As for your last comment, think what you want, I honestly don't care. But you guys are going to a level of ridiculousness with this that I'll gladly stay out of. There have definitely been some bad looking BD titles recently, but this wasn't one of them.
I beg to differ (and I wasn't questing your display Kris), all digital displays have a slight DNR effect in themselves compared to a high-end CRT in the first place, check the moving judder bar test pattern on DVDO scalers on one of the better digital displays, compare it to my CRT
as for smoothing, I guess you could say that, but a CRT is more natural where a digital gives a "different" image and for the record my setup will display and resolve 1:1 alternating pixel patterns both vertically and horizontally, not all CRT's = soft images
and as for your video processing comment, I don't know where you are going with that but you don't like perfect y/c delays (meaning none), top level deinterlacing, perfected top and bottom levels so no clipping occurs via contrast/brightness controls, aspect ratio control, image shifting control,proper DVI to HDMI conversion, HD-SDI capability, 10-bit 4:2:2 processing and output, etc. etc.
but fair enough, I will just leave it at that
you can stay out of this if you want, but others wish to push for the best
just for the record, is your opinion the same of The first Mummy film BD release?
