Each of these cartoons have been digitally remastered from original 35mm material and digitally restored to their original brilliance.

The Matrix LD vs DVD

…and the color grading of BOTH is completely different to the original 35mm…
so save your money and forget the mess cause this is precisely one of the cases
where te DVD and the LD received altered transfers (some say the producers wanted it that way for the DVD)

Stereo Remix from the early-90s
I’m curious what they’ll do about the audio mix.
I’ve caught a print of this once and it was a stereo remix from the early-90s that sounded too good, if that makes sense. I appreciate good audio, but it’s distracting to see older pre-Dolby films futzed like this.

Incredibly Grainy 😃
Once Upon a Time in the West, like many of Leone’s westerns, was shot in 2-perf Techniscope. This is inherently an incredibly grainy format that looks really bad for home video – a postage-stamp-sized frame roughly the same height as 16mm. It looked even worse in the theater, because of the optical blow-ups and anamorphic conversion involved. It’s never gonna be super-sharp, because the frame size is so small, plus it’s a 45-year-old movie.

Once Upon Time In The West had a showing on French television a few weeks ago in a gorgeous HD print with the best colour I’ve seen, far superior to the Blu Ray release we currently have available.

I read the so called “new” release is the same as the last one so maybe French tv got theirs from another source. Certainly better from the colour pov and of course it was the full length French release.

Saw it in October in a cinema in Toulouse, great to see again on a huge screen, and the print was the same as the Blu Ray, so in many ways the tv broadcast was a revelation!

Currently watching the broadcast on French television , the best transfer I’ve seen, sharp focus, gorgeous colour palette, rich and varied. A real treat.

I watched it on GRIT TV yesterday, and the color was amazing.

The 6-track presentations, where known, are identified in the listing below with an asterisk.
