Iv'e watched films on DVD for about four years now. Iv'e had a progressive scan player and plasma screen for over a year, so i'm used to good quality picture etc. But lately I bought a couple of titles that just blew me away when it came to picture quality. Kill Bill R1 being one, and Ghosts of the Abyss R1 being the other. They don't have any special labeling on the sleave, so I was just wondering whether the studios are getting better at encoding all of a sudden? But on the other hand my R1 copy of Master and Commander has artefacts whenever there is sky in the shot, plus fog and dust. Anyone know if i'm right, or am I imagining it?
