I watched the same movie from Las Vegas IMAX 3D theatre some yrs back. It was pretty good, so I ordered this to watch on my Samsung Plasma (with TriDef glasses). Big disappointment.

One thing I missed before I ordered, this dvd is NOT WIDE SCREEN! That's just dumb.

Also, the overall DVD is quite dark, which really shows how my Samsung Plasma is not producing a black level dark.

After fiddling through many settings and viewing distance, I can only reproduce the experience when I sit a few feet away from my TV...

So in conclusion, get this ONLY IF you still use tube tv (with appropriate gears)!

I just borrowed this book from my local library and read it. The points made by this book are either well-known, or super outdated. I guess it was new at the time, but time has changed. It is not useful anymore to point out the design flaws of Windows 95 vs Mac. This book is too old for today's applications. Please only get this book from library and read for fun.
