'Army of Darkness' Is Brighter And Crisper Than Ever On HD-DVD
Slow news day today but blogcritics.org did a review today of Army of Darkness on the new HD-DVD. Many people aren't buying into the whole HD-DVD hype as of yet, but when the players do go down in price, I think Army of Darkness is a movie that some fans might contemplate in buying on HD-DVD. Here is an excerpt on the new video transfer of Army of Darkness on the HD-DVD:
"AoD is an old film, and I recall that the picture was rather grainy and a little murky the last time I watched it. Thankfully, the transfer was well done, for the most part. The picture overall looks brighter and crisper. You can see every pore and wrinkle on Ash's face, and for the first time his blue shirt really looks blue rather than a muddy brown. However, a few scenes retained their grainy look, primarily during the Evil Dead II recap at the beginning of AoD."
Army of Darkness is a classic movie, but I still think in whatever form you watch the movie, whether it be in HD-DVD, Blue Ray, DVD, or even VHS, you will still have a blast and end up cheering when Bruce says "Hail to the King" at the end of the film. There were no special features on the HD-DVD version of the film, so you might as well stick with your DVD version that you all likely have. You can read the full article here.
