Indeed John, we all here are getting worried about you. Next thing you'll insist that digital is better than film
so not like me to admire a DI going via that post finish .

I agree John, when I am seeing a film shot in anamorphic that went through a 2K DI I cannot help thinking how much nicer it would have looked if they had done photochemical post. I can count the good DIs I have seen on the fingers of one hand.
The DI for 'Darjeeling Limited' didn't help much.
The zoom they had was very soft, I think going to 2K only made it softer.

It just isn't as interesting to look at as "The Golden Compass", for a number of reasons. And the more contemporary setting of that movie (vaguely early 20th century design) makes the soft light sources motivated in a way that the vaguely medieval setting of "Stardust" doesn'tm because that "period" calls out for darker lighting from torches, candles, etc.
