Age Group Genxer
Video Likes OAR, crisp and sharp transfers, and grain appropriate to the medium (what's with these people who want to make film look like video by removing every trace of grain??!)
Video Dislikes Incorrectly framed transfers, releases touted as "restorations" that have minimal work done to remove artefacts and blemishes
Audio Likes DTS tracks included when film was released to cinema with DTS sound. Plenty of bass!
Audio Dislikes "5.1 audio" that may as well be stereo.
Favourite DVDs Too many to name! Beautiful restorations of old films like Warner's NOW VOYAGER and CITIZEN KANE ... through to sci-fi spectaculars like INDEPENDENCE DAY.
Least Favourite DVDs Anything released in R4 which has a better print available elsewhere - for example Universal's IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE (where's the restored R1 print??!)
Most Eagerly Awaited DVDs ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN Season 1!
