I thought these two films would help out people who have a tough time spotting Edge Enhancement, so they can know what the rest of us are talking and griping about. First off, before anybody attacks, let me state I saw NO edge enhancement on Shangai Noon. In fact, it is possibly one of the most beautiful film-like, detailed transfers I've seen in years. Very pleasing to the eye. The quzality of Noon is all the more amazing when you consider the DVD is a few years old. But watch it and its sequel, Shanghai Knights back to back and you're bound to think your eyes just went bad. Shanghai Knights, the newer DVD, suffers from what at times is just TERRIBLE edge enhancement. I noticed almost immediately in the film that picture quality seemed lower resolution, or less detailed. It wasn't long before I realized it was horrible edge enhancement that was obscuring the detail from the film print. There are SEVERAL instances in this movie where actors are shot in profile and you can clearly see the halos around their faces, especially around noses.(as if Owen Wilson's needed enhancement) It's almost like the characters are apparitions at times. Thanks so much, Touchstone, for not living up to the video transfer of the first movie. Or are you saving the good transfer for HD? This was viewed on a 38" Direct-view HDTV, 480P. If you can't see the night/day difference between no edge enhancement and bad edge enhancement on these films I fear there is no hope for you. (Assuming you're using a larger display with good convergence anyway.) You can see the same kind of difference on Scream 2 and Scream 3 if I recall correctly. 2 being good, 3 being EE-plagued.
