This review is from: Giorgio Moroder Presents Metropolis: Special Edition [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
I used to have a friend who let me borrow his Laserdisc copy of Giorgio Moroder's version of Metropolis. I thought that was a better copy than VHS. Moroder's version was never to be found again in print, and I was hoping for a DVD release, Now it's on Blu-ray ! Thank you, thank you!!! I already own the restored black and white version DVD, but Moroder's music score and color tinting, fits with the futuristic ideas of the movie, IMHO. The sound effects are not bad too, like when Freder stumbles into Rotwang's lab. Actually, I saw a screening of Moroder's version first before the classic B&W. I'm happy now that I'll own both versions. Thanks again.

I'm nervous....
Tried to see this this weekend in a movie theater. The Kino logo comes up and the movie starts - with no sound. After a bit I go up to tell the staff that if they're going to show this without the sound, I want my money back. Guy out front says that the "projectionist" is trying to fix it. I go back into the theater and wait next to the projection booth and can hear her talking to (I assume) the owner on what to do with it. As part of the conversation she tells the person on the phone that "It's the Blu-Ray". A movie theater projecting a film from a Blu-Ray disc?
Thing is, I'm looking at the picture and it's not the best I've ever seen. It's washed out and parts of the picture are dirty - scratches and marks that aren't on the film in the same places on my VHS copy. If this were on an actual film stock copy of the film, I could understand that Kino wouldn't spend the money to clean it up. But if this was projected from a Blu-Ray copy that Kino provided...and that's the same copy they're going to be selling...?
I'm VERY nervous. And surprised. Kino putting out a film in that condition?
Can anyone out there reassure me?

Mr. Ed says:
I admit it's a little disappointing when we have available technology to clean up old movies (example is the excellent James Bond reissues with newer looking restoration and dts sound) and they didn't take the time to use it for this release. But, I'm still happy to have the Moroder version, maybe a cleanup in the future.
