Can someone explain why when they remastered the pictures come out so dark and murky? I love to collect screencaps and I've had to mess with the levels just to see many of those out now. This was not a problem on the old DVD resolution caps.
Because, with the remastered, they are using newer technology to transfer the shots from the film... the blu-ray is how they should've looked back then, but the technology didn't allow the quality to be captured... since it was analog and not digital...
They did post-production on video tape, that is why it always looked so poor.
