Default Silent Hill PQ

I got to watch half of this last night. I bought the USA version, its fantastic PQ. I can't imagine whats better about the German version.

I think people on this forum actually look for problems with prints. Personally I think its a good print.

either you will love it or hate it...

interesting side story in the Silent Hill realm...but, if you have never played the games, it comes off with a lot of holes in the storyline.

I really enjoyed it....can't complain about Pyramid Head in hidef.

There's compression artifacts in the U.S. release that aren't in the German one. Different codecs were used. I'm not saying that the U.S. disc is bad in any way shape or form.

I'm so glad I have the German release. Obviously the differences will be subtle but those who are good with detecting the common problems will notice them.

I suppose the German version won't work for us here in the states.

I liked the movie because I'm a fan of the games. I'll admit that I had to do quite a bit of explaining to people who have never played the game. Regardless of PQ, I'll pick up this title just because I like the film and I don't have it on standard DVD right now.
Folks bothered by other folks not using the "Search" function probably spend more time talking about Blu than actually watching them.

amazon.de is the best place. It's also one of their cheaper BD's. It features HD audio of English and German as well as German subtitles. No English subtitles.

Thanks for the info.

I got the German DVD of SH, and even with English language, they darn well forced subtitles on signs. When even the dumbest German would have been able to figure it out. Eg,

"Willcommen aus Silent Hill" (or something) when the "Welcome to Silent Hill" sign appeared. Nothing like that on the Blu Ray?

Thats true I noticed a lot of people watch a great film but just look for the bad details. Like my Moma always says always look at the good things in life.
IMO The movie "300" is supposed to look grainy. Isnt it supposed to be a film straight from the novel. Kind of like comic pages. That was my impression.

I watched the rest of it now, i'd give it a solid 4/5. Some parts are 5/5. I'd say any codec issues are negligible. I thought I was buying a predator or a sleepy hollow.

Silent Hill looked pretty good for one of the early BDs but it does have its flaws to the trained eye. The German Blu-ray looks a little better(though be aware it's just a bitrate starved HD DVD encode). I imagine when this title gets double dipped by Sony that it will look much better though. This movie needs 50 GB for maximum quality.
