought … (the SW Shopping Diary)

Yes, my main issue with WE releases. I’m not trying to be disrespectful but they often look like the transfers are done by someone with basically no knowledge of video transfer & encoding. Issues with frame blending from poorly done PAL -> NTSC conversions (or vice versa). I barely know anything myself, but when I’m working on a project I will spend entire days figuring out what the video needs to make it look right, and there’s really no reason why a releasing company should not be doing the same.

I got requiem for a gringo… I guess this means it’s 1080p, the blu ray honesty looks and sounds great

Sounds great. 720P also sounded weird. Funny why that info is stated all over the place.

Really need to analyze some screenshots for comparing against DVD release. Resolution doesn’t necessarily mean anything other than the image has been sized to the reported resolution.

720p is weird yes… in an era where most people buy 4k tvs these days.

I can’t belive they couldn’t bootleg the german blu ray properly… oh well :slight_smile: hopefully the English dub is high quality.

Well we are still waiting to confirm if its 720 or 1080.

blu-ray.com & a user review on Amazon both state 720p, but blu-ray.com doesn’t have any screenshots, reviews or other details so they are likely basing it off the info on dvdcompare (http://www.dvdcompare.net/comparisons/film.php?fid=48709) - here it states 720p AVC MPEG-4 & the following: " * *Special thanks to Rewind user Åsmund_Utvik for providing these specifications."

The screenshot by chuck_connors_brother says 1080, but we don’t know if its just stating the set resolution of the TV or the actual disc info
