    Don't worry good taste will come your way eventually.

    LOL!

    Of course I should mention that I'm a extremely die-hard Floyd/Roger Waters fan:)

    I'd buy it only if there are actually extras on it, otherwise no sale.

    As one of my favourite Fulci movies, I'll probably upgrade and sell my old copy.

    I agree with DecayingFlesh, there's definitely something to be said for the atmospheric, grainy versions of certain movies. I find this adds something of a documentary feel to the proceedings.

    I really like how COTLD looks. It's grain seems very film-like and adds to the whole atmosphere of the film. I really cannot judge from these small screenshots and I don't know if EC's dvd is anamorphic in the first place.

    I like the grain. It reminds me of how these films looked in the big screen. Sometime, cleaning up that grain is like taking something away from these films.

    Thanks for those screenshots Paul. The EC disc does seem to look better.

    I find it difficult to know what is natural or intention "grain" and what is "dirt". Non of Fulci's other films seem to look the way COTLD looks, does anyone know why it is was intended to have the grain? If indeed, it IS grain, rather than dirt. We had a similar dicussion over Dead and Buried, which looks awful projected.

    Like I said earlier I seriously doubt COTLD is supposed to look as bad and grainy as the AB dvd but I could be wrong. On a smaller set it looked ok but on the 47 inch set the grain looks very bad in fact the worse graininess I've ever seen. I would hate to see it on a much larger set and heaven forbid a projector.

    Oh no, not the worse! ;)

    Grain doesn't really bother me anymore. I'll take it any day over pixelation or compression artifacts. That said, I still wouldn't mind seeing how COTLD would look with a new transfer. Hopefully it'll be worth the upgrade.

    I don't mind grain much either on any other movie but this dvd is just excessive. I can't stand compression artifacts either.

    Having projected both this and Dead and Buried, Iäd say Dead and Buried is worse. Apparently, it was meant to be like that. COTLD though, who knows? I think we can all agree it ain't going to be worse :D
     
  14. Not getting this. I'm sick of upgrading. The DVD available now from Anchor Bay is fine. They can slap on as many "bonus interviews" they want. The picture quality is fine.

    :fire: re-buying the same movie

    Anchor Bay and grain? Try HALLOWEEN 4. Even the daylight scenes crawl with it,

    My favorite Fulci film ( though it's not as good as Zombie or The Beyond ) getting the SE treatment :D . I hope they arn't calling it a 25th Anniversary Edition for nothing, Shreik Show haven't lied to us before have they ? ;)

    There should be a Catriona MacColl commentary for it along with a ton of crew interviews just like the Zombie 2 disc.


    LUCIO !!!!!!

    I hope more information on this release is put out there soon... I'll definitely double-dip for this classic. I'll probably keep my AB disc, though, as it's one of the first DVDs I ever bought online.
