Totally in for "Some like it Hot" . On the other hand, a real shame to see it in normal case, how much would have it cost to bring it in digibook? Really disappointed by this .

I'm hoping for the best, but honestly this is MGM cheapskate productions we're dealing with here. And I'm still smarting from their piss awful Lars & The Real Girl lousy BD transfer. SLIH - No new extras and dropped special packaging, surprised? no.

Some like it hot:


Better PQ then Hustler but still detail challenged, if the images are correct. Dont expect to see a clear image of Monroe, looks like soft focus was used in her shots.

DVDbeaver's hardly perfect, but I have yet to see it's low jpeg settings make a soft image that other sites had sharp, that would be quite something. Can you provide an example of such a thing?

Bah. Both Forbidden Planet and Bridge over the River Kwai were in CinemaScope and they were indeed sharp, thats what new scans can do instead of old scrubbed DVD masters. Same old tired excuses for old DVD masters.
