It surprised me that Coppola didn’t record new commentaries for the restored versions, as I would’ve loved to hear him reflecting in the context of the films receiving an overhaul. I own the Blu-ray, the 1997 W/S VHS releases and the P&S chronological Trilogy VHS. Out of curiosity, what did you think of the look of the Saga and EPIC broadcasts by AMC and HBO in recent years? Again, the issue wasn’t with the Restoration’s transfer but the colours that were imposed by Gordon Willis. 😃

Here’s another addition to the list that’s so obvious that it’s easy to forget.

After Ellison threatened legal action, subsequent prints of The Terminator have since carried, “Acknowledgement to the works of Harlan Ellison” during the end credits.

Allegedly some early video copies don’t have that credit, as Harlan bought The Terminator on LD and was perturbed it wasn’t there. At least that’s what I read somewhere many years ago.
