I loved it .. [In reply to] Can't Post

In the cinema but as I cannot own my own, I also enjoy it on my 55" television which,btw, is no where near large enough for all the detail in TH and LOTR.

I've got a related question... [In reply to] Can't Post

How do the LotR blu-rays hold up against the AUJ blu-ray? And for those who have noticed the new color grade/tint that PJ and Lesnie gave to Fellowship for it's EE blu-ray, how does that compare to AUJ?

Absolutely. [In reply to] Can't Post

While I stand by my love of the theater experience :), I will agree that the Blu-ray was much better when it came to the camera movements. There were so many times in the theater when I thought the motion was so much blurrier than usual. These shots look much better on Blu-ray.

Good... [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm glad there are others that noticed this. I'm kind of astounded by the difference, and i'm so glad that that's improved.

TTT and ROTK look pretty great to me... [In reply to] Can't Post

The tint in FOTR really bugs me, It makes some scenes look good, but it kind of drenches others and it's a bit overwhelming. Not to mention the fact that I can't think of any good reason it's just over the whole film.

AUJ looks significantly better on Blu-Ray...as far as resolution goes. I will just always prefer the way LOTR was lit, and shot. So yes, it's a given that AUJ has a far sharper picture, but I wouldn't really say thats a great thing in general. It's certainly impressive though

The color grading is very similar... [In reply to] Can't Post

...but because AUJ was in theaters with the same color scheme, it's less likely for anyone to take issue with it. FotR drew so much attention because it looked so different from it's original look.
