I have this on HD-DVD and never thought it looked all that great. Wonder if there will be a notable improvement.

I have this on BD already and it's not worth a repurchase. It's a decent movie but not worth it. I'll stick with my current release.

Not unless they plan to greenlight, shoot, edit and release The Brazilian Job within the next thirty days

Good. After IJ Paramount should take care of Sleepy Hollow. The recent Blu-ray looks horrible.


EDIT: And they should take care of the Tomb Raider movies too.

Agreed.

If they do, I'll buy (I passed on the first release).

Still waiting for Tomb Raider 2! Far superior to the original. People shoot guns and actually get shot! Sorry the A-Team effect of Tomb Raider 1 got annoying.

I've held off on a number of Paramount titles, including ITALIAN JOB, hoping for better transfers - and it looks like somebody over there is finally getting the message that they need to do a better job with their catalog releases. TOP GUN, as good as it sounds, is still my biggest Paramount disappointment in the PQ department -- fully expect a remaster on that one, with the DNR knob dialed-back just a tad.

I'm actually glad to read this. I had that HD DVD of ITALIAN JOB and the picture was horrid and the sound lossy. This along with Face/Off are my two biggest Paramount HD disappointments. Hopefully Paramount will release Face/Off with a properly remastered video AND a lossless audio track.

Yah the HD DVD of this one is pretty lousy. I think I got it as one of my free discs from one of the promotions.


I would purchase a properly remastered Face Off.
