Do you actually have the ability to behave like a human being, or are you just a typical Internet type? Really. You began a thread that said EPIC FAIL - you haven't changed that title, but you have said it's a worthwhile release. And I'm happy to answer your belligerent and belittling questions, even though I've answered them repeatedly and others who are in the same position as I am have also answered - so pay attention and maybe this will sink into your head - I have owned both 16mm and 35mm dye transfer prints of this film. You have not. That gives me an edge. Oh, well. I saw one of them just two years ago. I've seen this film projected about thirty times. That gives me an edge. Oh, well. Someone else in this very thread has spoken of recently seeing a dye transfer print. The one person we KNOW who HASN'T seen one EVER is - wait for it - you. That gives you no edge and you have behaved like a little mewling child from the beginning of this thread to the end. So, I know if it's too dark or too bright because I know what this film looks like. I know the new color timing, while not perfect, is in the ballpark and well in the ballpark because I know what this film looks like. And yes, I couldn't recognize whatever of your postage stamp-sized idiotic caps and I take the blame there because you, being who you are, sucked me into something I should never have allowed myself to be sucked into. Point for you. But, then again, you thought Mr. Asher won an Academy Award or was nominated. Point taken away. We're even.
So, let me boil it down to its essence for you: The EPIC FAIL is yours. You can't even apologize for it. And you continue to base things on screen caps even though you've seen the damn thing. There is NO SHOT in this transfer that is too dark. Period. That is the way those particular sequences were lit and it is obvious or should be to anyone who has seen any Hammer film projected. Do you even know what a low-con element is and what it was designed for (partyslammer quickly runs to Google to find out) - if you did, you would know exactly why the Warners DVD is so grotesquely wrong in every way. And, for the last time, even though you and others kept on with the "blue tint" - no, there is no "blue tint." There is blue where there should be blue. The End.
Give it up, pal. You were wrong when you began and you are doing yourself no favors by continuing your attempts to belittle someone who knows what he's talking about. I know you Internet trolls and types love to do it - you live for it - it makes you think you're special, but you end up looking really silly, especially when you do have to backtrack on your EPIC FAIL and say it's a worthwhile disc. It IS a worthwhile disc - not perfect - but as good as we've had on home video and a gazillion times better than the Warners DVD travesty.
I'm sure you'll carry on because you Internet types live to carry on long past the due date. Yours expired the day you made this sorry thread.
