I was Best buy the other night. And they had POTC Dead Man's Chest playing on a Sony 1080p LCD using Blu-Ray. And from what I heard this Blu-Ray is one of the best out there. Now here's the question: Is it too good? And what I mean by that is I only seen a few Blu-Ray set ups before in stores, with various movies playing. But I never really stayed to watch more than a minute. This time I was watching POTC for at least 25 minutes. And was simply amazed by the detail & clearity. But a part of me, was thinking , was it too clear. I seen the POTC in the theaters & it never looked like this. IMO it lost its film look , if you know what I mean. It was so clear, that it was (this is hard to explain) like it was a reality show or news program. It felt like I could touch the actors. It felt like they were on stage sets. Take the part when the guys were in those ball jail things climbing up the moutain scene. It didn't look natural. It looked like the men were on a fake moutain & the backgrounds were fake. It looked very staged. Versus the theater , when everything on screen had a fluent look to it. There was too much seperation with the actors & the backgrounds in the Blu-ray version. Its very hard too explain, I understand. But does anybody know what I'm talking about. I know I'm not used to Blu-Ray, but it was seemed distracting to watch the film that way. The movie didn't seem like a movie anymore, it was felt like a expirement. Don't get me wrong, it was crazy detailed and clear. It was quite amazing. But in IMO it took all the charm out of film. Are there other movies like this? Like I said before I heard this was a benchmark DVD. Does anybody feel this was towards Blu-Ray? Is HD better for watching sports , concerts, etc... places where you want to be there live, & feel like your standing next to the people. I'm all for movies to be shown in the clearest way possible. Like the difference from having a bad vhs copy vs. a clean dvd version of a film with no grain. But HD is a whole other thing imo if they all look like this. Well the newer movies anyway.
