...has better definition than reality.

I watched 300 on a giant Samsung (60" I believe) in Blu-ray, I looked down and I had an eight-pack.

I stood around in Best buy the other day and watched about 20 minutes of Pirates of The Caribbean 2 the other day on Hi-Def. The super high resolution and ability to see every little whisker on Johnny Depps devilishly handsome and ultimately lickable face... *ahem* ... actually kind of took away from the movie experience for me, especially when you were seeing CG superimposed against reality. 

Hi-Def does indeed rock, but sometimes, things should look grainy, grimy, and gritty.

I agree with shastar on this one, Hi-Def is nice but not always. I'll bet it has the ability to make the Hulk movie worse.

I'm sure for CG movies with it would look worse... hell, Beowulf looked like a 300/Shrek crossover enough as it was.

It's a dirty cycle of money, I tell you.  It starts by buying the HiDef TV and Blue-Ray player.  Then the movies have to be made better to look good in HiDef.  The next thing you know, you're having to buy new porn because the blur of low-res no longer hides Anna Chaseadick's bullet wounds and C-Section scares.  It's a vicious cycle.

But, I'll always be slow to upgrade.  I was still clinging tightly to my Betamax while people were trying to get me to convert to DVD.  Laugh now, but I've reacquired a Hi-Fi Betamax, and as soon as it's eaten enough tapes to sate its demonic hunger, there will be retro retribution.  (R.I.P.

the problem i have with blue-ray, is the fact that there is only one difference between them and HD dvd's. that being the extended menus.

for example, if you take 2 high def tv's, same name and brand, and play the same movie on both, one being blue-ray the other being HD you will not be able to see a visual difference.  the reason for this is because the human eye can not see in the level of detail that blue-ray provides.

and that is the reason i do not, nor will i own blue-ray movies, it is wasted money.
