Default Ocean's 13 HD DVD: Oversaturated Red Video

I just picked up a copy of "Ocean's 13" HD DVD (just the single disc, not the set) and throughout the movie, in all the interior scenes the red colors are way oversaturated to point of making the video look terrible. The crazy thing is, in the deleted scenes, there's an extended scene which takes place in the casino, and it looks fine, but the actual shortened scene in the movie looks awful.

I don't believe it's my player (Xbox 360) or my TV, since all my other HD DVD's look fine (as well as the aforementioned deleted scenes).

Has anyone else experienced this problem with this HD DVD? Is this a problem on the Blu Ray as well?

Thanks.

this is probably the worst-looking new movie (including movies released up to three years ago) to hit hd dvd or blu-ray. there are parts that look like piss. amazing.

I thought it looked bad until I realized I'd too much red going through my VGA cable. It looks a hell of a lot better, and is MEANT to have an exaggerated color palette. Some scenes are overly blue, I believe this to be the director's intent as Out Of Sight tries the same thing to a lesser extent.

I rented it in SD, and the upconversion was HORRIBLE! The first thing that came to mind was how the HD version was.. now I know.

It was the way the film was meant to be seen. I saw it in the theatre and it had alot of red and blue, so I'm glad they're keeping it for the HD release.

Just watched this film and think its a 3 for PQ. For such a new movie, the film was very grainy and in some parts the picture seemed blurred by the grain (check out the elevator shaft scene). I didnt see this in theater so I dont have any comparisons as to what should be there compare to theatrical release. If I had to compare this film in terms of PQ, I would say it reminded me of Payback. And yes I know Payback got 4.5 stars but that film and this one just didnt do anything for me.

Overall glad I got this film from Netflix.

Whew luckily I read this thread before I went out and got this one. I will have to wait for it to come from Netflix.

Some of you people should try going to a movie theater sometime.
