Re: Season FIVE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

The blu-ray.com review is up. The image shows a bit more noise than I was expecting and the colours dont seem as bold this season, however the image is still far, far away superior than its DVD counterparts.

Wow, it really shows up how terrible some of the movie transfers are. Look at how much more naturalistic and film-like Unification is compared to ST6.

I disagree. The colors seem just as bold to me. Look at some of the screencaps on our review to see what I mean.

Ugh. TUC got the worst of the DNR treatments. I don't get why studios do that.

It also originates from a 1080i master. It shows signs of being deinterlaced. Some reviews think they just dusted off the cable TV master, cropped it, removed the added scenes and heavily DNRed it.

Re: Season FIVE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

I just assumed they used heavy DNR because of it having heavier grain than the other films, due to being shot in 500 speed and processed at Super35. Either way, what a shame. The DNR didn't bother me too much with the other films, but with TUC, it's just rubber city.

Yeah, I wouldn't place too much trust in Blu-ray.com's screencaps. They appear to have too much yellow in them. TrekCore's appear more accurate:

I *thought* they'd done something weird. Yes, Blu-ray.com's screenshots have been post-processed with some weird color timing.

The shots I post at TrekCore are totaly unaltered

It looks like a typical case of a decoder using the wrong colorimetry. Rec. 601 and Rec. 709 are frequently mixed up causing just a difference like in those comparison screenshot. DVD and Blu-Ray both support both, afaIk. Without analyzing the video stream, it's hard to tell which one is right, though.

It's not hard to tell which one is right - playing the show back through a standard Blu-ray player, it looks exactly the same as in our screenshots. What's more, our screenshots also conform to how the show looks at CBS Digital, where they're doing the actual color correction!

So, no yellow tinge folks. Panic over.

Re: Season FIVE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

I guess we're not going to see a price drop for the S5 set on amazon. It's still $78 and the set comes out tomorrow. I payed in the 50s for all the other sets I wonder why this one is more expensive. Granted, we still have another day, but usually the price drops on the Sunday before release day. I'm getting a little concerned that's not going to happen this time.

Looks like Best Buy is the best option. Their Sunday newspaper ad has it at $57.99 (Uinfication is $14.99), even though their website has the main set at the seventy-something price. I plan on getting there at opening tomorrow.

Amazon's website should post a price drop tomorrow. It almost always drops on the release date.
