Re: Cromartie High School - R1 vs. R2J

Looks almost identical.

P.S. One of the craziest comedies I've seen. The baseball episode was absolutely hilarious. Check out the manga, if you haven't already,

Re: Hard Boiled :: R0HK vs R1US vs R2DE vs R2FR vs R0UK vs R

Did you do what I said to see this? Just did and you are somewhat right. It is lacking detail for a true HD remastering. =/ Oh well... Still better than anything that is currently out there so far. ...sharp enough that you could give the transfer a pass and say "not an upscale", but likewise I woul...

It only has an SD level of detail (downscale then scale back up to see this)
Yeah... no.

Re: Hard Boiled :: R0HK vs R1US vs R2DE vs R2FR vs R0UK vs R

The filesizes are absurdly small, the fact those screengrabs are 1920x1080 jpegs compressed to less than 200KB might account for some of the "blockiness". Contrast and brightness looks OK in the grabs (not sure what Mark's going on about with the black levels tbh), but the grabs do look soft with a...

I originally had the trilogy because it was cheap Haha, same here. To be totally honest I have never seen the sequels. I remember I tried watching Reloaded back when it came out, but I turned it off after 40 minutes or so. Might have something to do with me being 16 at the time and having an attent...

Re: Hard Boiled :: R0HK vs R1US vs R2DE vs R2FR vs R0UK vs R

Look at the victim's hair in Cap #3; the white noise (not grain) is almost as bad as Arrow's Tenebrae BD. The frame was not static and was in motion, but now that you mention it... They should have used a BD50 instead of BD25 as those look like compression artefacts. Also the black levels are poor;...

Re: Hard Boiled :: R0HK vs R1US vs R2DE vs R2FR vs R0UK vs R

And you are absolutely wrong. While the brightness/contrast may be a little higher than it should be, this is the best this movie has ever looked and most probably WILL ever look.

Re: BnB Hosting Renewal

Funny coincidence - I'm downloading this BD right now :lol: Anyway - if it's actually worth it for you to sell this thing for a tenner and ship it to Lithuania drop me a PM with details and I'll get my buddy to transfer the money since I don't have a PayPal account.

Re: What is this film?

Since you guys know so much about HK cinema stuff I'm gonna try asking it here, since I don't want to make a new thread: About 15 years ago I watched some HK action movie (don't really remember if it was HK as I was 10 or something, but it was definitely asian) and I clearly remember two scenes from...

Re: What asian film/series have you just seen.. marks out of

Kill Zone (SPL): 3.5/5 Good cop/drama movie - only a couple of truly memorable fights but Donnie v Sammo is a cracker, and I also like the fight with Donnie & one of the bodyguards (?) - the one who dressed in white with blond hair. The ending was pretty tragic and dark in a way - for both villain ...

Not such a big loss to be honest, as they didn't have much info about the most important thing - the video quality.

You want to know how to create your own Death Note image to print out? Basically your problem is going to be printing white ink on to black, which I'm not sure is possible! I can only think of three ways to go about it: 1. Create a graphic with a black canvas & white font (like this ) and just prin...
