I wasn't sure if this is what people had been referring to when they described everyone as wax-works in older posts. I had expected everyone to be completely scrubbed of any lines or details in their faces. Perhaps its something I'll see more clearly in subsequent Trek movies.

I did notice the lack of grain though, and even though this may have me hanged on this forum, that didn't really bother me at all.
Last week I watched the entire Back to the Future trilogy (iTunes 4k Dolby Vision) and I must confess that the excessive grain in some of the scenes in the first movie was extremely distracting, although it wasn't as noticeable in the other two movies. Or maybe I just got more used to it and stopped noticing as they went on.......

Even so: it’s not the makeup itself that’s doing it. (Same bullshit trotted out regarding the dreadful Paramount BD of Zulu.)

The “clarity” of Blu-ray has nothing to do with it; stripping the grain away with some of the worst DNR I’ve ever seen on ST VI is what does it.
