Double pack?

http://www.amazon.com/Color-Money-Co...1162412&sr=8-3

The single cover for money lists it as a 25th anniversary edition, may be just like the Rocketeer tho and jut be a name and nothing else




Shame they lost the tagline tho

Looks like the Family Man blu-ray. Looks like the DVD was simply upscaled and brightened, as if they forgot to use the HD transfer.

That is an old, old transfer being used for this blu-ray. Image is barely any better than 480p, but it comes in a blu case so it must be HD right? This is why I lawl at 4k.

Dillon: My men were in that chopper when it got hit! Hopper's orders were to go in and remove grain and the detail just disappeared.
Dutch: It didn't disappear. It was scrubbed alive!

Have you see MGM's Blu-Ray of Scorsese's New York, New York ? If only it looked half as good as Color of Money.

It's a new transfer, evidenced by the pool felt color change.

Then the new transfer is worse than the DVD.

I normally don't comment on transfers but this one really is crappy. On the caps-a-holic link take a look at pic 2 and make sure to choose png and 1920x1080. There's actually MORE detail (look at Tom Cruise's shirt) on the DVD pic vs. the Blu-ray pic. Now I understand that the color timing seems to be different BUT when the DVD looks better than the supposed "Full HD" 1920x1080p image, there's something seriously wrong here.

Watched "The Color of Money" last night - it looks pretty horrid. No detail, murky blacks - it's one of the worst looking Blu-rays I've seen.

I have not seen it, I have only glanced at the caps looking for the pool table changes only as I knew about the "restoration" I may still buy it as I adore the movie but only when on super sale.

A review that, sadly, echoes my own sentiments on this disc:

Both look like DVD's, not Blu-rays. Two films that I have seen in HD and they looked HD, unlike the Blu-ray discs. Family Man on DTheater and Color of Money on HDTV.

Two of my favorite films, VERY poorly represented on Blu-ray. Maybe I am influence by these two being favorites, but Family Man and Color of Money have to be two of the worst "HD" transfers I've seen.

You said just upscaled and brightened, and that is clearly not the case as the tables have been corrected.

Oh boy... that is one rancid piece of incompetent home video dogs**t eek.gif That's a Disney/BV release? If anyone over there has an ounce of professional pride, it should be recalled.

Something went wrong in the process.
Disney usually does their BDs very well.frown.gif

This is the 2nd M.S. film Disney has screwed up (GoNY).
