    Hello Anthony,

    First, thank you for the kind note.

    You have very good eyes. Yes, the new transfer definitely has more grain, which is also far better exposed. It could have been better resolved with stronger encoding, or at least some optimizations, but the new release still represents a massive upgrade in quality over the old release. The 4K scan is outstanding.

    Anthony, some of the "softness" that you see is a byproduct of the original photography. It is not produced by digital anomalies (I am unsure if this is what you think). Density also fluctuates a bit, but this is how film is sometimes -- somewhat uneven and "softer" in places. Format, camera work, lighting... there is a lot that can affect the final appearance of the film.

    Thank you for uploading your review, Anthony. I hope you enjoy the disc.

    Thankyou for your review of Highlander 30th Anniversary Edition. I read your review with great interest especially the section on the the visual quality.
    I was wondering if you thought the transfer had more grain in it than the old immortal editon? I thought it did but then my tv isn't professionally calibrated. Did you think Some scenes were also soft in places. Also when Connor is stabbed on the battlefield by Kurgan and is lying on the ground and then it pans out to the eyeball did you think that scenes quality looked worse than VHS? I thought overall the new transfer was a big improvement. I'm the one who has uploaded the first user review on the disc.
    Thankyou, keep up the great work,
