So I am hearing more and more BD releases have been using DNR to 'clean up' the picture. I find this very troubling. I don't want to see crystal-clear, soft images. I want sharp, organic transfers. Film grain is NOT a bad thing! Many players have DNR anyway. A lot of TVs do. So why ruin the actual disc, when the customer can just toggle such things themselves?

I don't like it.

Let me second that.
I'm in the process of reviewing the Trek film Blu-rays and they DNR'd the crap out of them.
The problem is that there are some reviewers out there (not at Upcomingdiscs) that complain about even small amounts of grain.
While I'll complain about excessive grain, I often point out that grain is a part of the picture and the filmmaker's intent.
The Godfather restorations are exactly the way it should be done. The grain was not removed.

Good call B. I'd like to see the buying public educated on this point.
Maybe then the studios wouldn't feel the need to scrub the nuances out of a film.
The new Skynet version Blu of T2 is DNR's as well. Bummer :-(

Watching Clear and Present Danger, and it's like Smooth: The Movie. There is also an awful amount of motion blur going on here. But it seems to be on the DVD, as well so I can't complain.

I don't have much to contribute, other than agreement that this is a bunk technique used to churn out lazy transfers at 1080p.

I gonna be honest, I clicked that link dvdbeaver to check out what your talking about becks, but that has to be the busiest damn website I have ever seen.  It looks like a warzone of text.  So I exited out.

Well, that's because it redirected you to the main page. I found the review via google. Oh, well.

Dragon Dynasty's release of The Killer is probably the worst DNR I have ever seen. I have only seen pics (on DVDBeaver), but there is less fine detail on the 1080p screencaps they have posted than on the screencaps they have for the Winstar non-anamorphic DVD release. Yikes. Just yikes.
