Then I just thought, jeez, I mean, even her face is not even close to what I'm experiencing on television broadcast. This is an extremely close representation of what I am seeing on my screen. Doesn't this look extremely grainy?
Thanks for all the input...
First off, I do notice that the picture has a lot of red push. In that regard, it is not an accurate depiction of what I'm seeing -- at least with respect to color. But it is accurate wrt the graininess.
Second, I am using a crap ass thinkpad laptop monitor, so I have no idea how this picture is looking on all your monitors.
Finally, I spoke with three individuals that have ps3, spiderman 3, and some form of HDTV. None of these people are videophiles like the community here is, but they all certainly have eyes. And to my surprise, all three of them said that spiderman 3 looked very grainy on their tvs too (1080p sammy lcd, 720p projector, 720p sammy plasma). Whereas, other blurays looked great.
Terrax, the aunt/ring scene didn't look grainy at all for you and your wife? None at all?
Anyway, I think I'm going to stop trying to figure out whats wrong, and wait until I get my other blurays - particularly Planet Earth, and see what that looks like. Thanks again.
