Your problem is that old 73" TV you have. You see, any movie that was made before that set was produced looks great, but the new movies just look awful. The only solution for you is to buy a new TV to watch those new movies. Of course the old movies will look bad on the new set, so you will have to expand your room and keep both.
Every time I rent a new d.v.d. it seems picture quality gets worse. Just rented the new superman and it looked like a v.h.s tape . I sometimes think there is a problem until I slip in one of my older classic movies and find picture quality is stunning Mabey the movie studios are forcing us to go blue-ray. The only new releace that looks great is Star Wars whats going on? So sorry just killing time until my poker game starts in a few.Hope yopu all get a new Toshiba d.l.p. for xmas ha ha ha steweeeeeeeeeeee
