cracked open the 2 disc set of Giant that streeted yesterday, and i don't know about anybody else, but the a/v here, specifically the v, is a BIG disappointment. there are numerous problems with it, most notably being the egregious haloing. this is some of the worst EE i've seen in a long time. then there is the lack of resolution. i've never been on Warners case to enhance 1.66 movies, becasue i've seen other titles from other companies (like Anchor Bay) that have gotten away it and produced spectacular results anyway. but here...something is crippling the transfer beyond the EE. i a lot of ways, it reminds me of some of the classic titles Artisan has savaged. a very ugly, harsh, artificial and digital look. the packaging is beautiful, the extras appear to be fairly interesting and generous, but the prime reason i bought it- the movie itself- it looks like amateur hour at the compression facility. i realize this isn't a classic in the sense that some other titles are, it always seemed happily pulpy to me, but damn, if you are going to put out a 2 disc set, at least get the video down right. very sad to see, given that Warner has been very consistently above average for a while now, in the transfer department. i sincerly hope this isn't a harbinger of more weak efforts to come. i just reread dvdfiles review for this and i don't know what they were watching this on, but i can't believe they didn't at even see any EE. figures in longshots frequently appear as if they are glowing. it's very rampant on my set-up, and detail is very poor.
