Will Universal ever learn from their mistakes? Why is it taking them so long to put proper effort on restoring and remastering catalog titles?
Ah but Universal did hear us so they invited a promoter or two who declared Universal had 'changed its ways' and then the studio went and released BDs with the same old issues, but they did work on the PR part.
As for 4K Universal did address this in a PR piece saying their automatic filtering makes their 2K scans look like 4K. Relieved now? Universal saved money.

You mean by hand tools? But automatic DNR is much cheaper and it not only gets rid of print damage it also wipes the film clean! Clean of film grain and clean of fine detail, but dont worry Universal uses EE to 'save' some info.

Well the websites 'job' so to speak is to repeat what the studio/distributors say rather then judge them on their track record.
