'Now on the Big Screen in COLOUR!'
on 22 June 2013
There's been a lot of discussion about the transfer of these two films onto Blu-ray. Certainly, they are not as colourful and saturated as previous television transmissions or VHS and DVD releases.
They are rather different in appearance to what we've seen before. However, the level of detail, and overall picture quality is quite remarkable!
I can whole heartedly recommend the upgrade to the Blu-ray.
If you are uncomfortable with the colour palette, just turn up the colour on your monitor or TV screen. Also, the occasional light flare at the top and bottom of the film frame was apparently a drawback of the particular filming process used. I should imagine not too much could have been done about that for this release; unless the film image was zoomed in and cropped - and that's to be avoided at all costs!
Instead just think J.J. Abrams!
Yes, it is a shame about missed opportunities regarding interviews and extras.
Yes, a pity about the wrong Tardis and Daleks on the main Menu.
However, all things considered, if you love these two wonderful old movies do not hesitate to upgrade!
