    For those who decided to pick it up:
    Me: The Mr. PINK cover.
    No particular reason, I guess I just thought that, as a character, he was the most professional. [​IMG]
    Also, I'm not sure, but I think the Mr. White cover might not be available in Canada.

    What do you guys think of the transfer????

    I am still undecided on purchasing this disc due to the negative reviews regarding the video quality. I love this movie though!

    If I buy a copy, I will probably go with Mr. Pink, or, possibily, Mr. Brown.

    ...and I've never seen the original DVD transfer so I can't compare.

    So, how many of you bought the Brown one because it had QT's signature on it?
    That went through my mind for a tick.

    Me! To be honest, I didn't like any of the covers. I just bought the Mr. Brown because it was "limited". The also don't even advertise the Brown cover.

    Since the various covers are slipsleeves, Mr. Brown will probably get stored away , and I will leave the keepcase (which doesn't look so bad) on my shelf.

    None, same reason as Rob said. I've heard the transfer is horrible; washed out and all.

    Comments?

    Mr. Brown because it was limited

    I thought the transfer was fine. There was a greenish hue in the warehouse, but not exaggerated like in Amelie. Don't have the first Dogs so I can't compare.

    Mr. Orange 'cause "he's supercool". Hopefully, the disc will arive from Amazon today (did I just jinx it?) I must say I am relieved to hear so many people say the transfer isn't as bad as originally stated. Of course, since I held off on buying the film-only DVD (knowing the spec ed was inevitable), all I have to compare the new disc to is my pan-and-scan VHS.

    Not to be a pisser, but I'll buy Mr. White when the packaging says "corrected transfer, version 2.0".

    By the way, Mr. Pink does live. He's arrested outside of the wharehouse.

    Mr Orange
    Re: The transfer
    I watched this last night and the best way to describe it is like watching the film with sunglasses on. I didn't much notice the reported green tinge with the indoor scenes but the outdoor scenes in direct sunlight are very washed out (hence my sunglasses comparison). [​IMG]
    Re: The Extra's
    I was up until 2am going through the bonus material and it is fantastic. Some of the most interesting extras ever put on a SE. [​IMG]
