They should send out a replacement disc.

There will be a replacement program all right. It's called "the Second Sight restoration"

It was always very long odds on my bothering with the French set, knowing Second Sight was coming. Glad I held off, as this sounds like an abomination of the highest order.

Ah well, c'est la vie!

At least mine will be a gift so I didn’t pay for it. Still looking forward to it.

It's quite gorgeous in terms of the restoration itself and the framing is something only a nerd would notice. The audio is more problematic.

That’s what I gathered from your notes. I hope the audio isn’t that distracting.

I don’t understand why they would leave the audio like that. I mean, with all due respect it sounds like all the effort was designated towards picture.

Re-watch the first nine minutes and then get back to me. You're looking at this in the context of the final product. The first reel without any titles is simply not anything upon which anyone should be judging correct framing.

Then, it's problematic if what the person supposedly checking this only got a non-representative sample.

You said Gornick got a properly centred sample. If he didn't, and it wasn't supposed to be representative of the final product, then that's fair enough. But if he was supposed to be checking the framing as well then I'd say it was a big ol' fail as it's still notably off-centre in several shots.

You can see what I mean about it being a LOT darker than any previous video version I can recall. I'm not saying that as a 'bad thing' though, I thought it worked very well and this timing was signed off by Michael Gornick after all.

And check out cap five, thanks to the silly embiggened framing you can now see Fran's sleeve in all its woolly glory!

Yep. You’re right. It’s definitely darker and I agree it works better. It really adds drama and danger. It doesn’t look like a tv show anymore. In my blacked out room it really felt creepy. I haven’t felt that way since seeing it for the first time. The detail is just beautiful, loved the grain. The cliche saying “seeing it for the first time” applies. I wasn’t expecting saturated colours like this either. Colour temperature looks better and more natural now. The overcast scenes looked great. Aside from the dreadful audio this is definitely the only way to watch this movie.

If it had audio that didn't sound like it was recorded and mixed in a bathtub and the framing wasn't so comically off then I'd agree, but as it is I'm still hoping that Second Sight's edition will be the Dawn to end all Dawns.

The audio really is a mess. I’m surprised the framing didn’t bother me all that much. I was admiring the detail too much, it distracted me. Do we know if the SS edition will be the Euro cut?
