I don't get the complaint about 4x3 pillarbox? That's the original aspect ratio. They definitely should not crop them to get 16x9.

Also, the great thing about these reworks is that the originals are high quality 35mm film, so the HD quality is excellent. As far as the colorization goes, I agree it's unnecessary, but at least the quality is much better than it was when it was first tried years ago; and, as you say, you can turn the color off.
