Watched it last night.

Yes, the PQ and AQ were great. Story line I though was very interesting and enjoyed it. I will watch it again. Tom Cruise as a person, I am not a fan but I do enjoy his movies.
Hey Jim I was wondering do you watch your movies full screen? I usually do just worried about burn in. I plan on trading in a old movie and get this title from BB.

burn in shouldn't be a problem in modern plasmas. if you watch a movie with bars on it just run the image retention sweep afterwards and/or watch some full screen content later. I've used plasma's for almost a decade and I NEVER have burn in problems from just watching a movie in the correct aspect ratio. only time you should have an issue is watching ONLY 2.35:1 movies or ONLY 4x3 content for HOURS and HOURS and HOURS.

Good to know but I am chicken and will watch mostly full screen. But it will be nice to watch one properly once in a while.

I run full screen on everything only because I like it.

My big fear was burn in or image retention when purchasing my first plasma.

Now that I have had the set for a couple months and my wife loves watching HGTV for hours with an HGTV logo, I have not seen one IR or burn it. I no longer worry or even think about it. It is not a problem.

Sounds good thanks for your input. I like filling the whole screen mostly as well, maybe some day when I have room for a projector it will be different.

I bought it as a semi-blind buy reading hear that the audio/video aspects of this movie are stellar. I can confirm that most definately after watching it yesterday. The story its self is good but its not a big action film for sure. I think you will enjoy it.
