I had intended to include a frame of the Vudu preview but completely forgot. Added it now. I also see that today's 99-cent movie is Watchmen DC so I've grabbed that to compare with my multiple Blu-ray copies.
I'm not impressed by the few 1080p iTunes videos I've seen so far. After reading the short Ars Technica piece I was expecting good things. The start of the Breaking Bad ep with the B&W pool looks like garbage watching the 1080p copy, full of compression artifacts, while the 720p is much more stable. Midnight in Paris is stripped of the grain and the texture detail along with it.
