Why is 1080p called "True HD" on television boxes everywhere when there are higher resolutions than it?
[QUOTE=Rusty100;35538103]i got that shit on release i still have my rub on tattoos i got at the imax screening too[/QUOTE] I'm a bit late with the blu rays only recently got one but still.
[QUOTE=Al Bundy;35538390]Why is 1080p called "True HD" on television boxes everywhere when there are higher resolutions than it?[/QUOTE] because i think 720p was originally called HD. things higher than 1080 will probably have a new name too (this is really all just marketing shit)
calling it now, Beyond HD
Nope, QFHD. QFHD TVs already exist.

when do you think the blu ray is going to die because i think that im gonna start a collection on the next year and i dont want to get fucked over like dude do you still buy blu ray pffff lol red ray is the new thing.
A long time yet.
[QUOTE=Rusty100;35539059]calling it now, Beyond HD[/QUOTE] True True HD™
So (in theory), the larger the 1080p screen is, the lower quality it is up close. Like if Imax screens used 1080p the pixels would be as large the light bulb in a medium sized flashlight.
that is how it works

but i mean like a new supreme format with better quality.

[URL]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graphic_display_resolutions#High-Definition[/URL][/QUOTE] no I mean the commercial buzzword they'll give it. of course it will have an actual name.
Ah. Well in that case yeah something stupid like you said.
[QUOTE=Caragolpe;35548050]but i mean like a new supreme format with better quality.[/QUOTE] We just switched to a new display standard. It'll be another 40 years before we even consider switching TV signal format again. Streamed movies also have a fuckton of artifacts and blocking. I fucking hate that they sell this shit! If they kill physical distribution, quality is forever fucked.
I think they're labelling it Ultra HD [editline]16th April 2012[/editline] yeah [url]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ultra_High_Definition_Television[/url]
What resolution (if you can even say that) is the film movies are filmed on?
I think it's at least 4k x something if done digitally not sure how you'd compare with 35mm celluloid films both are very different and there are different ways of comparing them this reminds me recently christopher nolan has started campaigning against the movement away from celluloid [url]http://www.laweekly.com/2012-04-12/film-tv/35-mm-film-digital-Hollywood/[/url] I've seen some films shot digitally and they've looked very cheap and distractingly un-cinematic, while others have obviously been more refined in the process and look way better.
Just purchased both Terminator 1 and 2 off Amazon. The Blu-Ray book edition of Terminator 1 is on sale today only I believe for $10. Figured it was worth getting.

Just got Dirty Harry: Ultimate Collector's Edition for like $30. Amazon is going to kill me.
[QUOTE=Inspector Jones;35679648]Just got Dirty Harry: Ultimate Collector's Edition for like $30. Amazon is going to kill me.[/QUOTE] The extras are pretty neat, like the book, except for the wallet, it really isn't made with quality in mind.
i finally got the alien anthology on blu-ray, and for only 35 bucks. Very nice collection, damn it was worth waiting for a good deal.
[QUOTE=mark6789;35637840]The skynet edition is cool but it can be a bitch sometimes. If it looks like its frozen on the first menu just let it run for a bit then it will go[/QUOTE] skynet edition has the worst pq, the american regular edition is barely any better
[QUOTE=Jedi_Rayne;35679797]The extras are pretty neat, like the book, except for the wallet, it really isn't made with quality in mind.[/QUOTE] I didn't even know it came with collectible shit, so I can't complain about the quality of any of the trinkets. Getting the Ultimate Edition was actually cheaper then getting the Standard Collector's edition. Fancy that. I had to double check to make sure. [QUOTE=Rusty100;35683609]skynet edition has the worst pq, the american regular edition is barely any better[/QUOTE] So did I fuck up getting the Skynet edition? Or is there really no stand out, must have edition of Terminator 2?
no you basically fucked up and got a heavily dnr'd piece of shit [editline]24th April 2012[/editline] go look up screenshot comparisons of the different versions
Well I just watched it and I was happy for what I paid ($5). My only complaint is that it well over 5 minutes from putting the disk in to actually start playing the damn thing.
[IMG]http://www.blogcdn.com/www.engadget.com/media/2012/01/bond-50thkaskewgoldspine.jpg[/IMG] Wow, that is massive. And the Indy quadrilogy is coming out in October!
Been a while since the last post here. [t]http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/916qEjJWBCL._AA1500_.jpg[/t] Only a couple more weeks until this bad boy comes out.
Picked up the Clockwork Orange 40th Anniversary Digibook and the Complete Metropolis Blu-rays today for $40. Pretty damn happy with myself.
