I guess that's that then. Everyone move along, there's nothing to see here. All is well. It will pass. Xylon, no more threads, you troublemaker.
Yeah I was a little surprised by that post he made. I respect him but man, that was odd and a little contradictory of what he has been saying for the last few months. I wonder if this was a film he likes if he'd have the same thoughts on the dnr issue...
I understand that on this title and mummy returns that the DNR isn't THAT bad compared to Patton and others but the fact remains it didn't need to be done and the hd dvd versions are proof it could look better without it so why do it?
To say people should just shrug their shoulders is IMO lame since I have NEVER seen any human quit doing something without being asked/pressured to do it. Why people think studios will magically stop the DNR stuff without being criticized for it is beyond me.
It is sad that here we are, in 2008 and the common mentality of the human species is a "whatever" or "I don't care" approach which can be seen everywhere really. I DO agree that people shouldn't want to burn a studio for something like this but again, why is talking about it and being upset bad? I continue to go back to early DVD days when the complaint was of non-anamorphic discs being released.
There is no doubt the complaints helped change that so why do some find the DNR complaint issue so bad? Why do some who do not care get so upset at those who do care? At worst nothing changes. At best studios quit this and you get a better product. Let the "dnr whiners" have their say and go enjoy the product and hopefully the "whiners" will get enough say to provide you with a better product. Sheesh.
Oh and xylon is the devil.
I am so glad we have a xylon out there to do this stuff and it is pathetic some criticize him for doing something useful that helps everyone....I guess those people love the tagline "ignorance is bliss" I for one do not.
