So line thinning in the Betty Boop Definitive Collection is enough to make a grown man cry? Please tell me that's poorly-used hyperbole.

http://www.hometheaterforum.com/t/321432/the-invisible-man-the-complete-series-blu-ray-review VEI's blu-ray of "The Invisible Man": The Complete series is a double whammy because not only do all the episodes (Except for parts of the pilot which is instead squished) are cropped to 16x9, and the entire series is squeezed onto a single disc, resulting in overcompression that makes it virtually unwatchable. The DV Ds however are NOT CROPPED making the decision to do so on the Blu-Ray all the more puzzling and insulting.

How do we know that the older Disney restorations are truer to the original theatrical releases than the ones currently available? Their restoration team has publicly admitted that the color schemes of the 1992 (and maybe even older) presentations of Pinocchio don't reflect the original negative as truly as the 2009 Blu-Ray and DVD do, so doesn't it sound possible this applies to the older videos of Cinderella and Fantasia?

Color oversaturation happens because it is well known that the colors in color film inevitably fade. If you know this, and you are aiming for the original, you will try to correct. If you are not sure what the original is, you might overcorrect.

Note: if a studio is attempting to restore a film to better than it was when it was released, then it'll look like Digital Destruction to at least some of the viewers by definition...
