This is one of the great adventure films of all time. It deserves a better DVD treatment! This edition is garbage. DO NOT BUY IT.
The original DVD edition was shamefully mastered in 'matted' letterbox format, needlessly giving up resolution. This new edition is in proper anamorphic format, but something is wrong with the colors: they're over-saturated, with excessive contrast that 'blows out' any bright highlights. This is appalling, amateurish work, and deserves to be shunned and boycotted.
Hopefully, when they do the Blu-ray, they'll do a better job. (Yeah, right.) Of course, what they SHOULD do, is give people who have now purchased not one but TWO sub-standard copies of this film, a FREE copy of the next, properly-mastered version.
