Looking how its supposed to?

In theory, any movie with a large amount of composited elements is "stuck" in that sense, unless the entire movie is reassembled from its original elements (which in most cases won't happen due to cost and technology).

These movies are stuck looking a certain way and can never really look any better due to it and actually end up looking worse than much older movies due to the tech used. Any good examples of this?
Every movie is limited by the technology available when it was made.

Mann is an oddity. He actually wants his movies to look like they were shot on analog video for some odd reason. Public Enemies in particular looks like it was shot on VHS.

I heard great things about this movie and so I figured I'd watch it, I did and I was kind of disappointed. Mainly, because it felt like a generic zombie movie and the picture quality in itself didn't help either.

The only way they could somehow improve the PQ is if they use AI Upscaler-like technology and the likes, etc.

Dog Soldiers will apparently always look like shit due to the film stock used.

Yeah, the Blu-ray does not do any favors to Siegel's photography. It did not look like that projected onto 35mm in theaters. It looked vibrant and alive, not dingy like the Blu-ray.

No, it was believed it would always look like shit because the negative was lost. Apparently it's since been found.

Best answer.
Every film has, is, and will be a product of the technology available in their time.
