At the risk of starting this topic a little early, I thought I would ask what other forum members rank as their top 10 favorite 2001 releases (most impressive transfers) as well as 5 major disappointments. I thought this was a monumental year for highly anticipated epic and classic releases. As my list will show, that is my major emphasis. Newer box office releases don't impress me as much as older titles that go through some sort of restoration, though there have been so many outstanding new titles that are reference quality, I'm sure most of you will have them on your list. Of the newer box office releases I chose Planet of the Apes 2001 as the most impressive. I liked this movie more than I thought I would, but was mostly blown away by the quality of the transfer and has now replaced Gladiator as my demo disc. For what it's worth here is my list- 1. Citizen Kane (Warner) 2. Written On The Wind (Criterion) 3. Funny Girl (Columbia) 4. Planet of the Apes 2001 (Fox) 5. Now Voyager (Warner) 6. Marilyn Monroe Diamond Collection (Fox) 8. Rebecca (Criterion) 9. Snow White (Disney) 10.Doctor Zhivago (Warner) Major disappointments- 1. Some like it Hot (MGM) 2. The Apartment (MGM) 3. Notorious (Criterion)- I know I will probably take some heat for this. The film elements used look great, just the transfer looked bad to me. I think it has something to do with the amount of disc space they used for the film and the amount of bonus material they crowded on one disc. Rebecca used 2 discs, they should have done the same for Notorious. I notice that the second half of the film improves in it's video quality, is quite beautiful, the first half suffers though. 4. Funny Face (Paramount) 5. White Christmas (Paramount)-ok this was a late 2000 release but I still haven't got over the disappointment of how bad this looks.
