I have not watched too many yet, but " How to train your dragon" was great. It was soo good that even though I was just viewing a small amounts of each movie I was testing, that when I started viewing HTTYD, I wound up watching the whole Movie:D

Darker grainier movies are not as good, as a mater of fact if you do use for that type you will have to lower the level of , or even turn off the Darbee for those.
I works great for animation or well done live action. As was said in many posts. the better the material the more powerful the effect..

I would say my new favorite is the Royal Tannenbaums. When you combine the new BR transfer with the darbee...it makes the DVD look like a bootleg. I was just in awe of how specular this title looked with the BR/darbee combo. My son has discovered Wes' films and we watched the RT dvd a month ago. This weekend we rewatched it on BR with Darbee and our jaws dropped. Can't wait for Moonrise Kingdom ...I expected our darbeevision home theater to out perform our viewing at LA's Angelika. wink.gif

Anyone viewed like planet earth or life? Cause a few images on their site for testing (where its pop at like 100%) appear to be similiar images and I'm curious how it works out for stuff like that in real time

Pull out your HD transfer of that vintage demo disk, "The Fifth Element," and play the sequence that starts with Leelu climbing out on the ledge and dropping into the flying cab, followed by the chase sequence. In addition to increasing perceived detail throughout, if you're watching on a large front projector, I bet you'll feel a queasy physicality to those "straight down" shots that you've never felt before.

Similar spectacular shot looking straight down in Avatar......in The Battle for Pandora chapter.....with the Na'vi mounted on their banshees, clinging to the rocks high on one of the floating mountains, ready to begin battle..... and the squadron of attack ships passes "way the bleep" down below them. eek.gifeek.gif Hard to beat Avatar with the Darblet.

Also unreal with "depth" and spectacular aerial footage and jaw dropping snow boarding scenes with a stunning bluray transfer, is The Art of Flying. The intro sequence that they say was filmed with the Epic 5K....eek.gif Here's list of camera gear:

Take a look at the opening scenes of Hugo, + you can even move the Darbee to higher settings with this transfer!

Avatar is amazing at settings of 60-70 HD mode! Have not tried it with the 3D version yet but the Darblet can really enhance depth with 3D movies. Even more so than with 2D.

Which shows it's only working with what is actually ther in the image itself.

Anything by Stanley Kubrick or David Lean. No CGI here. And the outdoor films are especially good. I've gotta believe that if you have well produced films where the cinematography is strong it's going to be particularly fine to use the Darblet. Even well preserved B&W films look amazingly good (Hitchcock, Bergman, etc.). Just don't push the technology too much. It's simply there to make things clearer - think Windex for your viewing experience wink.gif

I watched the recent HD master of "Sweet Smell of Success" a week ago using the Darblet. Just. Fantastic. It did emphasize some of the grain, but in so doing, reinforced the seedy yet enervating noctural atmosphere of NYC. (Grain can and was used by DPs as a creative device, sometimes to impressive effect.)

I'm currently awaiting arrival, but just want to know how high to set it without causing harm. Do you use a test pattern to determine this or do you just go by the movie itself? This would be pretty cool if I could leave it at one setting and just let people think that my tv is naturally displaying the image.

Warriors of the rainbow. I only had the sd dvd of this but i have never seen pq quality like this with darbee on gaming 46.Cant imagine what the blu ray of this film must look like.

Another is a straight to dvd Jean Claude Van Damme film Six Bullets.Very saturated color effects however with the darbee it makes this 2d sd dvd look like 3d without glasses.Never seen blacks and color look this intense.Really see the added depth the darbee gives to the picture.

What's the movie you're referring to? You never said the title.

It took me about three minutes to realize that you were responding to my post haha. It's probably because you're not quoting the post that you're referring to that I had no idea what your posts were actually, well, in reference to. I almost thought you were referring to a movie titled "Nothing Special." tongue.gif

What a shame Eagles Down Under was never transferred to the winning Bluray format, but I still have my HD DVD player and that is one hell of a fabulous transfer and awesome musical performances on all the tracks by the band. My favorite concert film!

HA....I did actually buy a Bluray of it but found out later it was shipping from China and horrible. My bad. tongue.gif
