I did three different searches for this but couldn't find anything I'm not sure if "remastered" is the correct word for redoing a movie so it looks better but after reading several comments on this film's image quality (at imdb.com for example) I keep holding off on buying it. This film is a big favorite of mine as far as its story is concerned, but I also enjoy its beautiful images and special effects too (I've owned it on VHS for five years now). I was reading the paper box this dvd is sold in and the copyright for all the materials/photography of that box is 1997. That's also when the movie debuted. Didn't the dvd format itself also debut in 1997? If so, I'm not surprised at those comments I read. Any thoughts on this would be appreciated.
