Digital Star Wars

I’ve been doing some qualatitive analysis this week. Here are the results of my self-sacrificing work (honestly, the things I do for you)…

On Tuesday night, I went to see Attack Of The Clones (again) at the local cinema. It was fun and I wanted to see it before the cinema stopped showing it at the end of the week.

On Thursday, I went to see Attack Of The Clones (again) at the Odeon in Leicester Square, London but this time it was digitally projected.

Both screens were small. It was the same movie. But the difference was quite extraordinary.

The detail in the digital version is astounding. What were simply fuzzy blobs in the background became sharp, clear buildings, people and vehicles.

The film was shot digitally so, as you can imagine, it really shines in digital format.

I’m not the only one who recommends seeing Attack Of The Clones this way.

I can imagine that the DVD, being a digital format, will look great. Now all I need is a DVD player.
