Agreed. There are so many movies from that era which were properly remastered that retain a film-like look.The Bluray of the OT is one of the worst transfers, sound and picture wise, of a release that had been so long awaited. The picture is painful to watch at times as stated but the sound was just as bad. The highs were tinny and shrill and the bass was overboosted where the whole soundstage just sounded artificial.
People can cite that you can only do so much with the dated source elements for the sound but when you look at the care and balance that was taken with other older iconic films like Jaws and Bladerunner, then you know they just did a piss poor job in all aspects of the Blurays. The worst part for me was reviewers praising the sound which tricked me into actually buying the OT on release.
Agreed. I watched the Top Gun remaster at the Empire Times Sq in FauxMAX. The image and sound were superb.Having seen the announcements over the weekend, am I correct that this is just a "digital" download release of the current Blu-ray "complete saga" version and neither the original and unaltered versions of IV-VI nor a 4k-mastered version of all of them?
If so, how utterly disappointing.
Agreed. There are so many movies from that era which were properly remastered that retain a film-like look.
The current versions look so digital and crappy..and the sound is just way off.
It's really ashamed Lucas just didn't care enough about these movies one way or the other.
I think it's been well established that his version of caring is just different than ours. He wanted a consistent look for all six films, even if that meant dragging down the quality of the OT.It's really ashamed Lucas just didn't care enough about these movies one way or the other.
