Watched this the other night purely to reminisce to the Queen soundtrack. Awesome.

I brought this a while ago and it has to be the worst blu-ray/high def film I have seen, and I think the film itself is great but when the picture changes from one camera in Hi-def to another camera in Standard-def it almost becomes un-watchable. In fact I seem to remember not finishing watching it as it was so bad!!!

Good Price, [SIZE="5"]Bad[/SIZE] version

so no heat from me

AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!!!!

LOL. Its ignorant comments like that which make me laugh. So you reckon the film makers witched from "HD" cameras to "SD" cameras for different shots? Clueless. I would bet it has more to do with the film stock on a low-budget film of this age.

You're like those people who say that old films can't look good on BD because they weren't "filmed in HD". The resolution of film far outclasses that of Full HD, so pretty much any film from the 1930s onwards can look good on BD, just as long as the film stock has been taken care of over the years & attention has been paid to the digital transfer.

The deal on the Texco website does not give any information about the product - how do we know we're getting the tin version. It is entirely possible that it could have been discontinued and a standard BD case used instead...

And you have no manners. You suffer from lack of oxygen way up there on your mountain of knowledge?

Maybe his explanation for the drop in quality was incorrect, that still doesn't negate the fact it's there. :roll:

Actually I do know what I am talking about

I am trying to describe it in laymans terms, perhaps you would prefer if i used the word almost?
would that suit you better??

I have never said "that old films can't look good on BD because they weren't "filmed in HD" because I know that film stock is far superior than tv/video stock, look at the Wizard of Oz, one of the best films on blu-ray because the transfer from film stock to digital has been done with care and not just thrown together like Highlander just for the sake of getting it out on Blu-ray.

and if you are going to generalise people without knowing them then I suspect you have not even seen the blu-ray version anyway!!

Thank you! One of my favourite films of all time. The review of the disc looked excellent too.

I have the steelbook bd of Highlander. Yes, the quality does drop for a few frames on certain scenes, but in other scenes (for example the Scotland flashbacks) the pq is stunning. This is certainly the best that Highlander has ever looked and I would say it is a must-buy for fans. Heat added - if this is the steelbook, the price is fantastic!

Sorry to pick you up on this.. as you may have nearly conviced people you know what you were talking about.

High Definition Video is measured by the number of lines on screen, not pixel count, most commonly 720 progressive, or 1080 interlaced. ( 1080 progressive for 'Full HD' ), either way it is 720 or 1080 Lines.

35mm Film uses typically 1000 lines.. Vs HD 1080 - Thus there is a slight difference in resolution.

Therefore to state that 'film' ouclasses the resolution of Full HD is completely incorrect, 1080i/p can have a higher perceived resolution than 35mm Film.

This is not the Steelbook edition, wish I'd double checked before cancelling my amazon one Doh!

Still @ £5.77 less quidco, at least its cheap enough

This is incorrect - see this article regarding equivalent film definition to video:

Oh the invertitable knowledge of wikipedia, which can be edited by anyone...

Also, you don't seem to appreciate that the wiki article relates to pixels, you cannot count pixels on an analogue format.

Oh, and since you cited a source, heres one of mine

http://www.filmschooldirect.com/sample_lessons/sample_lesson_HD_vs_35mm.htm

perhaps you care to point out where on the wiki page i am wrong?

The point is that Analogue doesn't have "lines" either so you can't compare. Either way, it doesn't matter how old a film is, If it was recorded on film then its quality is down to the decisions made by the cinematographer and then the people who master the film onto a digital format. It is not "lower definition" if it was recorded on 35mm film. Since when have you seen "jaggies" in a pre digital era film when projected from a 35mm print!!

It is not "lower definition" if it was recorded on 35mm film. !


I didn't claim that was necessarily the case, i was correcting the statement made by Ninjamonkeyuk.

"The resolution of film far outclasses that of Full HD"

For the Love of all things digital man! It really doesnt ruddy well matter. The quality drops in some scenes as expressed by some people who already have it.

This is not a board for who knows what more A or B. If you dont have construcitve comments, keep them to yourself.

You dictate what the boards are and are not for?

Sorry, who are you again?

And what.. your post is constructive??? oh the irony....

just because someone posted the quality drops, that makes them correct, and we all move on in ignorance.. right?
#22

ahem... it is called "debate" and is helpful information for people deciding if this is a bargain. If the quality is poor because of the mastering it will help people make more informed decisions and maybe hold off until it has been re-remastered (again) and re-released again.
#24
Sorry to add my 2 cents on this comment, "The resolution of film far outclasses that of Full HD". Now JayJay, I took what he meant as this... film can be scanned at higher resolutions than "Full HD" which is 1920x1080p, e.g. I remember reading about the bond films being scanned at 4k a few years back.
