Default Can someone verify if these imports are worth the money?

I was looking around eBay for some import HD DVDs, and found these:

-Mulholland Drive
-The Machinist
-Brotherhood of the Wolf
-Perfume: Story of a Murderer

Are these worth tne pricey cost? How is the Picture Quality on all of them?

I've been thinking about the Machinist, but it is a tad too pricey for me at Exploited.

I own the Machinist and Brotherhood Of The Wolf. The Machinist is definitely worth it's current price on . The Japanese transfer by Toshiba is really good and definitely is an upgrade over the standard dvd. The very accurately matches the theatre release: muted colors, fine detail, occasionally dark with high contrast, bleak as intended. This disc might become a collector's item, unless it someday shows up on .

Brotherhood Of The wolf is simply amazing and the transfer is one the best i've seen on .

Recommend these 2 on your list.


peace

I also recommend The Machinist and it will definitely become difficult to get after a while since it's already apparently Out of Print although many shops still have some availability currently.

Perfume (German) is also a good disc as long as you like the movie. Very good technically. I liked the movie as well but I think some may not, it's likely to divide opinions.

PQ of Brotherhood of the Wolf also divides opinions, but as a movie it's definitely great.

The only one I haven't seen of the ones I listed is Brotherhood of the Wolf.

I actually loved Perfume. Thought it was quite a beautiful film and a very under-appreciated "Masterpiece". I want to get the HD DVD mostly for picture quality since I feel the DVD left something to be desired...

I will definitely pick up The Machinist on HD DVD then, as well as Perfume

Cool, if you liked the movie you won't regret buying the . The PQ is amazing on Perfume. Was probably my favorite movie of 2006 and when I got the I couldn't believe I waited so long due to the $43ish price tag.
