I would encourage everyone to reserve judgement until calibrated color sources are available, and not be led by preconceptions of what we believe the colors should be.
Absolutely! Whatever people believe the colours to be, or whatever people’s preferences, a SW project timed to these cut frames will, at the very least, be a 99.9% accurate interpretation of a Tech print. Maybe not all the Tech prints that were produced, but one of them. Regardless of whether you like the look, that’s still a first. Pixel-averaging, toning down the yellow or green, or re-correcting entirely can all be done at a later date.
of course it’s a contentious issue because everyone wants to see the film at its best, or the way they remember it. But I’m personally very glad Dre’s going about it scientifically first.
