The selection of these awards begin and end with the HTF membership -- those individuals that know Blu-ray better than anyone else!

Under the heading that there's a lot of crap being peddled as diamonds these days I guess Von Ryan's Express still gets my vote, but if I had to be honest I'd say it's a tie between that film and The Man Who Knew Too Much and Marnie and Family Plot. In Von Ryan's case the color was simply atrocious - purplish gray, bluish blacks, orange flesh, jaundice granite. Yuck! The Man Who Knew Too Much was a more insidious faux pas because on the surface it looked semi-okay until you started to concentrate for a minute or two and realize that color density was quickly going out the window and age related artifacts were still everywhere. Afterward, the sharpness of the image didn't impress so much as it disturbed. After all, if Universal could get the sharpness right, what the heck were they doing about the color?!? I know Goldeneye is raising the ire on message boards everywhere and I must admit it's flawed. But strangely enough I'm not as upset about it as I thought I would be. Perhaps I didn't mind it as much (shame on me) or just don't really love the film enough to care (double shame on me!). Seriously, though, with all the other screw ups to choose from, this one didn't make my top ten golden turkeys for 2012. Let's pigeon hole it a very solid #11. Now I really do need that vodka martini - shaken, because I'm stirred!
