I thought there was a thread for this but couldn't find it. Looking forward to the BD but I'm guessing we won't be seeing any PQ improvements (besides going to HD).

Not sure what you mean by this, but count me among those who consider this to be Tarantino's best work.


That opinion usually rattles more than a few Pulp Fiction fans, but I'm looking forward to both BDs being in my library after having seen neither of these films in many years.

Jackie Brown discussion is kind of combined in the Pulp Fiction thread.

thirdkind, check my comments re: Jackie Brown in the Pulp Fiction thread



So Scoop, does this mean Rboster is going to swoop in and close this thread as redundant?

The combination of Tarantino and Elmore Leonard is pretty much unstoppable. Dialog and characters reign supreme. The cast is also the best ensemble that Tarantino has ever had. Never get tired of watching this one, which I can't say about Pulp Fiction.

I'm still holding out hope for new transfers for Jackie Brown and Pulp Fiction. Even though Lionsgate loves recycling almost as much as Universal, they did release Memento and The Last Unicorn.

I'll be buying it regardless of the pattern of the grain or the misalignment of the 437th pixel from the top left corner.

Dude, that's the 438th pixel from the top left corner. OK?

Obviously your magnifying glass is fringing while inspecting screencaps

Hey, are you reading my mind?

Stop it!


Actually for me, the weakest cast member in Pulp Fiction was Travolta.

Not that he was bad, just average although most PF fans love him as Vincent.

With that said, I thought Travolta did a perfect turn as Chili Palmer.


If there is one thing that Tarantino does really, really well, it's brilliant casting.

While I liked him, I'd have to agree. It's not that he was bad...he just seemed either out of place or outclassed by the other actors. And one day I'd like for someone to acknowledge Bruce Willis as a good actor. He was damn near perfect in PF.

Dude, Bruce Willis is not a good actor, he's a great actor and Pulp Fiction proved it.

No. Separate BDs can have separate threads.

The DVD was kinda of a poster child for EE. If they don't make a new master, we'll probably get the same one for the BD. However, content is king, so this is a must buy for me.

The EU release of Jackie has some compression artifacts due to being smashed onto a single-layer BD, but it looks like it comes from a clean master:

Give it a higher bitrate to breathe some more, and it'll probably be just fine.

Watched this today. Looks and sounds great, I don't see any obvious video processing at all. It is a fairly grainy film though, but all of it is intact.

Huh?

I was under the impression QT doesn't dig grainy filmstock.


And it's on a BD25?
