I can't see this looking that much better on BD.

Brilliant film though, obviously.

If they've done a good job on it it should look spectacular, much better than the DVD.

Maybe. But I'm slowly coming to the conclusion that BD (and HD DVD for that matter), is just DVD for big TVs.

Where as I first viewed HD as the next step in film technology I now view it as being designed to make films acceptable on larger screens where DVD would lose definition.

As long as the HDTV is at least 42", yes. HD is for DVD on big screens. With my 32" I struggle to get excited at new releases being announced on Blu. Sure they look better, but not always THAT much so.

When did 32" become small? It seemed to happen when I fell asleep one night.

I remember 10 years ago seeing my first 32" widescreen CRT in the window of Radio Rentals and thinking "Wow, I have to have that monster"!

I remember the very same thing (almost exactly 10 years ago to the day as well), that the 32" TV was HUGE!!!
In fact, my wife when she first saw it called it "the monster in the corner"

I see what your saying about Blu-ray not looking much better on a 32" screen, it won't be a day & night difference. But do you see yourself "going bigger" some time in the future?

I'm actually regretting getting a 50" Plasma, and am thinking about reverting to 32" LCD screen, though admittedly the Dark Knight IMAX scenes look very good indeed. The big screens are going to heighten the effect of edge-enhancement on Blu-Ray which it looks as though the studios are keen on adding to hi-definition transfers, that was always an major bug-bear of mine on DVD so to see it in HD is very disappointing. I look forward to seeing Ragin' Bull in glorious black and white.

Is it not mostly Warner Bros that are guilty of this?

its strange how warner seem to be taking the most flack on forums for its blu ray releases, yet it was warner who literally turned the tide and ended hd dvds chances of winning.in another turn of irony universal and paramount seem to be the ones pumping out the high quality blu ray discs.

I don't know what films you're watching on BD, but I own over 20titles now and EE is not an issue on any of them.

I take it you don't own a copy of Dark Knight.

This title is in the Amazon 3-for-2 offer, so it's effectively a tenner at the moment.
