Default xXx Import

Any side by side comparisons of the xXx HD DVD import to the US Bluray release. Is one better, worse, or are they basically the same? Waht are the differences, if any? I know the Blu-ray reviewed pretty badly...

I'd like to know too...I was thinking bout picking this up over at Xploited.. But a 40 buck pricetag is expensive for something I'm unsure about PQ wise..

Not to mention the movie is horrible. PQ was probably the worst i've seen on blu-ray.

I have the Japanese HD DVD - got it cheaply 2nd hand. I don't have the Blu-ray though so I can not compare the 2. I have to say that the HD DVD doesn't look very good in PQ department. I have yet to watch it in full but when I took a look it didn't impress at all. Can't really recommend this title at the full price and the movie itself is not the greatest either...

Yeah, I have to agree that this movie does not have good PQ. I'd stick with the SD version. Never thought I'd say that before.

The Jap import is better then the Blu in terms of PQ, the Blu is only 25gb disc and Mpeg2, while the import is 30gb HDDVD and better encode and audio.

I bought mine at 1980 yen 2nd hand from Shibuya's Tsutaya store. Their 2nd hand HD DVD prices are the best I've seen here in Tokyo - though they typically only have those good prices for some of the Toshiba Ent. and Showgate releases for some reason. I don't think they've had xXx there recently anymore though. I'll check it the next time I go there. They've had recently Finding Neverland at 980 yen and The Uninvited at 1180 yen (Korean and Japanese language only). Their 2nd hand HD DVD section is somehow shrinking though, which I guess is no surprise at those prices. It's strange that they ask for much higher prices for the same movies as 2nd hand DVDs than as HD DVDs.
