3D is an animal all it's own, and there are many variables. I'm not policing the thread I'm simply pointing out there is a better way to address this than telling us members that it's yet "another instance of Ralph dropping the ball" How would you like to be flamed for an issue that never happened to you?
Here's an example;
Ralph did you notice xxx at 15:40 into the movie? I disagree about the 3D I thought it was below average, could you look into it again? I'm pretty sure it's not his "job" to do these reviews, rather he enjoys it and does it for us. But if people keep blasting him for issues out his control I wouldn't blame him if he stopped doing reviews.
Nothing against you I just thought I'd pass along some information that could prove valuable. Let's move on
The point is the issue will have been present and he didn't notice it. He claimed that he updates his reviews in such instances but when provided with an example where he didn't update his review or even bother checking his response is "you need to get over it". I provided another instance of him missing a notable issue which he never even bothered to check on and thus the review is still misleading anyone who reads it.
Dude, let it go. Move on with your day. Are you really going to brow beat this man for not talking about an issue that you personally think he should bring up as an issue? Really? IT IS A MOVIE!!!! Most people talk about plot, character development, artistic quality, and story. Just because you might or might not have eye issues, do not abuse this man who is providing a service to the people. Move on my friend. Move on.
Once again it is not my eyes, it is an issue with the transfer. I have provided examples so one can easily see the issue. If you are happy ignoring issues that is up to you. I never pointed out anything regarding his review of the film and it is very hard to be right or wrong when reviewing a film (for example not watching it would make your review of the film worthless). But he also is reviewing the video and audio whereby technical issues are a matter of wrong and right. So are his videos and audio section of his reviews just wasted filler or do they serve a purpose? As if the only thing worth talking about is "plot, character development, artistic quality, and story" then why would he have written a review for the video quality or audio quality? It is to inform readers of the positives and negatives and this review does not mention a rather big negative.
You can either post about it like an adult accustomed to civil discourse, or like an abrasive a-hole. The former tends to get better results than the latter.
If you'd read all the posts in this thread alone, you might realize that the issue is not something everyone is sensitive to, which is why it is easily missed by many, including most reviewers.
I personally didn't notice it till it was brought up and I went back and checked those scenes frame-by-frame. Unlike the people sensitive to the issue, my eyes/brain apparently automatically compensate for the vertical disparity and it seems the same goes for the majority.
You might have gotten better results by asking in a more civil manner, but when you attack people, they tend to be less interested in catering to you.
Now as far as the issue goes, I DO believe it's very possible that it occurs in ALL copies and is unnoticed by most, but a severe distraction to those sensitive to it.
Ralph, I understand your reasons given for not editing your review to mention the issue. I also understand the lack of motivation/desire to take the time to scrutinize the affected section frame-by-frame to confirm/deny that your copy exhibits the issue given the manner (or should I say lack of manners) with which the issue has been raised. I ask you to reconsider though.
Although it is an issue that may not be noticed by many, I can understand how it could be severely distracting and even headache inducing to those sensitive to it. I think that issues with a transfer should be brought to light to allow the consumers to make informed decisions. If I happened to be sensitive to it, I would most certainly like to know about a release with this issue prior to purchase. I also feel that the only way to get the studios to consistently deliver the top notch product we would all appreciate (and potentially correct issues for later releases), is to air any issues with a release. As I said, given the option, I always prefer to be an informed consumer so I can make my choices with my hard earned cash.
As always, I appreciate the time and effort you put into these reviews AND to read and reply to the posts they generate.
