This review is in regards to the new 4K restoration Blu-ray limited edition set that was released today. I had pre-ordered and received it today.
First off, this has always been my favorite movie. I own multiple VHS versions, an original promo betamax tape, DVD, LaserDisc, and now this new Blu-ray. The restoration was well done and still holds much of the grittiness it previously had. It is nice to see the improvements made that make it much more clear than older runs.
I do not like the new album art but Arrow Video was smart in allowing the actual cover art on the BR case to be reversible so you can have either the new or original artwork. Same with the included poster. The ~36 page book was a nice addition and thoroughly enjoyed reading it. And the little postcards were a nice addition as well. If you aren't a true strong fan of this movie, just buy the DVD, but for those of us who think this is a true classic, this set is a must have.
