Cheaper in Gamestation at £15 ..... if you can find it. I can't, so this is the best for me.

thats funny cos ive ordered about 12 hd dvds in the last 3 days and i ordered Batman Begins and Blade Runner last night from HMV but first i had to check back through my confirmation emails as i couldnt remember if id already ordered Batman elsewhere :oops:

can someone tell me if this is worth getting, i mean, is the HD version so much better than normal version upscaled, already got the box set on normal DVD. not tried it yet in my HD player, but i did try Lord of the Rings and that was WOW upscaled.

Ive seen both, mine plays upscaled currently and looks great, yes the HD version is better and the detail is clearer, but the quality and depth of colour is fab on both (my opinion). If you're happy with the upscaled picture quality i would be tempted to stick, but if the price continues to tumble, i wouldnt resist it, at say a tenner.

Hd dvd only benefits you on old films

but well worth a buy

- Why would you say that?

It's true some transfers are better than others but that's about the effort put in by the particular movie studio and the quality of the transfer.

It has certainly nothing to do with the age of a movie.

'Elizabeth the Golden Age' for instance is a pretty recent movie and it looks truly outstanding on HD DVD.

Similarly 'Casablanca' is a pretty old movie but equally looks outstanding in HD DVD, even if it is 'just' black & white.

This does not just apply to HD DVD either, Blu-ray for instance has rather famously got a line of real stinkers (so bad they re-worked & re-released the worst = 'The Fifth Element').

Im saying that recent transfers of dvds look good compared to hd dvd - its only the old transfers of dvd that will benefit it

Not talking about the age of the film but the age of the transfer

What utter rubbish that statement is. :roll:

:?

I think HD benefits newer films if anything - with a better transfer available, sticking 1920x1080 rather than 720x576 (720x480 for NTSC), you get a huge improvement, without noticing any flaws.

T2 for example, you can see make up lines, because they didn't think anyone would ever see it that clearly. But something like Transformers looks stunning.

Old films benefit, but I would say newer films have the potention to benefit more.

Unless you mean remastering. This isn't exclusive to HD resolutions, films can be remasters onto DVD as well, which makes a big difference, and simply has to be done on old films on HD, whereas on DVD they could probably get away with using an older print.

Ok

I have a billy madison dvd which i got in 2002 and it looked fine to me till i bought it on hd dvd and the comparision is appauling -- hd is amazing compared to it

But comparing my planet earth dvd to my hd dvd version tbh its not bad on the eye but hd dvd is better

My point was hd benefits old films as they are pulled out and remastered so look better whereas the films out now look good as they were released now and a good job has been done

i think you all misunderstood me

You think planet earth SD looks not much diffrent than the HD version? You rather have a bad set-up or bad eye site. Planet Earth Hd got voted the best hd disc of last year. I have both versions and there is a big diffrence in the clarity between the 2.

With regards to Planet Earth HD-DVD...

I'm looking to get the box set and have found this...

play.com/DVD…DVD

amazon.co.uk/Pla…8-1

Play has it at 4 discs and Amazon is 5. Which one is correct? :thumbsup:

Some of the imports only have 4 discs (us/aus etc) but the proper UK one has 5 and the commentry from David Attenborough.
