So WW, who is doing all this "stealing" you talk about? I would suggest it is ... you.
avatar
And now ... the U.S. Constitution (Article I): "to promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts, by securing for limited Times to Authors and Inventors the exclusive Right to their respective Writings and Discoveries."
avatar
Ah that's better. Okay, where was I? Oh, yes ... WW wrote: "My take on the antiquated Public Domain statute is not the same as many others who freely squeeze every dime out of Public Domain films. ... Just because a film has fallen into the Public Domain does not mean someone does not own it. ... PUBLIC DOMAIN is a license to steal other peoples work without paying them royalties. This includes music and books along with audio visual subjects. ... In plain english, the US government under the Public Domain statutes steals your property- movies-books-songs and gives them away freely to every country in the world for FREE. ... The PUBLIC DOMAIN statute must be abolished and the owners of music, films and other intellectual property works must be allowed to keep their creations and leave them to their children."
avatar
Page 1 and I thought WW sounded like another HERO! Page 4 and that shock EXPLODED my big bronze head off my shoulders!! Forgive my pause while my bigger bronze body goes on all fours across an island of Crete searching for the rest of me ...

n.b. don't confuse that guy with the actor of the same name.

He basically got prosecuted for what all those ebayers selling copies of despecialized are doing.
avatar
"All these exchanges, whenever they did a major junk, I got to go in and cherry-pick everything. I might take 20 or 30 prints, and pay them 15 or 20 bucks for each. And then I'd sell them for 75 [each]." But Wise was getting more than $US75 ($100). Records obtained by Gizmodo show that he was making as much as $US575 ($763) per copy back in 1966.
avatar
I agree BronzeTitan. Copyright law as well as trademark law is ridiculous the way we have it.
avatar
Those guys were heroes. They saved much of our cultural history. The FBI should've tracked down those heroes and presented them before The President for decoration! But everyone in government has itchy palms for Hollywood's big bucks. Paid-off Congress voted to further alter and extend the "copyright laws" for Hollywood to keep them forever. What is it now ... 1 or 2 lifetimes of the original author? Legal theft! Copyright law was instituted to offer government protection, for a short time, for the author to profit from his work. IN EXCHANGE, the work would thereafter become "public domain" for the spread and use of those works to ... if I may coin a phrase ... "make America great (again)" and be of value to the rest of the world! Instead, we've got a POLICE STATE tracking down heroes for fines and prison. Disgraceful.

@poita: from what I can see on DVD beaver, Mishima looks beautiful
avatar
Wondering?
avatar
Anyone tried to overlay both copies of Predator? I was wondering.
avatar
Mishima: A Life In Four Chapters is out now on Blu-Ray, I hope criterion did a good job on it.

You do know you can write your own CSS code just edit my css code if you're not satisfied, yes? Tongue

Looks good. Thanks! Remember, anytime you need to do more work ... I'm there! Big Grin
avatar
I've updated the userstyle, the logo will now only "turn on" once per page. And I also made some improvements to both the graphics. https://imgur.com/a/vd3yt5a https://userstyles.org/styles/160165 I think I'm finished with it now. Enjoy.

Okay, for free then ... https://s31.postimg.cc/ncjuw0h7f/Fan_Res_logo.gif (the 1st post apparently got lost ... or so they say ... $$$ Wink )

@all - Just tried some other PostImage images and they're not there. ... Sorry! Sorry! See what I mean? I just get caried away. Sorry! Sorry everyone!
avatar
@all - Hmmm. PostImage access seems to be timing out. I hope I didn't burn it out ... that last GIF was pretty hot. Shocked
avatar
@Valeyard - Oh, I thought it was to change the FanRes defauts for everyone. Rolleyes But good to have those extra options available. Thanks!
avatar
@all - Oops, silly me ... pressed the wrong ("send") button. Blush -- But for a few $$, I can tell you where to get some of the real stuff. Dodgy
avatar
@BronzeTitan - if that's what you want. https://userstyles.org/styles/160165/sma...for-fanres Big Grin (select customise settings when installing).

I don't want to shower with me. My shower is rubbish.
avatar
Those flirty slavic girls want to shower you with ooomph too, lol.

