Here's a thread for all Hot Fuzz DVD related things (obviously).

According to Amazon.co.uk and easyCinema.com the DVD release date for Hot Fuzz is 11 June 2007. Probably subject to change! If that's true then that's 12 weeks today, WOO - HOOO!!!

Not counting down the days or anything ... laugh.gif

Not sure.
And do you need to have a proper HD-DVD player to really feel the difference?


Oh god. My bf is going to want one. I can tell already.

Yes. And the cheapest ones are going for between $400-500 USD right now. Also, you're going to need a high-definition television.

Basically, the HD-DVD -- like the BluRay Disc -- is like a DVD, except with much greater data capacity. That greater data capacity allows for the film to be encoded at a much higher resolution, with space left over for an audio track with less compression and more channels than can typically fit on a standard DVD.

The DVD standard is based on a resolution of 720x480, or something like that. The only number which is really important is the 480, which is the number of horizontal lines that make up the picture. HD-DVD can support up to 1080 lines of horizontal image data, so, because the resolution is more than twice that of a standard DVD, it's that much crisper.

If you look at a good high-definition television broadcast, with little compression, you'll notice that programmes transmitted in the 1080i (the i stands for interlaced) resolution are so clear they're at times beyond photorealistic. It's the next-best thing to actually being there.

Can HD discs also play on regualr dvd players? ... or would that be a rediculous question?
... A more sensible question is: Can HD-dvd players play regular dvds?
