Blu Ray Screencaps of Rio Bravo. – The problem with this release is its re-using a transfer optimized for HD DVD and comes in at around 23GB, thats low for a film running around 2 hours and twenty minutes long. Warner try to keep the bitrate very low in a number of scenes, i believe to do this they needed to filter out some of the film grain and along with it some of the high frequency image detail, Its not all bad news, there are a number of scenes where the film grain is better resolved and seems intact, for those scenes the bitrate is higher and image detail improved.
