BTW - I've noticed grainyness on some movies too on both formats - Pearl Harbor (BR), MI3 (BR), and confirmed it wasn't my setup, but must be either the player or the discs (300 is deliberately grainy, not sure about Bourne). Still waiting to test Transformers.
Thank you for your kind words.
The Bourne Identity is a little grainy. HT magazine gave it a 4 out of 5 for PQ. Transformers is pretty darn good. There is some grain in the night scenes. I didn't see the theatrical release (4 year old son), so I can't compare it to it. However, I have heard from more than several members that there was some grain in the theatrical release in the dark scenes, so we got what was originally presented. I would certainly give it at least 4.5 out of 5 stars for PQ.
When the family first watched it, the closing credits started, I paused my 35 and said to my wife "This is why HD DVD was invented."
Definitely demo/showcase material, IMHO...Will
