I agree with what the Zoetrope representative said about the earlier releases. They look too Orange in the fire lit scenes and others. The Supebit and others look like they have an orange filter slapped all over the screen. Look at the pictures were Mina seduces Helsing as an example. A fire lit camp will not drown out all the colors of people and their sorroundings that much. Technically. These images are from Dave Mack without the sloppy writing. I think they could of balance the picture instead of swingin one way or the other. A compromise if you will.
SB to me seems to overwelm the whole image with Orange and the BR has some orange but not enought. Some areas look like they were lit with Florecent lights.
Now these images from the book that Dave Mack has, they seem balanced. Some orange were i think it should be and dark with some detail were the fire should not reach. These are from different scene so it might not seem fair, but they could of made mix both orange and muted colors to find a balance.
Now this is just my opinion. I dont claim to be an expert on cinema or photography. Coppala originaly could of been portraying
an atmosphere of a woman's passion, burning hot since the Vamps were making her Horny. Fire, hot, horny and it might not "work" with muted reds. I might be wrong and if you know please enlighten us. I added this for the sake of arguement. This is one movie that's worth dissecting. What do you think?
Dave thanks for the images. The Originals can be found here:http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...=915281&page=8
