The transfer has to be seen in-person to see how awful it truly is. Dirt and noise reduction found along with MPEG-2
compression. Obvious cropping too. The fullscreen side is terrible. Don't go near it.

One of the worst I've ever seen. The fullscreen shot of Bruce with the puppet is a joke.

Thankfully most people in the UK now "get" Widescreen, even if they still ultimately don't care.

Hmm, I'm not so sure about that. I get really annoyed when people go to me 'can't you get rid of the black bars?!' when we're watching a 2.35:1 film... :roll:
