What effect do you think HD on DVD will have on special effects. I'm watching Spiderman 2 on HBO HD which is a very good HD broadcast of the movie. The stunning special effects in the movie theater, and even on DVD are of good quality. But in HD...its so easy to tell and they lose all of their effectiveness. Its almost like they look like cardboard cutouts. Even some very good DVD transfers still are 'bad' enough to hide all the little stuff but not a good HD transfer. How much better will the technology get to fool people in HD?
