Digital Cinema Package, basically the digital equivalent of a film print. As opposed to watching it on Blu or with a Blu or a DVD projected on a cinema screen. And I've seen both happen sometimes.

I attended a DCP of The Ten Commandments recently, and by the end, my ass was so numb. And the intermission was briefer than I thought it'd be too. By the time I got out of the bathroom, it was already done. Don't get me wrong, the wait for that boxed set is agonizing, but I sure won't we watching it all at once!

The LOTR EE trilogy was quite a feat, but I gotta tell ya, nothing beats a James Bond marathon. Holy crap!

The Hobbit EE trilogy will be a piece of cake. smile.gif

A James Bond Marathon would take like week, wouldn't it tongue.gif?

Just finished watching this last night. Loved the movie. Picture looked great. Didn't get to turn it up much but what I did hear sounded good. No ULF just like everyone says.

Sounds like whatever the film's faults, the disc is a stunner.

Yep. Just watched this and I thought it was awesomely entertaining. Definitely reminded me of howmuch I love these movies. LOTR are some of my favorite movies ever. And though it may not be accurate down to the letter of the book. As entertainment goes it was great. It also looked great and sounded great. My system is no slouch in the bass department , and sure ulf is fun but, I didn't really feel like I was missing anything while watching. I hope I don't ever get to the point of some of the guys on this forum. Seems like if you get so focused on finding the faults in the audio or video that you might forget to enjoy the show.

A definite recommend on this one. could it have been made better in certain respects? Sure. But it was more than good enough to provide a very satisfying home theater experience. I mean if you like the scifi/fantasy genre and this one doesn't make you happy then seems like you'll be very limited in the movies you will be satisfied with.
