Looking for the best DVD's for checking calibration and showing off the picture quality of CRT projectors. I do not own any superbit DVD's, but expect I will be purchasing some soon if quality warrants.
The story to XXX wasn't great, but the effects were good. Acting also sorta sucked, imho. My wife agreed, but she liked the effects and how it was shot. and she usually never comments on things like that.
Gotta get me a copy of the DVD to add to my reference stack I think.
Do you want to blow people away with what CRT can do ? Don't use DVD at all ! The best images I've ever seen on any video display, ever, I saw recently in my own home and I'm convinced that this is attributed to having a well set up CRT and a great source and not just a great source.
1) Snow Falling On Cedars
4) Fight Club
5) Time Machine
Don't select scenes to cover deficiencies, you won't have to. There is no fixed pixel device available to consumers, right now, that can compete against CRT in any of these. These films I did not select ,they are replete with dark scenes, and the depth and beauty is just an awesome thing because of that. This is the reason I'm not ready to give up on CRT.These films are what film is now.
It looks like they are no longer selling the original Drumline DVD and have instead released 2 versions (one of the actual movie, the other pan-n-scan). I doubt that they have done anything to the transfer (probably just a packaging / marketing decision).
