Stretching, Zooming, Cropping - ALL alter the image that was on the camera negative.
You are just being selective to prop up your argument
so are you saying presentation is better than the story itself? and are you saying that if the movie you find to be awful has a great presentation then the movie itself is good?
A bad movie is a bad movie. A good movie can become a great movie due to presentation.
people upgraded from HDTV to SDTV to get the best picture available yes but it doesn't change the movie itself, but it does make the experience of watching the movie better.
Which IMO is part of the movie going experience. You can't isolate the story from the presentation.
for the better picture and now it's your turn how does the upgrade change the dialog, who is in the movie or plot?
It doesn't - but that is not enough of a qualifier IMO.
in the case of TDK it's because the plot, dialog, action etc is the same and that's what i been saying all along. the only thing different in TDK in IMAX is higher resolution and a bigger screen. the movie plot, dialog, action etc is the same.
So we can say the same thing about watching a P & S version of a 2.39 movie? Because that is exactly what you are saying when you seperate the presentation from the "meat and potatoes" of a movie.
and since i'm the one eating it and i'm the director s to say it is my preference not to eat it. if they wanted me to eat it they should have made it smell better and look better.
Your opinion and nothing more. Some would call that close minded.
your response to a couple of things sb1 and blood pie has said about TDK is as in it's a different movie you saw in the IMAX theater than the version that was shown at the regular theater the story, dialogue and action etc. but you won't tell us what it is.
See my link above - I am not the only one that has said it.
You have a bad habit - dodging questions and only responding to what you want to. You really should correct that
Oh - you mean like you ignoring my responses because you don't agree with them?
