I've never understood why studios often use sub-standard logos, credits, etc., at the start of a "restored" or "remastered" film. I feel like I see this quite often. I guess they don't want to spend the extra money to restore or clean up the credits, but it creates a bad initial impression of the film. The film usually looks great once you get past the opening.

It would be too complicated and expensive. They'd have to either recomposite the original optical elements, if they still exist, or recreate them digitally.

I watched Shawshank Redemption during a flight back home back in July so I'm not in a hurry to revisit the film just yet but I suspect if I pop this in (my copy arrived today) I may end up watching the whole film again after all :) This is a true gem
