Default 'Wedding Crashers' - High-Def Digest Review

Nate has reviewed 'Wedding Crashers.' He says this comedy has lots of great replay value. This Blu-ray doesn't offer the best video and audio, but it does come with plenty of extras. This is worth a look based on the film alone.

Full review here:

I'll point out Xylon's comparison thread over at AVS where he shows the two versions of the movie (theatrical vs. extended) use entirely separate encodes:

Theatrical ends up having more grain and the extended appears more DNR-ed. Odd to say the least that they used two different encodes instead of seamless branching.

Yep... I'll definitely add this to my collection. But not until I can get it for less than $15. Might even wait for it to be $9.99 at Frys!

Dear Studios: I have money to spend. But I'm being more frugal with it in my retirement. You want some of it?.... You gotta lower those street prices! $20 for a catalog title on Blu is ridiculous!

it's less odd they they used separate encodes more odd that one version was DNRed while the other was not

it hurts my brain when i try to figure it out

Finally got around to watching this the other day and I think it's the worst looking Blu-ray I own. It's bad. I actually watched the theatrical version since I find the unrated to drag a bit and it was riddled with DNR and noise.

I meant to say: Why bother spending money doing two separate encodes (and spend the money to DNR them differently) instead of spending presumably less money to reuse a single encode that utilizes seamless branching?

I didn't word it correctly.

no problemo, chief. i love the film, too. some titles get lost in the shuffle with all the other things going on. it's tough to fill in all the gaps AND continue moving forward, but we're trying. if it makes ya'll feel any better, my next review will be the first review for a blu-ray of the import nature (), and i have a few other titles in the works that no other site has.
