Re: But...But I thought Neo was going to bring victory to the HD-DVD Camp?
If the video codec is the same the movie will likely look the same on either format. That is, most reviewers don't notice a difference. If they're not using the same video codec. It's a more subjective. One might look a little sharper than the other but that might create other issues, for example. The audio specs aren't always equal though since a lot of the dual-format releases don't provide the same options, for some reason.
So, if everything is equal, pick which ever one you want.
