I would be quite curious if anyone noticed extra noise, or whatever in dark scenes. I am fairly picky, and their was not much grain normally but when the night scenes kicked in their was quite a bit of what looked like some noise on my projector everytime a dark scene kicked in... maybe it was just grain being more noticeable in the dark scenes somehow.
I often noticed in a few areas out in the woods, these black areas also appeared a bit washed out in areas where the mosquito noise flared up....the scene in that cave for one.
I see a few reviews mentioning washed out blacks in a couple scenes, while another mentions the extreme noise in the odd scene i was seeing as well, im just wondering if more people noticed it. It was only a couple of scenes. This review mentioned what i was seeing.
"The final irritation would be the the occaisonal close up that was literally swarming with digital noise. we'd switch from a scene that's as crisp and clear as can be to an extreme close up of Katniss that would be dancing with noise. Don't get me wrong, this issues are mostly an irritant to my OCD nature rather than a large visual distraction from an otherwise pristine picture. Overall I'd say Lionsgate did an extremely faithful job of bringing this to the home market. "
Another review mentions these washed out black areas
" Critical black levels are lacking needed density as night falls, keeping shadow detail firmly intact while washing out the screen."
Not to harp on it but these couple scenes really stood out for otherwise being a nice transfer.
Here is a simple screen capture i took
