i already got it on saturday, unfortunatelly i don't have the sd version, so i can't really compare, in my oppinion (1080i display) the picture looks really nice and crisp, for a 30 year old movie....
I got mine Friday and while it's not the gem of my HD collection it's a decent transfer none the less.I hadn't seen this movie in years and after watching it, it reminded me while it's one of my favorites.
I got it Saturday. Yes, it looks actually pretty good for its age. I was pleasantly surprised. Universal even formatted the 2 featurettes Anamorphic which they have not been doing. It was alot of fun to watch again and holds up very well. Worth having in my collection definately.
I'm not sure why, but my experience is quite the opposite. I am seeing something very wrong with this transfer and would love for some one to confirm. I am seeing bad jaggies all over the place. It looks like a very bad scaling job. I verified all of my components/settings and tried other movies, and it's not my equipment (Matrix, wow!).
Just watched the extras. Here the segments of the film are encoded properly and look 100% better. It really bites to see what it could have been. This HD DVD has definitely been encoded wrong/bad. Too bad...
Haven't watched it through yet, but sampled a good portion of it last night. Looked very good to me, better than a movie of this vintage/caliber should look (i.e., it's not a restored epic). Didn't notice any jaggies or encoding problems; picture was a tad dark but that's probably the film stock used.
