PM me for the links, contributing/long term members only please. The photos below of the menu aren’t great as the only way I could get them is from my phone while the disc is playing, software players disabled the screenshot function.

That looks great. Is it really 1.85:1? The Japanese Blu-ray (what this is clearly based on) is 1.78:1. I noticed that the hospital scenes in particular had ragged/wobbly top/bottom edges, and trimming it to 1.85:1 would fix that.

Also, wasn’t there a mono mix from Laserdisc floating around?
