Been looking forward to this release since the day after the event. For the second time in as many tries, I was not able to order a HD PPV from Time Warner NYC and had to settle for SD.
My TV is not fully calibrated yet, but the brightness, contrast and color are more than acceptable right now.
-The WM entrance set looked absolutely stunning. What a difference between SD and HD. The colors were extremely vibrant and the detail was strong. Had the MitB match taken place at night, John Morrison’s entrance would clearly have been the best.
-The (dangerous) pyro looked fantastic.
-Some of the “airship” shots, surprisingly, did not appear that much better in HD.
-Even during the matches, people sitting on the field and in the lower bowl were distinguishable.
Did they remove the WM XXV date & location announcement? That seems strange.
I thought even the cut down 10 minute Rock roast was too long. It felt like one of those stupid Comedy Central roasts that they had about 31 of last year.
I don't know why, but somehow this whole WMXXIV Blu Ray thing has lit a fire under me again as far as getting an HDTV goes. I'm actually saving money for one again, with the sole purpose being to get to see this set.
WWE never has good Saturday night ratings no matter whats on. They dont give you much of a reason to watch either. I mean, if Orlando Jordan is in your main event, its not looking too good. For some reason Heat seems to be a much better B level show.
