Fortune Star version on the left Shout Factory US blu ray on the right.

 

People on AVS and Blu-Ray forums already have the set and uploaded tons of examples, but yes they are all SD up conversions.

 

This is a bummer.

So much for blu-ray being a quality, premium format. It won't be long before Alpha start putting some product out.

Shouts POLICE STORY I and II BluRay was an upconverted transfer. My DVD looked better. So this is no surprise. 


Death to PG-13! And now death to DVNR too!!

This makes me glad that so many of the Vincent Price films were letterboxed transfers so MGM had to do new transfers to go anamorphic.  Apparently, the transfer of Pit and the Pendulum playing on HD channels is said to be quite good.

Glad I held off on pre-ordering this one. Thanks for the post. Has Shout commented on it?

Shout commented, specifically Cliff MacMillan.

Short answer he told a lie, long answer he tried to shift the blame on Fotokem making things much worse for hi,.

Dealing with MGM (or any other studio) is a lot different than dealing with Fortune Star.

Gee, a lie from SHOUT? That's inconceivable. He said as he watched his "newly remastered" ROUTE 66.

so he's claiming they aren't upscaled? I'm going to hope Mr. Harris or the HTF get a copy for review.
