Previously I watches Deathly Hallows and Pirates: Stranger Tides and it was abysmal. not sure if it was the content (Hallows might be the toughest movie ever for irises) or if switching the gamma to CRT helped it not work as hard as Video (would come out of black slower causing the iris not to pump as often or as extremely.

So, I watched Avatar on BD last night (PS3) and, though it was breathtaking, the iris was very noticeable. I watched it with my brother who didn't say anything, didn't ask him if he was noticing it. It was wierd, it would "search" for the correct iris setting. Close way down, then open up a bit, then a little more, etc. all in the same scene.
