Regarding people enjoying Langs character... he should have been played by Michael Biehn and it would have been better to give him some.. humanity. But I don't really care, I will never watch this uninteresting (regarding story and tech) film again.

Hopefully Michael Biehn and/or Ahnuld could find themself having a role in part 2! And hopefully it ort of... could find something interesting to tell... in that Pandora universe.

Lang did a great job...he was a nasty piece of work (exactly what the part called for).

However, Biehn or Ahnold are great choices (due to sentimentality when recalling their previous work with Cameron) to play baddies in the sequels.

A.P.S. deserve our protection....join the cause today!

Unfortunately, I will mostly likely do a rare blu-ray double dip on this title, simply because it is THE title to own if you enjoy 3D. But I think I will only double dip if we get the extended cut in 3D.

No, his reference to "blue smurfs" was accurate. In lowly 1080p resolution the CGI does not look realistic at all, although in the theater it did. 2012 is coming to a close and we are still watching a VERY lossy image at home while bragging about how the SOUND is lossless. Ridiculous.

I thought the movie was recorded using 1080p24 cameras and it had a 2K digital intermediate. So what we saw in the theater was an upconversion to film and IMAX.

Although it's "very lossy" percentage wise, when they created the extended version of the film, it was pretty much indistinguishable from the maxed-out bit rate of the theatrical version.

I agree that we are losing color because of the 8 bit color, and 4:2:0, but I don't think it looked any more or less realistic in the theater compared to the blu-ray.

Aw, that's kinda ruined it now. I was hoping that a "jujube" was some random thing that Quaritch came up with. biggrin.gif

Pretty sure the CGI was mostly finished at 4k with some 6k stuff

We've already got a 1.78 2D Blu-ray though. Why would Cameron put a brand-new 2.35 edition out there when he's already stated his overall preference for the 1.78 framing? Don't get me wrongo, I'd love to see it but I don't think it's happening. Those specs have simply been copied from you-know-where which always states an original aspect ratio along with whatever the BD turns out to be.

While I thought the movie was pretty meh, I'll pick this up for the 3D visuals.

I think this could have been the 3d killer app and who ever agreed to the exclusive stuff was an idiot, I doubt it did much for Panasonic sales and it probably reduced demand for 3d TV's and players overall.

Stupid to hold back a popular movie that was made for 3D viewing.

but yeah the movie itself for meh, atypical action thin story blah ZZZZZ but the visuals were pretty cool and will be worth watching at least once in 3d at home.
