Revionist audio and video is for the cheap seats
Physical media Fo lyfe.
The Scott Bros. do no wrong.
Dolby Vision is a company grasping at relevance.
Bring back and refine SXRD displays.

I know you won't reply to this mike but, funnily enough, that was one of the things I concentrated on when looking for trails, and I didn't see anything amiss.

Once again... give any release time, no matter how celebrated it is, and people will start calling it out.

I don't know how perfect the release has to be, but this is my favorite movie and I've seen it more than any other and I'm still in love with this disc. I'll take Spielberg's sign-off as the best resource on how this should look. There's definitely a distinction between the blu and the negative, but I'm fine with it.

Incase this is of interest to anyone, this is a video I did for a discussion on originaltrilogy.com about two or three months ago where I point that even various versions of the films original mono had some differences. It's about 20 minutes long so headsup.

Watched it on the 4th as well. So freaking entertaining, quite possibly the most rewatchable movie I own. And yeah, it does look and sound really nice. In cases like this I am SO thankful the BR format came along. A classic that has been around virtually my entire life looking and sounding better than I ever dreamed I would see.

The shot of Hendricks dropping to the sand dune,wiping saliva away from his mouth after discovering Chrissie's remains,looks strange;like the warm colour temperature was turned up too high?

The color is a bit different from how it looked originally. Not a huge difference but it can be noticeable. I believe Universal said there was inconsistencies with the reference prints so I think they just decided to replicate the look of the 30th anniversary DVD.

That same shot of Hendricks on the 30th anniversary DVD looks normal compared to the Blu-Ray equivalent.
Something else that bothered me about this restoration.Spielberg's stance on not digitally tampering with his films.Why is the wire/fishing line that was originally attached to the bouy during Chrissie's attack still missing?
This 'restoration' should have included a lossless version of the original mono audio too.

I mentioned the wire a few pages back. A sailboat on the horizon later in the film was also removed. Spielberg mentioned in 2011 there would be no more alterations to his films even going as far to say he would not remove the wires from 1941. So it is a bit strange these minor tweaks were done. Granted theyre not big changes and arent distracting but it does strike me as puzzling considering what Spielberg said.

That shot looks like a dupe or an optical to me, that can have the effect of sending the colour a little screwy.

Oh, just remembered, I wanna say that I adored Bill Butler's classic three-point compositions in this flick. Yeah, people still shoot in anamorphic these days but it's just not the same, it's as if framing for widescreen has become a lost art. I blame that Super 35!

What impressed me were the long unbroken camera takes with dialogue for the actors.For example:Brody,the Mayor,coroner and Meadows on the ferry.I imagine every time an actor would flub their lines they would have to turn back the ferry and start the shot again from when the Mayor's Cadillac boarded.The filming of that scene must have been frustrating.The film was very well rehearsed.Thank god that shark didn't work and Spielberg and his actors had more time to work on their dialogue and scenes.

Nailed it!

I have also noticed since the use of Super35 became more widespread, the 'scope compositions in films steadily became less and less interesting and/or artful.

With so many theaters no longer masking the screens for 'scope presentations (thusly cutting down the size and resolution), I wonder why so many movies are still released in 2.39:1 at all.

Heh, good point about the lack of 'scope masking in the average modern multiplex (my last two nearest ones didn't/don't bother), now you even get black bars in cinema presentations. It's no wonder Tarantino essentially thinks of modern theatrical projection as being a "TV" level experience.
