Those Die Hard screens look pretty great, I wish all the older catalogue titles could look this unmanipulated.
The Shining looks OK, but not much more. Seems too smooth. And I don't know if it's because of some grain-suppressing algorithm or because of VC-1 at lower bitrates but I'm really not liking the macroblock-like blotches that can be seen everywhere in the grain, for example the back wall in the second shot. I don't know how much of a difference it makes during playback, but just looking at the screens like this it's not even close to the solid grain structure on Die Hard.
