Re: >sit too far from their screens to benefit from HD
"However... freeze frame on a scene involving a letter or a page of a book, held at arms length. Most of the time, you can't read the text from a DVD but you can do that just fine from a BluRay. Or watch Apocalypto, for example, one of the best early movies for HD."
I generally prefer to watch all movies like this. I just pause them and then advance one frame at a time, that way I don't miss anything.
