Re: Dark Knight Blu-ray Review

The shifting aspect ratios are normal. Christopher Nolan filmed several scenes in the IMAX aspect ratio (1.44:1), but not the entire film. For "normal" theaters, he also produced a straight 2:40 print. The IMAX master was used for the Blu-Ray, and Nolan felt that having the IMAX sequences change to "full screen" (1.78:1) would be a good compromise to preserve the increased detail offered by IMAX. This is also the reason for the excessive EE, especially on the non-IMAX stuff. When normal 35mm film is transferred to IMAX, if left alone it will look akin to poor TV reception unless a sharpening technique is used. Unfortunately, that made it's way to Blu-Ray as well, and the odds that we will get a better master is practically nil. Best case scenario would be to use the IMAX footage combined with the untouched 35mm footage (and then, seamless branching would be nice for those with CIH setups).

Several upcoming films, including "Transformers 2", will also use IMAX in this way.

Peace... Vader

Re: Dark Knight Blu-ray Review

As long as they don't destroy the 35mm stuff the way they did with this title I have no problem. They should learn a thing or two from Disney and the Narnia Technicians....

Re: Dark Knight Blu-ray Review

I love it.
But why don't Batman just kill the joker?
If I were Batman I'd just kill the psycho-criminal like Joker.

I like the way that Joker doing things, he is very clever.
He could control gangsters in the way normal man can't do LOL.

Anyway I like the Batman's supercar most.
