new digital recording fixes that crap...
This is sarcasm, right? If it is, then you're so right with that sarcasm that it hurts :)
If not, then good grief. We certainly deserve what we are getting :)
PS For those who really don't know, film grain is an ESSENTIAL part of cinematic expression that a director uses ON PURPOSE to express something he/she wants. Even when accidental (originally) and this rarely happens, film grain is an essential part of the movie in the form it has become to be known. It's not the same as "bad print" or "dust and scratches". It's part of filmmaking process, just like selection of script, dialogue, lenses, films, actors, lighting, sound effects, etc...
