It's a guy who does 1080p SDR encodes from some HDR UHD stuff
avatar
Any what?
avatar
You could try and see if there are any SWTYBLZ encodes
avatar
Does anyone know if I can find downscales of the 4K transfers of the Harry Potter films?
avatar
Fight Club was an early 5.1EX mix
avatar
Had Fight Club a new mix for home theatrical releases? On the German BD with the DTS-ES 6.1 Audio it is explicitly mentioned that it is the original theatrical mix.
avatar
at least on eBay someone seems to sell a full screen version https://www.ebay.de/itm/362872596219
avatar
Have the Harry Potter movies not been given remastered Blu-rays?
avatar
I'm also looking to find a DVD of Breathless, the remake with Richard Gere, where the open matte original 4/3 DVD version is said to feature extra nudity Smile But those don't seem to be available in used stores.
avatar
That's interesting. I'm wondering if an IMAX like composite would be possible. I'm going to track down a copy, the P&S DVD goes for pretty cheap.
avatar
I'm pretty sure the credits+opening title sequences on the Brosnan films were shot Super 35, so they could be shown in 4:3 without cutting off names or vertically squeezing. Die Another Day allegedly had some sequences shot in Super 35 such as the helicopter shots, and apparently the CG FX shots were rendered in 1.78.

avatar
Mostly on the left side, if I recall. To the point where it just says "OTHER DAY".
avatar
When I rented that one a couple years ago, I recall most of the feature being notoriously cropped.
avatar
Does anyone has ever bought Die Another Day 007 DVD in full screen? I'm trying to find out if it's open matte, or just cropped. Thank you.
avatar
They've predicted everything!
avatar
Hah, didn't realize they had predicted Fox would be bought: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ltQ_2by2UY
avatar
I'm sure we will find out this has all been predicted in the Simpsons at some point Wink
avatar
Despite the fact that it's now the 21st Century?
avatar
So they're calling it 20th Century Pictures again?
avatar
Disney has zero respect for anything, nothing new
avatar
It’s a shame
avatar
We aren’t losing the 20th Century part just the Fox part
avatar
True but the name Fox from Fox film goes back over a hundred
avatar
Not quite over a hundred - 20th Century Fox was created in the '30s with the merger of 20th Century Pictures and Fox Film
avatar
Thus ending a studio name more than a hundred years old
avatar
Disney is removing the name fox from 20th Century Fox

avatar
The original release is pretty bad. I did a quick colour correction on it myself because is looked so bad but I never rendered it out as a final video.
avatar
There are 2 versions of Knock Off available in Germany There was a 'remastered' one released recently. Ive not seen it but I read it uses the same master just altered / improved upon.
avatar
There is only a german Blu
avatar
Love that movie. Tsui Hark rules!
avatar
Anyone familiar with the movie Knock Off with Van Damme? Apparently it has no Blu-Ray. At least no Blu-Ray released in the United States. The picure quality is awful. It definitely needs a remaster
avatar
@Chewtobacca Thanks.

