There are a lot of shit talkers doing the rounds. Some of the most contentious transfers have looked fine to me.

That's why when I finally go hd after Christmas I'll buy discs I'm interested in and watch them for myself before making judgement. Just like I did/do with DVDs, I never held off buying a DVD while waiting for an online review.

Quatermass looked amazing to me. I didn't even have much of a problem with DPOD. It still looked mikes better than any other version I've seen.

It just irks me a bit when surely someone who's being paid to do a transfer doesn't have the foresight to run a comparison or take some hints from one that's already been done as in CURSE OF FRANKENSTEIN. It's not that much effort surely and it just looks like it was given to someone who doesn't really know what they're doing.

It is truly baffling about the massive fubars as regards QC control goes, there's some real puzzlers lately - the NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD 90 blu springs to mind. It doesn't help that it was a limited edition that sold out on pre order so no one could actually get their copy before realising it had 'issues'. Saying that I would have taken a punt on it if I was interested in the film.

I seem to be quite fortunate in that I don't see 99% of the picture "problems" that people complain about. I was strongly advised not to buy the Tremors blu, but I love it, looks perfect to me.
As for The Devil Rides Out, as most people have said, I can't believe that they didn't think to include the original version, it just seems a bonkers decision. Don't they know that George Lucas went from hero to public enemy number 1?  :-\
