The Arrival (1996) [Fundamental Collection™ #008]
From the back cover: "Many fans of the movie noted that the Blu-ray edition of The Arrival has some issues with color & contrast. Also, due to excessive digital noise reduction, there's a lack of grain.
For this project, the video track of the Blu-ray was used. Contrast and colors were fine tuned thanks to the master used for the DVD, and, finally, a proper grain plate from real 35mm film was added.
English main audio track is the DTS-HD MA 7.1 24 bit, plus an extra track in Dolby Digital 5.1 from the same master used for the Special Edition laserdisc; French, Italian, Spanish 5.1 and German 2.0 Dolby Digital tracks are included; there is also a commentary track not found in any other DVD or BD.
Five subtitles tracks are included as well: English, French, German, Italian and Spanish."
