Compared to DVD, everything in HD looks amazing but in my opinion, compared to other HD movies, it looks very bad. Look at one of the last shots: The wide shot of the street with the human torch in the lower right.
That shot is full of makro-blocking. Look at the surface of the street! I never thought, I would see that on HD-disc content. You see it on HD-TV often, but on disc?
It´s not a surprise, considering that the movie is only 17,6 gigabytes in MPEG 2! I´m glad, dual layer really seems to be becoming the standard. Nothing against Blu-Ray in general but I really hope, that this is among the weaker releases, considering compression. HD DVD had/has weaker moments/releases too but I never saw obvious artefacts like these.
I also love these comparison shots! Keep it up, Xylon!
