Ok, has anyone seen Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol (Two-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo + Digital Copy) on blu??

It looks fantastic. Just incredible. I think we have a new standard in which all blus must be judged.

I thought it would be interesting to note all the landmark blus throughout time that have been considered benchmarks of greatness.

I will start with:
The Dark Knight (+ BD Live) [Blu-ray]

I will go with the first million copy seller (I believe... correct me if I am wrong)

Casino Royale [Blu-ray]

I found article that puts Casino Royale as the first 100,000 copy HD seller. That was at the two week point of its release. Where it went from there, I have not found yet.

Nice! Yeah, I thought that looked better on my TV then it did in the theatre. I saw it in a really bad theatre though...

I have a similar story for Peter Jackson's King Kong. The theater I saw it at was actually blurry on the lower part of the screen, so the BD was much better.

Alien Anthology [Blu-ray] Mainly for the special features and how they're integrated into the movies.

Star Trek (2009) The film looks amazing on Blu-Ray, colors vibrant and the True HD 5.1 mix sounds amazing.

3D - Avatar 3D Blu-Ray. I still have not found a 3D movie that looks better. No ghosting, crystal clear images that really pop out of the screen.

I would have said Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol was the Blu-Ray to own this year, but the IMAX scenes were cropped for this release. The cropping is so bad that at times it takes away from some of the best scenes of the film. To me, this is on the same level as doing a pan-and-scan job on a widescreen film.

What about Hugo (Three-disc Combo: Blu-ray 3D / Blu-ray / DVD / Digital Copy) as a landmark in blu 3D?

I agree, Hugo 3D Blu Ray is a must own for anyone with a 3D TV. The other one being Avatar 3D. I hate to say it because the movie was not very good, but the other one to own with a great 3D pop-out effect is Monsters vs. Aliens.

You have to judge catalogue releases on their own individual merits as some look awesome.

New releases however when done correctly are reference quality,and ghost protocol is just jaw dropping in terms of both picture and sound.

Ever since I watched 8 mm and now ghost protocol I am a huge fan of the Dolby tru hd 7.1 lossless audio tracks.
