No. If the transfers were done right, you wouldn't have a "choice." There's the way it was intended to look, and everything else, which is wrong. One is definitely better than the other because it's the way the filmmakers' intended. (and hint: it's not the 1999 THX DVD.)

You may prefer it, but it's not the proper way to watch the film.

got mine today from Bullmoose, with slipcover. Projected via my JVC RS-540 (with slightly over 100 hours on the bulb) and using an Oppo 203 along with an 11.2 Atmos set up on my Denon in a dedicated theater room the UHD quality is stunning. The audio on the 7.1 track is also very impressive. I actually have it set to the THX-Neural setting so I'm getting audio from every speaker.

While I see what some are upset about with the lack of inclusion of the original mono, to my ears, this track is fantastic. While I probably will never listen to the original mono it would have been nice to have it included. Not a deal breaker for me though. Best this movie has ever looked.
My Set-Up: JVC DLA-RS540u 4K eshift, 158" 2:35.1 Elite Anamorphic Screen and 11.1 Earthquake surround sound Complete with Denon 6300, Oppo 203

One clear piece of evidence why the 1999 THX DVD is wrong is when Michael is going after Laurie and punches through the door. It’s very blue, but when it cuts back to that same shot, the blue is gone.

You have a superiority complex. I'm not saying there's anything wrong with that. I'm merely stating you have one.

Nonsense. That's like listening to an audio cd "remaster" that is obviosuly brickwalled and clipped to hell, but saying it's the proper way to listen to the album just because so and so oversaw the remaster themselves.

A person is still entitled to their own opinion for one being "better" than the other. And why did he approve a completely different color timing in the past, if it wasn't "proper"?

Dean Cundey didn't supervised that master, but he was ok with it because he stated that it was the closest to what the movie could've looked like IF they had the money back then to make the movie look more like fall. In other words, a total revisionist of the original photography because obviously the movie was shot in spring and not in fall. Also DVD technology back in 1998 was limited and "primitive" to what came out in 2013. The 35th anniversary and 4k UHD (and even the 25th anniversary and 2008 blu-ray) has a constant color palette (regardless of how different from each other) thorought the film. But the on THX DVD, some night scenes are bluer than others and some daylight scenes with trees in the background look sometimes more greenish, yellowish and then brownish when its supposed to be the same shot .

Arbitrary? Umm, I think it's pretty much implied that they're there because of the break-in from Myers. It's just that the timing is off in the film for these events.

So you're suggesting there was another break-in later, not by Myers, that set the alarm off again? Lol.

3. Loomis’s final gun click at the end is missing on at least some surround mixes.

4. The final music cue (as Loomis looks down to see Michael Has vanished) is awkwardly inserted in the surround mixes. It feels as if the music cue begins suddenly, already in progress. This is hard to explain, but comparing the two tracks will make the difference pretty obvious.

There are other minor differences, but those are the ones that drive me crazy (in addition to what you’ve already pointed out).
There's also added bird chirping sounds during most of the outdoor scenes.

I've gotten into some pretty ridiculous arguments over there in the past - some members over there are downright aggressive and hostile, and some are absolutely clueless as you pointed out. It seems to depend on the thread. Some can be quite helpful, but others are beyond hope.

Okay, so I'm not gonna watch this all the way through yet (waiting on my wife and a friend to do a proper Halloween marathon), but I couldn't resist throwing the disc in and skipping around a bit.

Oh. Em. Jee.

Flummoxed by the seemingly mixed response to the PQ so far. This transfer is GORGEOUS. I mean, wow. The beautiful grain, the sharp detail, the muted colors, the punchy HDR. Wow. Sony-esque stuff, really. I can't imagine this possibly looking any better. I've never even been a fan of this movie, but the beauty of the images was pulling me into the film in a way I never have been before, and now I can't wait to rewatch the whole thing.

To my eyes, this is some stellar work by Lionsgate, and I now have complete confidence in The Evil Dead and First Blood. In fact, this looks so good that I think I'm not gonna wait to pick up American Psycho.
