This was the first film I ever saw in HD. It was at a CES or hi fi show in the early 90s. They started the film in SD on a 100"+ screen and then switched to HD, and I remember the difference was underwhelming. Maybe they're using that same transfer. That's got to be the worst looking BD out there.

No big deal, I can wait. Then there was the loss of special features. Again, no big deal, most of them are unwatchable. I haven't listened to an entertaining director's soundtrack since "Airplane.' But now we get mid 1990s...
This "800 lb gorilla" (the huge difference in reviewer's equipment) is something that has prevented me from posting in this thread. When a soundtrack blows me away I usually come over here to check to see if it made reference, and it usually has, but let's face it, the guy with a HTIB is missing a lot more than than LFE compared to a "real" HT system. I wish more people would list their equipment, and I appreciate those that have taken the time to do it.That being said, I...
