Let's talk about The Fifth Element and the (canceled-before-mass-release) Robocop BDs then. You know, the ones that were "Beyond High Definition" and ended up looking worse than their 480p counterparts.

And for the record, DD+ is HD audio. It's just not as great as it could be.

I wasn't trying to pick on BD, but saying that HD DVD is solely responsible for the masses not understanding HD is ****ing ridiculous. BD is just as responsible if not more so due to the aforementioned spec issues.
