I did a search, but could find nothing specific. How is the transfer?
The disc has a very nice anamorphically enhanced transfer. Not quite reference quality due to slightly inconsistent black level and skin tones, but still very good.
Its a good transfer. I'd have to give it a B+
I believe the transfer for Goldeneye dates all the way back to the 1997 DVD that came out in a snapper case, and had little or no extras. It also included a pan & scan version of the movie. The transfer was definitely IMO one of the better ones that were found on the earliest DVDs. That being said, I would buy a future DVD with remastered video.
I picked up the SE last night for $12, and was planning on watching it tonight with my boys. Thanks for the feedback.
A good transfer and quality audio!
One shot was re-framed to hide a boom mike dropping down into the picture (when Bond says "The writing's on the wall").
Warning, the LFE on this disc is +10db too high.
I just watched it 2 days ago and noticed that the transfer was a bit soft overall, but it's still very good. B+
My laserdisc of GoldenEye looks and sounds great...
We watched it last night. I would have to give it a B+ as well. Pixilization (sp?) was evident in a few too many scenes.
Have to agree about the soft image. It just doesn't cut the mustard when put up against today's transfers - but then again, none of the Bond dvds look particularly good. TWINE is perhaps the best overall for pq, but the english 5.1 mix on the dvd sounds very compressed (on both the R1 and R2), so we can't have a good picture AND good sound on the Bond dvds. That would be too much for MGM to manage, I think.
The transfer on the R1 GoldenEye SE has always bugged me, so I think the time is right to replace it with the R4 version. Ditto for Licence to Kill - the R4 has had 'corrected' audio since day one.
Dts track on the Laserdisc is Outstanding definately Reference!
As someone already mentioned above, the bass on the Goldeneye disc (and Tomorrow Never Dies as well) is extremely overcooked. I found the audio on the verge of unlistenable.
All the explosions etc. sound the exact same almost. Same exact bass. It gets real annoying real quick.
Anyone heard the Licence to Kill:SE track? I found the music to be mixed quite overpoweringly.
The soundtrack was always bright for Goldeneye.
Anybody directly compare the new Goldeneye with the old one? It seems that they are the same transfer, but with out the pan and scan transfer inlcuded I would hope the new one would be at least a little better.
