Re: Netflix Goes Blu-ray Exclusive
I still heavily debate if the better format won. I think big business pushed out the little guy just like the big 3 pushed out Tucker automobiles in the late 1940's. In June of 2006 when bluray launched to horrid reviews and a $1000 player, hddvd had stunning titles like Phantom of the Opera, Serenity, Unforgiven, Blazing Saddles, Constantine, U-571, Bourne Supremacy and while the initial blurays had virtually no extras Constantine had 8 hours worth, a lossless True HD track, pristine PQ, and IME to boot as did Bourne. It is scary how far behind bluray was at launch. They have caught up in quality but there players are a disaster at the monent.
I just got The Brave One the other day and the picture is stunning. VC1 can do wonders! On the verge of the TL-51 as well it is a shame Warner made the announcement when they did. We never got to see the format for all it was capable of.
