I'm actually watching it for a second time and I think it looks amazing.
I've watched The Lego Movie and Mad Max in DV on VUDU.
Here in my light controlled viewing environment Marco Polo looks better than both The Lego Movie and Mad Max.
Marco Polo really looks to my eyes like A LOT of thought was put into shooting this series to take advantage of Dolby Vision. The way the scenes are lit is (imho) a fantastic use of DV and really shows off what it can do.
Just my 2 cents.
, this is interesting. Off the top of your head, can you think of any particular scenes/moments that might show it off?
I see a few possibilities here, and I'm trying to figure out which is true.
1) I don't know what to look for/I'm expecting too much. Without a doubt, MP looks *good* to me, but so does all the well-shot 4K content I've seen on my P50. I was expecting astonishingly vibrant colors or highlights, but I didn't see anything that wowed me any more than SDR 4K content.
2) The P50 doesn't have a very wide color gamut. Someone upthread suggested this, after seconding my response about MP. I hope this isn't the case! I can't go bigger than 55 inches, and I'd rather have the VA panel than the IPS.
3) MP isn't a particularly good showcase for DV. This is what a few people have suggested, and I'm hoping it's true, but you seem to feel the opposite. I guess I can verify this by taking my credit card out and renting a Vudu movie.
Anyway, in the case of #1
, perhaps there is something I'm not seeing or not looking for in Marco Polo. Any tips for what to look out for?
This takes me back to the 90s, when everyone was going nuts over those Magic Eye posters, and I could never make it work for me.
