    Wink Best looking DVDs (video) from you collection.

    What are some of your DVDs that can be categorize as having a reference quality video with bright picture, deep colors, clarity, etc. I may want to add it to my collection

    Here are few from my collection...........

    3000 miles From Graceland. This is the best looking DVD I have ever seen.


    Trading Places. Excellent detail.


    A Perfect World. Outdoor scenes are gorgeous (alot of greens).


    Spiderman I&2. Fly around the buildings with Spideman


    Summer Rental. Exquisite care was taken with this DVD transfer.


    Tom and Jerry Spotlight Collection 2. Cartoons never looked better.


    Star Trek II (Khan). Few noises here and there, but other wise perfect.


    Thanks.

    Hey Smokey,

    As you know there was a Sound & Vision top ten list and, as I recall, it was pretty decent. Frankly, there are a lot of films that provide a spectacular visual presentation. A few that I have recently revisited are:

    Attachment 2126
    Tears of the Sun which looks good, and...

    Attachment 2127
    American Psycho Uncut which looks and makes me laugh uncontrollably, and...

    Attachment 2128
    Aeon Flux which looks good and makes me smile for a completely different reason (heard it had a plot, too)

    So, I broke into the palace
    With a sponge and a rusty spanner
    She said : "Eh, I know you, and you cannot sing"
    I said : "That's nothing - you should hear me play piano"

    Hey Bobsticks

    Thanks for recommendation. Yes, I am aware of S&V top ten DVD in terms of video and sound. Just wanted to expand my horizon.

    Getting DVD with good quality seem to be a hit and miss thing. Even newer releases donít guaranty a good quality video. I guess it depend on how much care was taken during the transfer, and how much compression.

    I am going to name a few of the better restored films for picture and sound....

    LAWRENCE OF ARABIA Superbit Edition
    SECONDS (1966) Awesome b&w
    OKLAHOMA 2-Disc Sp. edition in both CinemaScope and Todd-AO transfers
    YOUTH OF THE BEAST (Criterion Ed.)
    THE SEARCHERS (HD-DVD)
    EYES WITHOUT A FAC (Criterion Ed.)
    SLEEPING BEAUTY (2-disc Sp. Ed.) Great example of color fidelity in a animated feature.

    I know everyone has this by now, but:

    The Matrix

    The subtlety of the real world vs. the Matrix (slightly greener) is a brilliant use of DVD.

    And I have to second Hero -- just a gorgeous use of colour.
