I hope Steve sent his good friend George this video to show him how you are supposed to restore old films.

You restore old films by adding more and more stuff to them. Dur. Or did you not like The Wizard of Oz where the Cowardly Lion beatboxes.

I really like remasters that are done with care like this. I'll definitely pick this up.

I like the remake of Casablanca when Bergman says "Play it one more time, Sam" and he gets out the turntables and bumps LMFAO's "Party Rock" more.

Or in Star Wars when the Storm Troopers fire their Walkie Talkies.

I worry about the scenes where Spielberg added animation to accentuate certain effects like water at night, or the shooting stars. I can imagine that looking worse in HD.

One thing you have to worry about is that many studios have a habit of scrubbing out natural film grain when they do these types of restorations, remasters, new transfers. Unfortunately it also scrubs out fine detail. This will often make actors look more like wax figures.

Watching that trailer and their attention to detail, I highly doubt this will be that. Plus, as time goes by, the technology gets better in dealing with stuff like that. You can compensate with unsharping masks and shit like that. I'll probably wait for a review to see if it lives up to the hype it created.

Being I do not have a hi-def TV, I doubt (actually, pretty fucking sure) I will buy it. That was an interesting peak on how they do it.

I would think the lack of a blu ray player would have cleared that up before the lack of a HD tv.

Truth be told, my kids have hi def and my son has a PS3, so if I really wanted to.....

hmmmm, I wonder what the hold up is getting Vertigo on Blu-Ray then

I know there was a restoration back in the mid 90's when it was rereleased in the theaters, but a lot of critics didn't like it for one reason or another.

I'd prefer Rear Window over Vertigo given the choice of Hitchcock. North By Northwest would also be great.
