    Default 'Twister' - High-Def Digest Review

    Kenneth's review of 'Twister' is up. He says fans will be pleased with this HD DVD's above-average video transfer, powerful Dolby TrueHD audio track, and a generous collection of supplements. Worth a look if you're still in the market for HD DVDs.

    Right on cue. No mention of its Blu-ray counterpart though. Thanks!

    it says that there's little to no difference between the two.

    I got it and I love it. It made me crank the sound more today than even seeing it on DVD seven years ago.

    Thumbs up

    This recently came on TV, I had forgotten how good it was, great film indeed, So it's definitely on my "To Buy" list.


    Just about to check out that link Jed, thanks for posting it.

    For whatever reason I got a skip on it around 1 hour and 27 minute mark. This usually happens for me on combos (HD-A35) that were made circa the Good Shepherd and Children of Men era but never on a plain HD DVD. Anyway, not sure whether I want to go through the hassle of exchanging it.

    Sound is good - video, well, I guess in the end it was a mid 1990s movie.

    Just watched our "Twister" HD-DVD. Absolutely terrific and loads of fun. Excellent PQ & AQ.
    Once again, as usual, there is no need or point to replacing this HD-DVD with its blu-ray counterpart as there is no improvement to be gained.

    I had rented the BD of TWISTER before I later purchased the HD DVD. I have to agree with you. No differences in audio/video.

    Why is the HD DVD of this movie so expensive on Amazon? Is it considered a collector's item because it was Warner's last release? The Blu-Ray is only $9 new and this is going for $19 and up.

    Yeah - for some reason this HD-DVD title is way overpriced on EBay also. The BD and HD-DVD of this title appear to be virtually identical, as far as pq, aq and extras are concerned based on the reviews. I can't speak personally, since I only have the HD-DVD.
