Default Req: Web of Death DVD Comparison

Does anyone have the Aussie Siren and/or German MIB DVDs of this Chu Yuan title?

I'd like to know which is better?

The Hong Kong IVL only has a 5.1 remix and the American Well Go is interlaced.

most of the German MIB Discs are horribly encoded, so i'll pick these only as last option... i have the Aussie Disc somewhere...

The Well Go blu-ray looks good. Probably the best looking version currently out there if you have a blu-ray player.

I do have Blu Ray but I think I'd rather own a progressive DVD than an interlaced BD.

The MIB discs I own are: The Blood Brothers, Shaolin Temple, 12 Gold Medallions, The Water Margin. I don't own any Siren DVDs.

I'll take proper HD (720p, 1080i/p) over SD anytime... every time

Seriously, though, I am almost 100% positive that the blu-ray will look better than any of the DVD versions out there. I only compared it to the IVL DVD and it kicked the living hell out of that.

Go with the Siren.

Don't forget Ronin, the IVLs are all PAL-NTSC so they look worse then a dvd should.

I know, that is why I will "upgrade" any of my IVL DVDs if given the chance. Still think the blu-ray is going to be superior to any of the DVDs out there. It can also be had for under $20 and is playable on Region A & B players.

Does an interlaced BD suffer the same ghosting as an interlaced DVD? I sometimes find ghosting quite noticeable and distracting.

Haven't noticed any ghosting on any of the 1080i blu-rays I own. They all look solid.
