image host
I'm still amazed that I've never watched this movie. I really feel like I need to be in the right mood to watch it and I'm never quite in that mood. Its got quite a cult following and it looks like the studios have been putting in some effort to release a clean blu-ray transfer. We'll compare three of them: The US BR, the French BR, and the Canadian BR.

The US transfer looks much cleaner than the other two keeping much more grain and detail than any of the other transfers. It also has a different tint to it which I personally like better. The colors seem much richer as well.

Domino

image host Domino came out in 2005 and wasn't a huge hit. I saw it in theaters and besides leaving me a bit nauseous I really enjoyed the movie. I'm only comparing two masters of the movie. The New Line released the US version in January of 2009 while Paramount released the Spanish (Region B) release in October of 2008.
