Watched this last night. Not my copy. My friend's copy. But his system is better than mine, so that's ok.
Anyway, this thing is certainly a bit of a mess. The biggest offender being caked on DNR at times. Piper's face frequently looks downright weird, with that wax dummy kind of look going on. Grain can be clumpy and not natural in look in certain scenes, but it is inconsistent.
The sound was strong. Dated, but never shrill. It feels as thick and rich as the PCM soundtracks on the best laserdiscs so that's a positive.
All in all, this is a pass for anyone other than die hards. But die hards can simply buy the other disc, which isn't as DNR'd. Therefore, it's a full on pass.
