I'm gonna have to side with Ernest. Part of what makes film have the effect it does on the viewer is its texture. I'm not talking about excessive grain here, but the natural look that film gives off that lends it an almost satiny feel that video (even Lucas' beloved 24p) just doesn't have. Give me film any day. As for why Episode II looked better in DLP than on film? Because it was originally shot on digital video which has a much lower resolution than 35mm film. Given that most release prints aren't pristine and that projection in most Googleplexes is handled by teenagers with no knowledge of the correct parameters for film projection, it's no surprise that Ep. II looked like a Bob Guccione layout from 1978 when viewed on film. I saw it both ways and also much preferred the DLP projection. That being said, I have also seen DLP screenings of filmed movies that look just terrible. Digital projection simply has yet to reach the quality of a well-projected film. I'm not saying that it won't. With the advances in projection technology it's only a matter of time before video projection catches up, but that is a day that is a ways off. Until then, God bless celluloid!
