Might have to import this if we don't get a release here in the states.

There are teeny-tiny PAL and Dolby Digital logos on the front (plus it being linked to Studio S) which makes me hold off any pre-order at this time. Newly remastered or not, if this turns out to be a lossy sound and 1080i50Hz affair then I'm not biting.

I'm fairly certain those are part of the credit block that one needs to include on the cover.

Still, past BDs courtesy of Rapid Stream Media haven't exactly been generous with lossless audio. Quite the opposite actually. They tend to issue more DVDs and seems like they don't want to go the extra mile with the few BDs they do release.

Awful awful blu-ray. The master is obviously old and sourced for HDTV and looks rough and 1080i'ish. Don't get me wrong, it's HD, but just barely. No DTS sound.

LMAO, why am I not surprised?!

Wasn't there another European (French?) releases lined up as well? Wouldn't surprise me if it is the same master used for that as well.

So you have this release already? Is it possible to take screen grabs?

Also.. is there a reputable place that ships Nordic releases to the US?

Sure, here you go. It's MPEG2 btw, and it is indeed 1080i.

Wow, that is rough. You can't even read the writing in the letter she's holding.

Thanks for the screens. Only thing I can say is at least it's better than the non-anamorphic North American DVD I have.

If I order this, it might finally take the "Worst Quality Blu-Ray in My Collection" title away from The Family Man. :P

This isn't even an old HDTV source. This is...to my eyes, an SD upscale.

I compared it to the HD version on HBO and it does look identical so I do think it's HD.

Anyone have information on the German release that just came out?

https://www.blu-ray.com/movies/An-Am...lu-ray/182117/

Specifically, region-coding, but any other issues we should be aware of?

Caps-a-holic has it up.

Looks overly processed, but not terrible.

They couldn't pay me to own a release looking like that.

I don't like the looks of it either but they could certainly pay me to own it. Seems like a odd business model but I would be up for it.

If you're a fan of the movie you don't have much choice. It's the best version available.

I don't buy substandard releases anymore, no matter how much of a fan I am. The Swedish and the German are the worst of the worst.

What's most interesting about those screen comparisons is much of a giant leap it is over the DVD, yet how processed it looks in comparison to a film-like grainy transfer. I may upgrade it just so that I can watch the film without the murky DVD transfer.

So we have the choice between a s**t BD transfer or an even s***ier DVD transfer.

Great!
