    SPOILERS AHEAD (just in case you haven't seen it): Just finished The Empire Strikes Back. I think it's only the second time I've seen it since it came out. A friend loaned me the '06 limited edition with the original version. Good movie. I thought it would have made sense if a few lines were added. For example you might expect Luke to say to Yoda, "Why didn't you say so?" and Han might have asked Leia about the thing she says is outside the ship, "Did you see it, what did it look like?"

    Guns of Navarone on Superbit DVD.

    Excellent old war movie, but the PQ on this DVD is terrible.
    Some scenes are actually OK, but others look no better than VHS, maybe worse.
    I have most of the Superbits (bought for next to nothing when they deleted them) and this is easily the worst.

    Full Frame 4:3, from the negative. I have Full Metal Jacket and Eyes Wide Shut in those formats as well. Widescreen is questionable with Kubrick... the films were certainly shown in theaters in widescreen, and that was approved as well. So I guess it's just a matter of how much of the frames you want to see. What's your preference?

    My understanding was he wanted full frame for home viewing because of the state of the equipment and screens of the time. Who knows what he would have wanted with hi-def, larger screens, and more home theaters? I suspect more towards OAR.

    Managed to watch the rest of 'Peeping Tom' ( bd player initially froze disc).
    Great UK ( 1960) period movie. The piano score( Scriabin ) would have been more suited in a silent film. The newspaper shop was amusing especially the Hitchockian lookalike. Then there's Pamala Green. Not so much a shocker in 2016.
