If you look at the Starz web site, Gangs of NY is not listed as a HD movie. I think it is only an upconvert. It doesn't look bad but it's not truly HD either. At least that's my take, if someone else knows better maybe they can enlighten me.
Starz-HD states on their site that is not an HD transfer. The same with the Hulk. I do not know now why they don't come out and explain what is it then. I have asked numerous time what they mean when they show a widescreen movie in OAR but it is not designated as OAR on their website. It just seems strange that some of these movies without "True HD" designation look very good - like the Hulk while others do not -like Chicago. I haven't seen Gangs of NY. But I hope to catch it.
I'm really curious about the Finding Nemo premiere tomorrow night. The guide doesn't show the
logo and the same goes for Monsters Inc.
These are two great movies that I'd like to see in HD. Why doesn't StarzHD do more actual HD stuff? Are there contracts that tell them they're not allowed to show them in HD? I really wood like the inside scoop on this.
No one else saw strange vertical bars in the picture this weekend?
I watched the gangs of new york this weekend and there were a series of veritcal bars spaced throughout the picture. the picture was OAR and you could see indentations into the top and bottom black bars, and when an actor moved on the screen into one of them there was slight distortion. First time Ive seen this.
