Invasion of the Body Snatchers.

I don't know if Olive is at fault, or just that only a poor quality copy of the film is all that exists, but I was saddened when watching it.

Still better than the old DVD, but that's not much consolation...

Both movies to me look like the same quality of video that would've been on a Sega CD game years ago.
thankfully I rented this title, but yuck the grain/pixelation is beyond bad, it borders on unacceptable.

Off the top of head,my choice would be The Color of Money.
100% agreed! As I was reading the post I thought the same thing and then I had to scroll down some to see the rest and it said The Color of Money! Apersonal favorite and they destroyed this transfer. I remember there was a cover story here about the restoration it was going through and I was excited, Then they release that garbage. As others said, when I read the review, I said it cant be that bad, it was worse. They need a re-release and quick with a replacement plan.

That ain't grain, that's a busted scanner.

I have to disagree with this. I watched it on my old 52 ISF calibrated LCD and it looked just as good as ben-hur/Ten Commandments as far as having a filmic quality look. Further more although I haven't seen it through and through on my new 60" Plasma and scanned several scenes and I see no evidence of digital manipulation what-so-ever.

Of course you're allowed to think whatever you want, but that doesn't make you right. Cleopatra has been digitally manipulated. Is it excessive? I would say no, but it indeed has had some DNR applied and this is not surprising in the slightest as Fox is the worst abuser of DNR after Universal.

FotoKem was the company responsible for doing the 4k scan from existing 65mm elements for Cleopatra. The grain will be very refined. I don't know what you're watching.

He's not implying he directed the movie over the phone, he's talking about directing them on how to color grade the film with verbal instructions.

If it makes you feel any better the DNR is light and varies with some scenes having none at all. I also feel that the colors are slightly over-saturated. Reds, purples, and golds just don't look quite right.

The Total Recall reissue. Way too overhyped and not worth the hassle to upgrade over the previous release

I could not disagree more. The difference in the original MPEG-2 release and the remastered AVC release is seriously night and day.

I'm sorry you feel this way, because the reissue DESTROYS the 1st release.

That much I agree with. It looked far too bright and colour wise many things looked faded. My French Steelbook edition looked better. I'm sticking with that.

It's been a while since I've heard a statement more false than yours...

I'm surprised no one has said 'The Deadly Spawn'
