So do I, but not the Collector's Edition from Scream Factory! What, is this your first day here? O_o

While I wait for this to be released, I'll be watching my double-dipped 30th Anniversary Edition of 'Highlander'.

" (What are they researching? Doesn't matter!). "

This right here (from the review) is what makes Carpenter great. Same thing with his original 'Halloween' versus the Rob Zombie remake.

EDIT: Wait, Dean Cundey oversaw this new scan? Are the leaves still orange?

I'm waiting to find out if our release of the 30th for Highlander contains that new 4k scan from Studio Canal or not. If it's the old transfer again I'll import.

From what I hear, it is the same as a relatively recent European rescan and rerelease (I don't recall from who off hand), but it is an improvement over any North American releases. I grabbed it for $10, so I'm happy.

Looks like I (as well as Josh) will be happy. They lost their Orange color scheme (on the teal and orange rating system) and made it more natural. Almost a tad too much teal but it still looks so much better. When I was much younger this film made no sense to me.
