The best its ever going to ever be.,
This review is from: The Curse of Frankenstein (Blu-ray + DVD)  (Blu-ray)
I know a lot of fans have slated this release due to aspect ratios and washed out colours, but i find that not the case.what we do get is 2 different aspects to choose from, lots of deep colours, rich reds and lots of depth in the picture. the outside scenes and the opening 5 mins are a bit questionable, but the WB release a few years ago was the same. I think this is the best we will get for this release. there are lots of extras to keep people entertained, even though a couple of extras have dissapeared, this release is still great. the cover also has a very HAMMER feel to it as well. what more can i say.

By all reports, it could indeed be better. Low data amount for each feature and the 1.66 matte was not applied correctly. What to do, what to do... Here's hoping WB can turn out something different in the near future.

Mr Gart, I think jaykeys is right. From Hammer's blog and the account of restoration in the extra features, it's unlikely that there'll be an improvement on this release - least of all by Warner, some of whose materials have in fact been used for the Lions Gate version; Warner have already gone off the rails on their own by misframing and unwise attempts at picture-tweaking. In any case, Hammer have bought back their titles from Warner and UK video rights are now licensed to Lions Gate.
