I couldn't disagree more. Something is definitely wrong here. Yes, the image appears more like high-def with less dirt on the print now, but the black levels are horrible. What some of you are describing is night and day different from what others of us are seeing. My disc looks like I have paused the movie for a few minutes and the first level of screen saver has kicked in and darkened down the whole picture. It should have been called flight of the bumblebee because black and yellow are the predominant colors. At the end of the movie, there is just a long awkward moment where Hawkeye's father is staring at him because you can't really see that he put his hand on his father's shoulder to console him. The night scenes, particularly the conversation at the burial ground are so dark you can't even see who is talking. There is no emotion from the actors because you can't see their faces at all. They could be wearing the joker makeup from Batman and you wouldn't know it. It's really bad. In the opening scene you can barely make out what kind of animal they are hunting. I saw this movie in the theater and this blu ray is nothing like what I saw. Anyone with dark hair just looks like someone painted in their hair with a computer tool because it is all just a brown blob. It reminds me of when the tv station has a problem with the picture and you can hear the movie fine but can't really tell what is happening on screen. DVD is much more watchable even though the resolution is lower.
P. S. When you pause the movie you can see all the detail that should be visible in the small window at the bottom. But, you can't see have far you are into the movie because the progress bar is too dark and there is limited color change visible.
