"Spider-man" Box Set First Blu-ray Review
 
Hey check out the leading Australian DVD, Blu-ray, and HD-DVD review web site for the first review of "Spider-man" on Blu-ray.

It covers the disc in some detail, and they will be covering all three this week.

It can be found at www.michaeldvd.com.au

Spidey 3 region free
 
Hey Nickdalodger.

I have the box set, and all three Spider-man BDs are region free.

So it's weird that they had such a gap (6 weeks) between release dates between Australia and the US.

Thanks B Man, yeah these come out 15th Oct in The U.K so i'm gonna order from send-it, that way I limit the risk of paying duty as its over the 18 limit

Cheers for the heads up!

Man, the Spider-Man 3 looks beautiful. What I jumped by scenes, the park scene where parker meets mj, ahh, the colors in the leaves and everything, so pure and vivid. Had to pick up my jaw from the floor.

Holy hell, that's some high ratings.

OSHAN 10-02-2007 10:02 PM

I don't agree with those PQ ratings. I own the boxset (imported from AU) and the Spider-man transfer was soft and inconsistent. I thought some scenes were outstanding (like the goblin fight in the burning building) but overall the best I could call it is "good".

SP2 was consistent throughout and had a very film like quality too it, more than I expected. Out of all the HD movies I seen the first one I thought of was Unforgiven, which I didn't expect from Spider-man 2.

The third had the most pop by far and that's to be expected. I just don't care for the movie all that much, goes downhill after the black suit spidey/sandman fight (love everything up until the end of that fight).

It is a great boxset and I picked it up 74 dollars shipped and it is all region if people are interested in importing. The box art and spines are ruined though by AU's fugly rating though if you care about that stuff.

Box Set ratings
 
Oshan, I believe those ratings are for the transfer.

There are some soft scenes in the movies, and even some stock footage inserted here and there, but that is in the source material.

I think the ratings refer to how close to the source material the transfer is.

ie it's a faithful transfer.
