Coming late to this party, of the screen caps posted early in this thread, the Fox War Classics DVD release appears most "film like" to me and currently is the version I would prefer until a proper BD release is available.
This highlights an important aspect of this hobby- don't be a BD prude. If a catalog title is still preferable on DVD (or LaserDisk for that matter) for whatever reason, then say so.
Studios need to be called out when they fail us, be it overuse of DNR/EE, poor transfer in general, poor packaging/extras, destroying bit perfect audio with watermarking (Cinavia), excessive DRM that affects playback functionality and consumer rights, etc.
One point about screen caps- they fail to take into account temporal eye resolution and temporal eye-brain integration effects, which can make video sources with relatively lower still-frame resolution appear significantly higher in spatial resolution when viewed in sequence, particularly if well-upscaled and maybe with higher display rates (even multiples of native rate)-The Organization of the Retina and Visual System
As I pointed out in the 3D Myths thread, DVD can handily produce outstanding 3 dimensionality on a properly ISF'd display, assuming the display device has sufficient native contrast, accurate colorimetry and excellent gray scale capability.
Yes, we all know the technical capabilities of BD and the potential of increased pixel count and larger color space BD's codecs provide. But they are meaningless if the studios cater to the buzzword-induced ignorance of the mass market.
The Patton BD release and others like it are evidence of the Bose-ification of the BD format (and the HT hobby in general)
I had hoped that DVD would remain the top selling mass market format and BD be the LaserDisk-like format catering to a smaller number of enthusiasts that care about quality, equivalent to the VHS+LD market of the 80's through about 1996- those were the days
