No revisionist nonsense on this BD release. PQ is excellent. Nothing to complain about. Especially if you know the look and style chosen by the film makers. The larger the viewing screen the better chance you will feel quesy because of the shaky camera. A lot like the Bourne movies

AQ is superb. Reference quality. 'Nuff said.

It deserves your well earned $19.99

That's the whole movie. The screen caps don't show the improvement that most films do because of the way it's shot. The real comparison is with the audio

There's not going to be a lot of shots that have a ton of detail in them because of the motion blur and plus the image was somewhat degraded for effect (ie noise). There is 1080p detail in certain shots though. How about comparisons of these (taken from online trailers):





It's interesting to note that the teaser is cropped to 2.35:1. Most likely so it could play full screen when it was attached to Transformers.

Xylons first image the difference is pretty much easy to spot and the Blu Rays looks far better, that second shot mind you is not that easy to spot the difference, its better, but looks like the transfers up and down if them are to go by I still have not got the disc, but hopefully there are more shots like the first picture than that second one.

Rcvd the BD yesterday, watched it last night(first watched it at the theater). The PQ and AQ of this movie(both are superb) just cements my thinking of not needing to go to the theater anymore.

She was on CSI for a few episodes, until her character just vanished. She added some much appreciated eye candy to that show.

It would have been funny if HUD had kept focusing on her rack throughout the movie, I know I would have.

He, Hud gets some leg action shots later on in the movie.

I don't think it's so much the transfer as it was how it was shot. They used around 4 different cameras for the entire film. A lot of the interior apartment scenes were shot with the Panasonic HVX200 HD video camera, which produces a nice picture but isn't all that great for low-light situations.

That second shot that Xylon posted looks like it was from the HVX200. I've edited a lot of HD footage from that camera and it has that look in low-light environments. What looks like a bad compression job is actually the fault of the HVX200's compression scheme (it shoots to P2 cards).

I'd still say that the apartment scenes look nice given that it was shot on HD video. I can't remember when the higher quality cameras were used, but the nighttime exteriors were certainly not shot with the HVX200.

By the way, great movie and sound mix!

Paramount and Fox do this a lot for their movie trailers. The only one i have seen Paramount not alter for the screen is Indiana Jones and Kung Fu Panda. They have been doing this for several years now and i wish sometimes they wouldn't tease me with what the movie could of been like in Scope (War of the Worlds) Got tons of Film trailers at home that show this.

Her name is Jessica Lucas and she was also in the movies Amusement, The Covenant and She's the Man.

Pretty obvious improvement on the BRD in that last shot. Just compare the scattering of rocks.

Just because she was the main character's love interest doesn't mean she was supposed to be "the hottie".

Unfortunately I fell prey to all of the hype and watched it SD. Since the movie wasn't very good, I'm now torn about suffering through it again so that I can experience the AQ of the TrueHD track.

Is it worth it?

It's never over, it's never finished....it's never cheap.

It wasn't meant to be taken too seriously , Usually the female lead is considered to be the most attractive though.

I guess there's no accounting for taste. I much preferred the female lead to the girl who everbody else is drooling over.

Thank God we don't all like the same girls or there'd be a lot of lonely people out there.

Look at it this way: If you and I were the last two men on Earth, and these two girls were the last two females on Earth, you and I would be DELIGHTED with the split. Not too sure how the gals would feel. :-)
