Anyways i must respectfully disagree with your post and say that when people spend money on anything they are entitled to expect quality control has went into the product they just purchased be that a movie or a pizza or even a toothbrush.
In addition, the problem here isn't that it just isn't as good as we hoped. It's much worse.
I understand that these studios have budgets, and not everything is going to get great treatment and/or new transfers. I can accept that, and some transfers from several years ago hold up reasonably well.
In this case, however, that wasn't necessarily the problem. The thing that galls me about EE and DNR is that they have something good, then they go out of their way in a misguided attempt to "improve" the transfer. If anything, applying those things might even increase
the amount spent. They were capable of doing decent transfers back in 2002 (see Chicago from the same studio), but here they screwed it up. If they hadn't done that, this would have looked a lot better, and even we at AVS might have been pleased with it.
It's not that I expect everything to look like demo material. Just don't use EE and DNR. If this film's issues were in its video master, they shouldn't have released it until they're ready to redo it.
