None of these transfers could possibly compare to the DNR'd mess that is Anchor Bay's Blu-ray of The Osterman Weekend The colour timing is also completely off, leaving all of the characters looking like wax martian figurines.

My top 25 films:

1) Jackie Brown 2) Nashville 3)Apocalypse Now 4) Pulp Fiction 5) All About Eve 6) Blue Velvet 7) Zodiac 8) The Getaway (1972) 9) Almost Famous 10) Tenebre 11) Sorcerer 12) The Wolf of Wall Street 13) Mildred Pierce 14) The Towering Inferno 15) Talk to Her 16) Dressed to Kill 17) Rabid Dogs 18) City of God 19) The Dead Girl 20) Adaptation 21) Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind 22) Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon 23) Happiness 24) Spirited Away 25) Harold and Maude

I unfortunately ran into the scourge of DNR when researching a blind buy recently. "The Good One" looks like a charming little film from 1956, but VCI Entertainment seems to have moderately botched its debut on Blu-ray with digital processing.




Perhaps it doesn't like so bad to deserve a spot in this thread, but it is a shame to see it de-grained. The transfer could have looked lovely if a more authentic approach had been taken.

Predator might be the worst, but since it has a much better BD out without DNR I can't say it's the one that bothers me most. That would be Star Trek VI, which looks godawful and there is no better version available.

The Color of Money probably looks the worst next to Predator.

Basic Instinct from Lionsgate has really annoying temporal noise reduction that has lovely motion trailing and smearing. Not the worst but one that's up there for me

The German Kundun disc is the worst that I've seen.

Same way Blade Runner on blu-ray does not look like it did in theatres color-wise. They ruined Alien on blu-ray as well with the revisionist color timing.
So many Fox films have the teal/orange tint that they should name the process "TechniFoxcolor" and everyone who owns a Fox Blu-ray will know what it means ("The King and I" probably being the worst but older titles like "Bus Stop" and "Desk Set" also suffer the Tealization that "Aliens" suffers from, maybe even more so)

Aliens doesn't suffer from any tint. It has the same teal cast that Cameron started filming with The Terminator.

The original Aliens and Terminator theatrically weren't blanketed teal, and it was impossible to get the look on both of those remasters without the use of a digital DI, which didn't exist then. And no, they didn't use teal filters when filming that turned grate green and Arnold's gray trench coat green. You know that.

Just be grateful you didn't have to suffer through an actual viewing. Probably the worst looking blu ray I've ever seen

Very true. I never bought it, obviously. I have the old one. I'm still waiting for a proper re-master. Fingers crossed Fox will do one when the new Predator movie comes out.

People should go back and view the caps from the 40 Year Old Virgin release.
