Is there an anamorphic print of mission impossible #1?
There is NO anamorphic print for Region 1
Get the anamorphic R2 version if your player can handle multiregion and pal.
don't get the r2 version - PAL speed up. never used to bother me, but did an a/b comparison recently, and never, never again will i buy a PAL dvd. it just sounds so wrong! as Michael said, paramount might re-issue when MI3 is released. but then again, they didn't budge an inch when jason X came out. they could've done something with their friday the 13th series, but didn't. so don't get your hopes up.
I'm sure I heard somewhere that a Mission: Impossible special edition was in the works... And as for PAL speed-up, I could barely even notice it in A/B comparisons, so obviously it depends very much on the individual as to whether it is an issue...
If there was one, I would buy it.
And then again, the laserdisc looks pretty good, despite the fact that "laserdisc transfer" is usually a condemnation. Charlie
I'd love an SE of M:I with an anamorphic transfer, maybe DTS, and a good collection of extras.
Hey, it's time for a Special Edition: (anamorphic enhancement): release of MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE. I would buy this one, (and will not buy the current non-anamorphic version).
I know there's an HD master of it, because it airs on HBO Hi-def from time to time and it blows the DVD away!
The 5.1 track on HBo is pretty stellar. It actually sounds better than the 5.1 track on the Laserdisc. I hope this makes it to the DVD because I would be thrilled. DTS would be a nice bonus but I'm not holding my breath with Paramount.
Bought a used copy of MI-1 as a placeholder. Transfer is OK as early DVDs go, line structure isn't too visible and picture stability is fairly good. Not sure how well this would hold up on larger set, but I've seen *much* worse LBX transfers. Would like to get 'Days of Thunder' too, but I think that transfer is not as good...
I was browsing at a video store today and say both Days of Thunder and Mission: Impossible for $10 apiece. I would've purchased them on the spot, but I thought I'd check in here first to see if they were anamorphically enhanced. From the threads I'd searched, Days of Thunder is a crap transfer in addition to being non-anamorphic. I thought for sure M:I would be, but I was mistaken. With the forthcoming release of MI3, I think I'll hold off and see if special editions will be released. As for Days of Thunder, I may just have to get it, since I've heard no news of a re-release.
Does anyone know if the R4 release is anamorphic?
MI:2 was one of a few blind purchases I regretted. MI, though, I have yet to purchase hoping for an anamorphic transfer. Good news to hear that one is in the works.
