Worked for Collateral, did not all for Public Enemies

Pretty much
To clarify, I don't necessarily agree with that desire, at in the context of period material like Public Enemies. Collateral and Miami Vice - I thought the video aesthetic fit like a glove. Unfortunately he seems to want it for everything now...

Public Enemies, for instance, has all the nasty "tells" of a video shoot. It was quite distracting. Though, I still don't think digital is as ready for prime time as we'd like, the way The Social Network was shot was quite visually interesting using digital cinematography (didn't they use the RED?).

There is still something to be said for real film, shot in 2D, with the right stock, lenses, color timing, and lighting. Too bad more people don't shoot in 65mm with a normal color pallet (none of this teal and orange leaning timing and contrast pumped stuff) and we went back to the grand, giant screen movie experiences of the past...

I am working with him right now and he shot this project on 35mm.

The US LD was a demo material for sure when it was released,but a lot has happened since. I own all the domestic releases including the LD, but I'm quiet happy with the BD.

According to Amazon there's a new 2-disc edition being released on June 19th. Any idea what this is all about? I know a lot of people weren't satisfied with the video quality of the original release.

There are people who aren't satisfied with ANY video quality.

I wouldn't place any large bets on the accuracy of an Amazon description.

It'll be the same transfer and less than optimal encoding... this is WB we're talking about here.

Don't bother rebuying.

No idea if the encoding would be any better.

That doesn't mean the encoding won't be better.

Extraordinary sound mix !!

One has to jack up the volume to hear what's being said, then make a mad dash for the remote when someone fires a gun
