    I just wonder if it has decent picture quality. I have the R0 Japanese release and it is definitely bad. Not even LD quality. Anyone pick this one up who can give feedback?

    I am hesitant to buy the R2 Magnificent Ambersons Universal release. It does not seem that they have done any restoration or have included any special features. At least, it's not not mentioned anywhere. It looks very similar to their Double Indemnity release - unrestored, without commentary, with 0 special features. Now the Double Indentity SE is going to be released in R1 in August with commentaries, special features, etc. So the R2 Double Indemnity is pretty much a waste. I have a far from perfect Spanish edition of the Magnificent Ambersons and will be waiting for its proper release (restored, maybe re-edited, with commentaries and special features) - whenever it happens to be.

    I take it you plan on getting it. If so, please comment on the image quality.
