I am sure this happens with everyone. One of your favorites is announced for hi def release, you wait patiently for the day, spend your hard-earned money and.........Ugh. Not what you expected. Blu Ray is fantastic, but every once in a while, a studio just doesn't seem to care. For me, that title would have to be Out of Africa. Thanks to Universal, this one could have stayed on DVD. There's not much difference with the blu ray folks. A bit, yes. Not much. It's easy to compare, too, since the DVD version is on the flip side of the blu ray. Out of Africa's still highly watchable, but I yearn for the day when a proper transfer to hi def will be mastered.
