Before I start I'd just like to say that I'm not sure where this post should go. Yes, it's about Zulu (and so is a film), but it's shown on Sky HD (which is on TV), so if there's any Moderators reading this, don't have a go!
Now on with what I have to say............
I have just watched the re-mastered showing of Zulu on Sky Movies HD, and I have to say - WOW!
I have never seen a print of a film so old look so, so good! I've seen films today that don't even come close to looking this good. If anyone has the re-mastered DVD's of the old James Bond films you'll know what I'm talking about.
I honestly have never
seen a print this good. My jaw actually dropped!
I don't know how much it must have cost Sky to get Paramount Pictures to completely restore the print, but it was clearly worth every singe penny.
This is the first time I have seen Zulu because I was waiting to see a decent presentation of it, and both Sky and Paramount have done a fantastic job.
I hope Sky makes this a regular thing - I'd like to see more films completely cleaned, restored and re-mastered from scratch and shown in HD more often.
If, like me, you haven't yet seen Zulu, or even if you have, then I VERY HIGHLY
advise everyone to see it on Sky HD. You really haven't seen it until you've seen it like this. The cleanest and sharpest print I have ever seen.
Something like this is a film and HD lovers dream!
Anyone else aggree?
