    Never saw one. If I did I would buy it. Just like how a few years back I was in a local flea market. Found a Betamax of Phantasm. With the original price sticker from Radio shack on it. Went to buy it and the lady told me 3 times "Now this tape won't work in a vcr. You gotta get this special machine to play it." I let her know that I knew what a Betamax tape was,and that I had a working Betamax Vcr. Was totally worth the buck they charged me for it.

    The Second Sight disc is being authored by David MacKenzie, so if you're the sort of person who chooses which edition to buy based on how good the compression is that'll be the one to get.

    And, indeed, there are indications that the compression on the new U.S. Dark Sky Blu-ray is has caused a loss in fine detail (even below the prior Blu-ray release), so I'm definitely looking forward to see what Second Sight has done.

    Check out this comparison between the new Dark Sky Blu and the old Dark Sky Blu, fine detail appears to be obliterated: http://caps-a-holic.com/hd_vergleich...ess=#vergleich

    Differences in color timing are one thing (and Tobe apparently approved the look of the new transfer, so if he's OK with it then so am I), but the compression (or whatever else may have caused this issue) is really disappointing.
