Default grindhouse films coming to hd dvd

I recently saw that on blogspot, they are announcing planet terror and deathproof on hd dvd as german imports. deathproof coems to german january 7, and planet terror comes february 4. also announced are finnish versions, which could be cheaper as the dutch releases tend to be cheaper. so we got two anticipated films and a chance we could get them cheaper...

I bought them on SD and they looked fantastic upconverted. I really don't see how being in HD will improve these. They're not meant to be great looking.

HD DVDs typically cost 27-33 EUR in Finland in all the stores I've looked at. I would be surprised if the upcoming FS Film HD DVD releases were going to be much cheaper than that at normal prices. Anyway, I'm planning to get the Finnish versions of Deathproof, Planet Terror, 3:10 to Yuma and Ganes (Finnish movie) as soon as they are available. No specific release date announced yet but it's expected to be withing 1st quarter. Also Eastern Promises is coming out in Finland as FS Film release, but since it's available from U.S. already 26-Dec, I'm going to get the U.S. version of that one. I'm a big Cronenberg fan.

In the shops the price can very between 21 to 29 euro (well it does here in Italy) with the average title being sold normally at around 24 euro : Blurays are slightly more expensive in general but the price is more or less the same...

For what I have seen the German prices are again slightly higher so your estimate is about right...

I completely disagree. Just because they are stylistic films doesnt mean that they wont look a ton better in HD which I can pretty much guarantee they will. The HD versions will still have a lot more detail and willstill seem far far sharper than the SD version. This was one of my favorite films of the year and I am definitly waiting for the HD versions. Again just because a film is stylistically designed to look like an older beat up film does not mean that such a look will not be drastically improved in HD.

I fully expect both Death Proof and Planet Terror to score at least a 3 in PQ, which is still considerably better than a SD copy.

As much as I loved Grindhouse, I refuse to buy the movies separately. They are meant to be viewed togaether with fake trailers, and any release that offers anything different is just ripping you off. I'll pass.

We won't know this until the reviews are in. Have you seen the SD versions upconverted? A lot of SD films can go toe to toe with some poorly transferred HD copies.
