Goos price.
Watched this film last night. Wife fell asleep after half an hour but I really enjoyed it, its a mans film really. I watched on a 50" plasma through a PS3 so upscaled to 720p, the picture was very impressive.

Visually stunning film, but...well...it's actually quite boring really. Wouldn't watch it more than once.
#9
Nice price! But does anyone know where to get a cheap HD DVD version, as it is over £20 at play and HMV.

£16.95 at Virgin - 10% more off if you have a Virgin Credit Card (I think?)

Really? I remember loads of women raving about this movie on various messageboards/blogging sites. Had been to see it a few times as I recall. Although it may not have been the plot that attracted them...

I was surprised at this film - it's not bad but it's not in the league of a Troy or Gladiator - which is what the blurb led me to expect. Watch it but don't buy it.

Unless, of course, you're really into half naked men in sandals......:giggle:

I know it won't bother a lot of people, but that is for Region 3. (South Asia) and is also in NTSC format, rather than PAL.

A Region 2 (UK, Europe & Japan) one is listed at £14.99 with free delivery, which does make the Morrisons offer a good buy I reckon.

It's not meant to be in the same league that. Some people seem to forget that although it's based on a true story, it's based on the comic book version .

This is probably opening a whole new can of worms - but Region 3/Region 1/NTSC/PAL - what difference does it make if you have a compatible TV and DVD player?

Asda is on my way home, any idea if they are matching this price at all?

Just bought myself the HD-DVD/DVD combo disc of 300 from Movietyme for £17.99.

Haven't got a HDTV yet but I thought what the hell why not think ahead. I now have the normal DVD for my current TV and HD-DVD for if I ever upgrade. The DVD is a R1 disc but so are most of my films (HD-DVD isn't region locked).

Probably marginal.

PAL offers slightly better quality (at SD DVD spec) video. However, PAL has to be sped up slightly because of the frame rate differences between film and PAL.

As to how many DVDs (and videos before them) had the pitch corrected, I'm not sure...

Slightly is understating it a bit I would say (20% resolution difference) and while it is true you end up with a slightly shorter film on PAL thanks to the framerate differences, it's much better than jerky panning on NTSC in fast movies thanks to the doubling up of frames.

Each to their own, but I find NTSC disks VERY irritating.

Edit: One other oddness I noticed on NTSC disks is the way certain players handle the resolution difference. They put the top and bottom of the picture perfectly on the screen in BUT that means to retain the aspect ratio they crop huge lumps from the sides.....

Anyone know when this promotion finishes?

This is the second week they have been selling their chart DVD's fro £9

If it runs into next week hopefully get Fantastic Four - Rise of the Silver Surfer
2 disc edition for £9 which would be sweet.

I'm hoping for a £9 Spiderman 3.....

I must agree. There's something quite strange about watching NTSC material.

I know the spec, that's not the point - after all, I did allude to the difference in resolution. Point remains, though, that most will probably not notice the difference where that's concerned. They are more likely to notice the difference between an anamorphic DVD and non-anamorphic DVD.

And where that's concerned, many people have their Sky / freeview / DVD boxes not set optimally for their TV's capabilities, either in terms of signal or aspect ratio capabilities.

Shengis

And in some cases, audio where the pitch is off.

What sort of display equipment are you watching on (monitor, CRT, LCD, plasma...), and what's it's framerate capabilities? NTSC doesn't necessarily have to have pulldown - it would depend on the source - not everything is (was) film.

Shengis
Each to their own, but I find NTSC disks VERY irritating.


I don't, personally. I don't prefer them - that's not what I was saying. I was merely pointing out that your average viewer is probably not going to notice much difference in it. Pulldown is probably the most annoying thing for some, as opposed to things to do with resolution.

Overscan and TVs using some degree of zoom always happens. 2.35 stuff is one thing, but there's a whole deal of stuff that's not exactly 16:9 aspect ratio that's shown with no letterboxing on widescreen TVs.
#25

Which is basically what I was saying. But also having a higher res is an advantage. Most R1 disks that people buy will be from film stock rather than TV Broadcast I would have thought, so that is a major downside to R1 disks. Now we've got onto the pulldown issue I can see people digging out their R1 disks and moaning at something they previously subconsiously ignored. Nothing like knowing about something to make it more obvious and annoying lol.

Shengis

Well you basically responded to a few things that I wrote - and as you go on to mention the resolution.

Personally, I've never had that much of an issue with pulldown. I do wonder, though, how many people have their multi-region DVD players force the output to PAL, when they're playing NTSC discs.

Shengis
But also having a higher res is an advantage.


Well no doubt theoretically - but as I said, I highly suspect most people won't notice. And many will be oblivious to anamorphic output, and quite possibly not have their equipment configured to exploit it (as an example, many semi-recent 4:3 TVs have widescreen modes).

Shengis
Most R1 disks that people buy will be from film stock rather than TV Broadcast I would have thought, so that is a major downside to R1 disks.


Mastering will be the biggest factor in the quality, I would have thought. As to what people will buy, these days, I suspect there's less and less call for people opting for R1 (or other regions) releases as in days gone by. The release schedules don't tend to be so wildly apart, and features similar if not the same. TV series on DVD is a slightly different thing, though - often, still, there's quite a wide gap between the release dates between here and the US.

Shengis
Now we've got onto the pulldown issue I can see people digging out their R1 disks and moaning at something they previously subconsiously ignored.


As I said, though, I suspect there's some that are forcing a player-imposed conversion to something like PAL output. That may well cloud peoples' perception of there views in watching NTSC stuff.

Personally I think it's rather moot, though. I can never recall watching an Region 1 / NTSC DVD and thinking it's awful quality because it's NTSC. I may have watched DVDs that I thought were poor quality because the mastering could obviously have been improved, or would have looked better if it had been an anamorphic transfer, but I don't recall watching anything and looking at it thinking "If only it were PAL...".
