But knowing Nolan I doubt it will change for the home release.

Oh, jeez, that's unfortunate. They might compress the crap out of the centre channel and call it a day, if anything
avatar
I saw the film, and it's pretty subpar Nolan. The mix is terrible because apperantly you're not supposed to understand everything until a certain point. Even knowing that doesn't exactly make it better.
avatar
ah
avatar
I saw the movie in faux-IMAX twice. It's hilarious just how much the dialogue is indecipherable. Combine that with the dream-like elliptical editing that Nolan has leaned harder and harder into... It's no surprise that people come out of the movie confused.

This article is pretty frustrating, as it's not just tenet. Basically every department that has something to do with the sound is blaming someone else for the mix's shortcomings.
avatar
The bit about IMAX cameras having been stated as the explanation seems a little bit disingenuous, since the source it cites isn't really saying that at all: it just says that Nolan doesn't like doing ADR (which I already talked about above re. Bane in TDKR), and then explains that there is a challenge with using IMAX cameras for quiet dialogue moments so they used an alternative camera to shoot those. It doesn't say that the IMAX camera was used anyway thus dialogue is hard to hear...
avatar
Maybe I'm not giving the author enough credit but it sure seems like they're massively oversimplifying to the point of misinformation, either because they feel a need to dumb it down (or maybe the editor does) or because they just straight up don't understand it themselves. EDIT: Actually I think it might be that they don't know what the hell they're talking about because... "This article was amended on 4 September 2020. An earlier version incorrectly said the dynamic range of TVs was “more extreme” than in cinemas. This has been corrected."
avatar
Pretty certain that Nolan only mixes in 5.1 as that's what can be stored on a film print. I'm surprised he hasn't tried to resurrect 6-track mag
avatar
That's exactly what I would assume yep! And aye I thought the same when I started learning about 70 mm, but I guess one picks one's battles
avatar
I don't think the striping equipment for 70mm exists anymore, the studios dropped mag as soon as they could once DTS coded prints were possible
avatar
Aye, you're probably right ;_;
avatar
Hey, is postimages.org screwed right now?
avatar
avatar
Jeez, nearly 16 hours now. Hope that's not a sign that it's done. I have so much hosted there hahah (UPDATE: Thankfully it eventually reappeared)
avatar
Might be worth downloading them and storing them on Mega/OneDrive/Dropbox
avatar
Quick question; Does anyone here have any of the Warner Bros. UK VHS releases of Highlander 1? I'm wanting to check something but don't have a VHS set up any more.

Here is a tiny Dragon's Lair video game cabinet with a built in replica laserdisc player: https://youtu.be/4VQPEr2Za1Y?t=380

Neat! I might get one for Christmas if they have any then.
