Has anyone ever use Dinosaur from Disney to compare Blu Ray to Standard DVD? I always use this movie as a picture quality.


Any thoughts on how this might compare visually on Blu Ray as to others like 5th element, black hawk down, crank, and others you may have mentioned.

I have both the DVD version and the BD version and have to say hands down the PS3 version is a thousand times better...


I have a Sony DVP-NS75H SD-DVD upconverter which does an amazing job upconverting to 1080i and 720p with SD-DVD's. I have enjoyed all my SD-DVD's very much on my 720p Samsung HLR5087W "Kirk" pedestal model using the Sony. However hands down Blu-Ray in general (the newer releases) have far surpassed any SD-DVD's I have in my collection. Dinosaur is a great reference SD-DVD and does look great using the equipment I mention above. However once you watch the movie on Blu-Ray you do notice all the artifacts and limitations SD-DVD and mpeg2 really had. The biggest change for me was the sound quality of the Blu-Ray version of Dinosaur. You have to switch it to the uncompressed, however the difference is huge..


I did see some artifacting on the Blu-Ray version since it did use 25GB Bd disc and mpeg2. However to complain about a few scenes is pointless. THe movie looked and sounded great and definately better than the SD-DVD. Well worth the money. If you want a reference title for Blu-Ray, get Black Hawk Down. And after downloading the Casino Royal trailer on the PS3, that looks to be a movie that is tier 0 quality for sure and probably going to be the next "reference" movie for Blu-Ray as "The Fifth Element Superbit" was for SD-DVD...
