Question Video reviews?

Would anybody be interested in some video reviews for the imports I own if I made them? You won't be able to see the picture quality difference but I can show the case, tool around in the menus and give my thoughts on the PQ/movie itself.

I have quite a few imports too:
1408 (Netherlands)
Band Of Brothers Vol. 1-5 (Japan)
Bridge to Terabithia (Italy)
Elephant Man (France)
The Jimi Hendrix Experience: Live at Monterey (UK)
Les Triplettes De Belleville (France)
The Machinist (Japan)
Mulholland Drive (France)
Perfume: The Story Of A Murderer (Germany)
The Pianist (UK)
The Prestige (UK)
Reservoir Dogs (Netherlands)
Serpico (France)
Terminator 2: Judgement Day (France)
Tomb Raider 2: Cradle Of Life (Germany)
Total Recall (France)
Twenty Thousand Streets Under The Sky (UK)

I would certainly be interested in reading those reviews though I have most of those titles (not all though). I think such reviews would be more interesting for those discs that are not very common among importers and haven't been reviewed much yet, e.g. if there are no "professional reviews" around. Maybe the following would be especially interesting from that point of view:

Band Of Brothers Vol. 1-5 (Japan) (no official reviews that I know of)
Bridge to Terabithia (Italy)
Les Triplettes De Belleville (France)
Mulholland Drive (France)
Serpico (France)
Tomb Raider 2: Cradle Of Life (Germany)
Twenty Thousand Streets Under The Sky (UK)

I have been tempted on buying Band of Brothers for weeks now. I can't afford the set completly so I going to buy just disc 3 and 4 (considering I already on it on DVD and these are the more action Disc)
If it looks as good as I would think it would be... It should be a no brain purchase even if its 40 bucks a disc.

Well, I was planning on doing on-the-fly video with the main points written instead of reading from a script, just to keep it interesting.

The original idea was to show off the menus and other stuff of that manner for people on the fence. Alot of my purchases were blind buys and I would have loved to have seen something like this.

I also don't have any video editing software so it will be a one take sort of thing.

You should read the Band Of Brothers thread over at AVS.

They have a screenshot comparison between the DVD and the HD-DVD.

Now I see what you meant with a video review That seems like an interesting idea definitely. Would be interested in seeing it for any of the titles actually and even more so for those that I don't already have.

Well, pick one and I'll do that title as a test run to see if this is a good idea or not.
