I got The Italian Job on BRD. put it in my PS3 and its all fuzzy. i mean you can clearly see the picture but something isnt right. I see on the back it is copy resistant and i dont know if the PS3 is triggering this function. Anyone have any idea?
I too have the same issue. I threw in PotC, a stunning disc and everything was fine. A little research yields the info that this is one of the 1st gen discs where MPEG2 was used for encoding instead of the far superior VC-1 or H.264 codecs. Although I have tested my other discs that are supposedly MPEG2 and while they exhibit graininess, which can be normal depending on the source quality, they did not exhibit the extreme artifacting that I saw in Italian Job. I am chalking this one up to a very bad transfer.
I can vouch for this - the Blu-ray and HD DVD versions of 'The Italian Job' both look pretty awful compared to most any other high-def release. Watery, washed-out colors and a pretty low level of detail all around. It's just the transfer.
