Somewhere in Tier 1 is fair, but current placement suggests the quality of the movie may be influencing picture quality assessment.
Also, I saw a few strange compression errors in some black fade in/fade outs. Note though, that I wouldn't consider these "compression errors" any sort of problem that would keep the title out of tier 0 if I believe the picture quality was, in general, as good as those titles I just mentioned. I'm only really bringing it up to see if anyone else saw it as well.
