Even if that print exists, which is a second generational copy[I.E. not exact or perfect] to begin with which deteriorates at each viewing, and who knows how old, won't be even comparable to the newly restored master [from the camera negative] that this new BD's digital scan is derived from. So why don't you relax and wait for the actual product to arrive, and then we can advise you what side dish and wine goes well with that crow.
I have not said the disc would be either way, just that Universal have lied in the past and that PR is PR, all this thread was duplicated in the Jurassic Park thread where I caught a ton of crap from people and was wrong in the end.
Oh no wait I was right, same in the BTTF thread and the Star Wars thread.
As for the crow you can eat it or stick it where the sun don't shine if you like.
No one ate crow in the Star Wars, Jurassic Park or the Back to the Future threads but I have to when i have not once made a definitive statement about the disc?
Learn to read, simple really.
If you did actually read the thread? the paragons of virtue Universal have stated:
Its a new master
Its an old master
We went back to the mono
We used the 5.1 mix
Yes that was clear honest messaging, PR people want you to buy their product FULL STOP, they will tell you anything to achieve this.
If its a great Sony like remaster I will buy it, if like Star Wars, Jurassic Park and BTTF its an old bad HDTV master with DNR then I will leave it where it is.
That is what I have said all along, so crow to you.
I do not care if this post gets me banned from my own thread either, as of late any discussion of the actual disc, either first hand or conjecture is frowned upon for film reviews.
I have wen wrong about a definitive statement admitted I was in the wrong, have you?
Again I made no statements definitively bar the trailer colour timing looks like the Sky HDTV version, and do you know what?It bloody well does.
