Yup...the new dvd is better. Well worth the upgrade.

Jeez guys, I don't know. I'm not crazy about the orange hue in the new disc. I think the older DVD had a much more realistic color reproduction. (But certainly the anamorphic enhancement and digital clean-up makes the newer one the winner).

the old one was anamorphic. the new disc has like an orange hue to it but it look great! the old disc had too much grain IMO and looked a lil blocky

Let's not forget all the cool extras on the new disc(s). Add on how much better it looks, the fact that it's not in a snapper case, and a few other points I'm surely missing and it's a no-brainer!

Couple of screenshot comparisons which show how different colors are on these two releases.

The old one is way too grainy and I think the colors of the new release are better too.

Shots from the old release are on the left:

The new DVD transfer looked a hell of a lot better on my setup. As others have said, I noticed more grain on the old release. And the new extra features just can't be beat.

Great thread! Thanks for taking the time to compare captures!!!!

The new disc does indeed have a fucked orange hue but it's far cleaner. Plus, as BigDaddy stated, no snapper + extras make the new disc a clear winner. I'm def gonna upgrade ... when spare cash rolls around.

Is that Echo and The Bunnymen video on this new release?? If it is, I'm buying. :)

Nope, it has the video for 'Lost In The Shadows' on the 2nd disc though.

We watched this last night. The new DVD is an obvious improvement. Does anyone else think they should make Lost Girls? I think if they made it a year or two after LB it could've worked, but part of the LB charm is that it has that 80's feel which they probably would not be able to reproduce at all.

The new disc is also less cropped then the old one. When I first saw Lost Boys I seem to recall the orange hue nature, it's part of the look for the film to me.
