Three Stooges: Colorized! Part 2.

Discussion in 'DVD Video' started by One-Shot Scot, Aug 11, 2004.

  1. My Netflix copy of _The Three Stooges: Goofs on the Loose_ arrived today
    and the colorized shorts are a mixed bag. Through the use of the angle
    button on the remote, the Stooge episodes can be quickly switched
    between color-tinted and black and white. The novelty of the
    "ChromaChoice" effect quickly wears off because the so-called "color" is
    nothing more than a pastel tint job -- at least as far as _Men in
    Black_, _The Sitter Downers_ and _Playing the Ponies_ are concerned.
    However, the color on _Punch Drunks_ looks better than the color on the
    other three episodes and at times the color looks almost natural. This
    might have something to do with the overall condition of the source
    material because _Punch Drunks_ seems to have far less grain than the
    other episodes.

    There is a "ChromaChoice" featurette which details the extensive
    research that went into accurately recreating the colors of the
    original period set pieces. There is also an interesting discussion
    which tells how the computer process achieves the ChromaChoice results.

    My main objection to the colorized Stooge shorts is that there are only
    8 of them on the initial 2-disk set and half of them have already been
    released on DVD. Columbia TriStar should spend more time getting the
    unavailable Stooge episodes released and less time colorizing. According
    to the featurette, Columbia TriStar will be colorizing movies as well.
    Scenes from _The War Lover_ are shown and this feature will soon be
    released with black and white and colorized versions on the same DVD.
    More such DVDs are sure to come.
