I just re-watched the HD DVD (more closely, paying attention to the transfer more this time, and from a proper distance, ~ size/distance to a theatrical showing) and the HD DVD is pleasing IMO. I noticed a few instances of EE (opening credits, clock, closing frame), but even pausing at various instances where EE would be most noticable, I saw none in most cases. No real EE problem, no pasty DNR. Admittedly, it is not a very detailed transfer but at the same time it looks similar to films of that period that I've seen recently (past few years) at a local 'indie' theater. This particular theater actually showed The Breakfast Club a couple months back but I didn't make it. Honestly, I think it would have looked similar. In the end, I'm pretty happy with the HD DVD's transfer of this film and it is even more surprising given it's a single layer disc. If the BD is similar, I don't see much of a problem.
