I've heard rave reviews of the 3d version, but is the 2d version also clean and high quality?
I saw it in IMAX at my local theater and also have it on Bluray 3D. Overall, my experience at the theater was better. BUT, that being said, the reason was because of my lack of good sound system. The 3D quality and overall picture was PHENOMENALLY better.
As with all 3D on the 9500, the massive backlight power allowed (combined with those nice 3D glasses I got) gave the movie a major boost in the display of colors. I actually left the IMAX theater with a slight disappointment in the film. I went into it not knowing any
of the backstory (showing my age lol), and what I was to be expecting. There was a lackluster display of colors imo with very little contrast, kinda like I was watching a beige movie the entire time. On the 9500 though, everything changed. Colors were vibrant, but still muted as they were filmed to be (depth of color I guess?). The smoke flare fireworks for instance had such a greater effect. 3D overall is just better.
Even with it though, my lackluster sound bar could not come near enough in performance to make the IMAX viewing secondary to my at home experience. The gap in quality was so much I guess to make the envelopment into the movie less effective. I can't wait for some good speakers in the future, at which point I know movie viewing will not be warranted in pretty much any circumstance!
