The subject says it all.
Come on, I know someone must know if the new Vista release features a new transfer.
We may not know until some advance reviews come in. Sorry.
New transfer or not I'm getting it since my current disc can hardly play, pixelation and pausing everywhere, and I only ever watched the thing twice!
Isn't it going to be a THX approved transfer? That would have to be a new one, right?
I'm not sure what THX's standards on transfer are - I know one thing: sometimes they're not very good.
I never saw the original transfer of Sixth Sense - I heard it was pretty good, but not great.
The first transfer is recent and almost certainly HD. I would seriously doubt that they would pay for another transfer at this time.
THX only approves the raw film to tape transfer in 95% of cases. How it's compressed is up to the studio
it would be stupid if it was nothing but a re-hash of old DVD and they call it "VISTA SERIES". It will be even more unacceptable if they make it a 2 disc set but only to add more language tracks and port the same features to a second disk a la Unbreakable.
Wasn't all of this discussed a long time ago? At any rate, here's the scoop from DVD File's October 24, 2001 update:
DvdShrine.com has a review posted. However, the reviewer never saw the original version so he can't compare the two.
Looks like a good set, though.
Based on screengrabs of the menus, The Vista Series version seems to missing 2 features from the first DVD.
Introduction by M. Night
The Cast Featurette
Also, the DVDShrine.com review doesn't mention these 2 featurettes either.
But this is just based on the facts at hand. I don't have the DVD yet.
I'm fairly disappointed with this release. I was looking forward to a director's commentary. The packaging is first rate, but the extras were deffinitely lacking. I didn't bother to check on the transfer yet.
At this point, Elbert, it's safe to say that Mr. Night doesn't do commentaries and probably never will.
Great to hear, Obi. I always find your reviews right on the money.
By the way, Obi...
Did you happen to notice a lot of edge enhancement on Tombstone?
Is it me or have they gone mental with the LFE in Tron?
My system is ear calibrated with a low rent sub but sounds right to me with most software, but Tron... Bass heads are gonna love it, I guess, but I felt it was too much. This minor quibble aside, I'm ecstatic with the release.
Yes, there is definitely visible edge enhancement in the Tombstone transfer. Is it "a lot"? Well, that depends on what one considers "a lot". It is certainly not the worst I have seen, and it is not noticeable in much of the movie, but when it is visible, it is visible, if you know what I mean.
can someone PLEASE explain what edge enhancement is? I'm just curious as i see it mentioned so many times, and would really like to know.thanks in advance
