Description:
A hip, heart-pounding combination of action, music, and incredible aerial photography helped make Top Gun the blockbuster hit of 1986. Top Gun takes a look at the danger and excitement that awaits every pilot at the Navy's prestigious fighter weapons school. Tom Cruise is superb as Maverick Mitchell, a daring young fighter who's out to become the best. And Kelly McGillis sizzles as the civilian instructor who teaches Maverick a few things you can't learn in a classroom.

any reason for the cold rating? can anyone provide a better price or is this a case of people not having an HD player?
#2
Even though im not after buying it i thought it was good price so i voted it hot :thumbsup:
#3
They vote cold because they are sad ****

and they can't afford most of the deals on here or a hd dvd player.

bitter twisted xx
#4
I suspect they might have voted cold because a tenner is a lot to pay for such an old movie that is available on DVD for a fraction of that.

yes made in the eighties yes? so how can it be HD as it was filmed for the technology around those days, so £10 for a film that is nothing but the DVD upscaled and labeled HD is total rip off.

if i am wrong please correct me as thats how i see it.
#6

Sorry totally wrong, this is a common myth that old films cant be HD

When a film is transferred to VHS/DVD/HD-DVD/Blu it is put through a film scanner which does what is says on the tin scans a film and turns it into the format the scanner copes with.

35mm film (Most films are made in this) has a limit of around 2160p I have seen quoted before so it will cope with standards after 1080p

Top Gun was made in Super 35 which a lot of modern films use:

"film stock" is by its very nature alraedy high defintion, therefore its just a case of transferring it to a digital medium. This is why some of the best looking discs are such oldies as the Searchers and Errol Flynns Robin Hood. The problems are when poor versions are used for the transfer, usually they degrade due to being incorrectly stored

Reading this comment I'm not amazed that neither HD formats are really taking off given people's knowledge on this "technology"

Let's clarify... a movie shot on film 35mm by default will benefit from the HD format. Do your old camera pictures blown up to poster size look like **** compared to new Digital ones? Did the movies you watched 10-20 years ago look like upscaled dvds projected onto a cinema screen? Did they ever?

HD DVD and Blu Ray may bring out the imperfections if the source is bad but generally it will still look a damn site better than any standard DVD....
