Default Lord of War

Does anyone know if the HD DVD import has a worse picture q than US Blu Ray? I wasn't really impressed w/ the Blu and have learned the HD DVD isn't all that great, but if I had to choose from either I'd rather have it on HD but not if the Blu looks better.

I already saw this topic but it never addresses my QUESTION. This topic just addresses the fact that the import isn't very good which is relative.

I'll try again; HD DVD Import of Lord of War is it better than than the US Blu Ray version or are they the same?

Anyone?

If I remember correctly it's a 1080i transfer, not 1080p.

I haven't seen the US BD version, but I own the HD DVD import and it's not bad looking. I'd say average PQ, not much wrong with it to comment on.

same here, got the hd, not the blu. it's not AMAZING, it's not TERRIBLE, a middle of the road hd dvd basically. since it's one of the cheapest imports for some reason (some stores less than blu), it's worth a pick-up in my eyes.

Thats laughable. The aspect ratio is wrong on the HD DVD release for one thing.

OAR or nothing in my eyes.

Wrong aspect ratio and barely HD. When the odd burst of clarity comes through, it makes you weep for what could have been. I imported it and sold it quickly afterwards. A terrible transfer.

Wow, I guess I should try watching the movie all the way through. From the sampling I've done it looks average to my eyes and sounds great!

- And I thought I had high standards PQ wise. Thanks guys, I feel quite humble with after reading your criticism
