The first film is, well, rough, and is barely an upgrade from the DVD. This film is pretty soft, with slightly better color saturation, but only a few scenes here and there are better than the DVD. Think Clockwork Orange PQ.
The second film is a little better again with better clarity and color saturation, but still nothing to write home about. Reminds me of the Species transfer.
The 5.1 remixes are laughably bad, so no improvement on the audio side either.
Overall, there is some difference between the DVD and Blu, but for $2 more than the Blu ray you can pick up the entire series on DVD; so, although it pains me, I really can't recommend this disc.

Well from that comparison the BD has better colors and contrast.
Does anyone know if the disc is Region-Free???

It looks like SD DVD compared to SD DVD upconverted 1080i.
I would never buy the Blu-ray for such a miniscule "upgrade". I don't even see the upgrade, I see a red push and slightly cropped image on the Blu-ray.
I still see a substantial difference in those screen shots.

Anyone have trouble playing back Sister Street Fighter (Blu-ray)? I noticed choppy, almost stuttering playback during several chapters throughout the complete movie. Definitely NOT a layer change.
I use a Playstation 3 and own close to 140 Blu-rays. This is the 1st film which produced choppy/stuttering playback.
Anyone else notice this? Also, please indicate which Blu-ray player you're using.
Anyone else experience the stuttering playback with Sister Street Figter (Blu-ray)? Thinking of returning it to Amazon...

I have the same problem as you're describing. I think its an issue with the encoding of the video file. I'm hoping that a future PS3 system upgrade will fix the problem, but I'm not optimistic - it's such a small title. I'm thinking of contacting BCI about it, but again, with such a niche title, I wonder if they'll bother doing a recall or even a reissue...
