    Well, that bottom shot is one of the few shots where the new disc has more vibrant colors. In most shots it's just the opposite - the new disc has faded and washed out colors in many scenes.

    I can now see a big advantage to my being color-blind. [​IMG]

    I guess it's because of my (partial) color-blindness, but the screenshots showing the long shot of the Haddonfield street look just about identical to me (old vs. new). However, I think a lot of people (particularly men) have degrees of difficulty with certain colors (green vs. brown for example). This has always been a problem with me. Certain shadings of green and brown look identical in my skewed orbs. [​IMG]

    Any other color-blind HTFers out there?

    I'm red-green color blind, and the differences are night and day to me.

    I too have a color differential, not sure what colors specifically, but I have issues with certain shades of blue/purple/red green/brown. and those 2 shots do look very similar to me...

    On another note, I went looking for a previously released version of Halloween and all I found was the "Extended edition" with the shots made for TV. Does this version also include all thr original theatrical shots in addition to the new ones? and is this transfer worth grabbing while I still can?

    Well...I guess when watching this new transfer, we could all just pretend in our minds that the summer in 1978 Haddonfield lasted a bit longer than usual, and that the foliage didn't turn very much until AFTER Halloween. [​IMG]

    Alright guys, forget about that shot I posted with the stronger greens for the 2003 DVD! That was just one shot I happened to find, and I mainly posted it to show the greater detail/sharpness. It just happened to have stronger greens as well, but that was one of the few scenes on the 2003 DVD with stronger colors, IMO. [​IMG]

    I'll definitely buy the H25 DVD....however, this will be for the commentary and other supplements. I already have the limited edition and am quite satisfied with the proper colors in the transfer- no way I'm getting rid of that one.

    What type of 2-Disc case is Anchor Bay utilizing for the H-25 version? An Alpha? An Amaray? Neither?

    This is kind of odd ..... DVD Empire has already jacked up the price of H-25 by about two bucks from its $19.49 pre-order price. Curious, seeing as how it's still not streeted as yet. [​IMG]

    I'm confused about the differing (previous) versions.

    Can someone confirm: Is the Limited Edition (2-discer) the exact same transfer as the single-disc 1999 version (which has both WS and FF versions on a one-sided disc)?

    I have to say after reading the review at DVDFILE.COM, I was highly disappointed. I sold my limited edition version expecting something great when this was released. Looks like I acted prematurely and will have to hunt down another LE on ebay.

    Keith,

    You could also just go out to the store and buy the single disc 1999 DVD and then the TV disc as well. Then you would have the exact same contents as the LE.

    Well, looks like the one discer 1999 version for me. I was really looking forward to that new edition, and I can let a little slide, but those shots are outrageous. I have read of another site though that says they aren't that bad from the disc they've seen. I still might buy it, after I hear more. But today it looks like I must hunt down that 1 discer.
