    I agree it was really good, some of the 5.1 surround sound was much better than normal too, the forest sounds were everywhere !!

    Nice one sky, more like that please ........

    :clap:

    A movie well suited to H.264 (12mbps) encoding or are SKY finally getting to grips with their encoders?
    I automatically assume any SM10HD movie will have some issues simply becuase it's proven time and time again 4% an hour is far from perfect given SKY's hardware.

    Enjoyed watching this today in all it's HD glory.
    I was expecting a lot more of Gilliam's surrealism, which was fortunatley lacking in this enjoyable romp :thumbsup:

    Maybe he was 'told' to tone it down and not go over budget so a not to risk another 'Munchausen' or 'Don Quixote' ?

    Exactly.
    I hope the encoders have been sorted but more likely the movies content just suited the restrictions placed on them by the lower bitrate provided by SM10HD.
    Same thing happens on SKY1HD, Bones and Standoff look great even at 4% while SG1/Atlantis at times obviously require more bandwidth due to their graphic intensive scenes.
