In my opinion the 1999 DVD releases of The Stanley Kubrick Collection are the best versions of the films to date. They were all taken from earlier home video transfers with the exception of EWS. This means that they would most likely have more accurate color timing and the original mono mixes of the films. A large amount of the films are presented in 4:3 as they were shot open matte. However after attempts at upscaling them with suboptimal results, I decided to find HD versions. While there are 4:3 versions in HD of The Shining and FMJ, they are both from the BD masters which have altered sound mixes and color timing. I am looking for HDTV or SDTV rips of either the 1999 or 2001 versions as the 2001 version is also very close to the original. Any help would be appreciated.
