Also, try to sit back and enjoy the movie and leave the microscope in the lab.
If there is a real obvious flaw, it will pop out without you LOOKING for it.
You're basically trying to make people feel guilty for having viewing arrangements that allow them to see more detail than you. You people (the apologists) think we look for the flaws and are happy that we found them- but in reality, we look for beauty and are upset that it was scrubbed away and sharpened.
A movie can be soft and still be forgivable, if that was just the technical limitation of the equipment or the artistic direction of the film-maker. But when the lacking detail is not a natural limitation or artistic decision, but rather the result of poor digital filtering, then people with proper viewing distances are inevitably going to disapprove because the smudging, the ringing, and the bloating of pixels is obvious when you're sitting at a proper 1080p viewing distance. As I said, people sit this close/buy these large screens so they can see the BEAUTY of a fine Blu-ray
Get off this kick about people wanting to overanalyze things.
