I think they are using 2D digital projector and digital sound system. Or was it using digital source instead of old school projector reel? Either one or both.

The image is supposed to be clearer and the sound much better. Or so I was told by my friend. Just what I heard.

2D is much clearer-you wont see those dots and tearing and god knows what else 35mm tends to have on screen.

sound is not only clearer, but rarely will you hear drops in audio for no reason-common with 35mm...or atleast i usually suffer that,anyway doh.gif

I can tell the difference. And I think it's worth it, much more than 3D.

well, yea, 2D is like watching in HD whereas normal sometimes you can feel that the screen is "blurish"

it's just an extra dollar though, so...it's your choice...and of course, timing too is a factor

i can tell u for sure that 2D means digital (HD) version. the picture's definitely sharper and clearer with better contrast and vibrant colours. back in the UK, it will state "digital" rather than 2D like in msia. kinda confusing when we all know 2D means anything that's not 3D wink.gif.

to see the real difference between standard projector and a digital one, just look at the edges of the screen. digital projections produce sharp and accurate edges with 90degree angle at the corners. standard projectors have blurry edges, sometimes not even straight, and have rounded corners.

Yes normally they have 2 versions for it. Like Sucker Punch. They have 2D and the normal one.

I haven't seen a digital 2D movie yet, but I've heard good things and apparently you definitely CAN tell the difference.

Funny how there's a bunch of people here who don't even know what it means or have used it, but are advising people against it.

Seriously, if you guys can't tell the difference between HD and non-HD, there's something wrong with you. I can notice the vast quality difference on my tv, what makes you think you won't notice it on a much larger (cinema) screen?

EDIT : I believe the price diff is RM1-2 bucks, so its worth it if you can find a cinema that has digital 2D. I've only heard Mid Valley having it so far.

MBO Kepong also got, I'm sure most cinemas will have it. And the price diff is more like RM2-3, which is still cheaper than 3D.

i believe most of the major cinema have it like 1u, MV , TS etc

dont talk bout the cinema with 4-5 halls...

i only watch in GSC, the price only differ by rm1 only

if u mentioned MBO different with rm2-3 ? i doubt they will be many ppl gonna watch it

as 3D ticket normally cost around rm14-15

normal ticket cost rm10-11

Its been cleared to me, 2D is like HD version....

so i guess 2D uses digital projection technology, possibly 2k or 4k ... while normal is using analog 35mm prints to project...

haven't teste 2d yet but i hope it won't feel too 'clean' ... there's some magic from 35mm celluloid prints sometime with all the grain and scratches smile.gif

i watched Battle LA in 2D bcox the ticket seller ask me to buy 2D since the price is same as normal.

The picture is really damn clear... no scratches. but sometimes when it get bright color, is really bright until i have to close my eyes a while.

^you can def tell the difference. No black lines / dots, etc. Give it a shot, its usually only RM1 more than the regular ticket price.
