Default U2: Rattle and Hum (Blu-ray)

U2: Rattle and Hum (Blu-ray)

Reviewed by Peter M. Bracke
"I am not sure what my expectations were, but I actually think 'Rattle and Hum' looks narrowly better on Blu-ray. But first I'll get my complaints out of the way that apply to both formats. 'Rattle and Hum' is a severely grainy, messy film, and the source material suffers unnecessarily from age and neglect..."
"However, doing a direct comparison of three scenes -- the early number "Exit," the band's visit to Graceland, and finally "With or Without You," which again was shot in color -- I found the Blu-ray to be somewhat cleaner at times."
"Unlike the video, there is little to fault with 'U2: Rattle and Hum' in the audio department. All of the film's gargantuan concert sequences sound pretty fantastic, with the kind of attention to fine detail that marks the best live music recordings."

That's the way it's supposed to be! It's "artistic" grain
Isn't this title AVC? I read that La Gata (del Disco Grande) said it was, on HD DVD. Supossedly because VC-1 choked on the grain.

I believe that it is AVC on HD DVD.

Though Paramount seems to have done new encodes for other BDs in MPEG2 so it will be interesting to see.
Content is the key. See the stats

Does anyone know why the above is displayed on the page below?

I love music: (around 95% complete)

What is 'BR'? If you're talking about 'Blu-ray Disc', you should use 'BD'. But, considering Blu-ray Disc Association (BDA) don't know how to spell, who could blame anyone for using an erroneous initialism for said company's trademark.
