In a conversation with Grim the other day, I mentioned how in a recent viewing of Friday the 13th (upconverted from SD) I noticed things that I had never seen before. Grim enthusiastically stated the he noticed the same things I had. This got me thinking of hi definition, the era we are moving into, and what it means for older viewer such as ourselves, who grew up accustomed to TV, VHS, and DVD copies of films, and are now experiencing them in a different way for the first time. Of course, there are some who had scene the original F13 theatrically, but if they're anything like me, their memory draws more from repeat viewings at home. Over the summer, I remarked to myself and anyone who would listen about how watching Halloween II upconverted felt like an entirely new experience. I think this is a positive for an era of people who feel like they've lost something with extinguishing of video rental stores and the instant gratification of Netflix and video streams.. Perhaps nothing will take the place of being a child or adolescent, peeling off from your mother at the supermarket to go stand in the video rental section, and turning over box after box in wonderment of the potential all these films held. But I think this is an acceptable replacement. I'm interested in hearing everybody's revelations upon viewing much-loved classics for the first time in high definition. Here are a few of my own. Halloween -When Annie, Laurie, and Linda are walking home and Michael drives past in the car, I never realized you could actually make his mask out. Friday the 13th -When Ned goes to meet his doom, for the first time I saw Mrs. Voorhees in all her glory, look at him, and turn to go inside the cabin. This actually adds a creepiness to a scene I never thought much of. -Titles of books, signs in the background. -Confirmation of when Brenda thinks she sees something in the woods from the dock, there's nothing there. I always thought I was missing out on something I just couldn't see.
