I loved this movie, but im curious as to how the picture quality is.


I got the DVD version for christmas and want to know if it is worth paying the extra 6 or 7 dollars to get the HD DVD version


Thanks

I got it today. Price matched Fry's who has it for $14.99. Unfortunately, I can't really judge the picture quality, because my Xbox 360 won't play it back. It keeps telling me that parental controls are preventing playback. And then other times it's just a black screen. It's not the disk, because it plays fine in our A2 display at work, albeit slow-loading. Looked great for the brief time I tested it. All the other discs I bought today play fine. (Slevin & Poseidon)


Anyone else having this problem?

...although the High Def Digest review claims that the extras are almost entirely in 1080p (which they're not), and the one extra Peter says is in standard-def and 4x3 is actually in anamorphic widescreen. If he can look at the deleted scenes and sincerely think they're in high-def, I'd severely question anything else he has to say.

Definitely worth the money. I have both the DVD and HD DVD versions and the HD DVD looks far better. If you are a fan of this movie (or Kevin Smith in general) then rush out and get the HD DVD!

Movie looks OK, I mean it's the low-tech look that he apparently wanted and it's consistent with the other flick, so I don't much care.


I got Slevin as well, and I love that film. The writing is exceptionally witty, which is pretty rare these days.

Watched it last night. I'll echo everyone else and say that it looks as it should and that it does actually look pretty decent. In terms of video features, I've only seen the introduction, which was definitely NOT in 1080p. We'll see about the rest....

Interesting. I watched it last night on my 360 and had zero issues.


As for the PQ, I thought it was great! The grain was true to its source as someone else mentioned. Knowing how much I HATE that tier thread, it will wind up somewhere in tier 3 by their standards. If you like the film, pick it up. It was definitely HD.

What they said - while many people would say that a film like Clerks II doesn't really "need" to be in HD, it looks fantastic. It has the same sharpness, detail, and clarity you'd expect from high-definition video. The only downsides are the grain and slight desaturation, both of which were stylistic choices and thus no fault of HD-DVD itself.


Whether or not it's worth the upgrade is personal decision, but if there's an HD version of something available, *I* always prefer it. Of course, I actually waited the few months for this one to come out.

Good Movie.


Mostly dialogue. still good in HD.


Hd is always better than SD.


Better sound, and better Res.


Just cuz it's not as sharp. doesn't mean that it is no good in HD>

I watched it with no problems on my 360 add-on. Great movie.

It also has Dolby True-HD sound, so that is always a plus, even though it's not as great like on other titles that take advantage of it.
