Have you leaned anymore about what the digital remastering means? I know one thing it means is that Fran's ringwraith screams are amplified to a high level of terrifying.

I wonder if with the visuals they just focused on clarifying certain things within the frame or the whole frame. I'm wondering if text over all seemed to be more bolded because I focused on those details, or if they really did just zero in on clarifying those particular details.

Ah, there you go: what actually is digital remastering? It would be helpful to know what the editor technicians actually do, other than sharpening the images where possible.

I thought the screams were pretty deafening, yes. Someone remarking on the screening at TORN mentioned how unbearably loud they found a lot of the sound effects (like in the battle scenes) in FOTR, although they loved being able to hear so much more of the dialogue. So you ask a good quesiton: like the sharpening or highlighting of aspects of the visual material -- or so it seems -- in the audio material, is it a matter of accentuating/making more distinct certain things, or is it a sharpening/accentuating of everything on the audio track? I will say that online geek reviews had nothing but excellent things to say about the sound of the remastered films, whereas there were a few criticisms of the visual work.
