Not exactly completely DNR and EE free. The first couple of minutes where Fonda's character is taking pictures. The closeup shots and the long shots have a very distinct look from each other. One has excessive DNR used and the other one mild or none at all. The transfer also need some more cleaning up. A minor nitpicking for me
But overall a much more pleasing PQ than the "remastered" turds we have lately.

Those screen caps are so bad they are not viewable!

This'll be the same encode as the HD DVD, right? I watched it (the red version) just yesterday, and it does look very smooth indeed. There appears to be a touch of grain (or perhaps just plain ol' noise) in wide expanses of sky, but apart from that it's very clean. Everything looks kinda waxy. . .

I would say that some edge sharpening has been applied, as the plane in the opening shots looks like it has a forcefield around it, and long shots of buildings also show the same symptoms. Thankfully these halos aren't the hard-edged variety, or this encode would've been ruined.

The video was encoded at 0 Mbps. While there is no video, the audio is interesting. This BD is recommended.

Yes. The video was encoded at a great 0 Mbps as it's from Warner.
