I just compared discs and the difference is indeed incredible. I went straight to the Underworld Awakening title screen and the black bars blend in perfectly with the background. On the 3D disc you see the black bars clearly because the background is a dark blue. I skipped around to various scenes and the 2D disc looks perfect, just how I remember it in theaters (I saw it 4 times so I remember clearly). The 2D copy also looks a little sharper. I look forward to watching this tomorrow because this is how it truly should look. I have no clue what Sony was thinking, they really washed out the 2D movie on the 3D disc. I implore people to rent the disc at Red Box and see for yourself how much better the movie looks. It's amazing!
