Re: Avatar - Blu-Ray Review

Thank you for the kind comments all.

I'm probably going to get hatemail from the first poor individual with dialup or slow DSL who attempts to load all those screencaps.

Res non sententia.

Re: Avatar - Blu-Ray Review

Saw this movie last night with the family on BluRay and although I thought the video quality was fantastic and the animation was top notch (I found myself forgetting that it was animated) the storyline got tiresome halfway through and at times kind of stupid. Personally I dont think that this movie deserved all the hype it got. Great review but Wow, that first page of this tread takes a long time to load

Home theater:
Onkyo 805, Yamaha YDP2006EQ, Samson Servo 600 amp
3 EV Sentry 500 monitors across the front, 4 Mission 762i's Surrounds, SVS PB13U sub, Panasonic BDT220, Harmony 1100, Nintendo WiiU
Panasonic PT-AE8000 on a 120" 2,35:1 fixed screen

Living room system:
Sherwood/Newcastle R972, Mission 765's, SVS SBS02's, A/D/S MS3u sub, Yamaha YDG2030EQ
Yamaha KX-393 Tape deck, CDC 805 CD changer, Panasonic BD60, Sony turntable PS-T20
Panasonic TC-P50ST60, HD-PVR & WDTV Live, Harmony 900

Watched Avatar on Sunday with a couple friends. Everyone was thrilled with the movie. I would have liked to have a 7.1 sound track and maybe a wide screen picture but what was there was very entertaining.

I'm suspicious of this 2d port. Avatar was the greatest 3d experience ever. I just don't know about 2ding it.

Well, I have DSL here, and I thought the screen shots were excessive. My browser did not behave well, constantly jumping back and forth as I tried to just find the next message in this thread. I appreciate that you meant well, but for me, screen shots don't tell me what I want to find out. And, if a picture is worth a thousand words, you gave us Wikipedia.
