A director of a film has no business saying how he wants the film to look?
Watch "The French Connection" from an older dvd.

Then watch the blu-ray and decide for yourself.


The enterprise & moon should not be blue-cast in my opinion.
What a viewer thinks is not pertinent to the question of whether a director has the right to change their work.

George Lucas has the right to redo Star Wars any way he wants; if you don't like it, don't watch it. Same goes for "The French Connection".

The point is,the shots of the blue enterprise & regula moon are not what was shown in theatres or any other previous release....thats what most of us want.

Re: TWOK on Bluray FX question

How is it more pissy to say someone has the right to do something than to say they do -not- have the right to do it?

Re: TWOK on Bluray FX question

The film's director of photography got into a fight with Friedkin about the blu-ray release of "French Connection," saying pretty much what everyone was thinking: Friedkin ruined his own movie, and the hard work of many other people on the production.

It brings up the question - Does the director have the right to do that? He may be the director, but filmmaking is an extremely collaborative process. On one side, though, George Lucas owns literally everything about Star Wars because Lucasfilm is his. William Friedkin doesn't own 'The French Connection' in the same way.

Re: TWOK on Bluray FX question

Well, apparently he had the right to do it or he wouldn't have been able to do it, unless he committed some sort of illegality in the process.

That doesn't mean he -should- have done it or that it was responsible of him to do it, but those are separate issues.

Re: TWOK on Bluray FX question

It would certainly make a good legal case, I think one of the legal procedural shows needs to do a thinly veiled case like the People vs. Lucas.
