    I'd like to read a review of the new ANIMORPHIC Baraka disc that's out on the 25th.
    I know the previous version had a bad transfer and I really hope it's been corrected with this new release.
    Anyone...comments?

    First impression is that transfer is excellent. This is based upon chapter scan rather than full watch. I think they did it right this time.

    Gord, I was just about to pose the same question when I saw your thread. I watched the original release again last week. Baraka certainly deserved better than it got in the original release!
    So, how good is good for the new release? Roger, are there any other current releases with comparable image quality?

    It doesn't look like I'll even be able to buy this in Canada tomorrow. No Canadian websites have it listed, and the store I normally buy from (A&B Sound) doesn't have it in their computers.
    Bummer!
    Roger, if you get a chance can you compare the old release with the new one, or just let us know what the new release has?
