    actually the old movies edited on blu-ray exclude not much additional material. companies only spend the money for the remastering and no more.

    Just got my copy yesterday from Amazon. Great picture quality in parts. Gwildor and Evil-Lyn were more luminous. Glad this finally got Blu-Ray treatment, but the lack of new extras was disappointing.

    I found it at a local Best Buy today for $13.99. They only had 3 copies of it and it wasn't with the new releases. It is too bad they couldn't at least include the alternate (extended) ending as an extra.

    Best Buy was also the store I had gone to, this past Tuesday for the MOTU movie. Similar like what FireFly said, there was 3 copies of the movie as well, along with the one I purchased, and are priced at $13.99 too. The movie was kinda hidden when I looked for it at the store. It was not like it was right in front and noticeable. A little bit of searching had to be done.





    LONG LIVE MOTU/MOTUC'S

    Thrashor is insulted by the lameness of the original film.

    The Blu-Ray has nothing different from the dvd other than the HD Transfer of the film. He-man rocks on Blu-ray! Now I need the 2002 He-man cartoon on Blu-ray! Come on Mill Creek!

    Haven't been on the forum for a while but thought I'd put in my two cents worth regarding the blu-ray.

    Audio-wise, the blu-ray sounds great thanks to the lossless track.

    As for the video... Well, unfortunately, despite sharp details, I feel the image has been badly mastered. Colours have been incorrectly timed, an unnatural green tinge permeates the image most of the time, and there's issues with contrast and black levels.

    Here are some DVD & Blu-ray comparison pics that showcase the issues I mentioned.

    http://voltarchive.animation-web.com...motu03-dvd.jpg
    http://voltarchive.animation-web.com.../motu03-bd.jpg

    In the above comparison, the colour on the blu-ray is really dull and lacking in vibrancy compared to the DVD.


    http://voltarchive.animation-web.com...motu09-dvd.jpg
    http://voltarchive.animation-web.com.../motu09-bd.jpg

    In the above comparison, the blu-ray image has off-colours and the green tinge I mentioned, whereas everything looks normal and more natural on the DVD.


    http://voltarchive.animation-web.com...motu12-dvd.jpg
    http://voltarchive.animation-web.com.../motu12-bd.jpg

    In the above comaprison, the lovely vibrant blue hue as seen on the DVD is no longer vibrant on the blu-ray. It's now what I can only describe as a dull and murky dark green-esque colour.


    http://voltarchive.animation-web.com...motu14-dvd.jpg
    http://voltarchive.animation-web.com.../motu14-bd.jpg

    In the above comparison, the blacks are too dark on the blu-ray, causing some details on Skeletor and his costume to be less visible.


    http://voltarchive.animation-web.com...motu18-dvd.jpg
    http://voltarchive.animation-web.com.../motu18-bd.jpg

    In the above comparison, the contrast is way too high on the blu-ray. A real big screw-up here.


    http://voltarchive.animation-web.com...motu16-dvd.jpg
    http://voltarchive.animation-web.com.../motu16-bd.jpg

    In the above comparison, the glow at the top of He-Man's sword and the streaks of light coming from it are completely washed out on the blu-ray.


    http://voltarchive.animation-web.com...motu19-dvd.jpg
    http://voltarchive.animation-web.com.../motu19-bd.jpg

    I don't think I need to explain this one. A prime example of incorrect colour timing on the blu-ray.


    Coupled with the lack of new extras, the blu-ray is overall a disappointment.

    It's not just the green that's off, it's pretty much every colour.

    The new German Blu-ray edition had the good idea to add the French theatrical artwork as the reverse cover.
    The disc also includes a photos and poster gallery (from my personal collection) added to the audio commentary and theatrical trailer.

    I wonder if Dave Rapoza knows that his art work is being used?

    Great post. I recently saw a documentary that had a segment on color timing. It is an underappreciated art, that can drastically impact how a film looks and feels.

    Too bad the movie was given a disappointing blu-ray release. I'll just keep watching my DVD and loving it for what it is.

    The cover art does look a little funny. There were so many great original pieces made for this film. That is David Rapoza who is on Deviantart. Comissioned, borrowed or stolen?
    Made it through Cyber Monday with everything I wanted, well, almost.

    That looks like the NYC skyline and what's up with the chain mail gauntlet?

    Not only that, but look at the sword! I think that's Conan's father's sword!

    I think they might've put Arnie's or Jason Momoa's wrist and sword in there.

    It also looks like there's something (a blob or ship) covering a portion of Earth behind He-Man on the back cover. Perhaps that was taken from something else?

    A very weird design. I'm suspicious that there's some stolen imagery being used throughout that cover.

    Strangely when Winkler Film was to make their edition I mentioned the color grading in the US and they were willing to adjust it. They had been given two masters from both Warner and MGM. They were the same except one was 1.78:1 (WB) and the other 1.85:1 (MGM). When I put them in touch with Gary Goddard (who had told me a year before the US edition didn't sound right) he told them not to change anything and leaving it as that as it was the master approved by the studio...

    Tricky but probably possible if you find the right site with international shipping and manage to go by the Portuguese language.
