Let's not get negative with each other guys, because nobody is likely to change their minds on this movie.
For my part, those screenshots still look a bit darker than my bluray. No, my copy doesn't look like Avatar. It's a dark movie, there's no disputing that. We've all seen the dvd, and know how bad it was. The bluray I have enables me to see all the details I couldn't on the dvd. Honestly, I can see just about everything. It's not what I'd call super bright, but I can now actually watch the movie, and that's good enough for me.
