I remember these films most fondly with the 2002 sets, when I went to watch the '09 Wrath of Khan Blu-ray, something was seriously off-putting about it, it wasn’t what I remembered enjoying so much. I expect the others would recieve the same reaction.
I remember reading several different people’s comments saying that the '09 color-timing was actually closer to what they remembered seeing on the 35mm prints. The '09 is probably still too blue but the '02 also looks too red. 2016 is the goldilocks edition.
Wait, is the 2016 too gold? I thought it hit the mark perfectly, but then again, I never really noticed anything wrong with the Raiders bluray until this place pointed it out (which I’m still totally fine with…)
What suspiciouscoffee said. I simply meant that it was “just right.”
But what’s weird is that I was literally going to bring up the Raiders blu-ray earlier in the thread! It’s another good example of a movie from the early 80’s we can’t confidently know the original theatrical color-timing of. Some people said it was closer to the ld, others thought the WoWoW broadcast nailed it.
