Everybody says planet earth is like the best available on bluray. For real? It looks like fucking shit.

It's fucking grainy even. Lots of it. And this is the real disc, not some copy.

Fact is the 720p mkv rips I've downloaded of Frozen Planet looks much better.

What the fuck is up with bluray, is it the mpeg2 shit or whatever that makes it look so bad?

Yes.. I agree. I think at the time when it first came out and there were limited blu-rays it looked good in comparison to everything else. But I agree, it's def. not a stellar looking Blu-Ray

Picky, picky. Not even sure Planet Earth is considered reference material.

Kung Fu Panda is reference source material in picture and sound.

Try that, and when you think bluray is still shitty, just realize that you don't have your TV properly calibrated, nor a surround system that can actually handle the full audio.

Yeah, I also expected it to be 50/60fps, like most nature programs on tv but it's super jerky 24/25fps bullshit, making it look horrible. Only way to save it somewhat is to use motion interpolation so it looks smoother.Also, it's on 5 fucking discs? I thought one of reason for bluray was less fucking discs. 25gb x 5 is 125gb. Yet it still looks like shit and uses shitty framerate.Bluray is way worse than I ever imagined.

Source material for most Bluray's is at 24fps, hence why you should have purchased a Plasma that can do native 24fps.

The point is to get as close to source as possible, and I'm sure your set up is no where near that.

Why can't my pilips 1080p lcd do 24p? I think it does and my bluray shit player is currently set to output at that.I tried 1080i, 720p and many other resolutions too but planet earth looked like shit at all resolutions.

Because it's an LCD. LCD panels can not do 24hrz native(Hence all the 160hrz and 240hrz LCD sets). You need a Plasma for that.

Even so it wouldn't matter much. 24fps is jerky crap. I want 50/60fps on everything. I can't even watch movies without motion interpolation anymore, it looks so much better with it. Avatar for example looks fucking incredible in "60fps".

What are you talking about? It's not like 24p or not would somehow make it look much better. It would still be the same jerky, blurry shit that is 24fps.

You also seem to be wrong about your plasma claim.

This is what it says for my tv:
Question

Does my TV support native 24p playback from a connected Bluray player?
Answer

Yes. Your Bluray player needs to be connected by HDMI and your TV Smart picture setting need to be set to [Cinema].


So who is wrong, you or philips?

I always watch movies in "cinema" mode too. 24p is just a hyped bullshit mode.

Fact is planet earth and bluray in general looks like shit.

Planet Earth is not a great looking anything. It was really the first higher quality big budget nature documentary and it has lots of pretty things which is why i think the bluray got/gets a lot of praise. But purley from video quality perspective it's pretty mediocre at best.

Frozen Planet is what, 5 years newer at this point? I'm sure it does look better video wise.

Planet Earth was also filmed at 25fps. So 24p mode or whatever doesn't apply. your PAL disks should be 25fps...
