The Same Washed Out Colors
on 21 September 2005
I'm very disappointed with the video quality of this Anniversary Edition because the colors look washed out just like the previous releases (in the UK and the USA) of the widescreen edition. A reviewer's comment on the USA widescreen edition posted at Amazon.com can also be fittingly applied to this Anniversary Edition: "... the colors are not just washed out, the digital remastering has changed the color tone of the film as if someone used a Photoshop/Premier digital filter without knowing what they were doing. The VHS and original [DVD, fullscreen edition] not only had rich color saturation, but also had a warm tone that felt 'right' with the period film. The [widescreen edition] DVD is not only washed out, but has a strong blue-white tone to it that gives a cold modern feel to the scene..."
There's no need to replace your previous DVD with this Anniversary Edition.
