to be fair, i've completely ignored what 'imax enhanced is' so my doubt might be unfounded. like others, i just don't see a need for something else. in most cases competition is awesome, and at worst motivates the top dogs to keep working. But when it comes to stuff like this, it just kind of annoys me.
but hey, it's not like i can't watch movies without it, so really, what can i complain about. if i end up with gear that supports it, i'll check it out, but i have no reason to upgrade my gear, and this won't change that.
on a personal note, i really don't believe that 'imax' exists at home. like, if i have a 16:9 tv, and i watch an imax version of a movie, that's not imax imo. it's just a zoomed out 16:9 version. unless your screen is 'too tall', then watching a movie that is presented in imax format will just make the content on screen look smaller. I think this more than anything is what bothers me about this. imax is not just an aspect ratio, or 'framing' technique, and if you don't have the physical screen set up to go with it, i'd argue it's taking away from the immersion, not enhancing it. that's totally a personal opinion though, the choice is yours
