Did they at least do a true re-master of this movie?
This is no upres of the 2002 scan. Do you ever see the cracks and crags that the make-up artists put into the make-up. (Which is why this movie won an Academy Award for Make-up.) There is a little bit of flatness, but I think that comes from how the movie was originally shot in order to look like a comic strip.

Even small details like the opera singer at the beginning of the film are in real good detail.

Of course it would've been nice if Disney had put both the 1.66:1 and 1.37;1 versions on the disc. (Warren Beatty's original plan for he movie was too have it play in 1.37:1, to be like the films from the 30's and 40's, and to also be a square like a comic panel, plus when you're watching the movie you can see that everything was blocked and shot with a 1.37:1 aspect ratio in mind).
