This is probably due to the digital enhancing of an old master. With a fresh print, the shot you're referring to should look just about perfect.
Just picked this up and cant wait to go home and check it out.
I had the ability to pick this up at my local Best Buy this past Friday but decided against because I remembered the boxset that awaits us next year.
But, I was surprised to see it Friday. The alarm bells in my head went off when I saw it, knowing they jumped the gun on the release date.
Picked this up for $14 with tax at CC today, but to be honest I didn't feel that great about it.
The recycled artwork from the last DVD release is extremely uninspired and will probably cause most casual shoppers to walk right past.
Last week I got 'Romancing the Stone' for $9.99 which came with improved video, a cool exterior slipcover, a cool interior DVD cover, a cool 8-page booklet, and decent DVD-based extras.
Aside from improved video, this BR release offers very little to get excited about.
I've bought BR twice on DVD and now have a strong case of Deja Vu...I'm done with the BR.
no one forced you to buy this interim edition. Knowing that the new release is coming you could have chosen to wait for the SE set if you would have preferred that presentation.
I'm still baffled by the notion that there's something to complain about.
Any rumors of an HD DVD release?
I'm just telling you how I felt after making the purchase and opening the box.
There's not even any actual disc art...
I don't need a $50 4-disc set, but for an average price of $15 they could have given the consumer a bit more (a new cover, a slipcase, a booklet, disc art...something).
It's been done at this price point for other releases.
EDIT: The menu screens are also static and have a 1999 feel to them.
I feel great about my CC purchase. This is one of the seminal films (if not everyone's ideal version), looking better than it's ever looked at a bargain price. I consider it a LONG rental until the major release shows up. I'd rather they spent the gourmet dollars on the gourmet release. I don't need a special box for this glorified "tide-me-over" release.
The special goodies are coming,
Yeah, I'm waiting. Not about to buy the DC I don't like (still have the original DVD I bought in a bundle on eBay, unwatched by me), then buy the Ultimate DVD, then buy the HD version. Maybe if HD was years away....
Still, it's interesting to see those so impassioned that they'll actually buy (and not just rent) this to tide them over.
also you should have paid only 12.99 as that is the advertised price in the flyer and online.
I'm going to hold off for the UE. Another year when I thought it wasn't going to be done ever is no big deal.
$11.99 at our Fry's in the SF Bay Area. (sorry, this one cracks me up)
Why does the artwork matter? It's to attract the non-fan to the product -- you already know what Blade Runner is.
You're buying a much-improved transfer. Anything else is just advertising.
The idea that people get worked up about the covers and artwork on the actual DVDs is beyond my comprehension. Isn't it all about the movie? If it was a good movie, I'd buy it even if the cover was a paper bag.
Just put this on for a test run. Looks great. Not to sound like Roy Batty, but, "i have seen things"...you know the line. Nice detail anyway. Cant wait to watch it all tonight.
ah yes, reading comprehention (and spelling) whatever happened to them
Is the audio improved on the new disc?
