Rashomon: From DVD to Blu-ray (with images)!

Rashomon: From DVD to Blu-ray (with images)!

I’m amazed by differences between DVD and Blu-ray. What we thought to be great with DVD was often not that great, and I guess it’ll be the same with Blu-ray.

Take for example Kurosawa’s Rashomon (1950), and compare the american Criterion disc with the recent japanese remastered Blu-ray:

Top: DVD (Criterion)
Bottom: Blu-ray (Japan version)

  1. Le rendu est purement incroyable pour un film si ancien !
    Reste à savoir si le dvd upscalé en HD rend de la même façon, ou si le bluray à été totalement restaurés image par image voir remasterisé.
    Merci pour cette comparaison.
