The new transfer sports the original 2.35:1 super 35 transfer in anamorphic widescreen. The overall
colouring and cleaning done benefits the film and makes this DVD more enjoyable. There is less clipping in bright areas,
more colour saturation especially is skin tones and compression has been cleaned up a bit resulting in a better rendered
transfer.

You are busy thanks. Agreed the new version looks better but not to any huge extent.

This is one of those classic 80's flicks that is now longer possible, shame as Hollywood churned out some real classics in the 80's.

I own both Editions. Keeping the first one because of the commentary from John Hughes (why it wasn't carried over I've no idea why) and the second for the multitude of extras. The documentaries/featurettes are absolutely outstanding on the new release.
I'm back.
Film grain is a good thing dammit! Say NO to DNR/EE!

Nah, even his Ferris was an annoyingly bland twat.

Spoiled the movie for me as I wanted the Principal to catch him.

How on earth could he be considered cool by anyone?

They had to hire geeky Alan Ruck to make Broderick look less lame.

Would a hottie like Mia Sara go out with this Ferris? No forkin' way.

John Cusack would've been better casting methinks.

He's sometimes not that exciting either to be frank but on form he has an edge.

John Cusack has no charisma either.

Cusack has no charisma? The man has built his career on charisma, coz he's no character actor, that's for sure! :D

Cheers Joe. The new transfer does indeed look slightly better, but for me the upgrade ain't worth it since you lose the John Hughes commentary; I'll take that commentary over some Retropective fluff any day.

Actually, have you got the time signatures for those caps, Joe? Then I could post the matching R2 PAL caps.

Yeah I have no idea why they dropped the commentary. Bad move.
I'll post the times.

Cusack circa 'The Sure Thing' perhaps?

Made a year before 'Ferris'.

Regardless Broderick sucks.

The new one looks inferior as the grain/noise elimination result in a soft image.

Oddly, the opening shot (as seen in cap #1) appears to be framed very differently from both R1's.

Lol, the UK disc does look better.

The film was, I think, shot in Super35 so there's a bit of room for frame manipulation.

I didn't realise the Joe used such a large resolution when I made those caps. I can't be arsed redoing them for a proper comparison, this one will suffice.
