Default Worst Blu-ray Transfers?? Titles to Avoid

Well, now that the Blu-Ray standard is finally coming into its own lets hear everyone's mistakes. I mean the worst offenders that studios ought to be ashamed to have released!

The movies that were horrible transfers and are to be avoided:

Total Recall (Lionsgate)
Stargate (Lionsgate)
A Christmas Story (Warners)
The Fifth Element (Sony) (note Sony will re-release this disc with a better transfer, avoid at all costs the first transfer)

Do you have a source for that info? I have the old copy and if the new copy is out there I want to know about it and I want to get the new copy.

Fifth element is a horrible transfer, hands down terrible considering it is a state of the art sci-fi film. However, not as hands down terrible as Total Recall or Stargate

Stargate for sure. I wonder why someone mentioned Christmas Story. I saw that on HD DVD and thought it was ok for what it was. Oh well, to each their own.

I still haven't seen Total Recall, but I think it will be a dud as well.

I have Total Recall and I didn't thnk it was that bad. It appear to have good video and the audo was DTS ES 6.1 Matrix if I remember. I have Fifth Element and it is atleast better than DVD. I been desirng but avoiding Stargate. AVP was bad - I think a lot of people don't likle Fox movies because of the price.
