Is it worth it? Are you ready to forgive and forget? Still holding on to your beliefs that the original release is good enough? Do we finally have something we can use to demo our High Definition capable home theater and finally retire the good old Superbit DVD?
I decided to put most of the Fifth Element caps in this thread instead of the other one because of its notoriety. Other movies will go there as usual of course.
Whoah how did you get a copy so early, Xylon?? It's not due for release until the 17th!
P.S. Even in that one shot above the difference is striking. Much better mastering! Take a look at the lower right corner of the MPEG2 image and all you see is a brownish smudge. The same area on the AVC encode is more detailed. Also, the "scratch" near the center of the image is a lot crisper on the AVC.
