It's about time. One of my favorite movies and the DVD drives me nuts to watch on 118" diagonal, good upconversion and all.

The previous cover was definitely better, but as long as it actually comes out this time, I'll be happy.

I was going to pick this up after work but their website still has the old cancelled SKU
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Rounders...oduct&id=54908

and is of course listed as 'not available'.


Can anyone confirm that they received their copies today of the new release?

I'm generally not a fan of revisionist color timing in films (with exceptions - we differ on Aliens in that I think removing the pink cast to the film is an improvement even if the "steel blue" look has a lot more teal now). One of my least favorite "teal-ifications" is Three Kings, where colors that already had been extensively tweaked for a specific look got a fresh wash of teal and orange.

I'm looking at these screenshots at work now. And unlike films like Se7en, I don't have a reference for how this one looked in the theater. That said, I'm pretty thrilled with the way the BD looks. I wish more films (like, say, Grosse Pointe Blank) got the kind of fresh HD transfer that this one obviously did. The colors look more natural to my eyes. I don't know if the yellow cast of the DVD is a fault of the DVD, or if there was a tint added in post that this new scan is missing. The BD "feels" correct to me. But I've got nothing to back that up with.

It's a good looking disc, I just wonder what one is correct.
Aliens is the best DNR job Lowry have ever done but you are correct I dislike the timing totally.
Three Kings is a disgrace however, we agree on that.
Se7en is near perfect, and should be the yard stick

Different colors? Yeah. Teal and orange? I don't see it. No orange faces, no blues turned to teal. If anything, there's more *blue* (and not teal) along with more natural skin tones in the US release due to the absence of the yellow filter.

The Alliance release looks just as good though and since it more closely matches the DVD, maybe that is the correct look? I don't know.
