Many titles that were released on Blu have inferior pq than their HD DVD counterpart not to mention inferior audio on some Paramount releases. I would rather BB and V look a little soft than be sharpened with noticeable edge enhancement.
I think Igans was being cynical. I'm pretty sure he's dual format. But most BDs from Disney(the go to for top notch BD) have screemingly high bitrates.
I think we are done with the HD-DVD vs BD stuff. But Warner does cripple some releases with low bitrate VC-1(Jesse James).
I agree that V and Bats look good in HD. They just don't look as good now compared to the new cream of the crop we get. They are better than the dvds. But personally I think that's due to the better color space of HD.
They are a little more soft than I would like. But that is definently better than EE.
