Quite a few of those pre-2000 2.35/DD 2.0 have been shown in the past couple of months. Could it be they're going back to the good ole library and giving those gems one more airing? Nah, too good to be true.


But if they did, the ones I'd really like to see again are Geronimo: An American Legend, Les Miserables, and Star Trek: Generations. Those were the top of the cream.

"Top of the cream" sounds better than "cream of the crop!"


Maybe we need a new phrase... "best of the OAR".

Generations had awful EE. An eye sore.

As mentioned in another thread I also see EE in "The Fifth Element"


I have never seen this before in a HD transfer and thats what led me to wonder if it was broadcast in true HD. It takes away from that smooth detailed look you expect from HD.

I'm amazed you have never seen this before. I see it all

the time on HD transfers. The majority of transfers has it.

Usually the haloes are small enough to not detract, and

only in some shots it's well visible, but it's there.

Concerning FE it's a Columbia Tristar/Sony transfer and

these have all EE (little enough to go unnoticed if you

have not full 1080i resolution) and look usually very crisp.

Have not see FE in HD yet.

Despite the edge enhancement in Star Trek: Generations, it's among the very sharpest HD movies I've ever seen. And I'm talking about real detail, not artificial edge-enhancement detail.

It was on HBO-HD in January 2000.
