With the two films totaling almost 6 hours plus so many supplementary extras, does the picture quality suffer from excessive compression? Could someone comment on what this transfer looks like? Going by the low asking price, the screwed-up aspect ratios, I'm not very optimistic.
Thanks for the feedback Rupe. Just read the review. I already have the previous editions so I think I'll wait till it re-emerges in HD and Storaro can't use his lame excuse for panning-&-scanning it to 2.0:1 (it is a P&S and not a simple crop). Actually Storaro's reasoning sounds to me like just a more sophisticated version of the old P&S-to-fullscreen argument. Only this time he's decided to P&S it to 2.0:1 instead of all the way down to 1.33:1. Anyway, the HD version will come round soon enough.
