It's been a long time since I took a close look at each of the
de-telecineing filters and made comparisons between each.  Back at the
time I did though, pullup's results seemed much better.  iirc, filmdint
(though it may have been ivtc) was fast but left strange blurryness in
the frames it reassembled that was visible on things like sharp
contrasting curving surfaces.  I couldn't tell if it was trying to apply
some sort of blending or just putting the fields back in the incorrect

A while later on today I'll try and get around to re-testing the other
de-telecine filters and make a fresh comparison.
