It does kind of makes sense. All the captures of the titles that Xylon have exposed for being "garbage" had a kind of bad photoshop quality to them. Examples:
The Fifth Element (first release) = blur filter
Bram Stoker's Dracula = clipped shadow detail with levels and reduced color saturation
Patton = plastic wrap plugin
Dark City = unsharp mask and reduce noise cranked to 100%
Star Trek films = median filter
The Dark Knight = unsharp mask and contrast
Gangs of New York = all the filters combined
Somehow Xylon conveniently praised How the West Was Won, Braveheart, The Sand Pebbles, Shootem Up, A Passage to India, etc. I guess those were HD-DVDs in disguise.
