Default Ridley Scott Feeling Blu

Ridley Scott Feeling Blu

Medusa Distribution, an Italian film distributor and exclusive HD DVD supporter, will release 'Kingdom of Heaven' as their first Blu-ray title. The move comes after the film's director, Ridley Scott, insisted that they release the title on Blu-ray. The acclaimed director joins the ranks of Steven Spielberg and Francis Ford Coppola as filmmakers who insist their films get distributed on Blu-ray.

You do realize that the only reason they want their movies on both formats is they will recieve more money in royalties on each disk sold right. I mean you have to realize they are still getting a cut on each disk sold so of course they want them on both formats so they don't miss out on one red cent.

Martin Scorsese is the best director.

Would you honestly say that if he was pushing for HD DVD versions of BD-only movies?

Somehow I don't think so.

P.S. I loved Kingdom of Heaven. I wish I could get it on HD DVD, although with a better PQ. . . I saw the BD version playing in Best Buy a while back, it was god awful.

You judge a movie by how it looks on a display at Best Buy? Do you know anything about PQ? I bet your HDTV isn't even caibrated and you constantly keep it in torch mode with the sharpness at 50.

Ridley Scott movies:

Blade Runner
Alien
Gladiator
Black Hawk Down
Kingdom of Heaven
etc
etc

What good directors does HD DVD have? Steven Spielberg? Oh wait, he hates HD DVD so much that he wont let them have any of his movies as exclsuives

He's definitely up there in the top 5. Godard is the best director of all-time.

Following the "doesn't belong here" rulings.. why does Ridley Scott's opinion even matter? I would feel this way regardless of the format the director chooses. It isn't anything we can control.

Then why argue over who is the best director?

Personally, I like the color blue but not necessarily as a disc format

We can argue about everything!

Of course. . .

I don't own a BluRay player GLOW. . . where the hell else would I see it? None of my friends own a BD player either. In fact, I don't know a single person who owns a BD player or PS3. Where the hell would you suggest I go watch it?

It was being played on a very nice Samsung LCD using the $499 Sony BD player. Whether it was calibrated or not, shit if I know. . . I don't work there. The movie was grainy and fuzzy at best.

Your telling me, I've seen T2 on Blu-Ray, and what a mess. BraveHeart & Gladiator rock & are both HD DVD exclusive.

That's funny, because I consider Breathless to be one of the very worst movies I've ever seen.
