Seems a bit silly to have this in hi-def, per IMDB it was filmed using a 16mm Arri SR-2 camera and used Kodak Plus-X film, decidely NOT hi-def. Oh well, for those that must have everything in BRD, here’s another.

First off, I love this movie. With that said, it is not worth upgrading this film to blu-ray. As stated in another review, this film was a low budget film shot on cheap low resolution black & white film stock. It may as well have been filmed with a camcorder.

The blu ray version is also way over priced. Giving this film a blu ray “upgrade” makes as much sense as giving “The Blair Witch Project” a blu ray transfer. The source material is crap. If you must have everything blu ray, that’s fine, but wait awhile as this one will surely drop in price.

Although Kevin Smith is not the most cinamatic film maker, that doesn’t mean his films shouldn’t be on hi-def. Fortunately, all his films have been given grand treatment on blu-ray (Jersey Girl, a non askewaverse film has not yet showed up on the format) his first film is over-due.

First of all, Clerks is a first-rate silly-movie full of some of the best dialogue ever put on the screen – Smith is like a non-violent Tarintino. It’s not for everyone, firstly it’s a bit dated and second it’s not the go for endless laughs sort of film like Superbad or 40 Year Old Vergin that people are now used to.

So why put a film shot on cheap cameras, edited in a video store on a table during working hours and shot on Smith’s credit-card budget? Because, you’re HDTV has 1080 lines of resolution and your DVD has 480. Can Clerks ever look chrystal clear and razor sharp, nope, but can it look just like the best possible print projected on a large screen? Yes! Watching Clerks on DVD on an HDTV is going to introduce jaggeed lines and added distortion to an already grainy film, watching it on blu-ray, you see exactly what is on the original film, just like it looks on the film.

Is it worth an upgrade??? Hm, let me see, YES!

I don’t think some people really understand blu-rays. Movies like this that might be “lo-def” can still look and sound better on Blu-ray simply because the image and sound isn’t compressed as it would be on a DVD.

If you’re interested in upgrading you’ll be very pleased with the overall presentation along with a bonus documentary on the making of Jay and Silent Bob. Smith fans will definitely want to check this out.

If you haven’t seen Clerks yet you’re missing out. It’s one of the best comedies released in the 90’s.
