Below in the spoiler tag are 15 examples of what I would consider funny looking faces or objects due to the outer edge distortion they utilized (in some of the shots to achieve the aspect ratio conversion) [of course they used wide angle lenses at close range, so things already looked distorted in the original, but this brings it even further. Too far IMO]

[Show spoiler]
































Here are some direct comparisons to the original version The resolution of the restoration shots should not be taken as accurate. They were taken from an online stream that compresses them heavily, even on 1080p mode, similar to youtube. So it would unfair to assume DNR until we see it in disc format

1.

Original



Restoration stream (cropped out part of the cigarette and hand)


2.

Original BD


Restoration stream (We can see the highlights are desaturated, and the image is stretched)
