It's probably not a trend, but I've seen it happen on some higher priced video releases. It's also just a release week sale, I'd expect to see higher prices on them at BB next week.

Thanks to Xylon and msv.

So let me get this straight, fanboy is a person who points out obvious lack of quality on one of the most anticipated titles on Blu-Ray despite dozen threads about how quality of audio might have been better on Transformers despite the fact that it got 5/5 stars on both picture and audio reviews, but the same people who were talking about this and Blu-Ray's clear advantage in bitrate and space now have THIS to prove the point?

I'll say it again..these look awful and even though I was planning on getting the trilogy I will definitely not get this and I will wait for the proper version of it. I'm curious to see POTC3 as I need to get that and Disney has been solid on POTC discs (except for the grainy as crap POTC1).

I expected much better. Transfer looks to be a bit too gritty and noisy.



To be blunt, this looks awful.

It's the photography of that scene, which was problematic. The night scenes in SM2 and 3 are much better.

On Spidey 3, the DVD almost looks the same as BD version. Horrible to be honest. This is truly dissapointing.

Man if you can't see how awful Spidey 3 is on DVD (on the screenshot) vs the BluRay, you need a new monitor and glasses

The screen from Spiderman 2 are very good also (vs the DVD), when you blow them onto a 92+ inch screen it's then that you can appreciate it..

Spiderman 1 does seems to be lack luster, even the SuperBit DVD look bad..

89+ Blu-ray Disc ;)

Did Raimi have a low shooting budget for Spider-Man 1? No Panavision, bad filmstock, not enough lighting for nighttime shots...

Although, the same could be said in reverse for Spidey 3... fantastic visual quality marred by terrible CGI SFX!!!

Dan

Listen up, studios! Just say "NO" to DNR and EE!!

ive watched spiderman 1 on tv not too long ago and i was really impressed by the pq. as long as spidey 1 can match or surpass that, i have no problems with how it looks. 2 and 3 look excellent tho, cant hate on it. still kinda pissed off about how spidey 3 turned out tho. venom shoulda got wayyyyyyyyyyyy more character building, hopefully all 3 back to back to back will make me appreciate 3 more

150 million I think. lol I think Raimi was still in his low budget mode at the time. The daytime stuff is much better than the night though.

Shooting in 1.85:1 was a delibrate decision though to emphasize the height of the city. 2.35:1 was chosen for the sequel to better accomodate Doc Ock's arms.

Glancing over the shots again have convinced me to pick up the set tomorrow. It looks pretty darn good. Besides, raw captures tend to look desaturated and bring out every little imperfection...

Very sad how the PS3 won't downmix TrueHD to 1.5mbps, and my receiver isn't HDMI though.

And when did college students look that old?

It will be a boxset w/ 3 cases from most places, however pics have surfaced of a digipack at Target.

Xylon, Now this gets interesting. These 3 caps prove that the BD version is at least 2-3 times detailed than the DVD version.

Blu-ray : 340

Picked this up at Wal Mart tonight. Just got done watching Spider-Man 3... was not all that impressed. It's not horrible by any means, but not top tier material by any means.

I'll be taking a peek tonight as I guess I lucked out with Netflix shipping 2 & 3 to me. I know one cannot buy the first two separately but at least I'll be able to check out #2 regardless. I wonder if Blockbuster stores will have these separately on BD. Maybe they will get some boxed sets to break up for rental for #2 and #1.

Nice thread as I'm enjoying the discussion and feedback! Thanks folks!

So is it worth buying the hd box set? I already have the 1 and 2 dvd copy, I am thinking of getting the trilogy. (Just bought the single spidey 3 from bestbuy).

Enjoy HD no matter what......

That's basically what Xylon is doing. Upconverted via Photoshop's bicubic resize.

The resolution jump over the dvds of SM2 and 3 are staggering. I didn't think it would be that big.

The Spider-Man films aren't pretty, especially 1. I'm surprised they look this great.

I finally got around to watching my copy of Replacement Killers on BD, another title that I'd read a lot of criticisms of, and again it was a top-notch release by Sony.

It was another title that people cried "the night shots are grainy." That's how film works folks, especially depending on how you choose your stock and how much lighting you use. Be glad it wasn't shot digitally; then you'd have a real mess. Unless you shoot day for night and digitally color time it to night which is a trend these days.

This is Raimi, the guy who did the Evil Dead films (and don't count the DNR'd Blu-ray/BOTD edition of EDII). Darkman? Do you think his intent was to make Spider-Man 1 look like pristine HD cam? I'd expect dark and gritty. I'm amazed that's the Superbit version; it truly looks awful compared with the BD. As for the others, amazing how much eliminating edge enhancement does. And the clarity!

The first film has a bit of a dark atmoshphere; an uglier look probably helps it (though these caps don't look ugly to me).

At least you guys should be happy when Blade Runner hits; having seen it theatrically it's almost too clean now, but Ridley did his best with the color timing to keep it very smoggy and atmospheric, though it's still much bluer than old versions of it. But he showed us with Alien he likes to change his mind regarding color timing. Everyone seems to go from warm, organic colors to cold, synthetic colors. Save Alien which did the reverse!

My midis bring all the Force to the yard; my midis are better than yours!

So far I'm somewhat disappointed with SM1. Obviously the picture is sharper than the DVD, but I'm getting a TON of aliasing.

Hoping that 2 and 3 look better as people say they do.

Playing at 1080p24 from a PS3 to a Toshiba Regza 47".

HD-A1 and a PS3. I just wish we could all get along.

It was definitely worth the $8 I paid for the set! I trade in some DVDs and the Heroes HD DVD to pay for the rest.

heh $150M, for the price of making a movie you can buy Paramount HD exclusivity for 18 months.
