First, go to A Fistful Of Dollars *PIX* thread to have some idea to what the h*** are we talking about
When Universal studios started releasing Blu-ray transfers that equal
HD DVD transfers this year I decided to concentrate on "A" catalog titles that hasn't been "lobotomized" by excessive
use of DNR tools. Thinking that waxy, smeared transfers we saw last year is just an anomaly. Well I was wrong. The worst thing is they are doing these on very popular catalog titles. When The Cowboys
was released earlier no one really cared if it looks like this:
or this:DNR dialed at 11 leaving no traces of any fine detail or film grain.
But when a movie like TGTBATU gets the same treatment the uproar is definitely justifiable. The majority
of the transfer has been DNR'ed. Its just so disappointing. Even if I am the worlds biggest Blu-ray fanboy or the head prima donnas
of the format including people claiming to be "insiders", I can't think of an excuse to warrant this defective product
. Of course it is still amusing how they explain the "how" and the "why" when the Dark Knight
was released. Its humorous and at the same time so sad. Sometimes I wonder if they even know what their talking about or are they just marketing people hired to do damage control in the forums.
Like I said on other *PIX* threads everyone is welcome to prove us wrong. We "extremist" know what we are seeing. You have seen the screenshots posted much, much earlier than I did. You have read the early AVS members reviews that actually watched them.
Then again you can always fall back on that always works for you - "It's better than DVD
