Yep, my friends all loved that movie at the time. I was like, was that the worst SEAL team ever seen on camera? What a waste of a SEAL team. What a stupid movie.

Check out the Blade Runner: Director's Cut (1992) [NJL-12682]
Does not have the dialogue overdub that Scott did not have in mind in his original vision.
The "company" made him include the overdub to explain the story vs. the abstract work of science fiction art as it was intended to be from the beginning.

Also (my fav) Blade Runner (1982) [NJEL-20008] This Japanese release of a U.S. Theatrical version has a few different twists. NOT - including more gore during the murder of Dr. EldenTyrell and the nail going through Roy Batty's hand.
This version has a cool insert emphasizing the Spinner design concept artwork at various stages of pre production. Very, very cool cover layout, front and back ......
Check this version out as well if able .....

Hope this helps mate,

Cheers,
J

I had thought the THX release of Die Hard looked pretty good, also the first Austin Powers film.

Even with the advent of 4k now, these discs look amazing from the laserdisc format.

Pulp Fiction Criterion
Cliffhanger Special Edition
The PAL CAV Jurassic Park
Hound of the Baskervilles (Hammer)
Sleepy Hallow
The Matrix

I'm been surprised how many discs look superb even now.

Also look at the colour of a lot of discs. They seem to be more accurate on laserdisc. Look At The Matrix on laserdisc and then look at it on DVD or blu-ray, it's more teal than green.

And for some reason blu-ray seems to compound the problem. Maybe the people doing the encoding are teal fanatics!

I sort of got under the impression that because it's called "blu-ray" everything has to be more "blu".
