    Finished watching Royal Tenenbaums last night...i was happy to see the the reports of extremely excessive EE didn't seem to hold true, i didn't see much enhancement. BUT, there was a problem I noticed throughout the transfer - that it's entirely too bright!! the whites seem blown out and lacking in detail...i don't remembr it being like that in the theater, and i even popped in some other dvd's to make sure my TV settings hadn't gone out of whack.

    Did anyone else notice this? Some of the scenes actually strained my eyes.

    The transfer for this DVD looks ok to me.

    I tend to keep my contrast on the dark side so perhaps my setting compensated for a bright transfer.

    No problems here on either my set top based system or my HTPC system. It looks exactly the way I remember it in the theaters. It was always an overbaked look... drab and dingy with three or four really bright colors in each scene.

    The whites are hot, but it suits the photography and film absolutely fine.
