Interview with director Christopher Nolan
Interview with star Guy Pearce


So I'm guessing these are new.

The interview with Chis is also included on the 1-disc version. (At least the Dutch release). That one takes about 30 minutes.

Does the DVD version have a commentary as well?

I bought the 2 disc special edition (not Blu Ray).

Yeah it had a directors commentry the DVD.

Quite funny at the end, you can tell Nolan hates doing it.

"Can I go now" Nolan
Can't hear what the other guy is saying but then there is a noise which I think is Nolan dropping the microphone rather aggresivly :lol:

35mm is pretty much the current standard for film. The Dark Knight (non-IMAX scenes), Batman Begins, and Iron Man were all shot in 35mm.


Well I have noticed that smaller film's still use a cheaper/different format. Not trained in film to be fair but if you look at Heat and The Dark Knight for example.
You will notice Heat has a less quality pitcure than the 35 mm scenes of The Dark Knight as well, even though they are both 35mm.
Maybe the process in post production is better, I don't know tbh but it could be camera as well etc.


Its because the digital transfer of The Dark Knight is direct from a brand new print. The digital transfer of Heat was from a 10 year old print. The cameras are the same and so are the lenes. Smaller budget films may use cheaper film stock, but it is still 35mm film, the same format. Also it has to do with how good of a transfer the Blu Ray is. I thought The Dark Knight was a horrible transfer, pretty much everything from WB can't compete with the quality of paramount and disney. I don't know why, they just aren't as good.

Well, it arrived today (finally!) I just watched it, and wow was that amazing. At this point I think it was worth it given the picture, sound, and story quality (obviously). And although I 've already seen the featurette that's included, I have yet to listen to Mr. Nolan's commentary. I'll wait a while, then return for that later.

I say thumbs up :thumbup:
