The people who are criticizing it are not doing so without having seen it; they are doing so based on the screen captures posted at dvdbeaver.com which are ripped directly from the Blu-ray disc. Screen captures are inappropriate for judging certain characteristics of a film's transfer, because the motion of the movie in playback can change the perception of those characteristics.Originally Posted by Robert Crawford
I'll tell you later today when I actually watch my BRD of it unlike some of you that are criticizing without doing the same. Also, you and I had this argument before about captures so we'll never agree about this issue.
However, color is not one of those characteristics. Whatever colors are displayed in the screen captures are the colors that are actually stored on the disc, and therefore are the colors that will be displayed when the film is in motion.
Unless a given screen capture is of a frame that is somehow not representative of the rest of the film--and there's been no indication that that's the case with Do the Right Thing--screen captures are a perfectly adequate way of judging the color of a DVD or Blu-ray disc.
