Movie Reviews

Cemetery Mink | 08/23/2009
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I've just examined some of the fullsize screenshots over at AVS and this 'blu-ray' looks terrible.

It uses DNR and EE throughout.

DNR - In 2008, a lot of studios were using this process. Basically, it digitally 'smudges' the image to hide any evidence of film-grain and, predictably, blu-rays with DNR look like s--t. Most studios have stopped using DNR. But Paramount, apparently, is continuing to release this smudgy garbage and trying to pass it off as 'high definition'
(If you want the DNR experience at home; you can get the same effect by smearing vaseline all over your TV set. Yes, that's about what it looks like)

EE - Edge Enhancement; in DVD days, when everyone was watching on tiny televisions, studios would use EE which basically messes with the colors a bit and adds bright white halos all around the edges ('enhances' them) That might have made sense on a 10" screen, but on a decent sized television it looks terrible.

There should be a proper release of this soon. Wait for that."

"This movie has been ruined by DNR and EE. Do not support studios ruining the picture of movies through noise reduction and artificial sharpening. They think they can take the easy way out and upscale and DNR and EE the DVD version then sell it to you for $30+. IF YOU BUY THIS YOU ARE BEING SCREWED BY THESE CROOKS."
Classic movie - defective release
Adam Clotfelter | Colorado Springs, USA | 08/31/2009
(1 out of 5 stars)

"The version about to be released on 2009-09-01 is defective. Picture quality is from the 2000 DVD master. I would advise waiting until an updated release is made available, don't let them make you pay twice!!"
Horrible Transfer
Tromaboy | Seattle, WA USA | 08/29/2009
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Universal/Paramount really botched this transfer the extended scenes look fine but the theatrical footage uses the same transfer as the DVD I'd wait for another edition."
