I just watched ASD last week. It looked good on DVD so I'm sure it will blow us away on Blu-ray.

Default Yay ASD

Having seen the film at the cinemas, I was especially impressed with not only the graphics, but the intruiging plot and the reality surrounding the character's feelings. For this to be on Blu-Ray would certainly look the buisness, and I can't wait for a confirmed European date.

I just couldn't get into the movie, so much so I fell asleep. Maybe it was because I was exhausted....

Oh well, if it comes out I'll give it another chance on BD.

So does anyone know what codec the blu-ray or hd-dvd version will use yet? I have both, and would prefer the blu-ray (cause i have hdmi output for it not just component), but if its mpeg2 like a lot of blu-rays, it would still look better on hd-dvd over component if that one is VC1.

wow. welcome to the myth. Just because something is VC1 and something else is Mpeg 2, does not mean VC1 will look better
