Some caps don't show much difference (for BD vs DVD)

A couple do reveal greater sharpness and clarity.

Are we talking very good DVD or not so good BD?

The BD was one of the early ones and is MPEG2 on a single layer. So it's not much good really and the particular shots Tom chose don't really show things off much.

Wide shots show a big increase in detail (cap 3).
Not much of a difference in close-ups, however (cap 4).

I'd say: Good DVD and average BD.
Better to wait for a better encode (AVC or VC1).
I used to be "the man who loves the movies you hate".
Now I'm just "that weird french guy with a cat avatar who comes to BnB once a year for no reason and then disappears again".

The BD looks like it's worth it, despite not being perfect.

If its cheap that is, as you can get the dvd for what? £2 now. I will keep my standard set.

I'll wait for the eventual double-dip (if it's remastered with a decent codec). This is one Liongate's flagship catalogue titles afterall, another BD release will come.

Optimum/Momentum may very well put out a Studio Canal master-based release in the mean time.

You can get the current BD for under a tenner so maybe not worth worrying about if a remaster does come along some time. Not like we're talking about one of Fox's silly $40 vanilla jobs.
