I recently bought a bunch of bluray films, including Speed Racer. I decided to buy that film on bluray because I thought that it would be a perfect show case for high-definition. The film was nothing but colours and special effects. I started watching it and then I got a shock. There was a lot of detail in the film. Not only were the nasal hairs of Royalton rendered clearly, I could even see the bits of boogers stuck to them!
Now, I can understand why the porn industry has been generally staying away from high-definition videos. There is just so much detail in them, more than the normal eye can see. So, someone needs to be really careful and meticulous about their looks in order to look good in them. I can see future make-up artists being sent for special hi-def make-up classes to learn how to cover-up more of their clients’ flaws.
If anyone is curious, the list of blurays that I had recently bought – Moon, District 9, Terminator Salvation, Ironman, 300, Pan’s Labyrinth, Speed Racer, Matrix Trilogy, Wall-E, Final Fantasy Advent Children, District B13/Ultimate and Planet Earth. So, I have now a small collection of bluray films on top of my PS3 games.
