Default Silent Hill on Blu-ray...why all the hate??

To tell you the truth, I am just stunned that people found silent hill to look bad on bluray. Its one of my favorite movies, so i decided to RENT it at blockbuster on blu to see if its really as bad as everyone on this site says it is. I put the disc in and my friends and I were blown away at how great the picture quality is. it is very sharp, colorful and spot on. I found no flaws. It was probably one of the better transfers I have seen for a horror movie.

Agree! The "atmosphere" of the movie was very creepy. A great job by the director. Ditto for the AQ.
My most anticipated release of 2018:

last I read they were talking about bringing it out next year or 2011. They said they knew what they did wrong in the first film and are trying to fix it for the second and make it even creepier. Yes they are both working on other projects in the mean time but they are also working on this as well.

I LOVED that movie, never really played the games but still pretty good... I agree with most that the end could have been better but still the first half of the movie is incredible...The Blu-Ray is pretty decent IMO...

silent hill got a pretty good review from HDD. 4 stars for video and 5 for audio. blu-ray.com hasnt done a review but from what ive seen i was also impressed with the title. prblem with the title is most parts of the movie are very dark and black and you need a LCD that can handle blacks or it will look pretty crappy

The only reason I loathed it is because of the lack of extras.. which suck.

Other than that, its a five star movie, and top notch video and audio.

I concur, the only reason I'm still holding onto my DVD copy is the lack of extras. Anyone know if the German import has any of the special features? Typically, I try to avoid the double-dip (or triple-dip in this case), but I bought my blu used over a year ago for $10, so I won't be out too much, and I've definitely gotten my moneys worth.

I have the US version and the German import but I haven't tried to view the extras on the import. Most of the time I don't bother trying b/c I can't read the menus and sometimes the extras on the imports don't work (on region A players even if the movie does).

I'll try it now to see if I can tell what it has for the special features (if anything).

Edit: Don't think it does. Looks like scene access is the only thing it provides.

Thanks for the heads up. I'll just wait for Sony's eventual SE on blu (probably to coincide w/ the release of Silent Hill 2).

I agree. The teaser poster for SH is one of my favorite movie posters ever.

To confirm once again, the German release also features no content beyond the film. Not even a trailer.

Thought there is no date set, the director is planning on a new transfert for the french blu-ray, with tons of extras. The R2 DVD is superior to the US Blu-Ray already, in both colors, contrasts and extras, so it look promising.
