Just watched Goldfinger on my PS3. It was the first Ultimate Edition DVD that came to hand for comparison. The picture quality is pretty damn good for a 48-year-old film. It's definitely an improvement on the UE, which itself was a vast improvement over the SE. I think it's taken from the same source as the UE, which was a 4K transfer from the original print, albeit with extensive frame-by-frame clean-up and colour correction. Contrast is better, blacks blacker, edges crisper and generally more detail visible on my screen.
Extras on the Goldfinger disc seem to be the same as on the UE DVD, but there is a new extra disc of special features.
As soon as I get a BluRay drive for my PC, I'll tray and post screenshots. Should be in the next couple of weeks.
This being an early birthday present, I'm well pleased so far.
