Fosfor Gadgets has a link to a site that has the first reviews of the first movies released on the new Blu-ray DVD hidef format.
The conclusions so far by this one reviewer is that there is room for improvement. The review noted that they felt the quality of the video was at times in consistent, as at times was not even as good as over-the-air broadcast HD TV. This doesn’t sound good for Blu-ray so far, which is being touted as superior to HD-DVD. The reviewer says there is definitely room for improvement, and in some ways sounds like the first movies that were released on DVDs with over-compression and showing compression artifacts, the movie studios have got to get to grips with what is possible with the new format and what can be achieved.
