Re: DVD Release Date?

As I stated in my original post that I'm hoping for something similar to what they did with Iron Man last year (I think it came out sometime in September) wouldn't mind waiting until near Christmas for a proper extras treatment.

I read somewhere that they would shoot for a Christmas release for STXII.
Why would they want to do a Christmas release for XII when they did summer for XI? I would expect XII to make more money, so shouldn't they release it at a time when it can make more?

Re: DVD Release Date?

According to The Digital Bits:

What's more, the Star Trek: The Next Generation - Original Motion Picture Collection (which will include Generations, First Contact, Insurrection and Nemesis) is planned for release sometime in November or December, timed to coincide with the DVD/Blu-ray release of J.J. Abrams' new Star Trek (still TBA). Some of the classic Trek films (released on Blu-ray last month as part of the box set) will be available as single-film BD releases at that time as well.

Re: DVD Release Date?

It'll be the first Bluray I buy. I'll be getting a brand new Bluray player with it and a HD TV if I don't have one by then.

Nice pre-xmas treat. It'll look stunning in 1080p.

Re: DVD Release Date?

The trend seems to be anywhere from 4 - 6 months after a movie initially opens at the Box Office. I suspect we will see an October release. MI:III opened in May at the theaters and was out by the end of October too (same studio).

And EVERY HDTV UPCONVERTS. Every one that's ever been made. You don't need a fancy 'upconverting DVD player' to do it.

All HDTVs upconvert. If they didn't, playing a standard definition DVD would result in a tiny postage-stamp-sized image in the middle of the screen surrounded by a foot of black on all sides.

The dilemma is, will your HDTV's upconverter be better or worse than that of an upconverting DVD player? Most HDTVs, it's the former. A decent HDTV will have a better upconverter. If you have such a TV, that's all you need.

In fact, I bought the specific Blu-Ray player I did, because it can DISABLE its own upconverter (for standard def DVDs) - I know my TV will do a better job of it.

This movie has me wanting my first Blu-Ray player. Currently I have a DVD player which "upconverts to 1080p definition". Can some of our technically inclined members educate me on the difference? If I have an "upconvert" player, do I really need Blu-Ray?
Quick and Dirty:

Oh, and some examples:

It's almost like removing a cataract from the TV screen.

I may have to get that Blu-Ray for Christmas after all. Tomorrow morning they deliver my new Samsung DLP (yeah, 1080p) baby!

Thanks for all the help.

VideoETA.com lists it as October 2009. They're always right.

Re: DVD Release Date?

The projected date I saw was November 17, 2009. This would make sense as it is just in time for holiday shopping.

Re: DVD Release Date?

My parents have a new HDTV, and I leave all my good DVDs, such as "Lord of the Rings," "Iron Man," and "Star Trek: Nemesis" at their house to watch on the big screen when I'm there.

The DVDs look fine on the HDTV -- I don't notice any pixelation or other quality problems. The DVDs look just as good as any HD satellite broadcast channels on the TV.

Maybe my eyesight (and my parents') is not so good that I need a Blu-ray player. ...

Cable and satellite are notorious for severely over-compressing their HD signals. Have you ever scene over-the-air HD or Blu-ray on the same set?

It depends very much on the size of the screen - with 32" you won't notice much difference between DVD and Blu-ray. But with 42" and over, the difference will be very notable (go over 50" and it's like night and day).

Here is a comparison of video resolutions (the red is DVD, the blue is Blu-ray on Full HD screen.):

So, you'll need quite a large screen to take full visual advantage of 1080p.

It is - however - very important if you are watching DVDs on an HDTV to output a progressive signal IMHO, that makes far more difference than upscaling.
