There are a few BDs I've encountered that don't have DNR, but they turn out to be very grainy.


You DID spot the typo in the post he quoted?

DRM = Digital Rights Management (i.e. copy protection)
DNR = Digital Noise Reduction (which I believe is what member Trailergod meant?)

What the hell am I supposed to do if I want to transport this thing? The box is unwieldy and will get destroyed. I'll have to move the discs to a different case.

I honestly thought Warner's days of snapper case deviation was over with blu-ray and we would finally have uniform packaging for our shelves. I guess I was wrong, we have books that look like crap because the spine screws up the front cover art, and now pizza boxes.

Dillon: My men were in that chopper when it got hit! Hopper's orders were to go in and remove grain and the detail just disappeared.
Dutch: It didn't disappear. It was scrubbed alive!

Maybe in 50 years the most valued Blu-ray of all will be the intact pizza box in mint condition.

That's true. But aren't they in NY? Why is it a deep-dish box? That makes no sense at all. If it was skinnier it wouldn't look so goofy.

BTW - Chicago style pwns.

Ridiculous codec tier sig gone. Still AVC/24bit lossless fanboy.

Studio quality tier
Most Major studios>Small Studios>dogs>cats>Warner(the guys that do new movies)

It's fun while it's fresh, but containers are needed so the leftovers don't go stale.

I'm not paying money for my discs to be housed in a fragile cardboard box. At least have the cardboard box be the outer packaging, and house the discs in keepcases inside. They're not doing that however, and man is it disappointing. If I can pick the TMNT set up for $10 someday, I'll bite.

These things also only have the trailers on them, save TMNT which has all the other extras.

Warner can f off with this release.

Ugh. Once again I must voice my strong opinion that custom gimmick packaging SUCKS HARD.

It literally pulls all excitement I have for these releases out the window. It instantly reduces my purchasing likelihood by at least 40%. Any movie that was somewhat questionable before instantly becomes a "no" when I see that I can't store it with my Blu-ray collection on my Blu-ray shelves and have it look decent, because some idiot pinhead decided to come up with yet another ****** gimmick.

And that goes for the ****** digibooks, as well.

Can you tell this is a sore spot for me?

Oh well, maybe they will eventually release them in normal packaging. Though knowing Warner, I'm sure they'll make the first one into a crappy digibook then.

Man, I'd take digibook a million times over these. At least if you're moving you don't have to worry about those being crushed.

Screenshots here: http://highdefnews.blogspot.com/2009...tles-25th.html

TMNT 1 & 2 have quite a bit of grain surprisingly. 3 looks like your typical smoothed transfer.

To buy it?

Wish it did not have the fourth movie, I would have already bought it.

When in doubt use the spoiler tag "[$poiler] Spoiler text [/spoiler]"

Agree that including the fourth movie is another boneheaded move. These should be packaged as a trilogy.

Screenshots do look nice. If Warner releases them individually in standard packaging I would pick up 1-3. If not they can keep 'em and I have my DVDs. These movies are not high enough priority to bother replacing the packaging on.

I would also find a trilogy release in their usual thinpaks to be perfectly fine.

We'll see...

They probably have a huge surplus of them and throwing in that movie is nothing to them, as long as they move stock. I do not think too many people bought that movie.

I might have to find space for this set.

I'm surprised no one likes the fourth movies. If I remember correctly, I believe it was number 1 at the Box Office during opening weekend.

The fourth movie is awesome - and easily the best one since the first. It really captured the spirit and style of TMNT... I think the main problem with including it in the set is that all us die hard Turtle fans already own it.

I agree, I love the fourth movie... I don't think anyone spoke ill of it in this thread.

In addition to the fact that I already own it, I also think that because it's such a different style (CGI animated and made so much later, not firmly established in the same continuity, different voice actors, etc) that it should remain a separate release. Don't mash it in the box with the other three.

I would feel the same way if they tried:

Batman Begins/Dark Knight with the 1989 Batman and it's 3 sequels
The new Star Trek with the first 10 films
The Daniel Craig Bonds with the others

etc

Oh yeah! I forgot that TMNT is already out. Yeah, that's not a smart move to include it as I'm sure all TMNT fans already own that movie and are just awaiting for the first three to come out.

There's a reason for that. All of the Turtle fans went to go see it, including myself.

The problem for me was the story, which seemed to be pulled out of a random episode of the cartoon series. They also tried to connect with the previous films (Shredder opening, end sequence with all the props) and that makes zero sense because April now does Kung fu.

The animation was amazing, and I adored the Raph/Leo fight on the roof during the rain. One of my favorite action scenes ever, honestly. Still, that story is a bummer dude... (yeah, I went there).

i got mine yesterday!

i think part2 and 3 look equally nice. part1 looks a bit darker grainier, less clear but i compared to my dvd and its quite a bit better anyway.

part4 looks excellent but ive seen better looking animation movies. and i kind of didnt like this movie.

collectibles in box are nice but dvd version gets 4 bandana masks and we get a beanie?

Blu-Rays: 60

Sorry for bumping a 4 year old thread, but ...

TMNT blu ray has just been released in Australia. The packaing states that the supplied audio is Dolby TrueHD, and DD 5.1.
On playing, there was only a DD 5.1 track.

Has anyone else purchased the Australian blu ray and noticed this ?

Ta !

The TMNT Blu-Ray's default to the standard Dolby Digital 5.1 track when they start up. You'll have to use the pop-up menu and manually select the Dolby TrueHD track. It's a bit of a pain, but a lot of Warner's older discs were done like that.

Hope that helps!
