I don't trust screen caps. I buying a moving picture not a still picture.

Today, I viewed the German BD release in its entirety which should be identical to US release as it's region free from Paramount.  It looked very good!

Least of all Beaver's screen caps. They're notoriously unreliable!

When in doubt, there's no harm in waiting.

Yesterday, I wanted to post something in this thread and retracted my comment.

 

These two replies pretty much hit upon what I wanted to say...

 

Listen...

 

I have nothing against DVD BEAVER.  We have been friends of theirs for

many, many years.

 

However, I think that the site really has done a disservice of sorts to this

format over the years.  Their screencaps have caused more unnecessary

uproars about what may or may not exist in a Blu-ray transfer.

 

You are essentially scrutinizing over one or a few single frames.  Nobody 

does that when viewing a Blu-ray.  

 

And, not fully knowing the science behind how screen shots are taken, 

I would have to ask if the source the screenshot has been taken from has

been properly calibrated or not.  Should a monitor be calibrated, or, since the

screenshot is from a digital source would it not matter?  

 

...and again, I am not trying to knock DVD BEAVER.  If you want to put your

faith in screen shots rather than waiting for an actual review of the Blu-ray

itself, that is fine.  I just don't subscribe to the science behind providing 

screenshots as being a biblical representation of the disc itself.

What you do with your money is your business.  Anyhow, your comment prompted me to finally watch the German BD I bought several months ago.  I had a great time revisiting this western.

I'm not putting my faith in DVD Beaver's screen caps, I've cancelled a pre-order and am waiting because that review and those screen caps caused my faith in the Blu-ray to fade. If the consensus among informed reviewers is that DNR and EE have not been over used then I'll hopefully have time to reconsider my reckless action.
