Mass use of digital noise reduction particularly in older tittles to "clean them up" in order to make them "presentable" for the Full-HD 1080p treatment is destroying the artistic integrity of film as we know it. For those who don't know, DNR is a tool that eliminates grain in an attempt to "improve" clarity, colour, textures etc, however what its really doing is removing detail by softening the image because grain is apart of film and as such when tampered with results in at worse case scenario a very waxy/cartoonish look.

post some pictures of the worst Blu-Ray transfers where DNR is at its worst.

I hate when this is used on films. The worst one has to be the Patton Blu-Ray.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
