This release is a perfect example where a "Director Approved" or "Director Supervised" does not mean anything. Initially this director claimed this is how his movie should look. Three years ago I did a review and my fellow AVSforum members agree (well, most of them) that he is out of his mind. It look so bad that the DVD release is still the best representation of the movie. This time the film's Director of Photography, Owen Roizman is involved. So, is it really better?
Just by looking at the 20th Century Fox logo of the original Blu-ray you can already see the atrocious digital manipulations. The new Signature Series now looks like film with the added resolution and sharpness from a high definition transfer.
