Default So, how large of a tv do you need?

This is sort of a reply to some of the posts by Niri Te and apache blanca in the who's eywa thread....

For reference purposes, I will quote them here.

I am on a wrong planet, Get me back to Pandora!"

I would watch Avatar 2 in a movie theater in any case, in IMAX if I can - but free choice is everybody's right.

We quite possibly would NOT have seen it YET, had we not walked into our friend's place just as the cable TV version of it started on his giant flat screen TV


1. I have a 30" and a 26" tv.
2. Having just recently seen Avatar in a theater again, it confirms that what apache said still holds true for me as well.


As I have probably mentioned before, I never used to think of a 30" or 32" tv as "small" until I saw Avatar on blu-ray.

So, I would like to ask, how large of a tv do you need to have to get that kind of experience? I don't think I could fit (and certainly can't afford) a 70" tv, so I'm hoping it's not that.

Because Avatar Is a Experence Film, seeing it in a Cinema is allways going to
be a much deeper experence because the Cinema enviroment by its nature is leads to a much imersive group Film experence. With Avatar its more then just the Large Screen, 3D and Cinema suround sound.
Its the collective Group Audience all focused and sharing the film experence. Even if one had a 70" Tv or better yet Digital 4k projection you can"t easly duplicate that aspect of The Cinema expernece.

After Avatar we got together formed the Community Cinema group,we put our heads together and Built a collective home theater in the basement of one of our members homes that voluntered the space most of our group have simple small Tvs at home and movie libarys on DVD and Bluray, those titles are shared as much as posable as well, Our Projector uses polarized 3D like the Cinema and we can reuse Cinema 3D Glasses that are normaly recycled
"3D makes a huge diffrence". And good 3D films are much more imersive
They did an Audience Emotion test on Avatar and the 3D version had almost 4 times the impact of the 2D version. Because 3D Glasses reduce the light that gets to your eyes its critical one have a display or projecter that is bright enougth to compensate for this. I have seen my share of Commerical theaters that have real issses here as well this makes 3D hard to watch and gives it a Bad Name.

Tv Size: is respective to size of the room and the viewers distance from the display, Direct displays will usuly win out in image quality and costs over a projecter until the screen gets bigger then 65" I can"t wait till costs come down and OLED and 4K technoligy become affordable but that will take some time. LCD displays image quality and contrast Have become much better but many still have issues with Motion flow and displaying true black Sony and others have a 4K projection on the market and the image quality is "simply astounding" you can stand 5 feet away from a 150" screen and read the newspaper a charter is holding "Avatar 2 is a true 4K Native film
as apposed to the orignal"

Why Avatar "feels the way it does" is another issue that touches on very deep human understanding, thats not on topic for this thread.

Ateyo watch all of our Movies on a True Flat LCD while we lay in bed together, leaning on those triangular large pillows made for such an endeavor. The TV screen is 5 feet from the foot of our bed. We currently have a 22 inch Hi-Def computer monitor, that will be moved to our Sony Vaio next month, and replaced with a 42 inch Hi-Def LCD.
That is the largest TV that will fit into the spot that I custom built into the wall when Ateyo and I built this house. The killer kick ass theater sound system will remain the same, the sub woofers will knock your socks off during fire fights.

Our TV screen is an old CRT that surely would not do the movie justice. But I got a used video projector for 100 bucks and we occasionally use it to watch movies that deserve a bigger screen. Then of course the screen size is about 6' or so
