They should all follow Sony's lead and offer free exchanges for these inferior transfers.
Noted on Traffic and Spartacus. I'd read something months ago about the Spartacus being worse than the Criterion DVD.
On those others (Enter The Dragon, Fugitive...etc)....ALL of those titles are of interest to me. These look bad also? I own quite a few 1080i D-Theater tapes and those are completely acceptable to me. I was actually planning to pick up Lethal Weapon 1 and 2 this week with Best Buy's sale.
