The blu-ray is too dark.

And some of us disagree with you. Vincent

I'm kinda surprised to see the return of the 'it's too dark/no it's not' controversy re LOTM. I thought it too dark as well, and it is the only title that causes me to change an adjustment on my TV. I don't remember if the Blu-ray looks the way the film looked when I saw it in the theater; but I doubt there would have been a controversy if Mann were not such an inveterate post-release tweaker.

David - the reason from my perspective for this coming back up is that the same transfer was finally released in the UK on 26th Nov, and I only got to watch it for the first time on Friday night. In the end, the only way I was able to watch it at calibration settings was with the Dynamic Contrast activated. There are many low/natural light BD's out there (Outland, Interview with the Vampire etc), and I've found the best way to view these is via a darkened room - this was the first time I've had to use "gizmos" on the TV to compensate. Interestingly RAH in his original post refers to "well tuned systems" - I'm left wondering if a new ISF-calibrated mid-range TV just 'aint cutting it when it comes to presenting this level of low-light information.

And some will disagree with you. The disc is way too dark on my calibrated Kuro 60 inch monitor. To each their own.

I hope so as this back and forth is not getting us anywhere.

I would like to swap blu-rays with Vincent P and back again just to make sure they all look alike.

Exactly, to each their own. I think it's a gorgeous Blu-ray, and so does Robert Harris and Robert Crawford and others in this thread, while others disagree and think it's too dark. Vincent

To Richard--W: Why single me out? Why not ask to trade discs with others in this thread who think it looks great? Vincent

Maybe some of these discs went out defective.
