Well once again a Blu-Ray for HALLOWEEN has been released that is causing controversy. First of all, it is indisputable that the mono mix is just a downmix of the remix. It is NOT the original audio.
Just as bad is the color timing, which, while better than the prior BluRay, is nothing like the 1999 THX DVD that had color timing giving the film a Fall appearance. The two BD’s do not look like fall at all and Dean Cundy and John Carpenter both supervised and approved the 1999 telecine.
I’m not saying that version is right. I am saying it feels more true to a story set on Halloween.
So I am thinking that this may be film I have to ‘rescue’ but color timing is difficult. VERY difficult when dealing with 4:2:0 H.264 video. I’m curious is anyone else feels as annoyed as I do…?
