Huh? Looking at the reconstruction above you can see that they further enhanced the hell out at least some of the scenes, leading to horribly pronouced grain and mighty halos. The halos ARE a direct result of the sharpening here.
Some other shots look like they do indeed show a bit more real detail. Why didn't they just leave the soft shots alone.
So they trade everyones soft, reasonably non-edgy, compression artefact ladden copy of TFE with an artifically grainy, real edgy version which is at least good from the compression side. Hooray!
The problem is the transfer. My hope would have been a new state-of-the-art transfer. Oh well.
They leave that for the tripple dip....
Was going to buy this remaster, will now wait for a real reMASTER!
