Re: Tron: Legacy Blu-Ray Review

The audio and video quality was indeed superb. However I cannot understand why the film companies release these with the cinescope and widescreen (2.35 and 1.78) formats in-bedded (switching to both) in the DVD/Blu-ray releases. I remember the beginning explaining it has something to do with "preserving the iMax experience" but fail to understand beyond that.

The similar way that Dark Knight did it, I did not enjoy that aspect of the film - no pun intended!

I would have written less but I didn't have the time.

As I understand it, IMAX recording is the highest current capturing technology available. The entire movie could not be captured with this and I don't know why.

The film is the best visual and audible experience I have ever experienced on me system. 5 stars. Buy it.

Re: Tron: Legacy Blu-Ray Review

No it wasn't. I won't be reviewing in 3D for a couple of months yet -- it's a pretty expensive upgrade.

Res non sententia.

Re: Tron: Legacy Blu-Ray Review

You couldn't have described the audio better: "Buy it. Now."

This movie is a blast to watch - even on DVD! I can't wait until I finally jump into BluRay and can experience it the way it was meant to be viewed.

Re: Tron: Legacy Blu-Ray Review

My wife just picked up the Bluray today with the little light cycle model. So tonight we will see how the Klipsch Jubilee's and Danley Sound Labs DTS-10 handle the sound track. The OPPO and Samsung handling the video. Should be a nice evening at home.

Re: Tron: Legacy Blu-Ray Review

A DTS-10, awesome! To be nice you could invite the neighbors over to watch - or they could just listen from the comfort of their own home
