Love this film as well and can’t fathom why there isn’t a Bluray yet. The AMZN WEB-DL (much better than the low bitrate iTunes) is the best version available for this at present as far as I am aware, Sky Movies nowadays is not the best picture quality. I used to have a high bitrate Sky HD cap from around 2006/7 when they used to have 18mbps constant bitrate which I unfortunately lost in a hard drive crash and is way past retention on Usenet which I’d love to get ahold of again. Saying that, from what I remember I think the AMZN one beats it as Sky even then slightly filtered there output for compression reasons. I used to be able to capture Sky HD directly using PC Sat card (only UK Freesat HD at present) and now only can capture through hdmi capture card from Sat Box.

Would love to have that PM as well Dark Jedi in case you have info re a better version. Would be much appreciated.
