Clerks 2 looked like it was shot on video, but it was crisp and well defined. But hey, you're not watching a Kevin Smith film to nitpick the cinematography though some of the shots (especially with HD being able to read the blog post that Randal is typing for the handicapped site) are quite entertaining.
For all of the $5m budget, you can't go wrong with that kind of film-making.
Honestly though I just rent them. I love the shout-out Smith gives to Netflix on the Clerks II HD-DVD.
King Arthur was fun too... I loved the grit, costume design, and the way they tweaked the color, even though it's definately the kind of movie you have to turn your brain off for.
