    I understand, but I only comment on what is on the disc. This is why we do reviews.

    You will have to contact Criterion and alert them. I actually thought that it was "too obvious" that it was just an upscaled bonus material, which is Criterion's practice for older/vintage bonus material -- they bump everything to 1080l/1080p, regardless of native resolution. Since Disc Six is a 'special features' disc only, I entered the information like I always enter information for bonus features in our reviews.

    I don't have the market copy yet to see what is stated in the leaflet, but when I get it, I will update the review as I always do.

    Thanks again for the note

    Problem is that criterion says it should be an hi-def presentation when it's clearly not. I think a new HD transfer could look alot better then this.

    This is what criterion says on it's webpage

    "High-definition presentation of Game of Death II, the 1981 sequel to Game of Death"

    Hi F,

    Correct, it is an upscale, but I assumed that this was obvious because it is presented only as an archival bonus feature. I should have made this clear

    Hi i suspect that the Criterion Game of Death II release is an upscale and not a true 1080p transfer based on the screenshots posted on this blu-ray.com site and comparing Blu-Ray upscaled transfers that has been released previously. This is really it means Fortune Star has not made any hd-transfer of Game of Death II. Instead they sent a 480p to 1080p upscale.

    Dr. Svet,
    Thank you so much for the reply! I've got the Criterion Box pre ordered. I have to say, I watched my spanish disc of The Mirror Crack'd and thought it looked really good! I'm so looking forward to getting the new Kino discs, and I sincerely hope that Kino will have the video bitrates be as large as they can be to maximize the benefits of the new transfers. You may wish to post your comments/concerns about that on Kino's Insider page on HTF if you are so inclined. I'm so glad Studio Canal has given such TLC to these films. What a step up in quality compared to Thorn Emi's old VHS's! Thanks again, Doc!
