So I got a chance to watch my copy. First off it's not perfect (surprise) , also there are more recent films that look worse on disc. The transfer is on the softer side but it's obvious that there is real detail in it's film source and it does look high -def. What detail there is looks natural. It's looks like film, it's photographic looking. The transfer is good enough that all of the matte backdrops are very evident. There are some edge problems but mostly you won't see them if you are not looking for them. I read the picture issues on blu ray.com and a lot of what is noted I did not see. Color is natural not sickly. Sound is good and is directional at times, flying bullets, flying arrows. I never heard any dialogue issues either.
All in all, good fun for 13 bucks. And if this stuff isn't enjoyable than why are we doing it.
