Nothing beats vampires, half vampires, Dracula himself, and of course Wesley Snipes.... well the important thing is that its on Blu-ray and the versions offer a few different looks.  There is a Canadian release by Alliance and a Dutch release by E1 Entertainment Benelux.  Both of them are on single layer Blu-ray discs but still manage to have bitrates over 20 mbps.

I have a tough time coming down on these. The Dutch encode seems to have a bit more detail but I'm not in love with the darker look of it. The audio has a much beefier bitrate on the Canadian disc. Its not obviously clear to me which to choose. Instead I'll hope for a US encode that makes use of a dual layer disc.

Iron Man


Iron Man. I really enjoyed watching this movie in the theaters and after waiting for it to come out on Blu-ray I can still say the movie looks amazing. We are looking for perfection though and that is why we need to wade through these versions and pick out the best. There are 3 unique video transfers of this film that I know of. Paramount released it in the USA, Concorde Video released it in Germany, and Sony released it Spain. Thanks to some avid fans I didn't have to do much of the legwork in finding 1:1 comparison shots. The USA version will be overloaded with shots as it is the transfer that the other films are compared off of.

I have a tough time coming down on these transfers. The USA, Germany, and France transfers both look great and the differences are startlingly small. They both pick up on a good amount of grain while leaving the film looking crisp. The Spanish transfer is markedly darker. At first this is a bit pleasing to the eyes but the blacks get crushed in dark scenes such as the cave scene. Furthermore the picture looks a bit over sharpened. Only because of the hard coded subtitles issue will I stay away from the German version.  Between the French and American versions it comes down to whether you prefer DTS-HD MA or Dolby TrueHD.
Note* There is now a 2 disc edition of Iron Man available using the same transfer as the USA one. Also- the UK version is contains the same video as the USA version.

Update 3/9/2010

I took some time and fixed some broken links to pictures, etc. I'll be adding a few more HD comparisons to this site soon. I've just been busy. Peace.
