I belive filmed on 35mm , even this 'primitive technology' is superior (objectively) to todays hi-def formats.

Yes, objectively indeed...

Lol, If it was filmed on 35mm and remastered for Blu-ray then it'll be waaaay superior to DVD quality. Like yakkowarner says 35mm can be considered superior to some of today's HD standards. Did you think it was filmed using a DVD camcorder or something? :?.

and? :?

'Old' 35mm film has a resolution about 4 times higher than Blu-Ray/1080p (If you think about it, film is projected onto a 50m cinema screen & still needs to look good. Blu-Ray typically will only be used on a 40" or so TV, & if blown up to 50m wouldn't have alot of detail & likely look rubbish. So 'old' film is 4 times more 'HD' than the Blu-Ray format you're referring to.

Yes, I know all this but it all depends on how well they've done the transfer, how well the source film they've used has aged. Quality of the original stock of the 35mm used for filming, the camera equipment and cameramen..

Afterall we've not all got 35mm projectors and the original source film, so bluray is the best we can do for now..

Given that the film is over forty years old, and suffered from a low budget, I figured it would look just okay -- but this 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 encode sparkles. If only all vintage catalog titles looked this slick.I was quite impressed with how cleaned up the source elements are. Grain is present but thin for a film of this era, and there are no real blemishes to speak of. Colors are quite robust, particularly the great use of comic book primaries, which are stable and consistent. Fleshtones, too, look natural. Detail is way above average for a catalog title, with excellent depth throughout, and ample sharpness. Granted, shadow delineation falls off a bit, lending a softer look to darker scenes, but all things considered it's still a great effort. There are no major compression artifacts, and only a few minor instances of jaggies distracted. Kudos, Fox.

There should be a mandatory note attached to the bottom of each Blu-Ray released of a movie over 20 years old on here. It should contain a quick guide on what HiDef actually is and how, in it's current incarnation, will never come close to the high resolution that 35mm film is capable of.
