Thanks for this thread, I’d definitely be interested in having a more faithful representation of the movie. I guess “faithfulness” works on several levels as also the version from 1997 is way more authentic in regard to the original story and in my opinion way better than the toned down and almost comedy-like Kubrick version.
I suppose you’re talking about the DVD versus the German Blu-ray, right? As far as I am aware, it’s the only official HD release so far. While overall it is definitely a decent upgrade, not only is the color grading different but also the contrast has been boosted a bit:
Would be interesting to see a HDTV rip if it has been ever shown on TV.
