Please don't get mad at me for speaking the truth.  It is what it is.


You know nothing about what I know. You let us all in on your IQ. You know mine.


Read the line above my avatar.

I just know about what you posted.  I'm unconcerned with anything else.



Then you are speaking to me with zero knowledge. You have nothing of value to offer me. Good bye, troll.

Personally I've decided to wait until either there is a clear winner or until there are inexpensive and reliable multi-format players available.
You brought two too many.

Since I said I was only concerned with what you posted.  I guess that would mean you posted with zero knowledge.  I offered the truth...you refused.  Oh well...

I guess I'm the Truth Troll.  Answer 3 questions CORRECTLY and I shall let you pass.

The Complete Matrix Trilogy - Review

Quote:
Finally, compression artifacts are not an issue. There is not a moment of macroblocking or any noise, even on the many flat surfaces and static shots, which often hold on a particular image for what seems like minutes. And the source itself is beautifully maintained -- there is a bit of grain here or there, but it is clearly part of the intended effect and there are no instances of dirt or blemishes. This is really fantastic stuff -- 'The Matrix' trilogy easily earns an exemplary five-star video rating.


Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl - Review

Quote:
As was the case for Curse of the Black Pearl, Disney has blessed Dead Man’s Chest with a 50GB Blu-ray disc (BD50) and glorious AVC transfer in the 2.35:1 aspect ratio and the average bit rate ranges from 35 to 38 Mbps. In short ladies and gentleman Dead Man’s Chest movie gives us the new benchmark in picture quality for HD optical. While on par with Curse of the Black Pearl, this disc surpasses the video quality found on other reference discs such as Crank on Blu-ray and King Kong on HD DVD.


Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest - Review

For this transfer Disney went with 50GB Blu-ray disc (BD50) and glorious AVC transfer in the 2.35:1 aspect ratio and the average bit rate ranges from 35 to 38 Mbps. In short ladies and gentleman this Pirates movie gives us the new benchmark in picture quality for HD optical. Up until this point, both Crank on Blu-ray and King Kong on HD DVD were the films to beat in HD optical picture quality. I was fortunate enough to watch the new Matrix Collection HD DVD box set yesterday, and not even it rivals this Curse of the Black Pearl disc. At no point in viewing Pirates did I experience any macro blocking or any noise of any type. I could not believe this considering the amount of both bright and dark scenes and also the amount action sequences. Also the film was extremely sharp and clear and free of any film debris and I mean zero debris whatsoever. I have not experienced this as of yet on HD optical until the viewing of this disc. This disc also contained little to no film grain. Colors (and this is a very colorful film) were extremely vibrant and flesh tones were spot-on. This disc is truly an AMAZING benchmark in picture quality.


The Matrix Trilogy will be on Blu-ray.  Pirates of the Caribbean will NOT be on HD DVD.
