Picture quality! Two Stars
The movie itself is a worthwhile to watch and you can read about that on the other reviews.
Some reviewers are wondering why people are complaining about picture quality. Let me explain some of the problems on this film.
With sharpening the edges there is a gloria outlining each object in the film that contrasts with the background. Look at the characters and you will see there is something like a thin halo surrounding the figure.
Through the use of hefty DNR detail is lost and given a softer look.
Now this is something different people find either horrible or nice. Whilst DNR does reduce noise in the picture it does this at the expense of detail. As a long goer to movies before the digital times I am not offended by some grain in the picture, but I understand that some don't like it.
Doing a master for a DVD needs other enhancements than doing it for Blu-ray. The sharpening used here helps converting this to a pleasing picture for the DVD format, it gets more of a focused picture and people don't blend to much with the background. Also the DNR helps to reduce the amount of data that needs to be compressed for the DVD format and thus it can spend that on other more important stuff like faces.
But for blu-ray this kind of masters don't cut it. They need to be minimally abused by sharpening and Digital Noise Reduction (DNR) since the format does not need it as much as a DVD.
So there, I hope that clears it up some.
I will buy this movie again when they have re-released it with an updated Master.
