You mean Blue Rei!
Taking frames from a motion picture and making stills from them is a crap
shoot anyway but when they're shot with the bottom of a coke bottle it
doesn't help.
That footage looks much better in a moviola. Or otherwise in motion. Not
just one frame.

blu-ray to me makes everything look like jellyfish.
Who knows what they put the stuff through? What algorithms of the forth
It  may look great to a Bluespotted Ribbontail Ray.
