Submission + - Sony Atones for Early Blu-ray Sins

An anonymous reader writes: When it was originally released on Blu-ray's launch day back in June 2006, 'The Fifth Element' seemed to represent all that was wrong with the next-gen format. Featuring a sub-standard video transfer, fans and reviewers alike agreed that the disc looked no better than standard DVD. A year later, riding a wave of good press for the Blu-ray format, Sony has returned to the scene of the crime, offering up a new remastered Blu-ray edition of 'The Fifth Element' as the format's first re-issued disc, and even going so far as to offer a free disc replacement program for consumers who felt burned the time around. In a just-posted review, High-Def Digest compares the two editions — complete with screengrabs from both.
