Shutter shenanigans

I stumbled upon an interesting comment on the IMDb explaining the disparity in visual quality of newer, digitally shot films;
“It’s Dean Semler. He shouldn’t be allowed to use the Panavision Genesis. He uses its 360 degree shutter feature (something you can’t do on a film camera – and for good reason) which allows him to gain 1 stop of light without having to light the scene properly. So in short he is too lazy to light t correctly and uses a cheap option that makes it look like crap. He does it in all his films these days, such as 2012 , this film, Get Smart, Apocalypto etc. And it cheapens the look of all those films. “
