Default definitive proof that hd dvd bitrates are crippling blu-ray

from hd digest i was reading the review(givien 4 stars[hes bias twords vc-1]) and here is part of it
Quote:
I did catch a few small bursts of artifacting, but I likely would have missed each instance if I hadn't specifically been looking for it. In fact, the only real nitpick I have with the picture quality of 'Ocean's Eleven' is that quick pinpoints of white randomly flick on the print throughout the film. Still, compared to the muddy standard DVD, this Blu-ray edition is an absolute godsend. Fans will be extremely pleased to see how great 'Ocean's Eleven' looks in high definition.
and the hd dvd says same thing

the audio the hd dvd audi includes:
Audio Formats
  • English Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 Surround (640kbps)
  • French Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 Surround
  • Spanish Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 Surround
  • Japanese 5.1 Surround on 'Ocean's Eleven' and 'Twelve'
and the blu-ray audio:
Audio Formats
  • English Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround (640kbps)
  • French Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround
  • Spanish Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround
  • German, Italian, and Japanese DD 5.1 Surround on 'Ocean's Eleven' and 'Twelve'
no lpcm or thd or high res audio? this was part of the reason why poeple boy coted paramount titels


then i read the pirates 3 review and i accept that he gave the movie 4 out of 5 and hes the reason why
Quote:
Unfortunately, I don't feel I can give 'At World's End' the same five-star video rating I gave 'Curse of the Black Pearl' and 'Dead Man's Chest,' because I found a few inconsistencies a bit too hard to ignore. Noise is the biggest problem -- I noticed it at times on fleshtones, as well as areas of static color. Even more troublesome, it can be glaringly obvious on areas of bright white, such as the entire surreal sequence with Depp playing multiple versions of Captain Jack Sparrow. Blacks also waver, with a few scenes looking quite flat and lacking in depth. Although these are not fatal problems considering the beauty of the rest of the presentation, 'At World's End' left me only very satisfied, and not blown away as I was with the first two 'Pirates' flicks on Blu-ray.
i think he should start doing doubel blind tests when reviewing hes movies (for warner movies he dosent know which format it is on then for other movie not to know which codecs are used)

What I find funny about all of this is the fact that they actually use a quote from his review in the promo's for the Pirates Blu-Rays... Pretty messed up if you ask me.

We need another reviewer (I assume Peter) bashing thread?

Did you know the Ocean's box review was by Ken Brown... and the Pirates of the Caribbean review was by Peter Bracke. Even if they were reviewed by the same person, I still don't get your point at all; they totally dissimilar movies that can't be directly compared.

ClaytonMG, Peter's review of Pirates 3 is still very good!
