Before I continue any further with this article, let it be known that I am in no way an AV expert, nor have I ever claimed to be one. I DO NOT KNOW THE PROPER TERMINOLOGY FOR ANY OF THIS HD/LCD/FPS/OPP NONSENSE. I do, however, know when something looks like garbage. This article is a reflection of an opinion gathered by my own personal experiences.
Ever since films fell in love with the quick and cheap process of using CGI effects, the incredible art form of practical effects in films have taken a back seat. Blood and guts have gone digital, and movie monsters look faker than your sister's prom date. People have become so absorbed with their new fangled hi-def flat screens, that we're globbering up enhanced films quicker than they're coming out. That's not to say that I'm not for the progression of film quality, because I'm completely for it. However, comma, enhancements aren't always for the best. Have you ever looked at your skin under one of those 15x mirrors? Suddenly you're spending hours prodding pores, plucking hairs, and applying more makeup. HD and higher FPS formatting do somewhat of a similar thing when it comes to film. It takes something that already looks pretty good, and enhances absolutely EVERYTHING. I mean EVERYTHING. It's nearly impossible to hide imperfections in these formats because we ourselves cannot see these imperfections with our naked eye. It's only after things are enhanced that we think "Christ, do I really look like that?" For practical effects, this is a death sentence.
