Thread: Tier System for Blu-ray
09-03-2008 06:52 PM #451
Just got Point Break and being a huge fan of the film, I’d have to say a major improvement over the DVD and worth the upgrade. No regrets on the double dip this time.
Tier 3 is a great choice. Maybe bump it up to the middle, for a really nice transfer.

Added to list:
What Happens in Vegas, mid-low Tier 2
Heroes: Season One, low Tier 2
Heroes: Season Two, mid Tier 2
Point Break, bumped up a few spaces

Transformers - Mid to high tier 1. There was one soft scene with shia and megan, and a bit of grain in the low light, but otherwise flawless.

Transformers, top of Tier 1 -- based on two votes
The Mummy, low Tier 1
The Mummy Returns, high Tier 1
The Counterfeiters, Tier 2
The Perfect Storm, mid Tier 4
Ocean's Eleven, top of Tier 2
Hannah Montana, mid Tier 1 -- I swear my daughter really wanted to watch it.
The Secret, bottom Tier 4 -- unimpressive and very soft PQ but give it credit for not showing any artifacts
Then She Found Me, bottom Tier 3 -- also unimpressive but better color rendition

Kill Bill vol. 1. I would say high tier 2
09-11-2008 08:42 PM #457
I vote to move transformers up to somewhere in tier 0 one scene with softness/grain dosent lower the tier ranking for me over all it reference quality.
The Next avengers: Mid tier 2 much better than the other marvel animated transfers but not quite as good as other 2d releases still a really solid release.

just watched Seven Years in Tibet. I thought it was better than a mid Tier 2, just my .02
09-14-2008 11:01 PM #459
Kill Bill Vol. 1, high Tier 2
Next Avengers, mid Tier 2
Married Life, mid Tier 2
Baby Mama, mid-high Tier 3
The Fall, high Tier 1
Moved Tansformers to low Tier 0 and Seven Years In Tibet up a few notches.

Iron Man - Tier 1, below I Am Legend. This one is definitely high tier 1. Some may say Tier 0. Personally, I think it's better than Transformers, which I don't think belongs in Tier 0, more mid-teir 1.
The Dead Pool - Tier 3, below The Devil's Own
Ocean's Twelve - Tier 3, above Assassination of Jesse James
Speed Racer - Tier 0, below Dead Man's Chest. This is definitely one of the top 3 "live action" movies yet. I think it's better than I, Robot, but not quite as good as Dead Man's Chest.
Cool Hand Luke - Tier 3, above Bonnie & Clyde

Speed Racer - Second the notion on mid-to-high tier 0
Transformers - agreed, it is high tier 1 material, and with it's low-level noise in the dark scenes, it doesn't deserve to be in with the likes of Crank and Narnia. Pristine otherwise though.

Iron Man, high Tier 1 -- early vote is in
The Dead Pool, high Tier 3
Ocean's Twelve, low Tier 3
Cool Hand Luke, mid Tier 3
U-571, low Tier 2 -- very nice and audio is definitely demo worthy
The Forbidden Kingdom, low Tier 1 -- mediocre film, but beautiful PQ
88 Minutes, mid Tier 4 -- both bad film and bad PQ
The Love Guru, high Tier 2 -- what's with all the bad films but great PQ lately?
Speed Racer, high Tier 0 -- just watched last night and agree PQ is simply incredible, but too bad the movie itself was awful and painful to watch - demo quality otherwise.

Just picked up the Godfather Trilogy. First impression is WOW. This is what HDM is all about for me. Only watched the The Godfather so far, but man is it a great transfer!
Mid Tier 1: under Rambo.
I'll post the others as I watch.

The Godfather Part II: The brightening that Peter talked about is noticeable in both films. More so in II, but I don't necessarily view this as a bad thing. This is certainly the best both films have ever looked. Part II appears more softer than The Godfather, but I’m still amazed by the clarity and overall transfers are pristine. Paramount really did put everything into this one and who can doubt Coppola's genius.
Having just recently watched The Godfather and Part II on DVD in anticipation of the Blu-ray release, I have to say the transfers are tremendous. I suggest that others do the same in order to fully appreciate what's going on here.
Same Vote, mid Tier 1: under Rambo. And in fact might it be better than that.
I might even go as far as to call these disc's reference, because I'll certainly show off these transfers.
