Utterly disgusting! This is an unbelievable mastering on blu ray. 20th Century Fox home video should be sued for producing this rubbish and failing to recall all of these affected Blu-ray Discs and not offering remastered replacements! It is tantamount to fraud. The copies of French Connection are utterly unwatchable. The speckling is like watching a VHS copy of the film broadcast on a 1970s tv where you can't quite get a good clear reception! Please, if you are curious--only buy from amazon, because you will most definitely want to send this crap back to Fox. In the New York scenes, Popeye is chasing a guy dressed in a Santa suit and you can actually see the red colour bleeding out of the edges of his costume, like you are watching some bad, primitive colourisation process!
Very angry and let down! Fox, you can have it straight back!
