An improvement over the 2003 Milestone Ultimate Edition(2003),
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Phantom of the Opera (Ultimate Edition) [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
I spent several hours moving back and forth between the Blu-ray
edition and the Milestone DVD Ultimate edition (2003).
The picture clarity and the quality of the tinting
is very much improved in the Blu-ray version-the Bal Masque sequence is stunning!
However, why is the Blu-ray version presented in a 1.2:1 format,
while, according to IMDb, the film was shot in 1.33:1 ?
The extras in the Blu-ray version pale in comparison to those in the
Milestone edition. And you need a computer in order to view the
original script and the souvenir program, as they are in a pdf form!

'Persistent Gardener' - useful review, many thanks. And, just when you think you've found the best version out there, BFI comes along (December 2013) and trumps them all, with the best prints and scores (Carl Davis) around of both the 1925 and 1929 versions! (and both on BD). I've just done the same comparison between Park Circus and BFI - no contest, BFI is better (and the score is superb). Plus a 90 minute documentary on Chaney. So...time to buy another one I'm afraid.
