The movie was shot on extremely grainy high speed stock and the transfer is a good 13 years old at this point (from IP materials) so all that considered I think the untouched master looks really nice for what it is. No-one should be touting it as the greatest thing evar, but for me it's a HUGE step up from the nasty-assed Blu-ray.

To the former the Bluray will look better, and to the latter the other one.
DVD : The link I was referring to is clearly labeled : “Bluray vs. HDTV”.

Filmmusic : You’re totally right about that second image, pardner, the DE BD looks very, very waxy. I was “on the fly” at the time and totally bypassed the second link.

The thing is, all I have is the BD set and I enjoyed it when I last watched it. I’m not gonna watch it on TV and I don’t hunt down files and try to “make my own” BDs, so it’s all moot to me. I find these discussions to be more meaningful when it’s a comparison of existing BDs. For example, many find the new 20th Anniversary Apollo 13 release to be light years better than the 15th Anniversary version. I wasn’t convinced by the caps (yes, I know, sacrilege) - and screen-size apparently comes into play - but I’m price-watching and eventually I’ll get it and know firsthand - on my screen. With BTTF, all I can do is hope for a remaster/new transfer/whatever.
Cop : Just let me handle the questioning, okay? I mean, it’s what I do for a living. There’s gotta be a method to it. It’s psychology. You get him
to lower his guard - one sentence at a time, build a rhythm. It’s a lot like music.
Killer : Break his ****in’ legs, he’ll give ya a Who concert.

You can only have too much ammo if you're on fire or swimming.
