That wasn’t a comment on a typo.

JEDIT: Wait a minute, that’s the dumb-ass anti-vaccination doc. What the hell are you even talking about?

It must be slang related to online piracy.

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly is a bit of a mess. The colors are bad, it’s DNRed to hell, and it only features the extended version of the movie with scenes not included in the original theatrical release. Currently, the best way to watch the movie (if you don’t speak Italian) is to watch the International Cut restoration that’s on BT and MySpleen.

But the worst major release from a studio aside from poor elements or a smaller label having lack of money or care…is Universals Family Plot. Holy **** you can obviously tell they did not care about their Hitchcock stable and still do not. What an atrocious mangling of the Master’s final work. The DVD is better in every single possible way.

That one wasn’t great, but it didn’t seem THAT bad. Predator Ultimate Hunter edition… YUCK!!!

So has anybody mentioned Moontrap from 1989 with Walter Koenig and Bruce Campbell?

Good LORD. That’s the worst Blu-ray transfer ever right there. Terrible picture quality dipping into VHS at times with pale blacks and no detail (which would be bad enough it weren’t cropped from 4:3 to 16:9… and it is). And unlike some of Anchor Bay’s output, this release doesn’t even have the courtesy of giving us a decent audio track to make up for the picture quality. Its audio track poorly defined with muddled music, sound effects and speech.

Wowsers!! That one doesn’t look very good, but it seems the fingers point more to company that Olive licenced it from (Olive hardly does any remastering work on titles they get, just take the studio 1080p files they receive and plop 'em onto Blu), as they took a Laserdisc master (made from a worn 16mm print) and applied a crop job plus DNR.

Sleepy Hollow. The DVD was bad enough but all the, many and varied, flaws are even more noticeable in the blu. Add to that the fact that there’s no special features at all (not even the flippin’ commentary!) and you’ve got yourself a truly terrifying home entertainment experience.

The Color of Money. I finally watched it last week (I knew that the Blu reviews weren’t particularly positive, but it was another Scorsese picture for me to discover), and to me it really looks terrible.

It nearly put me off at the beginning of the movie, but I must admit that I more or less forgot about the PQ as it went on because the story was IMO compelling enough (I actually really enjoyed it) not to think too much about its bad DVD-like quality.

That film somehow looks bad on all formats: LD DVD and BD.
In other words the mouse doesn’t care one iota about it.

Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here?
And say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

Justice League Animated Series: no upscalling at all, it looks like an online rip.

I can answer almost all questions anyone might have about the Sith from Star Wars Legends, and please do PM me for the bd25 DEED(Despecalised Editions), as I have this version, though I can’t answer technical questions about them.
