From that review:
Suffering from a noticeably filtered look, grain has largely been lifted out of the picture leaving a smoother viewing experience with moments of slight ringing and aliasing."

This is the problem with so many blu-ray releases of older movies that drives me crazy. When they do all this excessive dnr smearing to remove all of the grain, they are just removing detail from the image, resulting in a very fake, waxy looking picture that is far different from the film's theatrical appearance.

Entire thing quoted for truth [Big Grin]

It has been shipping from amazon for about a week.. very tempted to get it but I know the picture quality is going to suck. I recorded it in HD off one of the movie channels (cinemax I believe) and I have an idea the Blu-ray is going to look WORSE [Frown]

Is like an unforgiven sin I guess. Well then I'll be crucified upside down spinning my head and vomiting for not liking crappy Sixteen Candles.

Devolution here,

At least explain yourself. What exactly don't you like about it?

I mean there are movies that I don't like that everyone likes, but I give a reason.

"Crappy Sixteen Candles" makes me think you haven't even seen the whole movie.

I'm not going to bash you (yet) everyone deserves an opinion, and I myself have ripped Manhunter, To Live and Die in LA and Pretty In Pink to say a few. I'm just curious to hear your reasons.

We are DEVO

devo, you rip manhunter and LA, they are great. come on, the will graham speech where he figures everything out, is great in itself.

i like the movie sixteen candles, but i wonder why it is so well liked by most.

i also like the breakfast club, i cant figure out why though, its a bunch of kids in detention, and its more dramatic than it is comedic, yet there is alot of good laughs
plus that scene where emilo shatters the door is one of the stupidist things i have seen in a movie

i think fast times at ridgemont high is the movie Equivalent of chinese food, you watch and then not to long later your in the mood to watch it again at least i am

I want to start by saying that movie watching is so subjective and I have been baffled more than once when someone totally doesn't appreciate a movie the way that I do. But I know that so much including our own personalities and taste can influence it, so I try not to overly bash a movie even though I will definitely tell you if it is not a fav of mine. The old theory of one person's junk is another person's treasure definitely applies in the world of movies. [Smile]

With that said .. "Sixteen Candles" is one of my all-time fav movies! My top 20 is always changing it seems, but "Sixteen Candles" has remained in my top 5 for awhile now.

Devo .. below are a few of my reasons:

Forgotten birthday, The Rave-ups, Confidential note, Jake Ryan, 80's bedroom posters, Long Duk Dong, Graded School dance, Filene!, Water fountain girl, girl's underpants, house party, drive-in food tray, safe as kittens, 80's cordless phone, JAAKKKEE!, geeks in a trunk, Rolls Royce, prom queen photos, Dad explaining crushes, birth control pills, married..sheesh!, headgear, red Porsche, and make a wish!

[Cool]

I might watch it today now! thanks

I would get all emo if my family forgot my birthday NOW....let alone when I was an angsty teen. Not that they could...not that I don't start telling then how many sleeps there are leading up to it. [Razz]

It is a great film though.

Back in the day, we just called it New Age.

I think these emo-kids are pretty much the same as the new-agers from the 80's.

Well i guess that explains why my Blu-Ray 80s movies dont look like its full HD(1080p) [Confused] The background of the movies all look the same..Grainy. I thought maybe i had a bad HDMI cable? bc my tv and blu ray player are top notch. I spoke to a sellsman at best buys and he say most of the 80s movies on blu ray are NOT remasted in full HD. So i think im going to cease with 80s blu ray movies and stick to DVD format only.

The Best Buy guy was wrong - Most of the Studio released 80's movies are in fact full HD. And any movie shot on film is going to have grain in it, no matter what resolution it's displayed in. Now, some will have more than others depending on the quality of the transfer, type of film stock the movie was shot in, source materials used, etc. But I would much rather have a "grainy" looking image than one where all the grain and detail is digitally scrubbed out, which tends to be the norm nowadays.

I haven't seen that many Blurays but at least most old movies (70's/80's) are not worth the change. I really don't see why people get a hard on with this.
