It's funny, back before I knew what DNR was I thought Basic Instinct was one of the best-looking discs in my collection. Thanks to these forums over the years I've received a first class education in what film restoration actually should look like
I'm actually a tad bit concerned about this not being up to snuff. Hopefully Studiocanal's love affair with DNR isn't as serious as it was back in the early days of DVD. I don't have a whole lot of Studiocanal discs in my collection but I do know that their restoration work can and has been inconsistent. This one's a biggie so I hope it gets a great scan this time.
Studio Canal's "restorations" used to be more miss than hit, but they've been doing a lot better the last few years.
