This remake was rumored to come out with the 1935 Version (Clark Gable) which arrives on Blu-ray in Nov.  While the 35 version is better, the 62 version will blow it away on Blu-ray : this was a large format widescreen color film.  Warner already has the HD transfer which was issued on the other High Def format which has disappeared

It is very much a matter of opinion if the first version is better than the remake. When the '62 version came out on HD-DVD, everyone raved about the picture quality. I'd love to have it on BRD. I'm sure others would too.

The DVD of the 1962 Mutiny on the Bounty looks great (got it as part of the Brando box set), so I can imagine this looks stupendous on HD-DVD. It must have sold very poorly for Warners to have waited so long to port it over to Blu-ray.

I own the hddvd and it is exceptional. Fantastic PQ, especially when first released.

That's funny. Did the PQ of the HD-DVD deteriorate over time? I think perhaps you mean the PQ seemed great at the time but wouldn't measure up to current-day standards?

I think it looks great on HD DVD. The only reason I keep an HD DVD player in my setup is for the titles like this (and Grand Prix) which have not yet been released on Blu. Also, I think it is quite a decent film.

It could look even better on Blu depend on how it's encoded. It will certainly sound better with lossless audio and do justice at last to the great score.

Still no word on the tite coming to Blu-ray? Didn't Warner do a HD master when they released this title on the now de-funct HD Disc? Are they still planning to release it or does it require a new master (the other is 4 years old) or will this now become a 50th anniversary release in 2012 ?

I watched the HD DVD about a month back for the first time- it looked sensational.

I'm sure everyone reading here knows what you were trying to say. Best to ignore people when they nit pick you. I would love to see an 8k transfer done, but will settle for whatever comes out on blue. Providing a good review of course. I never buy blind unless its DVD.
