Here is the article from hometheatermagazine that I picked up regarding The Golden Compass of which they named the "Best Picture Quality-Live Action" :
"We're taking on the DNR police and online conspiracy theorists with this pick. The Golden Compass offers the most convincing and filmlike sense of depth and front-to-back dimensionality we've seen. On a large screen, it feels like you could walk right into Lyra's world in the north. Fine textural details are abundant, and the imaginative and expansive CG effects create this world with astonishing, look-through-the-window clarity. The picture quality is nothing short of pure immersion and a reference for the format.
All I can say is watch Prince Caspian and see what "Fine textural details" really looks like.
