It's like, how much more black could this be? And the answer is none. None more black.

Magnolia looks the best out of the two movies in Blu-ray, picture wise. I have to judge it more when it's released though. Now it's only Hard Eight left that I wish was upgraded. :yabbse-undecided: PDL isn't that appealing but maybe I'll change my mind if there's someone here who thinks it's a worthy purchase.

PDL is the one with the best / most unique cinematography and sound design.

That was almost what I thought too, glad it was confirmed. :yabbse-smiley:

in fact with time i'm getting increasingly inclined to believe Punch Drunk Love is his best film.

I watched parts of the Boogie Blu-ray yesterday and it looks great.  I wish I had had time to watch the whole thing... made me remember how much I loved it.

I'm not that blown away with the quality of the blu-ray, actually.  The image was good but not great, and the audio seemed really muddy at times.  It's still Boogie Nights on blu-ray, but I didn't think it was that big of a step up from the DVD.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

I don't really have a decent enough sound system to judge based on the sound (which was great compared to how I watched it previous).

The picture looked great to me, but really I didn't watch a lot.  Too bad.

Still... Boogie Nights on Blu-Ray.

Nope. There aren't even color bars.

Amazon has Magnolia on Blu-Ray for $14.50 right now. Do you think it's worth upgrading at that price?

if you live in toronto (and i'm assuming ontario/canada) HMV and Best Buy have been having a 3 pack special Magnolia/Boogie Nights/Eternal Sunshine for 30 bucks. I think it's an Alliance/Atlantis promotion.
the one last hit that spent you...

Finally bought Boogie Nights and Magnolia on blu-ray and they arrived last night so I watched them both until 6am. Gorgeous. I hadn't watched Magnolia in its entirety in years and I think I see all its faults now. The Wise Up scene in particular is pretty bad. Watching it, I was reminded of all the things I loved and would think about for so long. The opening is so great. I watched the trailer a few times too. Still my favorite trailer of all time.

Boogie Nights is still flawless. I want to find that part in the commentary where they talk about the time Burt Reynolds punched PTA in the face and broke his glasses. I remember PTA trying to change the subject when that was brought up. Am I imagining things?

I can't wait for PDL to come out on blu-ray. I'm surprised it hasn't yet.
