That's a movie made for the Blu-Ray format. Do you have a receiver that can do Dolby Plus?
One thing that bothers me about Bluray (and DVD's too I suppose) is that I have a 32" LCD, and I still have to deal with black bars. Is 16:9 not wide enough for directors or is it a ploy to get people to still go to theaters? I'm sure on 60" inch screens those black bars don't matter, but on a 32-40" TV which is what the normal household has, 2:39:1 Blurays don't look all that much better than DVD's since you have such a small picture anyway. I understand and am all for getting the directors intent but how far left and right do we really need to see?
