Well.. "new" PC starts getting set up... Still many applications not installed, but it makes a solid impression... 4th gen i7, 32GB Ram, GeForce gtx 980 Titan, 4TB HDD for data... 500gb hdd for system...
@PDB I could handle the poor visual quality...but even in this extended version the quality of the film itself was pretty hard to watch.
Congrats @MrBrown. @HippieDalek Its more the movie itself than the quality of the video Wink. Honestly the extended is better than what we got,,,
@PDB Yeah, the extended version is a better film, but it's still not a good film. The effort of the fans to find and restore this though is utterly incredible! They get my full respect Smile
Im pretty certain SMB was never at any point of its production anything but a flaming hot mess. Its hardwired into its DNA
@zoidberg As someone who has spent far too much of their spare time on Highlander 2 I think it's fair to say that I can appreciate a hot mess Smile
SMB and HL2 do have the commonality of coming up with a gonzo concept and running hard with them. I do appreciate that Smile
I don't mind watching VHS rips at all but they went a little far in "restoring" some scenes with the filter and looks horrible in motion. Also is the aspect ratio wrong on the video? I think a 4:3 flag on the container is needed to correct it.
Despite being a stinker of a movie, I do love how dedicated the fans are. And the SMB Archive website reminds me of the good old days of the web. I do own the BD and watched it last year and was tough to get through but I still have nostalgia for it. Must watch the extended version soon
Nice to see everyone's new projects coming along. Didn't plan on taking a break from Fanres but work picked up and life got in the way.
Who knew the original Rancor was an ape:
As far as video game movies go, I'll take SMB over ANY of the Resident Evil films. And MK '95 still reigns supreme as the best video game movie imo
RIP Richard Donner :’( Superman and The Goonies are some of my absolute favourites
And the Lethal Weapon franchise Sad
I saw that also. Ironically I had just watched the first two LWs and Goonies. RIP

Does anyone know Czech/Slovak? I'm looking to buy some DVDs and I'm having trouble finding them...
And if anyone knows Polish they could help me track down a VHS/TV-rip...
