Remastered Edition Review
on 15 September 2011
Just to be 100% clear this is a review for the new Remastered Edition.
Firstly this is one of the best presented Blu Ray's I have come across giving the slip cover, great sleeve design and high quality post cards included.
While it's great to have this one Blu Ray I'm not sure how they can market it as a remastered version of the movie. The overall picture quality is very poor and appears to be up scaled from a low resolution source. I'm not sure how any one could have worked with this version of film, sat back and said to themselves 'yup, this is a good mastering job I've done'. Even worse, how did the transfer get approved for release?
The Uncut DVD that has been around a number of years looks much cleaner, despite being low definition.
The other big let down is that the Uncut version of the movie has not been included. Considering the movie is only taking up 7GB of the disc you would have thought the extra space could have been utilised, giving the user the choice between both versions.
I'm considering trying the Uncut Blu Ray that is floating about to see out of curiosity, if it has a different print of the film.
