    The last one I saw was a new DCP and looked great.

    Did this get newly remastered again? Universal could also do some work on Vertigo. It definitely doesn't look as good on blu-ray as it could.

    I don't miss a Rifftrax Live which is run through Fathom and sometimes the video or audio are messed up. Sometimes it's fine. I don't know that I could ever describe streaming as perfect in and of itself. Any issues I've experienced can be chalked up to shoddy live event recording/mixing or improper projecting in the theater itself.

    I'll be going 'cause I don't expect a 35mm print to be in my neighborhood any time soon.

    And the Fathom press release saying it's "digitally re-mastered for premium picture and sound quality" could mean anything from ten years ago to perhaps recently. Unfortunately I'm not finding much on TCM's site expanding upon this, which is usually a sign that it's the same old transfer.

    Vertigo would be the one to really see, and it definitely needs further restoration. Robert Harris has said as much after the Blu-ray release and he of course should know. Now that Vertigo has been voted by the AFI as the greatest film of all time it's more and more criminal with each passing day how Universal is treating Hitchcock's masterpiece.
