Great movie, but it have never had a good release. So this is a wait and see what they have done to the picture. The DVD just were crappy.

Actually, the remastered special edition DVD from 2004 was fairly decent, for a DVD (certainly much better than the non-anamorphic shit recycled over several other editions). And the HD DVD release from 2007 improved upon the 2004 SE quite handedly. It wasn't just the best version of the film so far released on home video, it was one of the best (looking) catalog titles Universal released on the HD DVD format.

Assuming Uni hasn't done their usual thing and added a bunch of unnecessary noise reduction (the HD DVD has nice and natural grain intact) and cranked up the edge enhancement to 11 (the HD DVD already had some, but not a lot) this belated blu-ray, assuming it uses the HD DVD source, should look fine.

I concur with Super-VHS above. The HD DVD for this looked excellent.
