OK, I see it now. Not sure how I missed it. Thanks.

Nevermind, I know why I missed it: Pure desperation for a version of Blade that looks like Blu-ray.

I was reading a story at High Def Disc News that stated the release of Blade and Blade Trinity was moved to 7/10/12 to accompany the release of Blade II. Amazon price is currently $13.99, it also shows a release date of 7/10/12 in the description. How can we tell if it is not a crappy version?

Strange, sorry, maby someone else missed them too. But I will keep my Dutch BD. Ok, might check once more for the EE witch before I found so mild it didn't disturb me. Sometimes the sharpening a little bit more, but again nothing drastic. And I think the colors looked quite ok too. I was hoping to hear that atleast the SQ would be much better, since the sound on the DVD seemed perfect back in the days (or maby it was because it was such a wow factor when DVD was still quite a new format).

The US one looks better and the color timing looks more accurate to the films source.

True, and you can add as much EE using your hardware as you want.wink.gif

The audio on the US disc in fantastic, how it compares to the Dutch release I don't know but its 6.1, 4500kbps and 24 bit while the Dutch release was 5.1, 2500kbps and 16bit.

Amazon is shipping the Alliance versions. Outside of the OAR, is doesn't look terrible. The sound isn't great, and there are no extras.

So where does one go to purchase the new U.S. version with lossless 6.1 and no filtering?

It's not all an EE optical illusion, though. There is more detail in the Dutch one.

But Blade was originally a 5.1 title and I don't see the point of a artificially made extra channel.

I think you're mixing up the pictures cuz the NL version clearly has EE and has the blown out whites ....and some teal.

I think Rigby Reardon messed those comparisons badly, some are right some are not. Like blade and his mother screencap with blown whites is from us disk actually. And that minor ee in some scenes are not that big deal how badly us disk is done.

Edit: Oops, looks like that blown whites is really from nl disk. My bad:o

Ok, wtf confused.gif...i,m now little confused and too drunk/tired to make sense for the comparisons from page 2. What ever... i dont care, i stay with my scandinavian dvd anyway, it look great in upscaled and i dont put any money anymore to blade2 goz it cost too much money to me from greedy second hand dealer in that time when i bought it. sigh

It's not just EE that makes the Dutch release looks sharper - Details are sharper overall and much better defined. In comparison, the US release actually looks kind of soft. Honestly, I'm kind of disappointed the detail isn't as defined on the US release based on the screen comparisons, but at least the contrast and black levels appear to be a bit better, if not the color saturation overall.

EDIT: I'll modify my statement a little - The Dutch actually looks TOO sharp, although still, the detail on it looks quite nice for the most part. The US release probably could have been a tad sharper but its color timing is far more accurate to what the film is supposed to look like.

The screenshots are correct. Proof: I first posted the ones from the NL disc almost 3 years ago. biggrin.gif

Both releases are flawed. You can only pick your poison.

BTW, Blade is currently on sale at Fry's for $7.99. Noise-filtered or not, it is a good value at this price if you like the film.

I'm definitely jumping on the U.S releases of Blade and Blade II. I've been waiting on these and the U.S. shots look decent to me.
post #88 of 185
Apparently from what I've been reading on forums, Blade II has both 5.1 and 7.1 DTS-HD MA tracks.
post #89 of 185
So I have the Dutch import BD of Blade. Is it worth chopping this in for the upcoming US release then?

Blade II I'd like as well, as that was an OK film. Blade III, meh....

The 6.1 track on "Blade" isn't really a remix, The new rear surround channel were just sounds that were in phase in the left and right surround channels on the original 5.1 track.

It's just the original mix forced through Surround EX before final encoding.
