Going beyond that DVD and blu-ray do have a "digital" feel that IS a limitation. If your cinema screen looked like that you'd ask for a refund. Perhaps you've been watching on a television with bad blur/judder reduction settings? This can make film look like video. As with LK's complaint, what you're referring to is almost certainly a display problem, not a source problem. My experience with Blu Ray has been seeing store displays and I wasn't convinced. I think it's for people who will spend money on digital Monster cables. In-store displays are adjusted to maximum brightness and color saturation to attract the attention of the average consumer walking through a brightly lighted store. They look absolutely awful. Nothing to do with the source material, or the capabilities of the display for that matter, when properly adjusted. The difference between DVD and Blu-Ray is a huge, objective increase in picture resolution, easily noticeable on any large, modern television. It's not at all comparable to the audiophile idiots who claim to hear differences that aren't measurable with equipment far more sensitive than the human ear.
