Everything about the DVD format was always compromised, the audio and video. I've seen the DVD and it's mediocre even by DVD standards, IMO. Are you an expert at authoring video discs? You're making a very bold statement as if you were. I certainly have no expert knowledge about authoring discs and would refrain from brash statements. My copy is in the mail, I'll make my judgement of the disc set solely by how it looks to me. Drawing lines in the sand is seldom a good strategy unless you're damn sure where to drawn 'em.
Somebody else mentioned the Superbit plan which is just not relevant. Superbit was a fraud as far as I'm concerned. You had to study screeshots to detect the minor improvements. Furthermore, they wasted space on 2 soundtracks instead of giving one higher bit one, brilliant! NOT!
Someday when this or other technology is more mature, Alexander may fit on a single disc comfortably? Till then, if that tomorrow ever happens, I'll gladly switch discs to hopefully ensure the PQ doesn't suffer. During a 3.5 hour movie I know I'll be pausing several times anyway. I tend to stay home for the movies these days precisely because I can pause......and I can consume liquid refreshment to my heart's delight and P in a clean restroom.
All this chatter so reminds me of flipper....and I don't mean the aquatic mammal....
It's like history repeating.
Let's all view the film before we cast judgements. The proof is only in the pudding.
