My DI is broken it seems. It makes noises and is very slow. One can see it work easily in a scene by the changing image brightness. It was not like that in the beginning. Mechanical failure? Has...

Cool Hand Luke and Heat are fine. Colour of Money is rubbish.

Blacks like CRT? But only for an all black image! How are contrast ratios irrelevant? Makes no sense. The laser can be modulated but how is this fundamentally different from a DI? It still limits the...

The third season of "Falling Skies" in the UK 3 season box has a black level well above 16. I had to map black to -15 on my Lumagen for an acceptable picture.

I disagree with the technical side of the review. This is a DNRed transfer and does not show the film as presented in theaters. Fine detail is lacking and appearance is oversmoothed and non film like.
