one note about the Blu-ray, however, while it's usually better than the DVD in picture quality, it's one of the worst discs i've seen. i've never seen details not just poor, but outright smeared-looking in places. i can't figure out how to even describe it. maybe like a Photoshop paint filter? also present is haloing from poorly supervised edge enhancement.
i haven't seen TOO many of the silver or bronze discs of "a certain site which has a PQ tier ranking system," but i personally would put this disc in Bronze or Coal instead of Silver where it's currently sitting.
The movie quality on the blu-ray is... terrible. There is little to no HD detail on anything, every edge looks incredibly blurry, and compared to other blu-rays on the same and other TVs, it looks really bad. It honestly doesn't look that much different than when my PS3 upscales my DVD copy of the movie. Judging by the case and all that, I'm guessing it was from when blu-ray was just coming out and maybe Miramax didn't really know what they were doing fully just yet.
Any other complaint is just kind of comestic. Like when I started playing the movie, the default sound setting was the 5.1 AC3 audio on the disc instead of Uncompressed PCM available. That much was just weird, I don't even know why there's an AC3 on the disc when PCM is available. Once again, maybe they didn't fully understand how to make the discs yet. Then the menus are sort of obnoxious. They work just fine, but when you click between titles, they make a very loud switch noise that could've either been turned down a bit, replaced, or fully muted. It's louder than anything else on the menu and was just annoying. On top of that, I'm pretty sure it's missing a bonus feature from the DVD - the video for The Unband's cover of "Everybody Wants You" - but I'm sure that was probably a licensing thing and honestly not a major loss since I still own the DVD. All the deleted scenes are still on it, so that's cool.
The movie itself is still pretty good. I rewatched it to see if maybe I was wrong for liking it - maybe it's just as bad as its sequels and spiritual spin-offs. Turns out this one is pretty well done. It feels like they actually spent time trying to focus on the story and spending time making jokes about that rather than just doing blatant reference humor ("Look, it's Jigsaw! That's a joke in itself, right? But make him gay! Har!"). My only problem is just how exaggerated some of the characters are. It's a spoof though - everything is supposed to be magnified to the nth degree so it can directly make fun of it more effectively, but I feel like it spends a little too much time trying to establish Doofy's mental handicap and Ray's homosexuality, and it starts to feel like the joke is a little bit meaner than it should be. Just "Ha! He pooped himself! Because he's stupid!" and "Ha! He called her a man's name when having sex! Because he's clearly gay!" It gets old quick. Everything else is kind of on point though. Still holds up decently.
So unless you can get the blu-ray for cheaper than the DVD, don't bother. The DVD quality isn't that different. Maybe some day Miramax or Lionsgate or someone will rerelease it in a new transfer that actually is HD, but until then, this is kind of a waste of money.
I was pleasantly surprised to see that Amazon had the first one available to view as I personally feel the first 2 are the only Scary Movies worth watching. I will watch this over and over and over again. I believe even though it is vulgar and the jokes can be crude that it's actually a comedy worth something.
