Ghostbusters ('99 release)
The Grifters (HBO edition)
Annie, How the Grinch Stole Christmas (animated)
the older, redder, non-anamorphic CHARADE (criterion)
OKLAHOMA! (Todd-AO version)
good one Matt!
The Big Lebowski. The newer Universal SE pales in comparison to the older Polygram version.
Though they both have issues, this site http://www.dvdbeaver.com/film/Reviews/bigl.htm hurts your argument more than helps it. Check out the gun-in-the-face shot; egads! to the Polygram version...
The Teminator (Image)
Silence Of The Lambs (Criterion)
Ghostbusters (1999 release)
Rear Window (2001 release)
Halloween (1999 release)
A Hard Day's Night (MPI)
I'm sure many people prefer the older Reservoir Dogs. Hopefully they fix it with the upcoming rerelease. As several have already said, I definately prefer the old Ghostbusters. I never sold a DVD so quickly in my life.
Interesting. Why is the older version preferred? (I've never seen the anamorphic disc.)
I second the Todd-AO Oklahoma and the previous Halloween. The new ones were major disappointments.
The Black Hole (Anchor Bay..Non Anamorphic)
The Disney version is a horrible, blurry, grainy mess!
This movie will only look SO good because of its budget, but I think I prefer the THX Evil Dead II Anchor Bay disc to the Divimax version. Something about the newer version just bugs me.
Two more votes for Ghostbusters and Robocop, PQ-wise. My ideal Robo is the image from Criterion, sound from MGM.
1- Ben-Hur: Special Edition (Better colors IMHO than Collector's Edition)
2- Wizard Of Oz: Special Edition (Better colors IMHO than Collector's Edition)
3- Reservoir Dogs: Widescreen Edition (Better than 10th Anniversary Edition), still waiting for better edition (maybe 15th Anniversary on 10/24/2006?)
Totally agree with the Robocop (Criterion). Just the fact that's its the director's approved 1.66.1 is enough for me.
I echo the preference for the Criterion Silence of the Lambs. The MGM one is too bright. I also like the 1999 Patton more than the mushy, bland 2006 transfer...
Kingdom of Heaven
Strangely, the Extended Editions for both films are too bright and not as filmlike as the original transfers. They just don't look like the theatrical prints at all.
