Re: TMP Director's Edition Coming To Blu-ray

My feeling is that this was a mistake on the part of the Paramount press release people, and we'll get a clarification that this is the case.

I certainly hope to see the Director's Edition re-rendered and assembled for Blu-Ray, with some significant cleanup of the original film elements.

As an addendum, perhaps recompositing some of the effects shots digitally to clean up the matte lines, and get more clarity out of the model elements (compositing elements in 1979 produced some generational degredation whenever a layer was composited in to produce the effects).

If I were them, I'd get Darren Dochterman to work with his team, and bring in CBS Digital for the restoration work for the effects shots, and maybe to revamp the sound mix, using the Director's Edition DVD as a guide.
