    Let's hope that 55 Days at Peking will be next on the list

    Just checked out the DVD Beaver site. From the comparison frames, it looks to me like we're in for another disappointment from the Weinsteins: odd color balance and lack of detail – similar to El Cid. On the other hand, they did get the aspect ratio right. It's the same as the original anamorphic 35mm theatrical prints.

    I don´t get this. The FOTRE frames on the FOTRE HTF thread look fantastic. The frames on DVDBeaver look just as middling as El Cid on DVDBeaver. Anybody care to comment/investigate? And does each frame grab represent the movie correctly or do they represent the capper´s preferences re: contrast, brightness, color saturation and hue?
