Cars showed it a few times last night during the intro so that might be a good place to start in a movie.
It is most noticable in a very dark room.
Ok I get the idea, I will keep an eye out for this.. but maybe unless we can't control it I actually don't want to keep an eye out for it!
I have always read when you watch a viewing device that produces the light being viewed (projectors are the exception), that you never want the room to be totally dark, in fact acording the some calibration DVD's they recommend a small amount of light 'behind' the TV (D6500K) to prevent eye strain...
But it is interesting that the manufacturers use all sorts of techniques to get the MAXIMUM contrast level number as large as possible...
