As artwork goes, I find it to be very life-like.Is it just me or does the cover art look cheap?
I'm pre-ordering this, but I wish Olive Films would get their act together. There is no mention of this on their website, nothing on their twitter feed. It's like they have given up on advertising their products anymore. I have no idea what extras may be on this.
Johnny Guitar is in an entirely different aspect ratio and a new 4k scan.I believe for every single one of these "Signature" things they're using their same masters and tweaking them. I have found everyone of 'em totally unnecessary and disappointing.
A 4K TRANSFER of their existing master, I believe for High Noon. Johnny Guitar - was the 4K scan off their existing master and they just fixed the aspect ratio?Johnny Guitar is in an entirely different aspect ratio and a new 4k scan.
High Noon was a new 4k remaster that is reviewed as markedly improved (I’ve only seen the new one). Can’t speak to any of the others.
Is the transfer of the main event noticeably different from the existing Olive edition?I upgraded a few months ago with the EUREKA version. The main difference with this new version seems to be mainly the featuture-length audio commentary. As for the most interesting bonus; the visual essay by Tag Gallagher, it is bound to be the same.
It will be probably worth upgrading if you don't already owned the European version.
I don't Upgrade Bluray movies for the Bonus Features. PQ Restoration or 4K Restoration Yes. This one I will Pass. The Eureka release is Darker I noticed on internet. The Olive original is Brighter and Excellent PQ.The europeean transfer is not that much different from the existing Olive edition, and I would not be surprise if Olive go with their existing transfer which were not bad, so unless Olive improve significally their transfert, the only reason to upgrade would be for the bonus features.
