Default Great article on restoration

Now that the dust has cleared and we will be seeing lots of popular movie titles on Blu-ray discs for our home entertainment, there are lots of directors and DPs stopping in at film restoration shops to see how their work looks all cleaned up, in 1080p HD and with their deleted scenes reinstated. Older films, like The Godfather, are undergoing intricate rehabilitation. And there are those that are older still: think Peter Sellers as Dr. Strangelove. Or the Three Stooges. Post recently talked to a number of top industry people engaged in what’s looking like a coming avalanche of newly-improved movies in HD.
Shops discussed include Laser Pacific, West Wing Studios, MPI, and Cineric. Very informative.


I must confess I am a little puzzled about the remasters/director's cuts for Friday and Set It Off - both New Line titles.

Good reading. It's amazing the amount of work & the level of technology required to make our favorite films look as good as we want them. It's a great time to be a collector.

I'm bundling up for the "coming avalanche."
