But this 4K transfer looks like it's going to allow me to chuck the old tape into the trash. Still reserving judgement until I have it in my hands.
Interesting.. I've only ever seen screencaps of Alien on DVHS which was being compared to the Blu-Ray version on another site. The DVHS version looked surprisingly very good and held its own agienst the Blu even though it was inferior.
I'd love to see more DVHS pictures being compared to their Blu-Ray counterparts.
But anyway why would you throw the tape into the trash? Wouldn't it have some value now? Would be better to sell it I'd think if you do upgrade to the new remastered Blu-Ray..
