Ok, bringing back the HOFD argument. I bought Stargate yesterday on Blu-ray(only $3 at CC) and it looks HORRIBLE compared to House of Flying Daggers. I don't see how Stargate isn't in the Coal tier. It's absolutely friggin terrible. I understand it's already in the Bronze tier, but I really think it needs to be put in the very last position. Even my girlfriend said it looked like crap compared to HOFD.
I'm watching on a Phillips 42PFL7432D/37 1080p via HDMI. Viewing distance is about 8 feet. Using a PS3 with 24p turned off.
There were points in Stargate where it looked like a DVD. Especially inside of Ra's pyramid spaceship. The outside scenes were OK, but still mediocre. Even compared to HOFD!
If Stargate doesn't belong in the Coal tier, I'd hate to see what really belongs in that category.
