Default From Hell: A review

Was able to scoop up a copy of From Hell, here in Canada.

PQ is pretty good but does somewhat vary from sharp daytime scenes to slightly soft nighttime and some of the interior scenes but that is probably intentional. Picture is very clean with no noticeable grain.

Colours are nicely saturated when required; especially the ladies dresses and during Johnny Depp's dream sequences of the grisly murders.

SQ comes in DTS HD lossless; however, I'm unable to properly decode this using the Sony 300; however, there is definitely a punch to the bass and the surrounds provide nice surround effects throughout the movie.

A unique extra is an optional pop-up trivia track that will display facts throughout the movie if you desire.

Loading was a bit slow but not to the degree of POTC. I'm using 2.00 firmware (awaiting delivery of DVD from Sony with latest version 2.6)

I believe the disc to be a definite improvement over standard definition but not a showcase for HD.

Any chance you can take a pic of the back cover?

Can't take a picture of the back cover but I can tell you that virtually all of the supplements from the previous 2 disc std DVD are NOT included.

I can show you the back when I get out of work if it's that important to you.

Yeah, this pisses me off. I was excited to upgrade, but I also have the Director's Limited Edition set and don't want to lose all the features.
