Yeah, it's easier to see the manipulation of the night scenes in (slow) motion. Grain will be present in the first frame of a shot sequence then poof it's gone for the subsequent frames. Also unfortunate is a total lack of extras on the disc, but I thought the movie itself was pretty enjoyable.

Here's a snippet from an article on the making of the movie:

Quote:
I dare anyone to watch it and guess the budget, Clark said last year. And some media outlets took the challenge and estimated the budget at around $3m. I will laugh and remain silent, said Hughes when Encore suggests this amount. But I will reveal all on the DVD commentary. One of the greatest things about doing TVCs is that you get to hone your craft and create relationships, so I was able to find the best crew and tools, including two 35mm Panavision cameras. We also found a second-hand film stock supplier in Hollywood that got us short ends from Entourage and The Fast and the Furious for $50,000. But we didn't have any time. We shot 5.5 pages a day!

I'm baffled they even put them on there. The only thing to take away from it is now we have some proof they were DNR'ed when the inevitable "they're old" and "they always looked like that" comments spring up somewhere.

The transfer is reused from the 2004 DVD and D-Theater release, but with added automatic scratch removal (artifacts on the moving letters in second shot).

Looks like the deblocking filter went unchecked on that beach wide angle shot. It turned to a mushy mess.

Otherwise the movie was shot beautifully. Best film of 2010.

By the way, how come you have the specs for most movies when you upload screen shots, but not all? Don't you have to rip the disc and run BDInfo anyway?

I really enjoyed it as well. I haven't read the novel it was based on, so I'll have to get to that.

A good question. The shots for Never Let Me Go and several others (ex. The A-Team, Machete, Predators) were made from rental versions which I do have saved BDInfo scan reports and notes for, but hadn't posted yet. Here is the one for Never Let Me Go that I just posted:

You definitely should! I read it first before the movie, and while the movie was quite good, it doesn't have the proper pacing and extra bits of info and context from the book. (As one can expect.)

Faces of Death - Gorgon Video - US




Not sure if it's somehow just the disc I got, but there are several scenes early on with the compression/decoding artifacts in the first shot, where blocks from the previous frame are held over into the current one. Apart from that, I think the reviews I saw of this were unnecessarily harsh. It looks almost exactly how I expected. The movie itself on the other hand wasn't quite what I was expecting -- after hearing so much about fakery, the footage of animal slaughter was a bit much for me.