Once you start participating you can start PMing
avatar
Hi MrTroidex. You can’t PM since you are currently at lurker level
avatar
Why I can't send pm for anyone?
avatar
I also confirm. Team Blu have used the remastered BR for their release. My go-to since then.
avatar
@CSchmidlapp yes it was my go to for a while, but tbh I haven't really watched it at home since catching it on 35mm
avatar
Oh, sorry. But, where i can get?
avatar
@MrTroidex. Hi bud. Have a quick read of the forum rules Smile
avatar
Anyone could send me the download link for best version of The Terminator (1984) pm, please?
avatar
I am searching for the relevant informations, too. I also thought it was pre-remaster. But I also might be wrong on that. Smile Time is speed-running by.
avatar
Is Team blu your go to zoidberg?
avatar
The Team Blu version I got was in 2014 so you might be right. Always was under the impression it pre-dated the Remastered BD for some reason! Perhaps Im getting confused with release's. EDIT: Im re reading the team blu threads.
avatar
Guys I'm watching the Team Blu and it's definitely based on the remastered blu. Are we talking about the same project?
avatar
Although it worth noting that the remasterd (4K) Blu is considered theatrically accurate. Just have to mux the synced mono to it.
avatar
Yes the Team Blu release is from an earlier master. My (new) go to version is by Dek Rollins. https://originaltrilogy.com/topic/The-Te...412/page/1
avatar
I thought the Team Blu release used the remastered blu ray but with colour correction
avatar
Personally I still can say, that IO like the Team Blu release, because it had the mono audio. https://originaltrilogy.com/topic/Termin...s/id/17330 but it is really hard to say "it is the best" because the video souce they used got outdated by the newer official BluRay master release.
avatar
Hi! Which is the best version of The Terminator (1984)?
avatar
@Evit IT'S WHAT IT IS Tongue
avatar
Has anyone posted this video with clips from Scorsese's The Irishman with the actors' faces "de-aged" with DeepFake? People in the comments are already begging for the whole film done this way https://youtu.be/dyRvbFhknRc
avatar
Happy 2020!
avatar
Merry Christmas to all of you!
avatar
Merry Christmas!
avatar
I never said it was unheard of. We're not talking about little tweaks to re-releases or home video releases, with Cats it's a day one patch to fix unfinished VFX
avatar
@zoidberg the effect is the same as re-editing, and it's not unheard of. Disney re-animated certain scenes in Aladdin and Lion King for the IMAX releases for example.
avatar
Why are the protons streams purple in the new ghostbusters trailer? This bothers me immensely
avatar
Wasn't someone murdered on set?!
avatar
It'll never replace the 1998 version.
avatar
By all accounts it's a hot mess
avatar
Slightly reministcent of Sonic, heh. Though those people caught it earlier, thank god. Will be interesting to compare the old and new version.
avatar
It hasn't been re-edited, VFX have been re-rendered/altered
avatar
What's Cats? The move isn't "unheard of", 35mm films have been re-cut before after release, for example Exorcist II: The Heretic. In fact way back in the day it wasn't uncommon for cinemas to do their own editing to shorten lengthy films by removing the most unnecessary parts. TV does this today, one of my favourite TV shows was shortened by the local broadcaster to better fit the 1hr time slot, I was not happy.
avatar
avatar
PM me for more details Ok
avatar
So what'll I owe you?
avatar
I don't think there'll be too much of a problem there; it's in very good condition.
avatar
I could, Frank. Depending on the state of the LP, can't guarantee the best quality of course.
avatar
avatar
So you'll be able to do it for me?
avatar
It would probably be easier and less expensive indeed Tongue Here's an example of my gear in action: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BJT0NETbVsY
avatar
Uh... couldn't I just send it to someone for them to record?
avatar
Ideally an used Technics direct driven turntable from the early '80s with an S shaped tonearm, a VM540ML cartridge for optimal results, any big brand amp from the '80s uses a very good preamp and will output a nice flat sound. The new BS they sell you with so called lamps and what not are coloring the sound and you don't want that for capturing. A simple Focusrite intrface will get the job done. Finally, clean your record or get it ceaned ultrasonically from a local record store if possible.
avatar
Which ones should I get?
avatar
@FrankT The simplest way is a USB turntable, but the quality will be nothing much. Best way: Get a good turntable, good needle, good phono preamp and a good audio interface, then record.
avatar
I want to transfer an LP vinyl to digital. What's the best way to do that?
avatar
Come and See, Janus new restoration trailer! https://vimeo.com/379352025

Mark Hamill reckoned Luke had a chance to hookup with Leia in the next film: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Ubz7PKKdvU (1980 interview).

Interesting interview with Mark Hamil and Carrie Fisher: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l3lbWba7xjQ

The arts are under attack! Freedom of expression is being squelched!
avatar
Yup, and if you mark it as "for kids", you can't get comments and monetization options very restricted and iirc less recommendations too. Bravo Youtube, like always. Smile
avatar
Happy Black Friday everyone! Big Grin
avatar
And for now, I have a bad joke in mind... Big Grin
avatar
I refuse!
avatar
For anyone that uploads to Youtube, the FTC has said channel owners must comply with COPPA. Any videos, e.g. Disney trailers, that are directed to kids (children 12yrs and under) must now be marked as "for kids".

D+ has been hacked!
avatar
Also, Dumbo has not been censored like early reports indicated
avatar
Beauty and the Beast on D+ is apparently a new master with improved colors, but the background at the end of "Something there" is the wrong one, from the BD (which *has* been fixed for the 3D BD)
avatar
It's a work in progress
avatar
One step forward, two steps back Smile
avatar
Hopefully it's the ONLY change.
avatar
The fifth definite version of this scene, as George always imagined it! ... lol
avatar
avatar
so apparently the original and prequel trilogy are on Disney+ in 4K UHD and Dolby Vision as well
