Individual Entry


Updated HD DVD image quality rankings


Lyris’ recent purchase of a 40” 1080p-capable display has caused me to re-evaluate a few titles. By and large, not much has changed, although Corpse Bride has emerged as the closest to being technically “perfect” (personally, I prefer the grainy aesthetic of Serenity, though).


  • Corpse Bride (Warner, USA)
  • Serenity (Universal, UK)
  • Serenity (Universal, USA)
  • Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Warner, UK)


  • The Bourne Supremacy (Universal, USA)
  • The Adventures of Robin Hood (Warner, USA)
  • Miami Vice (Universal, USA)
  • Unleashed (Universal, USA)
  • Casablanca (Warner, USA)
  • Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (Warner, UK)


  • Red Dragon (Universal, USA)
  • Constantine (Warner, USA)
  • Land of the Dead (Universal, USA)
  • V for Vendetta (Warner, USA)
  • The Machinist (Toshiba, Japan)
  • Sleepy Hollow (Paramount, USA)
  • Million Dollar Baby (Warner, USA)


  • Wolf Creek (The Weinstein Company, USA)
  • Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (Universal, USA)
  • The Mummy Returns (Universal, USA)
  • Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (Warner, USA)


  • Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (Paramount, USA)
  • An American Werewolf in London (Universal, USA)
  • Brokeback Mountain (Universal, USA)
  • Basic Instinct (Studio Canal, France)

I’ll continue to post this list, with updates, at regular intervals (probably around once a month). Also, expect Blu-ray titles to begin to be added starting with the next major update.
