Now I want mint chocolate chip ice cream.
No, that's the featurette from years ago and he was talking about the original theatrical presentation - it has nothing whatsoever to do with the BD.http://forum.blu-ray.com/blu-ray-mov...ml#post4848629
The increase in detail is trememdous. Imagine if they had actually gone the other way and made it worse.... (a la Predator.) It looks fantastic compared to the original release. A few of the shots do look slightly troubling color timing wise but the original is hardly a source to use a benchmark. Take this for example: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...3#post20548183 McKellen is a fairly pasty, pallid looking dude in real life. In the original BD...
Superior? Relative to what? I wouldn't really call Criterion's BD quality in general anything close to superior. Average might be being too kind.

If he's talking about night mode it makes sense I guess... never use it personally.
I've noticed the opposite, it sounds to me like the mixes have become less bassy if anything...
I'm ready to get Pincho'd. I've prepared myself this time.
That doesn't bother me too much. But they did get my vote due to horrendous customer service (nothing better than rude responses, being put on hold waiting for a manager, and then being mysteriously "disconnected" while on hold over and over again,) poor pricing models, removal and downgrade of DVR/cable features (no more broadcast resolution passthrough for me, great!,) lackluster HD channel lineup and tortoise-paced adding of new ones, among several other things. I like...
