Oliver, I would agree that Joe was not applauding Spartacus. Nobody was. And he wasn't applauding The Sting, which I evaluated on his system and found significant problems thereon.
I'm going to dispute the account of the Jurassic Park and BTTF trilogies on Blu. Some people had issues with those releases, while others did not. And those were absolutely not in the area of the above two titles. I don't know about Fried Green Tomatoes as I did not receive that for review and have not seen it on Blu. (I have the DVD release from over 10 years ago, I believe.)
Joe's screen is a JKP and it's a beauty. He showed us in graphic terms the difference between his custom design and the standard projection screen - his is much smoother and doesn't have all the rough texture that can wind up actually obscuring the picture. His screen presents a uniformity of color and brightness over the surface, so you don't have hot spots in one place or another and you don't get the "dirty screen door" effect with a really knobbly surface. By the way, he also has a custom setting on his projector that is specific to black and white films, which is something along the lines of a "carbon arc mode" - providing a warmer palette for black and white. It's a pleasure and a privilege to be able to see these titles in such a well-designed setup.
