butt you'll only need one!
On that cap I like the detail on the non-overblown DVD on Yul's hands...
So, the "circles (starting w/the MGM logo), o's, zero's, barrels, buttons, whatever are ROUND on this release!
So, maybe instead of this Blu being stretched the old DVD was an anamorphic squeeze job!!
Don't you just luv the Internet!!!
The BIG thing for me was the sound, great stereo separation w/the score; really sounds like they spent some $$$ on this back-in-the-day.
And as well as the film holds up for me [totally understand if it doesn't for others] the funky sound effects do as well (IMO).
The scene w/the closeup w/Yul & the gun does have some weird blu on the rifle, however not the sky as much as the cap mentionED above.
The detail isn't blown out anywhere near as badd playing this Blu comparED too the cap either.
Not perfect, yet certainly not the grave "Modern Video Revisionism" we've been subjected too w/previous Blu catalog titles.
I say if your a fan get it.
If not a fan, it's no 'must buy for demo quality disc' for sure!!!!
