I'm sure that most here do not really care about this subject matter, myself included, however, I did find it to be an interesting read.

The link is SFW.

Reading the article I have come to the conclusion that Candy Hudson doesn't know what she is talking about. Especially after reading the test equipment she used.
I have not seen Pirates on Blu-Ray or HD DVD. So I can't really comment one way or the other as to the PQ.
But I do call shenanigans on the article.

I second that call on shenanigans. I have never seen the movie and don't intend on it, but I'm sure it looks better than the DVD.

At the same time though, its tough to believe that a porn studio would do that great a job with a 1080p transfer. I don't think they'd want people seeing TOO much detail in their actors lol.

An 18" laptop screen?

And a TV that isn't truly HD?

Great test! I guess that would be like test driving a new car and driving it around the lot..

Id imagine 1080p porn would be a little scary. No one wants to see stretch marks and flapping cellulose in porn.
The studio probably softened the look of the movie as much as they can.

Calling anything involving porn a "hand test" is just asking for it

Wow, the test equipment is an 1080p 18" screen!!! What a waste of 1080p.

I don't have Pirates, but I do have Babysitters on HD DVD. And it's PQ is outstanding. It's on par with the best films on HD/BD like Crank and King Kong in terms of PQ.

God forbid people get turned on by "real" looking people. I find "real girls" far more attractive than the girls in glossy magazines that have been photoshopped to hell, people have pours, people have flaws, I hate how plastic and barbie like touched up shots etc look, I'd actually rather see that they're human.

RE the article, does she not realise that DVD looks really good on smaller displays anyway? thats like showing someone a thumbnail of a photo taken on a cheap budget digital camera, then a thumbnail of a photo high end professional camera and saying "loook.... an extra 2000 for the second camera, and the results are the same!"

I agree, which is why I stay away from Maxim, Front, and the junk that imitates all of that. An unaltered natural woman is always 100 times better than a plastic surgerized bimbo.

More proof that Blu Ray is a scam. I've been saying for a long time now, there is no difference between Blu ray and regualr television. HD-DVD has much better quality.

Finally the truth comes out. :lol: :lol: :lol:

In fact HD DVD was too good. When the studios realized they didn't want to hand out 1:1 copies of their masters to the consumers, they paid Tosh 11.78 billion dollars to pull the plug.

:p
