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.

I really don't see what's so hard about creating the thread when the pics are ready.

Bring on the pictures - I'm interested in seeing how this 2.76:1 super wide image looks on Blu Ray. I'd like to see Mutiny On The Bounty pics too.

Those screen caps are so bad they are not viewable!

I watched this 2 weeks ago.


Nice looking movie...I thought I saw some light EE in a couple of scenes, but that might have been my imagination.

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

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.

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

It seems Xylon mostly posts on weekends. Our posts are sure going to look silly once he edits the top ones with pics.

Doesn't look bad at all. A little bit of pastiness going on in the above shot though.


The anti-black bar people are going to go ape$#*! over this one.
