The old ones has a yellow-teeth color to them. YUCK!
Good luck with your renovation project.
Just put in a massive, two tiered deck myself.

You make my project sound extremely small in comparison with yours. The copper wiring in my walls is the thicker variety. God almighty it's a pain in the ass having to manhandle that goddamn wire around!

Looks great. Hope a UK label picks this up at some point. I have the German DVD which comes in a nice hardbox but would love this in HD.

I see that director William Sachs has become "William Sacks" for his credit during his on-screen interview.

I have not see The Incredible Melting Man, but based on that review I'm going to have to buy this at some point.

I attribute this change to having children. My dad didn't waste time and money on frivolous things. So I even though I'm in my late 30's maybe its time to grow up and be more responsible. That and I need to spend more of my free time looking into things that can make our lives more fulfilling. It will be interesting to see how long it takes before I move onto different interests. This movie buff hobby didn't start until 2007. Which was when my wife got pregnant with my first son and I started feeling trapped in my house.
boy, do i ever relate to this. having a kid has really changed the way i look at both buying and watching movies. its just not the priority it once was, and to be honest, i'm kind of happy about that.

I feel the same, and have for a while now.

Dvdbeaver review of The Fog:

http://www.dvdbeaver.com/film4/blu-r...og_blu-ray.htm

I usually don't do this, but I just bought the Optimum blu-ray on eBay fot $8.00. As a rule, you can't judge a bd by screenshots, but the Shout! bd looks very dark. I still have it preordered though.

That review was posted back on page 3.

I'd guess that the Shout! actually looks more accurate for lighting, where as the Optimum's white levels appear highly blown out...

My apologies. I looked quick through the thread and missed the prior post. I don't know, the Optimum screenshots just look more natural. What the hell right? It was only $8 (with shipping). Even if I prefer the Optimum transfer, it has zero additional features. The Shout! Bd more than makes up for that. Either way, I'm excited about owning this classic on 1080p.

I rather like the Shout! picture on THE FOG. The other one looks way too vibrant - colorful but hardly moody enough for a film about ghost pirates in a damp, foggy coastal town.

Keep in mind, the file size on the Shout Factory disc is nearly twice as big as the UK disc, and it has double the bitrate. So you can't fairly judge until you've seen it in motion.

Based on the caps, I think the Shout caps look much more natural. Just look at the close-ups of Hal Holbrook, or the one of Andy sitting around the campfire. The UK disc looks boosted to the point of wiping out detail.
