Received some gift certificates to Best Buy this summer, and I was about to buy the Moonstruck DVD until I saw it was not OAR.

Any word from MGM on a new transfer for this great movie?

This is MGM you're talking about.

Posted Image I take it that means no word on an OAR release? For some reason, I thought MGM was doing better with its DVD releases.

FWIW: MGM released it OAR and 16:9 in PAL countries.

Wish they would revisit this as the current transfer is crap!

I thought the first DVD was open-matte when I got it, but my new 16x9 TV proved me wrong. This is a great film and it's shocking MGM hasn't given it the proper treatment.
My Blu-ray collection so far:Casino Royale, The Fifth Element, 300, Unforgiven, T2, The Descent, The Road Warrior, The Untouchables, Purple Rain, Deliverance

If they ever release it in OAR, I'll be one of the first in line!
