I've just finished watching To Have and Have Not and it's another winner from WAC.

It may have taken a while for WAC to get up to speed on releasing Blu-rays but 2016 has been a tremendous year. The sheer quality of their releases has been mind-blowing.

I think Blade Runner (any cut) deserves a better transfer than the current one in circulation which never maxes out the potential bitrate of the format. Labels like Criterion & Arrow had been known to max out a lot of their titles despite the fact some of those don't really need that extra headroom. I wish/hope Warner would treat that movie with a little bit more quality in video rather than gimmicky toys, special editions and unnecessary cut/re-cut re-packaging merry-go-round.

Seriously? The Blu Ray has damn near perfect PQ. I have a very hard time believing it could look any better.

It could look a lot better. It has good colour and contrast but the image is soft and the (VC-1) encoding is pretty average, especially on The Final Cut.

You mean, it has revisionist color and the image is as sharp as it's going to get. Not every movie looks like a video game upon remaster.

Given the film was shot on early-80s film stock, I think it will always look a bit soft. But I have no complaints about the BD transfer. I've always thought it looks beautiful.

I saw the remastered 4K version on a huge screen at the cinema and it looked a lot like the current Blu-ray transfer.
Hands off the compression button, Music Industry!
Hands off the DNR button, Blu-Ray producers!
Films are supposed to have grain!

Not many folks here to excited for The Deadly Trackers. It seems to have gotten a sub par review here too, a first this year for the archive I think. Glad it was on a title that I was not looking forward to.

Man, Michael Reuben took a giant shit on "Deadly Trackers". It's a title that tempted me because of the cast (Harris, Taylor, Al Lettieri, Neville Brand, Paul Benjamin), but the consensus seems to be that it's a pretty awful film.
Top 10 Most Wanted on Blu-Ray: 1) After Hours 2) Bringing Out the Dead 3) Bob Roberts 4) O Lucky Man 5) California Split 6) The Music of Chance 7) The Limey 8) Brewster McCloud 9) The Hitcher (1986) 10) Straight Time

Yeah, I always laugh when I see "despite solid video and great audio it is a terrible blu-ray"...like really?

Yeah, the low rating is solely due to his low opinion of the film. Frankly, who cares what these reviewers think of the film? Most people on this site are fairly savvy when it comes to what we like or don't like, so if you're interested and the audio / video ratings are solid, buy it.

Too many people these days seem to need validation for what movies they should enjoy instead of just going about their lives simply enjoying them.

The film received it's share of negative reviews when it opened, and didn't do much business at the box office, disappearing pretty quickly. So this is one film you may want to view before buying

As someone who very rarely blind buys I would recommend that for any movie.

I'm wondering if I should cancel my amazon preorder and buy it from WAC
I ordered both seasons from Family Video last Friday and received them yesterday. Cheaper than Amazon and the WB shop price, too.
