It's extremely crisp. I was afraid it would look like crap on the small screen, as do the commercials on tv. But on Blu Ray it's very nice. And this is coming from a guy who watched Avatar in 3D in IMAX.
picked this up. the blu ray/dvd combo. i compared the 2 on my pc since it has a dvd rom and a sony blu ray rom. there is a noticable differece but not by a a huge margin. the dvd version seemed a bit lighter and fuzzier but man the blu ray version was so hi def it wasn't funny.
I watched the blu ray on my "46 sony bravia via hdmi and i'll have to say that film the looked better than when i saw it on imax. it's the best looking blu ray film i've ever seen. i don't think films can get more high def or more "blu ray" looking than avatar. my tv's @ 60hrtz though. my friends "46 bravia runs @ 120 hrtz so i wanna see what it looks like on his tv. must look spectacular.
it's probably one of the reasons why it's the best selling blu ray of all time, dethroning , the dark knight. it sold in a week what did what dark knight did in a year, if i remember correctly.
avatar's the type of blu ray that can be turned on and left on merely for the crisp beauty of it. i have the nice 5.1 surr. snd set up that enhanced it all as well.
9/10 on thae blu ray only because they should've included 3d. I'll be getting that version as well.
