I am very very surprised some people complained about the PQ of this title. It obviously must be their display. This release has taken HD to a new high level.

I'm curious, either you are both very easy to please, are not seeing what many others are seeing, or are trying to give a glowing review where one isn't warranted. From what I've read by most others this transfer is good (receiving a 4 out of 5 from both DVDTalk and High-Def Digest), but definitely nowhere near the likes of King Kong or Hulk on HD DVD, both which received a perfect 5 out of 5 for PQ.
DVDTalk's review of the disc noted that "X-Men: The Last Stand certainly has that high-definition look to the film, but feels a bit out of place in some areas. The first possible problem might be that Fox decided to use a BD-25 disc instead of the early rumored BD-50 (films like Click get a BD-50, but not this one)? The video quality doesn't suffer completely though as many sequences looked fine. The use of detail was NEARLY perfect as the facial features on many of the characters (especially Wolverine's beard) sparked to life. The only poor use of detail was the sequence when Magneto moved the Golden Gate Bridge (many of the smaller details were hard to make out)." High-Def Digest liked the picture quality as well, but did note that there was "posterization throughout the film. Nothing severe, but gradual transitions of color sometimes looked blocky and artificial."
Do you both truly believe that the PQ of X-Men 3 is the best that Blu-Ray has to offer?
