Well since I have upgraded my primary display to an LED-backlit LCD, I am now more clearly seeing what others have pointed out. HD material with excessive DNR applied makes objects looked smeared and lacking in detail. And, yes, people's faces look like wax-figures. I have noticed this quite a bit with Universal's HD-DVD of "The Last Starfighter" and to a lesser degree with the "Life of Brian" BD. With my 57" rear projection CRT, the noise removal just comes across as the appearance of reduced resolution and was not too distracting. With a precision display, excessive DNR is very noticeable and a practice I hope will end with future releases.
