Let's see. One guy likes preserving film grain as long as it's not too grainy. check. Another claims it's the worst BD transfer by far. check. Another that equates grain with aliasing. check. and a reviewer that describes grain as "noise" in the same sentence. umm....yeah, got it. Too much grain, not enough grain. This is exactly why I ignore 99.99% of reviews and just evaluate the PQ myself, on my own system with my own eyes. The one thing that does concern me is the contrast level for this release. It's curious that RAH hasn't acknowledged this question.
