I picked this one up last night at BBY...
I only watched the first 15 minutes of the film so I can't base my initial impressions across the entire film, but it is a fantastic transfer. I've bought the last two DVD releases of this film with the 5.1 remix. This new mix really brings out the "lost" life in this film! It still doesn't compare to anything from a modern day standard, but it holds up very well.
For a remaster, I'd give the PQ 4/5 and AQ 4/5.
If you're on the fence, IMO this is a definete add to your collection!
