    I was wondering if anyone had compared the pq of the old dual layered widescreen only disc with the new single layer widescreen/p&s disc. I would think that the quality would have to suffer, but I wanted to get your opinion on it before I bought the new DVD. Thanks in advance.
  2. OK, I'm getting little concerned...

    The early-2001 release appears to have been dual-layer and WS only.

    I'm fairly sure the 2002 re-issue is also dual-layered, but the FS transfer is no doubt taking up a layer.

    I'm kinda shocked by this, because most studios typically re-issue better movies in WS-only and spread the old/new transfer over both layers.

    I'm thinking of Twister SE or Fugitive SE re-issues from Warner.

    Fox's approach seems fairly wrong-headed, even for 2002.

    I have plenty of single-layer WS transfers that look very good, but you wonder what could have been.

    My copy is unwatched but was opened on Valentine's Day, I'm stuck.

    the review's wrong. 2001 WS release is dual layered. video takes up 6.75Gb. and the disc is gold (common for dual layers back then)

    they could have kept the same widescreen transfer, and bolted on a really crappy looking, overly compressed FS one. now that would be sweet justice.
