I got the trilogy as well and put in The Dark Knight Rises just to sample the quality. I don't like that the aspect ratio keeps changing. Sometimes the movie fills the whole screen and sometimes you see the black bars. I didn't notice in the theatre, but it's a little distracting when you see it on TV. Maybe I'll get used to it when I actually sit down to watch the whole movie, I don't know, but I wish they would have kept the picture consistent. I heard that the DVD version isn't like this.
You have to remember that the IMAX ratio is different than the ratio from the 35mm sources. But it's odd how Warner brothers is only doing it on the high def source, but for the regular DVD's they just crop the footage to the same ratio as the rest of the film.
