Default 300 vs The Host

300 = 4 Stars
The Host = 4 Stars

They are both rated as 4 stars .. but somehow I feel that 300 is many times better than the other korean movie Maybe it's just me.

Different people...different tastes my friend. But..I agree with you. I loved 300 and I think it was meant for hi def. Not so sure about The Host .

The host was an average film. But i see potential from the film maker

300 on the other hand...wow. Great Movie.

I'd recommend you turn it off after 40 minutes though - it goes downhill quickly after that.

Ok, well do you watch movies for enjoyment or just based on review scores? 300 is probably a better movie if you see cinema as an art form. But that does not necessarily mean that it is more enjoyable to watch. Everyone has an own taste and opinion right?.

Take for example Titanic, it is by critics accepted as an masterpiece of a movie.. personally I would much rather watch something like for example Dune (regarded by most as garbage).

What I'm saying is, how can you even compare these two movies, they are not even in the same genre. I have not actually seen 300, but atleast last time I checked it was not a monster movie . So take my advice, buy movies that fall in your taste. Reviews on this site only reflects the reviewers taste, and give an indication of the AV quality. You should not compare apples and oranges

I thought The Host was a better movie than 300, but the 300 disc is better. I thought the Host was way too grainy (the Korean SDVD doesn't have all that grain in it). AQ and extras are negligible, though 300 has more extras.

IMO, The Host was a bad movie but had good PQ. 300 was the most kick-ass movie ever, and it had excellent PQ. It's no contest. 300 is a must-own for every high-def media owner. I regret buying The Host.
