At that price. Pass. When it gets down to the $30's then I may pick it up? Just hit Amazon. $34.99. Time to pick it up!

It’s in the $30’s now! Todd’s review, like ALL reviews, simply lists the MSRP.

Thanks for the review, Todd. I’m a fan so will be adding this to my collection.’

I am honestly surprised to hear such glowing remarks about the video quality of this release. ( Not doubting the review, just surprised. :) )

I believe I've owned a release of this film in every applicable home video format and there has never been a release that was completely satisfying from a video perspective. Still not UHD capable, so I have to just put this on the wish list. One of these days.

Hey, you could always try what I've done. I bought an inexpensive 4K player that's hooked up to my 1080p TV. You can buy combo sets for future-proofing, and view the 4K disc to be sure it's good.
