@blackcolumn i found this just for you, 5 world renounded cinematographers (jeff cronenweth, roger deakins, dion beebe, mathew libatique,dick pope) and their take on digital projection vs film projection, not arguing aesthetics, but consistancy and cinematographers control over the image.

Film is beautiful, but a bit of a lottery, inconsistant, and a pain in the but for a DP sometimes, and with that bomb i rest my case.

Almost two years later, the guy himself shot The Last Jedi entirely on Kodak film.

yeah this is wrong. Yedlin wanted to shoot TLJ digitally, Rian said no. However, there are digitally shot scenes in TLJ like the Jedi Tree and Throne Room that blend well with celluloid. Yedlin could've achieved whatever wanted digitally. Disagree if you want, but don't incorrectly cite Yedlin's intentions to support your point.

As an amusing point of trivia, The Force Awakens also cut digital + film together and nobody noticed. This "debate" is intellectual diarrhea but make of that what you will.

'DETECTIVE PIKACHU' CINEMATOGRAPHER EXPLAINS WHY HIS MOVIE LOOKS BETTER THAN 'SONIC THE HEDGEHOG'

"Funny enough, I was offered [Sonic the Hedgehog] and after watching the trailer, I thought, I'm so glad we don't look like that," Mathieson told Newsweek.

Mathieson, a two-time Academy Award nominated cinematographer, feels the difference between boils down to film versus digital. Detective Pikachu is shot on traditional film, not digitally. Mathieson feels this decision makes the Pokémon film stand out.

"If all we're talking about is how these two films look, our film is better than Sonic the Hedgehog and I'm sorry, I don't care who I upset by saying that, but I think it looks better." Mathieson said. "There's no reason why you can't shoot a film like [Detective Pikachu] or Sonic the Hedgehog on film. If you had, [Sonic the Hedgehog] would look more realistic. I look at Sonic the Hedgehog and I just go 'yeah whatever.'"

Mathieson pointed to the contrast in colors between the mediums as a defining factor in what makes one look better than the other. He said digital cameras don't capture colors as well, especially with blues and cyan, and reds get "too noisy." Traditional film cameras can be much kinder, once you understand the exposures.

Mathieson feels there's something about how movies used to be shot that makes them stand out compared to modern releases.
