Default The Kingdom Hd-dvd??

Hi all im new here, well this is the first time i have posted in these forums, i think this is a great website and i also use it as a reference before i buy any HD-DVD discs so i know im not buying poor discs.

However after reading the review of the KINGDOM on HD-DVD im somewhat confused, the review states how clear and crisp the picture is and how good the transfer is on HD-DVD.

But i have to disagree with this review as my disc is extremely grainy and i do not get one scene of clarity, sure it is abit sharper than a dvd but compared to other HD-DVDS such as TRANSFORMERS Or THE BOURNE ULTIMATUM this disc is a very poor transfer.

I would put this on a par with The first FULL METAL JACKET release, its almost that bad!!.

Is it the disc im using could it be a dud? is it my player because other dsics seem fine or is is just the actual film itself, is it supposed to be like this as its a combo disc? im very dissapointed to say the least.

Well, I can't attest to the quality of the transfer as I don't have the disc, but the grain was an artistic choice by the director. It looked grainy in the cinema, so if you were expecting the clarity of 'Transformers' then no wonder you're disappointed.
