Disclaimer: this project is, as announced, about color regrading the BD using the 1999 THX DVD as color reference. And this is what I'm doing - actually, it's almost done, waiting only for extra soundtrack.
If there is some interest into the BD ColourMatch'ed using the Criterion Laserdisc, I could always start a new project...
And I love Criterion as company; they did always excellent jobs - I'm taliking about their laserdiscs only; if there are some release less than perfect, it's understandable and forgivable - think about all the other companies, and I think you will agree with me.
But Halloween Criterion Laserdisc, color wise, has some potential; the contrast boosting is not the only feature; infact there are many interesting scenes with vivid colors and correct contrast and/or brightness, quite different from the BD and/or the DVD; if they have the *right* colors will bring to another discussion that I'd like to not conduct here, to not derail the thread... (^^,) so I invite to continue the eventual futher comments about the Halloween Criterion laserdisc into the appropriate thread about wrong color grading.
