Here's a great article about Christopher Nolan's flat-out refusal to switch to digital because he thinks (correctly) that shooting on film gives the viewer the best possible viewing experience. He talks about how he even has dailies printed up each day to watch. http://www.thewrap.com/movies/articl...-not-art-43501
I completely agree with him. I went to see The Avengers recently, and the visual experience was not great. The film looked like it was shot on a cheap digital camera instead of on film. It's getting harder and harder to find theaters that will actually shows actual prints of movies instead of digital projections.
