Blood Diamond - Tier 5. Inconsistent image throughout, and the worst parts are really, really bad.

I think we should start fresh on the list, it would be more work but more people would feel like their opinions were factored into the rankings.

my .02

FWIW I think the best thing about the tier list is being able to compare the PQ of movies you haven't seen with movies you have seen. (I realize that was probably the original intent, but it seems that needs to be clarified)

Is your TV calibrated ? I don't think it deserve to be any lower than Tier 2.

The guys started something in the HD DVD section as well. You both may want to ck to see what each other are doing and try to adopt the same system.

Ether way best of luck

Thanks for restarting.

I hope you have a thick skin!

Even though people aren't going to agree 100% with the Tier rankings, this serves as a good general reference point. Not dead-on nailing the quality, but close enough to get an idea of what looks good and what doesn't.

I don't know about starting over, there's a lot of good info already here for reference.

I suggest that we build off this list. If folks have suggestions for titles to be repositioned, that we address them as a group.

I don't care what people say - it'll never make everyone happy anyway. Voting will minimize things I hope. I could use a few volunteers to setup the polling threads weekly and ease the burden though; PM if interested.

Once a poll decides which tier a title will be placed, who / how will it be determined where it's placed within the tier???

Good Question - Open to Suggestions; perhaps replies within the polling thread concerning placement should be reviewed and used to determine where within the winning tier it goes. For example if Tier 3 gets the most votes and only one person gives feedback as to where it belongs within tier 3 that'd be where I'd put it...

How you gonna come along and make a comment like that? I found the FETT thread VERY useful as a new blu-rayer and I don't think it should die just because the guy left do you? The system worked pretty well from my standpoint and with a little democracy we can help others get feedback on movie PQ and add value.

Yes, calibrated 112" screen being viewed from DLP projector, as well as watching it on a 61" LCOS rear projection set. This is Talladega Nights/The Fifth Element territory when it comes to picture quality at the worst parts. And it's not that it doesn't look good in parts, but it's completely inconsistent and the bad parts are really, really bad. And I think, if this Tier thread is still about picture quality, the picture has to be judged on it's worst images if there are this many of them or the quality varies so wildly so often. Just my opinion.

Sounds good. However, your poll has a Tier 0-4, but there is a Tier 5. Is that a forum limitation? If so, will you be merging Tiers 4 and 5 in the thread?

Don't forget Weeds season 1. I vote for near the top of tier 3 or maybe mid tier 2. Its inconsistent. Still bought it and love the show though !

I am not sure how Apocalypto, and Casino Royale (Teir 2?!) were put so low on the list. Also Pirates CoTB should be in Tier 1. And how can MI:3 be well above Apocalypto and Casino Royale with the crushed blacks?
