Default Good The Bad And The Ugly, anyone else dissapointed?

First off I love the movie. It's Clint Eastwood's greatest western IMO. But the picture quality of the Blu-ray SUCKED!! It looked like I was watching a stamdard def DVD. Thid could have been a top notch release. Anyone else dissapointed by the picture quality?

The screens looked muddy, and hyper-scrub DNR-ed.

There'll probably be a better restoration at some point, so I'll Netflix this one and wait.

Honestly, I've seen so much of The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly that I'm more excited about the earlier ones. Hell, my favorite Leone film is Once Upon A Time In The West. When that came out on DVD years back, I watched it everyday for a week. I was moved by that film.

That is a damn shame.

I was looking forward to buying this eventually. One of my all time favorite movies. This is THE go to movie for a friend and me, so I've watched it many times especially since that special edition came out in what...2004?

Anyway, I want to get this at some point.

Agreed on OUATITW. Favorite Western ever? Maybe.

But that DVD looked great, so I'm sure the BD will impress.

It doesn't look as good as it could, but please... enough with the hyperbole.

I think in the liner notes, or it was a Digital bits segment? Can't remember. Anyway...they were talking about how it might have looked "too good".

The DVD Beaver review compared it to the DVD, and it looked considerably better... I'm still in for it, PM me if you want to sell me yours

I am really torn on this because this is one of my favs. I want to buy it because it sounds like it is the best out there so far of this film but I have a feeling they will have a better looking transfer come out.
