Mediocre picture quality,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Django Newly Re-mastered in HD ALL REGIONS [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
"Remastered in HD from the fully restored negative, pristinely Faithfull to the original look", so it says on the cover. If you expect a picture quality like Lawrence of Arabia, or even like the Dollars Trilogy, you will be deeply disappointed. There is a kind of foggy layer and grainy structure (I am not talking about film grain)visible throughout the film. The Picture is blurry, smeary.
The Audio track was not recognized by my AV Receiver. I had to feed the Audio to my TV set.

Question: Is this the same transfer as the "Blue Underground" release from 2010 (as reviewed on the "Blu-Ray" hompage)? This seems to have the strangest "grain" I have seen in years; looks like a cheap offset print, or like a ink-jet from 20 yrs ago.

According to DVD Beaver, BU transfer is slightly better. You can check the screen shots comparison and decide yourself. Personally I have the BU edition, and although not perfect, I am satisfied with it.

The problem lies in the HD scan done in Italy and which has an egregious amount of scanner noise. It might give the impression that the BU BD is sharp, but it's not. It's just as if the HD transfer would be plagued by video noise.
The UK BD adresses this by degraining the movie to death.
So far, it's a lose-lose situation, until someone commands a new scan to be properly done.
