    New SE's...be careful!!!

    Word is starting to circulate that the new SEs of "Basic Instinct" and "Total Recall" have subpar video transfers...(that really stinks, I was looking forward to both of these)
    Word is that neither of these is as good as they should be, it seems Artisan has taken the old transfers and just enhanced them.
    I will wait to read more on these titles, but for now, I'm waiting. I'm not paying top money for sub-standard SEs.

    Enhanced them? Do you mean, as in "edge enhanced" them? Or just throwing in some extras to fill up the disk and lower the movie bit rate?

    Gawd, I'm in a cynical mood about big companies this month! Or rather, this year!

    Regards,

        It seems they've created anamorphic transfers, of the original DVD's transfer, many of the original flaws are being noted.
        I had hoped for quality along the lines of the new Terminator SE, but, it seems not to be.
        Within the next week or so I hope to get a first hand look at Total Recall, I'll let you know if it's worth buying. (I'm not buying until I compare the two)

          Another note here, the "new" Carrie SE is also subpar...again MGM used the exact same print to do the new SE, all the artifacts and scratches are still in this new transfer! (check the shower scene)

          Once again MGM stinks

            Yeah, it figures.When are these guys going to wake up.The only way to get even is to hit them in the pocketbook and stop buying their crap.Thing is, sometimes you don't know it's crap until you've put down your hard earned cash.
