Anyone get the Japanese releases from WB? Are they any better than the US releases?

What's a fake 16x9 conversion? Zooming a letterboxed SD source?

The proper setting for sharpness is always0.
Also my Oppo BDP-103D is region free.
That makes me awesome.

I rented 3, didn't take any screenshots but it looked like the same ancient HDTV master as the US one.
