UK company MediumRare recently released this long awaited classic, finally in remastered -anamorphic widescreen for the first time. But the audio track they were given by Fortune Star was awful. Very muffled. Volume kept dropping down low then coming back up. Deterioration was very evident.
Heavy noise reduction used, which in my opinion made it sound worse. And to top it off, it kept going in and out of sync.
So....I sync'd up the laserdisc audio with it, properly. And pitch corrected it, because John Saxon was sounding very unlike him self. Now its enjoyable to watch. :thumbsup:
These screen shots don't do the quality justice. It looks great on an upscaler dvd/bluray player. My screen shots from VLC player suck.
