    Yeah I thought bits and pieces of it were OK but didn't really like the movie as a whole.

    Here are some screenshot comparisons I've uploaded of the transfers from the OLD Blu-ray (2014) and the NEW Blu-ray (2020).

    These are taken approximately from the same frames in the film, but they are just general comparisons...not always exact frame comparisons.

    The old Blu-ray had an open aspect ratio of 1.78:1. The new Blu-ray restores the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1

    "OLD Blu-ray" screenshots are shown above, and the "NEW Blu-ray" screenshots are the ones underneath them:

    The improvements of the new 4K scan are more apparent in some than others, but it looks quite nice in motion...

    Thanks for the comparison. Maybe it's just me, but based on those screengrabs, I prefer the look of the old transfer?

    Well, here's something that didn't even make the uncut version of My Bloody Valentine (photo credit to Hysteria Lives):

    I don't why ... (because of the workprint artifacts) ... but the guy on the left, reminds me of this.

    I’m now curious to check out my VHS copy lol assuming that’s where the screenshot comes from. Was the VHS open-matte? It’s funny that they’re completely naked in that shot when the intended 1.85:1 ratio crops that shot at chest level.

    That's not on the VHS. I assumed it's a behind-the-scenes still? The uncensored version might show up on disc in Shout's Photo Gallery? I seem to recall them slipping in a topless photo of Amelia Kinkade having prosthetics applied in the Night Of The Demons photo gallery.
