"Fantastic" in what way (as compared to the original U.S. BD)?
The original U.S. release was heavily criticized, and for good reason.
Can you compare/contrast the PQ of the 2 releases?
I've never owned the US disc, what with it being censored and therefore not worth the effort.
I compared it to the UK release, (again,censored, but not to the degree of the US disc), which looks dire.
If the US disc looks worse than the UK, I don't know what to say.
I'm not going to blow smoke up anyone's butt, by claiming the transfer is revelatory, no way in hell, it still as issues, but coming from owning the original Edko DVD, the re-mastered Edko DVD, the UK DVD and then UK BD, this is the best I've seen it look on a home format.
If I thought it looked like ass, I'd be moving it on, but I'm happy to toss the UK disc in the bin and replace it.
