Hi Def Digest gave the original Wonka 4 stars, so I figured aside from some grain and source limitations it'd be as good as Wonka gets. Unfortunately I bought it tonight and now I'm wondering if 2 versions are floating around.
On both the A2 and the 360 HD-DVD player there are horrible jaggies throughout. it looks like 480p, not anti aliased. It reminds me of the issues with perfect Strom. Definitely 1 star, not 4. In fact I put on the SD disc and it actually looks better. there's no more resolution, but at least there isn't star stepping on contrasty edges.
Did I get some sort of old pressing? Please tell me they don't consider this a Hi-Def title. ...and again, I am not talking about the source. Old movies can look great, grain, dust and all. This is a digital artifact problem mostly related to low actual resolution.
