Wish there was a comparison to the HD DVD version or the US Universal BD or was that never released?.

I can't imagine the HD DVD looking very different from the Universal BD. In any case the new Criterion scan is vastly superior (unless you're of the opinion that a bit of teal or different framing overrides every other aspect of the image quality.)

It has happened many times with Universal so it's easy to imagine.

That's... really kind of awesome.

Definitely picking this up during the next Criterion sale.
