Agree, this belongs in the Dutch forum. However, you can see for yourself by going to this site.

Only a mod can move it. PM one of the mods listed at the bottom of the forum and ask for them to move it.

I own the nl Blade 1, 2 and 3. I haven't seen the US versions so I have no idea how they compare. The nl discs are BD25's only so there's clearly room for improvement.

Edit - here are some links to NL/US comparisons of the Blade trilogy:

Blade 1:

Blade 2:

http://caps-a-holic.com/hd_vergleich...&hd_multiID=38

Blade Trinity:

http://caps-a-holic.com/hd_vergleich...&hd_multiID=37

Take a look and decide for yourself which is best. The bit rates are much higher on the US releases.

Interesting to note that screenshot 1 of Blade 2 has a unusually highly cropped/zoomed image on the US version.

Worth noting that the nl Blade Trinity is theatrical rather than extended - not an issue for me as I massively prefer the theatrical cut.

SymbioticFunction whats your thoughts on it do you think picture quality in general is better on the nl version?

Hmmm. My thoughts (for what it's worth). The US versions look pretty good to me. I certainly can't see any particular reason to import (unless you were maybe after a theatrical version of the 3rd film). Despite the lower bit rate and file size, it looks like there is slightly more detail on the nl Blade 2 but it's nothing particularly significant. The only reason I bought the nl blu-rays is because they were available much earlier. Stick with your domestic US versions (which come with extras - the nl discs are bare bones) and save your money.

SymbioticFunction it looks like in certain scenes colors and darkness levels are better on the nl release i'm not sure on contrast though.

I'd be happy with the PQ on the US versions. I see no great reason to import Blade 2. Trinity: I guess it depends on which cut you prefer - extended or theatrical.

Edit: Was perusing the forum and just read someone posting that the nl Blade Trinity is out of print anyway:

https://forum.blu-ray.com/showpost.p...postcount=7400

I guess that a theatrical cut of Blade Trinity on a region friendly disc was much sought after. Makes me wonder if nl Blade 2 is also even currently available?
