Moriarty hypes HD-DVD release of Serenity. "I've talked to someone who has seen this transfer, someone who actually works in the production end of the DVD business, and they were knocked out by the picture quality on SERENITY."

Anyone who has the proper player to give this bad-boy a spin, raise your hand...still, very nice to see it's one of the initial titles to hit the marketplace. They probably know Joss' rabid following combined with this release could cause a major spike in console sales, heh.

I might add that, assuming I didn't miss some WW casting speculation in this link and it hasn't already been posted by someone else, I may in fact have my very first successful Whedonesque link post! First I'd like to thank Joss, my beautiful wife, and all the fans out there who made this possible...
MrArg is the most talent person I've evah worked with! I want his/her babies. I'd like to thank the world *sobs*.

You are one lucky, lucky man.
We all know Joss is a hybrid unicorn, silly.
And to think that I will be buying something I can't watch yet. I never thought this day would come.
I'm holding out for the Betamax version.
I am expecting want the cast to come to my house and do a version with shadow puppets.

Hmmm. I've said too much. ;-)
So long as they're high-definition shadows, those low-def ones are soo 20th century.

Well, if flares can come back ...

As someone said in another thread, this could really sell a lot of copies since sci-fi films with lots of action, colours/contrast and effects are usually first pick for demonstrating new TVs to prospective buyers. It'll be like a million little adverts playing constantly.
You know Saje, you could very well be right. It might do more for the movie than anything else, heh, which won't be too hard, heh. I like that visual: a million little adverts showing in Yorkshire, San Francisco, Istanbul, Hanoi, Seoul, Stockholm, Dar Es Salaam, even Kandahar and Teheran. Who knows, peace might break out because everyone stays home to enjoy Serenity ;)
billz, my twin...shadow puppets?! Awesome!

But imagine if they did it with real puppets?! Cute, wide-mouthed puppet Operative menacingly intoning, "Do you know what your sin is, doctor?" would be awesome on multiple levels.
Real puppets, UnpluggedCrazy? Kewl! Just so long as they don't bring SmileTime puppets! ;-)
In terms of Mrarg's post, shouldn't he be thanking his wife first then Joss? I think he has got some 'splaining to do lucy!

And I am not that enthused about this release. I certainly wont buy it, couldnt afford it at the moment, then there is the player, and then you have to buy the right tv. I dont think so...
Heh, kurya, trust me, you don't know my wife.
Hey Gossi, I hear MrArg has a delightfully elvish firstborn and a second on the way, just for the record. If, after all, you really want his babies.

And Kurya, well, you heard the man. We know who's boss around here. . .
We all know who is boss. And this sounds very pretty, yet I am still saving up and buying the BTVS, ATS, and Firefly series. In that order. So I won't be able to see the pretty.

Plus first post so Yay.

Yeah when DVD first came out the first DVD I bought was The Fifth Element. I hadn't got the chance to see the movie previously, a friend had kinda told me about it, but yeah bought the movie sight unseen simply because of the 10-12 titles offered at launch it was the only one offered that had the potential to show me the kind of quality I'd been promised. In retrospect it's a great movie, but also in retrospect I don't know of a single early adopter of DVD that doesn't have a copy of the Fifth Element, hell some companies were giving a copy away with their DVD players to make people feel good about buying it. So yeah this can only be good for our little movie that could.

If I had a nice widescreen or plasma tv, something that would actually be able to display the quality of the HD-DVD I'd buy the thing. Seeing as I don't though I'll hold off for a while.
