I'd like to disagree with "A Nightmare on Elm Street". Sure, there is minor DNR in some scenes, but not "throughout entire movie". The image is fantastic to say the least, and the audio is enticing. I would rate this transfer no less than a 4.5/5 for both audio and video, with the audio slightly given the lead.
I have the newest DVD release of this movie, and it looks fuggin disgusting. Blurriness, scratches everywhere, and the audio isn't clean at all. The Canadian Blu-ray release of this movie is phenomenal to say the least, and sitting around on your computers looking at comparison images is not going to lend you to an accurate portrayal. Anyone who owns this movie will vouch that this movie isn't "FULL OF DNR". The picture is absolutely attractive, especially the closeups of Johnny Depp or Tina.
Out of my collection of 100 HD-DVDs and Blu-rays, this is the only movie that I would hold on the tightest to. It's a rare gem, and it shouldn't be listed as is in the list.
