Ran Masterworks Edition quick glance

jsut recieved the box set yesterday and popped it in last night for thefirst few chapters, and it looks like CRAP, the tansfer is really dissapointing it still looks very artifacted an there is still quite a bit of shimmering in many scenes. the box is pretty nice and the transfer is in fact anamorphic, the 5.1 track was pretty good. the disc has a much beter improvement in the audio department than the video dept, i have to say i thin te new disc looks better on my widescreen tv than the old disc did, but i think its jsut due to the anamorphic enhancement, im not too sure how much better the print would look displyed on a 4:3 set. sorry i sold my old disc when i heard about this one so i cant compare. the print did seem to be cleaned up a bit more but it still looks like ass. i really hope some otehr company gets around to releaseing this, maybe a japanese version will come available.

ooops posted this in the wrong forum, sorry im jsut hardly eve in the region1 forum. feel free to move!

I agree on the transfer but it is greatly improved over the prior one. I have a thread on this here:

I got it too & have a 16x9 HDTV & agree that Ran's transfer is really a bit disappointing.
