http://www.genreonline.net/Casablanca_SE_DVD.html Looks like we're in for a treat.
It's been said before in other threads, but it's really great to see a studio give such attention to a classic catalog title, especially a rerelease. I was already planning on buying Casablanca again, but now I'm even more excited.
Also a very complimentary review at DVD Town. I have it preordered. Can't wait.
Great! A must-buy, in my opinion. Man, so much great DVDs on August 5th! Here another review: http://dvdauthority.com/Reviews.asp?ReviewID=3383 Gordy
Great, I wasn't planning to get this 'cos I don't like the film, but what the hell, might as well add it to my collection
I can't wait for this movie. Already sold my former release so I just have to figure uot which store will have the best price.
Thanks to all posting links to reviews! Very much appreciated. I can't wait to get my hands on this disc.
Just listed my old MGM keepcase release on Amazon. "RARE OOP EDITION!"
It WILL be mine!
I guess I'd like to see more comparisons of the video/sound quality between this release and the previous one. I'm not all that big on extras, and my wife doesn't really care that much for the movie (I know, "stone the heretic" :b ), so I doubt if I'll upgrade unless the presentation of the film is significantly improved. I'm pretty happy with the disc I've got now, but I can be convinced...
I know that the original disc got rave quality reviews when it first came out, but I've found many transfer problems with it upon recent critical viewing. I guess many "original" DVDs were so good in comparison with VHS that we all thought they were near perfect - but...as time goes by....we have seen knockout recent DVDs that are of much higher picture quality. So yes, I'm interested in the new transfer with its promised higher quality transfer.
from the dvdauthority review:
Piper Lorre?! "You must help me Rick! They're all gonna laugh at you!!!!"
No, Piper Lorre was the daughter of Piper Sr. and Peter!
thanks for the link to the reviews
Nice to see that they'll include chapter stops on the 83-minute documentary! I *hate* when they don't do that.
Another "back of the box listing" review from Genre Online. Thanks for providing links to real reviews. I'm still debating whether to upgrade.
I want this now!
Did anyone read or hear about any direct comparisons between how the two transfers actually look when you compare them back-to-back? I mean, how much of an improvement visually is the new Casablanca?
Mike. This is discussed in some of the reviews. Check the links above.
