    got this for christmas. the transfer is extremely disappointing - colours are flat and detail is lacking - but i'm not sorry to have it...at least it's an upgrade on the non-anamorphic dvd. some scenes are definitely better than others. it basically looks like a decently upscaled dvd. i haven't seen it in years, but it really is a great movie. worth getting if the price is right (or as a gift).

    It's discs like this that makes Shout Factory fail in comparison to Arrow.

    if there had been another option, i would have taken that in a heartbeat. it appears that, as unfortunate as it may be, this is the best version of the film available at the moment.

    I somehow managed to get $10 for my DVD, so I have no regrets. Cheap upgrade of a great movie.

    Not saying i wouldn't pick it up for the right price. It's just a shame they couldn't of done it justice.
