Warner has announced plans to undergo major restorations of a number of its classic catalog titles, in anticipation of future next-gen release on Blu-ray and HD DVD.


According to the Hollywood Reporter, the studio has extensive plans in the works to create 4k restorations of some of its biggest vault titles. That's a quality four times greater than today's more commonly-used 2k resolution, which is standard for most catalog remasters.



Among the classics cited by Warner for pending re-issue include 'Bonnie & Clyde,' 'Cool Hand Luke' and the Dirty Harry films 'Sudden Impact' and 'Magnum Force.'

Cool! Can you break down the packaging details? Are they all in one big fold out (a la Alien Quadrilogy) or did they come in individual blu-ray cases? I know I'm not the only one wanting the films in individual cases, and 'Dirty Harry' in the coffee-table book...


Right?

I know what my friday night movie will be , Dirty Harry



Art

Mine shipped and arrives Friday. Won't have time to watch until next week, probably Monday. Might have a chance Sunday, but don't know for sure.

I second that question.


Art, I've seen your posts concerning DNR usage so I'm looking forward to reading your thoughts and impressions on the PQ of these films.

I checked out Dirty Harry last night and although I had to make do with a 42" LCD tv (1080) I really wanted to see it on the 128" 2:35 screen setup but will not bother until the weekend as well. Still, it looked pretty good overall but the real test will be the projector. I was thinking of the box set which I could have purchased but decided against it. I think the first film is the best any way. No no no no Callahan - don't you pass out on me yet! Love it!

Reports are surfacing that WB used an old HD master with some cleansing. I recently watched Dirty Harry series on HD cable and all of them sucked w.r to PQ.

So what exactly are you trying to say? You haven't even seen the BDs!

Mine is a forewarning to blind buyers.

They say that the masters are the same as the old DVD, and that the shots where Harry talks to Briggs on the first murder scene in Magnum Force are still blurred.


If this is the case, then Warner have conned us all lying about new transferts being stuck (they probably just corrected and cleaned years old transferts).

the used master for this edition blu-ray is the same as the one that we rediscovered for the special edition SD DVD

The blind buyers I am referring to are NOT visually impaired.
