God's Not Dead
I arrived home from our trip and found a copy of this movie in my mail, a gift from my oldest daughter. The PQ is quite good, with excellent DETAILS (in clothing, campus buildings, foliage, and especially in facial close-ups), appreciable DEPTH, warm and vibrant COLORS, satisfying BLACK LEVELS and SHADOW DETAILS, accurate FLESH TONES, and, in most scenes, above average SHARPNESS & CLARITY.
The only negatives that I noticed were some soft focus shots, a bit of noise in a couple of shots, and a few instances of banding.
If not for the rare anomalies just mentioned, I would be tempted to go with a low Tier 0 or a high Tier 1. It's still a definite Tier Gold contender and I'm in favor of....
Tier Recommendation: 1.5*
Viewed from 7.5' using the equipment listed below....
