I was going through all my old DVDs recently, checking how well some of the older ones hold up to the current releases transfer and sound wise. After comparing a lot of old ones I realized something...New Line a few years ago put out better product than most other studios have in their entire run. The transfer on the original Blade was mindblowing. Great level of detail, black levels dead on...just a gorgeous transfer...and all the way back from 98. Another one that shocked me was Dark City. Being a single layer release back from Aug 98 I was a little paranoid of the quality. Once again...was shocked to see one of the best transfers I have ever seen, and again on an older New Line release. The black levels in this were amazing, and the Dolby mix was fantastic. I recommend some people go back and take a gander at some of the older new line stuff like these. I was just wanted to test the older discs on my widescreen and got a pleasant surprise. next up is Pleasantville. So a HUGE thank you to New Line for a job well done on even the older releases and the current ones as well. Most studios can learn a thing or two from you.
