<IMG SRC="/images/archivesart/doomsday.jpg" WIDTH=200 BORDER=0 ALIGN=RIGHT>A deadly plague known as the Reaper Virus attacks Scotland, killing thousands and infecting millions more. To contain the disease, England constructs a wall along the border to keep out infected citizens from the north. Twenty-five years later, the virus reappears, forcing the government to dispatch a military team to search out a Scottish researcher (Malcolm McDowell) who was close to finding a cure during the first outbreak.

<IMG SRC="/images/archivesart/doubt.jpg" WIDTH=200 BORDER=0 ALIGN=RIGHT>Set in 1964 at St. Nicholas Church in the Bronx, Fr. Brendan Flynn (Philip Seymour Hoffman) is accused by principal Sister Aloysius Beauvier (Meryl Streep) of inappropriate conduct with 12-year-old Donald Miller (Joseph Foster), the school's first black student. Is Fr. Flynn's interest deviant or is he just looking out for the well being of a social outcast? John Patrick Shanley's Oscar-nominated scrip deals with truth, emotion, and belief, and asks if any decision is ever free from doubt.

Originating from the other side of the Atlantic, Downton Abbey is one of the most entertaining shows on TV and looks spectacular on Blu-ray. Each episode costs a reported one million pounds to produce and it certainly shows in the marvelous costume design, lavish sets, and all-star cast. Shot with an Arri Alexa digital camera, the level of detail is mesmerizing and the AVC encode is spectacular. Unfortunately the DTS-HD MA 2.0 doesn't have robust dynamics but at least the dialog intelligibility is never an issue.

<IMG SRC="/images/archivesart/dragme.jpg" WIDTH=200 BORDER=0 ALIGN=RIGHT>After a hiatus from horror to make the three <i>Spiderman</i> movies, writer/director Sam Raimi returns to the genre. I'm not a fan of horror films, but given the dearth of review material on my desk right now, I thought I would give <i>Drag Me to Hell</i> a spin. The story is average, but the video and audio were so good, they kept me watching until the end&#151;a rarity with horror films!

Fed up with the harassment, they decide to hire their own private bodyguard, Drillbit Taylor (Owen Wilson), a former soldier of fortune who isn't all he seems to be.

Expectant father Peter Highman (Robert Downey Jr.) is flying home from Atlanta in order to bear witness to the birth of his first child. When he encounters Ethan Tremblay (Zach Galifianakis), a socially retarded wannabe actor at the airport, things get off on the wrong foot when they inadvertently exchange bags and Peter gets stopped in security for carrying drug paraphernalia. Sadly, that's the highlight of his trip because he's soon kicked off the plane, put on the no-fly list, and is forced to take a cross-country car trip with the man responsible for his troubles.

My expectations were pretty low going into this, and for good reason. The trailers made it look like a complete rip-off of Planes, Trains, and Automobiles, and unfortunately it isn't as funny as the classic John Candy/Steve Martin movie. The first act sets up the scenario pretty well, but then it quickly falls apart when the two protagonists hit the road.

Ten years ago, virtually all displays on the market were CRTs, but they've gone the way of the dinosaur, replaced with digital technology&mdash;LCD, plasma, DLP, and LCoS. The resolutions of these displays are all over the map, from as low as 480p (remember those EDTV plasmas?) to as high as 1080p. In order to produce a picture, a display must convert the incoming signal to its native resolution, which requires some type of video processing and scaling.
