I received this HD DVD yesterday and must admit I am very disappointed. It is very soft and the has a darker cast than the original Region 1 DVD release. The skin tones also seem fairly red/orange.


Over all this HD DVD is a poor encode. Certainly not worth the premium that importing requires. I wish I had my $40+ back. I will now be very wary of imports. Hope this helps.

Thinking of the scenes with Rollergirl, has anyone else noticed how much was cropped out of the picture for the 16x9 vs the 4x3? In doing my comparison between the original DVD and this HD DVD, for kicks I threw in the 4x3 side of the DVD and wow what an improvement!!! I was shocked to realize how much information was thrown away in the process of making the 16x9. I guess the film was done on Super35 and cropped for the 16x9. Just a point I thought some might appreciate!
