Although our last poll (Which Nominee Should Win the Oscar for Best Picture?) didn't garner many votes or comments, it did reveal something important—AVS Forum members don't go out to the movies much. Instead, they tend to wait until movies are released on Blu-ray and watch them in the comfort of their home theater.
So let me rephrase the question: Which nominee(s) for Best Picture do you think will look and sound the best on Blu-ray? I've included the primary production company with each title so you can include that in your deliberation based on anything you've seen from the same company in the past. Also, you can vote for more than one title if it suits you.
Amour (Wega Film)
Argo (Warner Bros.)
Beasts of the Southern Wild (Cinereach)
Django Unchained (Weinstein Company)
Les Misérables (Working Title Films)
Life of Pi (Fox 2000 Pictures)
Lincoln (DreamWorks Pictures)
Silver Linings Playbook (Weinstein Company)
Zero Dark Thirty (Annapurna Pictures)
I look forward to reading your comments on what led to your selection(s).
