Odd, since cable HD even at it's best is worse than Blu-ray, oftentimes very much so. There's maybe 5 titles total that don't compare favorably to the broadcast version (not counting ads, cropping, censoring, etc) such asGladiator
...i end up mostly with SD when i buy at all as i prefer classic movies or TV series and i don't feel like there is much of a quality difference
Most people here would disagree with you. Ask anyone who has Casablanca
, The African Queen
, The Adventures of Robin Hood
, or any of a number of classic titles.
..i previewed Weeds in blue ray via Netflix and when I ended up buying the set's I ordered the SD's..which were a few dollars cheaper same with the Criterion version of Last Emperor.
Also odd, considering the two titles you named had Blu-ray versions priced by the studio at the same or cheaper than the comparable DVD editions.
