Only il sourpusso would be disappointed by the longevity of this joke.

a bit to radical alteration (the cook in the kitchen, Hoffmann looking up comparisons)
Honestly, when this teal era is going to end, i wonder..

Do we know how did the restoration here?

I'll reserve judgement until I see it, but a lot of the bottom pictures look great, especially that close-up of Voigt. I've seen vintage prints recently which definitely had scenes that could be mistaken for a little green leaning. That color timing isn't necessarily wrong, and there's a world of difference between these Cowboy caps and what we see in say, Ran or Color Of Pomegranates.

Gross. At least Indicator is doing what they can, based on their de-tealed St Valentine's Day Massacre caps

At least, it looks like a shot-by-shot change, not a blanket change but the brighter shots look indeed very... modern looking.

I'd suppose (though I might be wrong) Indicator hasn't done anything here, but it's Sony who is to praise for the newer color timing.

I’m no expert on the color timing of this film but I seem to remember people saying here and elsewhere that the MGM edition wasn’t green enough (particularly noticeable in the shade of Voight’s green shirt) compared to what prints looked like, so maybe it’s closer to the source to just be teal?

It's Fox, not Sony, and they have the world's biggest hardon for blue/green biases, so no way did Indicator get it handed to them like this

My bad then, I thought it was Sony.
Is Massacre a Deluxe title though ? It always seemed to me that the Fox heavy blue restorations were Deluxe titles.
It would also mean that Indicator is now doing additionnal exclusive technical work for their releases, which so far isn't what I understood they have the resources for.

Every Fox movie TT's been given has looked bluer than the DVDs. See the differences in Pretty Poison, a film I doubt Fox did anything deluxe for. Perhaps this has been a choice by TT/Fox after the fact and not inherent in their masters, but I doubt it

I thought this phenomemon was less widespread than this within the Fox catalogue, hence my question. This is worrying.

Indicator didnt do anything, the same master was also used on the previously released german blu ray.
