Hi Definition

blu-ray-vs-hd-dvd.jpg 

There is all this talk about HD-DVD and Blu-Ray, to me they are the same high quality movies and tv series that I have been seeing for the past year. I have an HD-DVD player so I decided to purchase a few old school movies that I love in HD-DVD since I could just add them to my library of movies.

Over the past week we watched the first movie which is Army of Darkness which is a cult classic from the 80s. I didn’t know what to expect but I was extremely surprised by the quality, I have to say that I give Hi Def movies a 10/10, and I could see so much in this old movie, of course the special affects weren’t too special but still the quality of the movie itself is unquestionable.

When we watched Lethal Weapon it looked like a high quality Indie movie, it was amazing to see Mel Gibson so young, and I do enjoy Danny Glover, he is one of the actors that I really liked form the 80s. We really enjoyed this movie and the quality the movie was amazing and nothing beats a good action movie from the 80s.

If you are thinking about going with Hi-Definition then it isn’t a mistake since it just lets you enjoy all these old movies that you love. Next on the list is Blade Runner, I have it in HD-DVD but I have to watch it with the right people, I haven’t seen it before so I don’t want to ruin my first time watching it.

  1. At CES they were saying that some major players were buying into Blu-Ray …

    Marzouq .. Throw your HD DVD Player because there is some Bad Bad Bad News for HD-DVD .. every major movie company had turned to Blu-Ray exclusively and the last of them is Warner Brothers .. so all they have is Universal Studios and Dreamworks which the media believe that they will turn soon enough and that will end the wars between the HD-DVD and Blu-ray. I have to admit that I see no flaws in HD-DVD movies except they didn’t do great marketing for their DVD’s like Blu-Ray did.

    yeah most of the major studios that backed HD-DVD are switching to blu-ray… well maybe in the next year we can see who wins the format war but i guess so far blu-ray is winning not because of the quality but for the deals thier striking

    yes, actually HD-DVD well be the next Betamax after major studios drop the support for hd-dvd with many studios coming for the same decision, now microsoft is thinking to bring blue-ray to xbox.

  5. well blue ray has 70% of the hi def market right now so HD DVD would be kicked out the curb soon enough I’m afraid. but they are both essentially same quality

  6. lfc-q8

    to be frank i tried both of them and i like hd dvd more

  7. Laialy: Yup a lot are switching over!

    Q80 In Denver: I won’t be throwing them away, its too early to throw in the towel but things seem to be going in the way of Blu Ray thats for sure.

    lfc-Q8: that is true, but HD-DVD is still cheaper with a lot of their players, they are trying to lock it in from the cheaper side.

    Knafa: But there is a new model for the XBox 360 that will have the HD-DVD built in, so time will tell!

    TAT: they are the same quality so its just a matter of time! We shall see!

    lfc-Q8: Same here!

  8. Q80 In Denver

    lfc-q8 : I agree .. HD DVD’s is slightly sharper than Blu-Ray DVD’s .. News >> Toshiba will start to sell their HD DVD players for $150 !! Starting Next month !

  9. Q80 in Denver: I don’t think thats going to turn the tide at this point!

    N: Damn! lol
