Discussion on all things DVD and Blu-Ray related
Just being released but according to asiandvdguide, the former is just a pretty poor upscale. Scott will probably have a lot more info about this. And they might be region locked to A! Why do they keep locking blu-rays?
I don't have Blu-Ray guys.
Although the BLs are genuine HD, I reckon the DVDs look better - namely the colours on 'TBB' where it looks like someone spilled a jar of beetroot, whereas 'Fist Of Fury's main problem is that doesn't look as sharp. I wonder if K&R are using a studio that's doing a poor job on converting the HD D5 masters Fortune Star provides?
Of course, if you can get past the video, then the audio is still lacking mono and you've got to put up with that bullshit remix.
It's a hard decision. I posted some comments and links about them (http://adg.invisionzone.com/index.php?showtopic=2961&st=60).
I'm sticking with DVD then, save my pennies for more DVD's
I seek not to know all the answers, but to understand the questions.

Films to watch 68 its going up DOH!
sorry to bump such an old thread but I did actually watch the OUATIC and PS Trilogy blurays. The screen grabs looked horrible but Ive concluded the OUATIC set is definitely HD. when you watch it in motion theres no denying it. Pt 1 has been heavily post processed, degarained and colors boosted, resulting in a transfer similar to Disney's Drunken Master 2 bluray. Pts 2 & 3 look a bit better with some actual grain structure detail, even if its minimal.
Police Story I & 2 look pretty bad and might as well be upscales but Pt 3 is definitiely HD. As a standalone release, I'd actually recommend PS3.
