It's the third title in Tier 1

Hit CTRL+F and enter search terms to find a specific title. It makes it a little easier than scanning the entire thing

Thanks. I wish the b1g1 was still going so I could get these cheaper. There are 10 disney dvd's I want. I would love to only pay for 5.

Probably not. Storage becomes an issue. If you can upload it to a server somewhere (else), you can use the "Insert Image" tag and link it and it will appear in your post.

If a site is needed to host images for display on this thread, I'm willing to provide it gratis. Please PM if this would help.

If Spidey 1 in on Tier 2 the The Rock, Con Air, Face/Off, Air Force One, Pearl Harbor should be in Tier 4. Come on guys. I thought Spidey looked better than few other titles in Tier 1. To my eyes Patriot both looked and sounded better than Spidey 2.

Blu-ray : 340

Well I'm editing this post because I've watched Remember the Titans, as well as another half dozen Blu-ray discs in the past few days, and believe Remember the Titans should be placed higher than Silver tier which I initially suggested. The transfer is sharp, detailed, and realistic. Equally important, it's consistent. In my opinion this title belongs in the middle of the gold tier, it looks better than Black Hawk Down, and 300, but not quite as great as Pirates 1, or Casino Royale.

Audio is great also, lots of great tunes in this movie, PCM is a good thing .

Remember the Titans belongs mid Tier-1 in my honest opinion.

Can anyone give me an idea of the quality of The Lives of Others, Pan's Labyrinth (import) and Zodiac (import)? I've heard good things about the transfer of The Lives of Others, just wondering how it related to the tier system.

IMO it was upper tier 2. Nice transfer, but nothing spectacular.

Just got done watching 2001 and its flat out stunning. Just gorgeous from beginning to end.

Not to mention that its a great movie as well.

I say a Tier 0. Can't say if its a top tier 0 but a "0" nonetheless.

I have to disagree.

I would put it in Tier 1 for sure. Excellent looking film. And a GREAT movie to boot!

I agree with this placement. It's not a "knock your socks off" visual effects film, but the transfer was great, and like Rob said, it was a fabulous story as well.

Exactly. Not a Tier 0 or anything, probably near the bottom of Tier 1.....but Tier 1 nonetheless.

It definitely looks better than most Warner titles, but it doesn't compare to the best from other studios. I wish the people doing the recent Fox titles had been able to get their hands on this for a BD only transfer.

The moment somebody gets their hands on Ratatouille, let us know how it is. I was hoping to get that from my Netflix queue on Tuesday, but Cars got shipped instead

I didn't see Galapados on the list unless I missed it. I'd say Tier 0 for sure.

BTW, there is enough folks contributing to the Spidey threads stating #3 isn't Tier 0!

I was going to try the trick of removing everything else out of my queue except the movie you want that is being released, but I have like 60 movies in my queue so that's not really feasible.

And regarding the post about Spiderman 3 not being Tier 0, I'll be watching it today or tomorrow so I'll report what I think then.

Didn't get Rat when I had it in my queue either, just Cars. I wonder how many Netflix got.

My local Blockbuster said they did not get it in yet either so maybe there is a shortage or distribution problem? They usually get new releases early.

We will see how the B&M stores do with their shipments.

Spidey 3 is very good, just not Tier 0!

Alright, I watched about half of Cars last night. From what I saw, I'd recommend it for Tier 0. The opening scene with Lightning coming out of the trailer is just spectacular!

Any other input?


Specs: 56" 1080p DLP, PS3 via HDMI.

I vote for Cars as a Tier 0. No doubt.

Sounds pretty good too...

Hey, we are back... I agree that The Patriot has been left way below where it should be. It's right there with Wild Hogs, and certainly over Black Hawk Down (the other two movies from Tier 1 that I've seen).

PS3 - HDMI - Philips 42" 1080p - 7-8 ft.

Just watched part of this movie last night. What's up with 01:01:12 into the movie? That shot of Heath Ledger looks a hell of a lot grainier than the rest of the movie...
