Forgive me for asking, but is this 'true' blu ray? Just a bit like HD, doesnt the original film need to be recorded in HD....

So how can a film made many years ago, when the technology wasn't around use a high definition picture?

Die Hard 1 and 2 - £9.75 each at Foxy, with 3% Quidco
(although you'll have to wait until they're in stock!)

Although this is a good deal, the video transfers of these movies on blu-ray are not very good at all, I suspect they will be reissued in the future with a proper job done on them.

They "remaster" it, run it through a few processes, clean it up etc. Sometimes it looks good, sometimes it doesn't. I always think it's worth hunting down reviews of these older films first to find out what the picture quality is like.

Seems to have gone, also die hard 2 to up to £16 :(

People need to think before the splash out on bluray, older titles are not true HD they are tweaked with a little bit of upscale.

Only newer films will be true -hi def-

If you have a decent tv or dvd player they will upscale a dvd just as well.

Something to think about :-)

Thanks for that.

Personally speaking then, you might as well get the DVD for cheaper in my opinion. I think its only worth buying in Blu Ray if it was done originally.
#13
Old films can look fantastic in HD if the proper time and attention is given to the transfer, for examples, 2001, The Shining, Mad Max 2 & The Warriors all look superb in HD.

Not sure if that's true. Although High-def is only now available to consumers at a lower price point, it doesn't mean they haven't been using High-def recording equipment for many years.

Just a thought...

The "tape" it was recorded on was in fact high definition (higher in fact), this is how classics such as "blade runner" and "the thing" look amazing and sharp .

You are wrong and should learn to be informed about information you spout on forums tut tut

Just out of interest, what date onwards would you suggest that if sold as Blu-Ray format, would be true bluray?

But it does.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High-definition_television

High Definition only started being used in the 1990's and that wasn't on a massive scale (we're talking small test productions).

Edit: I maybe getting confused a bit...I'll have a read into things.

Not true. Obviously a newer film, digitally filmed with HD sound is going to give superior quality on Blu-Ray or HD-DVD however if an older film is filmed on 35mm or better then it is possible to convert to 2X or 4X 1080p resolution, which is true hi def. You only have to look at the HD version of Blade Runner, which in my opinion, is one of the best Hi Def discs currently available.

Best way to make sure old movies look good on hd media is to check the reviews, but just to point blank say that all older films are not true hi def is nonsense and misleading.

This post is so not true, so misinformed. Why do people not read up before inflicting utter cr*p on others
#21
Agreed. Optical film quality > digital film quality, forever.
#22
You would be best checking out reviews for old films on the new formats before buying them, just like DVD the studios will throw any version out for a quick buck then reissue it a later date. Full Metal Jacket is on it's second hd release already.

This is the site i use to check out the pq of the films on blue-ray,

http://www.highdefdigest.com/

In case anybody is interested this is the website I use when checking out if its worth buying older films on HD / Blu Ray. Just put in the name of the film you are after in the search option and it will bring up a full reveiew of the fim if available, letting you know matks out of 5 for the actual film itself, the picture conversion and the sound conversion.

Hope this helps some of you.::thumbsup:

Thats how I understood it - although high def recording is newer, most older films have been recorded in a format that is far superior to the commercially available vhs or dvds. A remaster from good originals will 'open up' a film to offer better quality in a similar way to a CD can be made from a good original vinyl masters. Obviously, they cant add information that isnt there, but they can ensure that everything in the original master has been transfered.

Rubbish,

The resolution of film is much much higher than that of Blu ray.

Can you imagine what a film at a cinema on a 30 foot screen would look like if it wasn't even 1920*1080 resolution, it would look terrible. Each pixel would be nearly a centimeter wide LOL!

Old films were filmed in a much higher resolution that HD so transfering them to blu ray or HD DVD will actually be a downscale in quality not an upscale. 35mm film has the equivalent of 6000 lines of data compared with the 1080 lines of HD.
#28
Well said social lurker. Many people seem to be confused about the whole HD thing.
Even old films like for example Jailhouse Rock from the mid 50s were filmed in a VERY high resolution.
The time they (directors/producers etc) filmed the movie, the hardware they use(d) (cameras etc) recorded the acting in a resolution
that´s way higher than the resolutions we get on HD and Bluray discs.
But since we only had SD tvs then they had to compress the format a lot to fit the lines and discs.
With HD screens now they can show us the movie in a quality closer to the way it was originally filmed.
(still has to be compressed though to fit on the disc)
Even the old films were recorded in a very high resolution.

Format is fine but the movie is poor. Action scenes are ok though the plot is just wayward.

I got this before christmas and was really looking forward to hidef die hard (I'm a big fan).

Man was I DISSAPOINTED :thinking:

TBH its looks not better than the SDDVD did upscaled throught the PS3/360.

Bladerunner on the other hand looks absolutely GREAT.....:w00t:

Maybe something wrong with your setup somewhere along the line. Even my wife can tell the difference when we watch a HD DVD and that is saying something, she can even tell that its HD sound aswell.

Are you watching on a 32"?

Also other things such as turning off all the noise reduction rubbish and any picture processing that your TV may be applying. Also turn the sharpness setting right down to nearly nil.

Other thann that your looking at if you have the resolution output in your PS3 to match your TV, that your using HDMI etc etc etc, or maybe your eyes?

Then again you could be right, this disc could just be one of those bad HD discs, not all of them are WOW discs in HD. I found superman returns to be one of those, and Terminator 3 was poor aswell.

Have to agree. Received the 5 disk blu-ray edition of Bladerunner the other day and I never thought it could look so good. Blown away by it to be honest. (£17 from amazon.com delivered!).
#39
Any honest review of blu ray DH1 and DH2?? How is the quality, voice? Any visible difference between SD DVDs? If someone could tell sth
I am huge fan of J McLane, but don't know if the Bluray will be much better than upscaled SD...

Is it as good as remastered Bladerunner :thumbsup:? Or just sd on bluray :whistling: ??

Thanks!
