Actually, I'm familiar with DVNR, and you are right, it was poorly used in the earlier days (look no further than the old Betty Boop Laser set that literally wiped out character ink lines!), but at least some of the issues with the ABOMINABLE DVD (at least the one I have) seem resolution related too.
It's just as you say, on small details on the Anchor Bay one, especially in distance shots and fine details such as Cushing's patterned jacket in the earlier scenes, they start to moiré, or "stutter" and "jaggie" a bit in pans when you project it up large. I'd say it's different than aggressive clean-up or "edge enhancement" and just the result of 480i res on such a wide image.
While I can often not bother on upgrades of 1:33 material, as they still look good on my system (unless they were not very good to begin with, certainly some early DVD's were lacking), full "scope" titles such as AS really benefit from the re-scanning to HD, and I usually am compelled to pull the trigger on the new versions.
Which I partially hate, especially in this case, as it is indeed STILL not the "definitive" version. But who knows if/when we'll get that?
I grudgingly just re-bought 7th VOYAGE OF SINBAD (and, this is an upgrade of a Blu Ray already!), because as a favorite film I know the old Blu was not color timed right and overly grainy/contrasty as a result of the chroma 'boost".
Just finally arrived yesterday from England, hoping it is as improved to my eyes as others say and the screen caps indicate...

I expect Australia will have these eventually and then do another massive box set.
Extras will be interesting to see, 7 of the 8 titles announced to date had commentary tracks done for their DVD's, but I'd love to see new ones appearing on a third audio track.
So this leaves behind in the wings
