This may be old news but this is one tough film to reproduce.
I tried watching it a couple years ago on my DPI Dvision and it looked so awful I stopped. I chalked it up to a bad transfer.
Watched it last nice and flipped through a couple presets-combination of JVC RS49 projector & Lumagen settings/calibrations.
The only setting that provided a stunning image was my new BT.1886 calibration.
I'm going to watch it on my big rig in 3D as I think the JVC just won't have enough light for this one.
Some scenes look like they were shot with a single candle for illumination.

I would go as far to say if this movie looks amazing on your system you are dialed in.
Give it watch and let us know what you think.

Interesting. Any parts/chapters specifically you'd recommend? I have this movie but haven't watched it in a long time.
