5.0 out of 5 stars Great movie shame about the blu-ray, 16 April 2008
This review is from: St Trinian's [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
i`d been waiting to see this movie having heard good things about it....i was not disappointed by the movie itself, which kept the spirit and wit of the original movies and brought them up to date. However entertainment in video`s claim this is FULL 1080 HD is not entirely honest, granted it shows in 1080i but the quality of the `high definition` is little above that of an upscaled DVD. Save your pennies and buy the dvd instead

I just wanted to confirm what the above poster says about the resolution.

I've just picked this up, and am currently only 60 seconds into it, and my projector is showing 1080i50, so it's definitely not full 1080p (which is 1080p24)

Too early to tell how the whole film looks, but I just wanted to confirm that as stated, this ISN'T a "Full 1080" resolution movie, but it is 1080i.

Out of nearly 200 blurays, this is the first film I've got that isn't 1080p.

EDIT: and for the rest of it, it has DTS-MA 7.1 sound (as well as a DD5.1) and uses the AVC video codec.
Just randomly while I'm watching the opening scenes, the average bitrate is hovering around 20mbps. Definitely looks more detailed than merely upscaling a DVD too.

I have just ordered this title, mainly so I can test high bitrate 1080i50 content on HTPC setups (e.g. offloading of deinterlacing to the GPU). High definition television is 720P or 1080i, however the bitrates are quite a bit lower.

Any resolution from 720p to 1080p is defined as "High Definition", and is significantly more detailed than DVD.
