Curly, Larry And Moe Now In Color
(AP) The DVD era is resurrecting the great colorization debate of the 1980s, and at the heart of the matter are Curly, Larry and Moe.

Sony's Columbia TriStar home-video unit is releasing two Three Stooges DVDs that allow viewers to watch the original black-and-white or digitally colorized versions.

Purists consider it desecration, while Sony executives say the process can help introduce Hollywood classics to young audiences reluctant to watch anything in black and white.
This is a total disgrace! Anyone who buys a colorized Three Stooges DVD should be moiderized!

The picture above is HERESY! Down with colorization!

Freedom of choice

Freedom from choice
Is what you want

People are shitting themselves to death
Crap so much they fail to take a breath
But even when their kids are starvin'
They thought Trump would throw them Charmin.

Well, I'm 100% opposed to the colorization of the 1980s. That process sucked, big time.

If the new process isn't any better, then I'm opposed to it, too. The new process is supposed to be better, with fewer errors that detract from the overall presentation. Maybe it is better, and maybe not.

I like watching the Stooges in black and white. If I saw them in color, it might be all right, or it might not. (My guess is that the novelty would wear off quickly.) Fortunately, I would at least have the choice of going back to black and white. The ability to choose is something of a redeeming virtue.

Curiously, one of the opponents to colorization is George Lucas. Let me say that again. One of the guys opposed to changing works from their original appearance is George ("Let's modify 'Star Wars'") Lucas. If I buy "Star Wars" on DVD, I don't have the choice of seeing the original version; I have to see it with all that extra digitally added crap.

Good point. :lol: I still have the original trilogy on VHS, perhaps you can find that online.

Better yet, on EBAY there are laserdisc versions recorded to DVD's...

I like the choice. You MIGHT have something to whine about, if there was ONLY colour versions available. But there isn't. So you can watch it in stupid ugly B&W and other, more intelligent humans can watch it in colour.

So quit your pathetic plea for attention, and watch it in your precious outdated format. :P

But seriously, the thing I do like is the choice. You have cherised memories of this show being in black and white, so you really don't want to see it in colour. I'm 90 odd years younger than you, and so have never seen more than about 3 seconds of 3 stooges footage at a time and would happily watch it in either colour or black and white. If lucas (here after referred to as "the insane fuck-head who insists on raping my childhood memories with his eating-his-own-shit fucked-in-the-head craziness. THE FUCK!") had realeased his new zoopy version of star wars and the orginial, I would be happy. I would only watch the original, and would mock the younger generation who only watches the fucked up zoopy version, but I would be happy.

So thank your lucky stars they aren't raping YOUR cherised memories and at least leaving you with a choice.

We tend to scoff at the beliefs of the ancients. But we can't scoff at them personally, to their faces, and this is what annoys me.

Colourization?


AGAIN???

Didn't we already show this to be a bad idea when they talked about colourizing the beginning of Wizard of Oz?

I make this pledge here and now: the minute they colourize Psycho, I'm dressing up like my mother and going monkey-shit on Hollywood.

Yep, shot for shot (with a few added graphic shots though - Hitchcock didn't show (or even imply) Norman masturbated while watching Marion through the peephole.

Yes, it was pretty bad. As well as no reason for it.

I experienced the 1980s... in Oberlin, Ohio; Stanford, California; and Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Where's this Color, anyway? I have friends in Colorado...

Why don't they do the opposite? Some movies would look better with lack of color, it would give them an "underground" vibe.

The colour doesn't make a blind bit of difference (Oh ho! Two puns for the price of one!). The Three/Four/17.5 Stooges are still nnnnyuck-yuck-yucky regardless. (Oh God help me, I've caught Shemp's Disease! WhyIorta..)

I know, but there are a bunch of those "art" films that are in black and white and are utter, meaningless crap that suppose to mean something.

I think of it in the same way a Mike Myers' old SNL sketch about Dieter that was all in black and white.

If you remove color from bad movies and make them mean a litte less, they can probably win awards at indie festivals.

Some of the earliest Stooge films with Ted Healy were actually in color. I recall seeing one with Curly billed as Jerry (possibly Gerome) Howard. Might've been Soup to Nuts.
If it's good enough for Nelson, it's quite good enough for me.