That link shows me a lot of flirty slavic girls.
avatar
@Valeyard - Actually the Monty Python finger is "silly". Big Grin Something more like this probably is better -- https://s31.postimg.cc/oxokac863/Fan_Res_logo.gif ... I just grabbed the demo pix and mashed them down into a few frames with various lightness & repeats & timings. I expect you have the source artwork to recreate something at higher quality. I still like the idea of the original size for the main page and the smaller (non-animated) size for every other page. But, go with your best design. Smile
avatar
@Jetrell Fo: *pfff * Copy that. *pfff * https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qTNWSJ2NKy4 See? PacMan works!
avatar
@Valeyard - Cool! Monty Python tapping next? Big Grin Really wasn't expecting that, but an animated .GIF file set to a run-once, with suitable pauses (to allow a user to see the setup), might complete the coolness.
avatar
@BronzeTitan "pfff" Perimeter check done. All is clear. "pfff" "pfff" Moving on to next sector. Tower is still quiet, over. "pfff"
avatar
My Stylish installation must be F'd up. I even tried to install it directly from within the plugin, still doesn't do anything. Sad
avatar
@BronzeTitan - bulb off as requested: https://i.imgur.com/1Zh9xR1.png I haven't changed the size of the logo at all, it's just scaled down by CSS, and converted to a transparant background logo.
avatar
LOL ... Who says the Shoutbox is not fun? (Can someone make it a FPS with mouse controller? Again, not volunteering. Smile )
avatar
"pfff" Copy that. "pfff" "pfff" Got eyes in the sky and boots on the ground. Tower is a null worry, over. "pfff"
avatar
@Jetrell Fo: *pfff * Negative that. Repeat, negative. *pfff * ... *pfff * Videogame are good for the psyche. *pfff * ... *pfff * Watch that sniper fire from the tower! *pfff * ... *pfff * Do you copy? *pfff * Big Grin
avatar
BTW, nice logo fit into the background(s). The big one looks good as the Main Entrance logo, but the smaller ones are nice for all the rest of the "sub-pages". Adjust the main logo to match, and I'd give that a double-thumbs-up!
avatar
How about a motion logo? A .SWF player. With the bulb off and a Monty Python finger that comes down and taps it on the top and it springs to light! And it lights up the 3-dimensional title letters! And music! Something cool! Some inspirational! With a repeat button ... for infinitely playing music! Not that I'm volunteering ... Smile
avatar
I just updated it with some improvements (namely I tweaked the logo graphic). I just tested it in both Chrome and FireFox. Maybe you installed the theme but the Stylish extension is disabled?
avatar
@Valeyard Good idea. Sadly I can't install it for some reason. When I click Install it says "Installed", but when I reload it offers the Install button again and this site still looks normal

Pac Man Syndrome should probably be on the list too. Video games rot the brain ... maybe even make you go blind due to joystick addiction, lol.

Vinegar Syndrome gets my vote
avatar
"oxidation" should be on that list too ... (twitch twitch) ...
avatar
We could use a "bad words" list that members could vote on to add (or remove if future votes cause it's total to drop below 50%). Frankly, I'd vote-out "corrosion" ... (shudder) ...
avatar
I'm calling Dumbledore in on this one. Maybe he can create a list of places that should never be mentioned due to a selective lack of humor on their parts?

Why did my post get removed? I didn't say anything wrong about anything. It reminds me of a place that apparently can no longer be mentioned by only some of us I guess. Sad

Okay, okay ... such touchy people! I've been ordered to the front of the class & they won't let me write those naughty words even in my punishment ... https://s31.postimg.cc/69jc1l8cr/Bronze_...gy.com.jpg

hmm, just thinking ... will more "shouts" disappear ...
avatar
@poita - Should we just skip UHD and, instead, invest in the next GREAT format (downward compatible, of course)? Otherwise I'll have to over-book museum gigs just to pay the bills! Woo
avatar
So ... we are STILL acting like CRUMBS to the OT-agent PACMEN? -- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8n_zloZwesk
avatar
I still have just few UHD BDs, and I assume, with price at the moment I will just buy some newer movies in 4K, if the movie seems interesting enough to pay about 75 to 150 percent more, compared to the BD...
avatar
Some 4K BD's are better. A Few Good Men and the first 2 Harry Potter films look better than the BD.
avatar
My problem with Braveheart is not the color depth, but the face paint of William Wallace...
avatar
There are some horrendous UHD releases, not many but some. Dredd, 3:10 to Yuma, Oblivion, all worse than the Bluray Edition.
avatar
When they are converted to 8bit, they usually look like the regular BD version with less clipped whites and some slight colour differences.
avatar
Be careful when looking at UHD caps. They never look right on a PC screen, and often look a lot better on a properly setup HDR UHD TV
avatar
avatar
I have not seen a single UHD title but from screen caps I am not sold at all they look quite washed out. http://caps-a-holic.com/c.php?a=1&x=466&...&i=10&go=1
avatar
holy s... I think I will pass on the Braveheart UHD BD: http://caps-a-holic.com/c.php?a=1&x=388&...0&i=6&go=1 check out the facepaint... O.O

On the darker side of entertainment, "the Superman curse" https://www.mirror.co.uk/tv/tv-news/supe...o-12387108 has struck again http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/201...at-69.html
avatar
So the Die Hard 4K BD has a stereo mix in DTS-HD, but it appears to be a fold down of the 5.1, so the LD audio is still preferable. Image looks pretty good though, a definite upgrade from the old BD.
avatar
@BronzeTitan - my favourite scene in Jurassic World: https://i.imgur.com/hhUEJSe.jpg (SPOILER!) Big Grin
avatar
@Valeyard - Awww ... you should've warned about the spoilers! I didn't know about the evil green-screens. Sad
avatar
@poita - Aussie humor? Big Grin

Laserdiscs the size of Tractor wheels with UHD and Audio that will blow your ear drums
avatar
Ok But they must be better. No super8 film-fade (from that famous film company ... doh!) and perfect-read laserdisc electronics that doesn't cost $$$,$$$ !!
avatar
Waiting for the laserdisc format resurrection, in glorious analog UHD!
avatar
Seriously though, they really need to take a cue from the gun industry and make it savage-sexy (like the AR-15, a common rifle tricked-out to look wicked). Hey Kodak! Try something like this: http://collectiblend.com/Cameras/images/...-Super.jpg
avatar
Nice find, SW! ANALOG IS THE FUTURE (we should've known better)! In related news, George Lucas, ever the innovator, will film his next Star Wars movie in Super8! "This will give use even more resolution," he said to our reporter. "It will easily upstage our digital movies." - Fakenews Networks.
avatar
The price for that Super 8 camera is completely insane. What are they thinking?
avatar
Great read, I'm excited about this Super 8 resurgence, thanks for sharing SW.
