Probably it can. Just like an uncompressed FLAC audio file can reveal flaws in a sound source you never noticed in a compressed MP3 file. Similarly, when I get new and stronger glasses, I notice that I look even uglier than before.

16mm film will under normal circumstances have a higher resolution than what Blu Ray offers, but camera quality, lightning, treatment of film, etc. plays a role. Many modern TV shows are shot in 16mm and looks superior in full HD compared to DVD. Given a source, I really don't think a DVD will ever look better than a Blu Ray unless someone seriously fucks up the transfer to the latter.


Sounds good. As far as I know I have never seen a flick on blu ray. And now I've discovered that the player I bought a few months ago is in fact a BR player. So I guess I know what I'm going to buy now regarding Roxy. Lame? Maybe.

You are in for a treat. I can hardly watch a DVD anymore, being accustomed to Blu Ray. It is like when DVDs came out, your VHS tapes suddenly looked way worse than you thought. :lol:

May I not get addicted. I already have a music collecting problem. Guess that's why I've avoided it until... Oct 30, 2015?

Yes. As you may have heard, Black people participate in the Roxy movie.

I'll buy the blu for the hi res audio as much as the video. I'll sneak the CD as a download, and hope we get a more complete Roxy as a Project/Object in the future.

I really hope we see more of the P/O releases sooner rather than later, everyone released so far is a gem.

I see they are charging $24.99 for both blu-ray versions (with, or without the CD). Strange thing to do. Mistake? Time will tell. :?

Probably a mistake. That site seems fucking shady anyway. I'm not ordering from them.

Probably a bunch of Mexicans looking to steal your identity.
