I have to imagine the 2006 unaltered DVD transfers will look like complete ass on any modern TV, but every so often I’ll watch movies on my PC at my desk, and if I’m using a highly customizable media software like VLC player where I can finnagle with the aspect ratio and zoom and sharpness and all to my heart’s content, the GOUT makes serviceable viewing.
They were barely acceptable at the time as the major studios were more fully supporting 16:9 by then. And people forget the GOUT transfers are actually the THX Laserdisc masters from 1993! They were never the best transfers of the OT to begin with, with flaws visible even on the 20-inch analog tv I owned at the time.
The only thing worse is some of the deep catalog made on demand titles Fox was releasing as late as 2012 in glorious pan and scan.
