I had a chance to check out two recent Blue Underground releases on my video projector, and I was shocked and surprised that both of them (THE FINAL COUNTDOWN and UNCLE SAM) suffer from the same extreme digital filtering plus edge enhancement that we've been seeing from such Miramax titles as GANGS OF NEW YORK and COLD MOUNTAIN (and apparently, Fox's THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST as reported by Robert Harris in another thread). Has anybody else noticed this? Does ZOMBIE also suffer from this heavy filtering/edge-enhancement combo? I'm a little worried, Blue Underground is a "small" label known for being purists- so what happened with these titles? Did they switch mastering houses, and are they perhaps using the same house that Miramax does? I'm hoping somebody from Blue Underground might read this here and be able to chime in- unlike a big conglomerate like Miramax, I'd think some of their people might read a forum like this and might be able to respond and look into the problem, and hopefully clear it up before they release too many more titles. I'd hate to see THE BIRD WITH THE CRYSTAL PLUMAGE be subjected to this in particular...
