Two New Zombie Releases!

    I picked up the BU release yesterday and I must say it's a "night and day" improvment over the AB disc. It's almost like watching a whole different movie. The tropical island is now lush and green and actually quite pleasant to look at (not like before with the washed out pale colors). The blood is also a nice dark red instead of an orange carrot juice substance :). Overall everything is sharp and I recall only seeing grain in a few night scenes (the opening boat scene in particular). The most important thing is that the colors are dead on and that horrible horizontal banding is gone. Props to BU for an awesome transfer!

    Later on tonight I'll post some screen comparisons if I have some time.

    I'd like to see them, but have no doubt they'll be better (the AB disc is crap, after all). Need to see some comparisons of BU and SS though.

    I've already made the screens. I'll upload them when I get home this afternoon.

    I just went and pre-ordered the SS one, since it's only $18 at DeepDiscountDVD. I look forward to getting it!!

    I also was unable to find the Media Blasters version as I went to 2 Best Buy's and Circuit City. I really hope stores carry this version due to the fact that they already have BU's version on the shelf.

    Silly question, but I won't be buying Zombie until September. Is there an option to use the original Zombie artwork on the cover of the case (ie. a card insert, double-sided cover, ect)?

    Nah, on the other side it just has the chapters, which can be seen inside the transparent case.

    I heard (I think over at Home Theater Forum) that only the BU version would have the ITALIAN track with subs, while the MB/SS version may have a 5.1 but only as a dub track. Still think I might have to hold off for a bit, as I will probably only want one copy of it.

    And that link has an even later date of August 10.

    Is there anyone willing to make a high definition scan of the BU sleeve? I already have a Zombie release I'm satisfied with and it's always such a hassle for me to get discs from the U.S. in the country, but I really like the sleeve!

    I would be forever in your debt!

    Thanx!
