    2 Things:

    The stands on the director scene (the guy getting kicked by the glass), you can notice them, then you can't really figure out the ones with the clown-over-cop from above that. At least I couldn't figure how they hold up like that now that I know how it was done basically

    And how the scene is not really making any sense with the police/robbers emplacement. I know I'm a bit picky, but still.. :p

    It's great, but could have been a little better. But the way it loops back is well thought out.

    so, instead of using the "zoom" or "wide zoom" button on most 16:9 tv's, they want you to buy a whole new set?

    ok.

    zoom buttons cut information out of your frame, and make the image you're watching upscaled for your hdtv, get upscaled again for bad aspect ratio.

    to be honest, normal tv used to be 4:3, nowadays its 16:9 and now they act like the future is 21:9, none of which are standard cinema aspects, therefore i dont get the point, as films on disk will always be a different ratio.

    I've always and will always prefer watching something with letterboxing than with pillarboxing, so i cant see how this is going to surpass 'ooh thats pretty' and move towards revolutionary
