[QUOTE=zevia;2004176]I would blame Paramount or direct to the group of people who “convert” the film to Blu-ray, and not generalize it (although you didn’t).
Note that Sahara Blu-ray is only in 25GB BD-ROM disc. If Paramount want to make better picture quality, they can do so and release in Dual layer 50GB disc. Not to mention the audio, there is no lossless PCM or DTS-HD or DTS-HD MA on the movie.[/QUOTE]
Don’t assume that a 50GB disc is a requirement for top-quality image. BD’s biggest problem thus far has been the reliance on MPEG-2, which does require massive file sizes for high quality. With MPEG-4 and SKILLFUL encoding, dual-layer discs are not a requirement unless they want to include many hours of extras.
