Very good deal, Im very disapointed in blu-ray. The picture quality is good but at the expense of excessive grain in live feature movies. Which is why I like to get my sister, animation movies as they look best. Having said that, I guess this deal is very good if you just want one of the blu-rays for a present maybe.

The excessive grain is only there because of lazy transfers.

Due ot the HUGE backlog of DVD and VHS movies, they need to release literally HUNDREDS of blu rays every month to have any chance of ever catching up. So what happens is they are taking no care in the transfer to Blu Ray.

The big releases that have had some care and attention are simply stunning, but there are too many that are poor.

Casino royale, Transformers revenge of the fallen. If you look closley in enough in soom scenes that annoying daft grain is there. once you spot it, you have a knack for spotting it when you dont want to.

I.e revenge of the fallen blu-ray, when shias parents are getting him ready b4 the fire in the house there is evident grain in the background.

You all don't understand film.

When films are shot on 35mm (which is a fav film type of Michael Bay and other big directors) the grain is actually part of the picture - you can't get rid of the grain because its meant to be there. Its like saying the Mona Lisa isn't photo realistic. If you remove the grain but Digital Noise Reduction (DNR) you smooth the picture over and give a finish that the director DID NOT intend.

Agreed. But EXCESSIVE grain is where the original grain is amplified due to lack of care in the transfer.

Wall-E was fantastic.

Maybe try just watching the movie instead of standing an inch away from the screen looking for flaws in the picture? :whistling:

Not that hot a deal though as they've been cheaper in other deals so I'm not gonna vote either way.

Nothing new here. All are either available cheaper from Zavvi/The Hut, or for one penny more at HMV. And whichever one of those it is, Quidco brings it below the Amazon price. As such I don't see why this should be hot; these Blu Rays have been available at these prices for a while now.

You may be mistaking film grain for digital noise. Movies on Blu-ray encoded with the MPEG-2 codec tend to exaggerate the grain present in the original transfer; examples of this can be found in movies released when the Blu-ray format was first launched.

There is an excellent discussion on the subject here.

Back onto original subject:-D Seems like a good deal to me although with piracy so widespread i can imagine prices falling further.

Wall-E was fantastic.


wall-e rocks!

even the dark knight has a grain!

also bbc's planet earth has fantastic picture apart from a couple of scenes where it is very grainy is this because of the footage being zoomed in when the director wants a close up but hasn't filmed one so they zoom in on the wide shot?

do i make sense? lol

:stocking:

I wouldn't necessarily call these kids films.

I have no kids but own all of these on blu-ray as they are great films.

And if you think these look good on blu, just wait til you see Up. Phenomenal.
