I don’t mind DNR. Film grain is annoying when you watch an old film on an HD or 4K TV, and it obscures a lot of detail, such as the skin on some characters and some objects in the background. Plus, I don’t want to have to be reminded that I’m watching something that isn’t really happening, I want to watch something that feels as if you’re seeing a real event with your own eyes.

Sure, DNR has its flaws, like how it makes the image quality a little muddy and blurry, but it’s better than having to see these little specks while watching an old movie on an HD or 4K TV all the time.

The unfortunate reality of the Star Wars prequel and Disney trilogies is that they will always be around. Forever. They will never go away. It can never be undone.

DVNR is just a tool. When used right , it’s great. When not, it’s terrible.
Also, just like any tool, it isn’t always needed for the job at hand.
But, sometimes grain is distractingly noisy.
Example: I prefer the 4K77-DVRNed edition of Star Wars to the non. There’s still plenty of natural grain, but it’s not like looking through a sandstorm.
Meanwhile, I’d rather watch Predator on VHS than the DVNRed-to-hell BD disc.
