    same here...

    I bought the Blu-ray from Amazon last month when it was only $17.99.
    (with free Prime 2-day shipping)

    This is one of those Blu-ray movies that everyone should own. :)

    Been about 2 months since I've gone BR and I still don't own one. Maybe I should make this my first. :D

    The Dark Knight is a reference-quality disc for both video and audio, with a number of scenes shot on IMAX with stunning quality. On a good setup, it is amazing, and definitely worth the <$20 I spent!

    We have it on Blu-ray too,but it is good to see some 1080p material showing up in regards to the On Demand channels. :)

    I might give it a shot... haven't seen it yet (why the heck not!?!?!) and don't have BD. I do have a nice 1080p set though. I'll report back, but I'm getting old and my eyesight is as well. It may be a "wow, looks great!".

    i thought the back n forth between imax shots & the rest of the movie was slightly annoying.

    Once the movie started, I didn't even really notice the switched aspect ratio



    PS. Yes, I have it on BD too.

    does the tv have to be 24fps compatiable to receive the 1080P movies on Directv?

    From what I understand after reading through past threads on the issue of receiving 1080P/24 Hz programming through DOD, no. However, during the 1080P resolution set-up if the HD DVR detects that your HD set cannot handle such a signal natively it will automatically convert it to a common 1080i/60 Hz signal by interlacing and adding in 3:2 pull-down to pad it up to 60 fields per second.
