Much more than the money involved, the greatest cost of the French steelbook for me was adding Destroyer to my Blu-ray collection, ha ha.

There was some speculation back then that these might be corrected discs.
Somehow I doubt it, but perhaps someone can confirm.

Is the U.K. BD of Destroyer definitely 100% uncut and does it use the Universal transfer?
Normal is boring

The Australian disc for Conan the Barbarian contains the extended international cut with English mono and correct night filter for the dog attack scene. However the night filter ends prematurely as the sun can be seen shining into the entrance of the cave during the shot of him falling down the stairs then looking around for a minute. I believe that the light should be bluish moonlight, yet in this "fixed" edition, it's clearly the sun.

Just going over the village attack scene comparing the 5.1 to the mono, and OMG the mono is VASTLY superior. It totally changes the power of this part of the movie. Which reminds me of how the DVD left me wondering why the scene had lost its POWER when I watched it years ago. I couldn't figure out how a scene I had once thought was amazing now seemed so drained of power.

Interesting, I did notice this myself, but had been preoccupied with an audio issue on the 5.1 mix in the same scene and it distracted me from that (the audio issue is how they over amplified Conan's breathing in the mix - it sounded weird).

I thought maybe it had been a flaw in the original image. But now that I think about it you are probably right. Interested to see if this issue is duplicated on the French and corrected UK disks?

Comparing the mono to the 5.1 on the groups assault on Thulsa Doom's pleasure temple and again the difference is astounding. Mono is far superior here too.

OK EVERYTHING is superior on the mono. The opening "that which does not kill you..." drums, the wizards intro... everything.

Also comparing it to the DVD and WOW what a massive PQ improvement!

Sure it is an older transfer but there is some amazing detail and nice depth on display here.
