Thank you Criterion for releasing this masterpiece in Blu-ray! I saw this in 70mm a few years back and it’s really meant to be seen in a very large screen or high resolution. This is one of my very favorite films and I am glad I can actually see it as it was meant to be seen.
Now I have to sell my DVD version… anyone wants to buy email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
yes, i’m very glad they released blu-ray on blu-ray.
MC, what are you talking about? Criterion released what on Blu-ray?
Obviously, but released what? Which film?
the blu ray one
I’m sure it will be a big improvement over dvd.
The Blu-ray two disc special edition is spectacular. Great cover art too.
do you have it on HD-DVD!?!?!?!?!?!?!!?!??
I put my money on PLAYTIME….
I was talking about Playtime… I thought I posted this under Playtime… oh well.
Ben Simington: I don’t have Playtime on HD-DVD…. I wish it came out on HD-DVD… I preffered HD-DVD to Blu-ray.
I was just being a smartass about HD-DVD…couldn’t really tell you much about the format other than it lost out to Blu-ray. I’d be genuinely curious to hear your opinion about the format!
Missed a 70mm screening of PLAYTIME about 4 months ago, and am kicking myself for it…
Can anyone tell me what is the difference between blu-ray and HD-DVD?
The HD-DVD format has died. Blu-ray won the battle last year. There wasn’t a whole lot of difference between the formats as far as the look. They both provided hi defintion video. Back in the days of the format war, both sides would say their side was better. Here is an article explaining the difference between the formats from 2004.
As soon as Warner went back to Blu-ray, Hd-DVD’s house of cards started to fall and the war was over. I went out and bought a Blu-ray player, a bunch of Kubrick fiims and Bladerunner and never looked back.
If you have 3 more minutes, check out this clip that some genius posted on You-tube which basically explains the last days of Hd-dvd. Pretty funny stuff.
