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but it is really hard to say "it is the best" because the video souce they used got outdated by the newer official BluRay master release.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
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?

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

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". See: https://www.ftc.gov/news-events/blogs/bu...d-children https://youtu.be/-JzXiSkoFKw

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
avatar
They lost the original audio?! When was this??
avatar
Does that video include them losing the original audio?

People keep paying to see all these reboots and remakes. All they're doing is feeding the monster. Once Disney+ sinks its teeth in, dark times are ahead

We've got to stop them!

@willarob yeah saw that. Already noticed that there a no fox titles on the line up at The Prince Charles Cinema in London.

Hulu gets the R rated stuff
avatar
I hate what Disney has become in the last few decades. I just hope they will crash and burn and be bought up by someone who actually cares about cinema. Or maybe get a better CEO that turns it around, though that's doubtful. They are a true disgrace.
avatar
R rated films won't be on Disney+ so they will be gone
avatar
It's a bit shouty at first, but there are some good points here and there
avatar
avatar
I saw an interesting opinion piece about how Disney's endgame is cutting out theatres entirely and having everything on Disney+
avatar
As every joke it's supposed to convey something serious. By blocking classics R rated films from being shown, not having them on Disney+ and not having them on video anymore, Disney eliminates the competition, and the door is open for all movies to be family theme park rides film. The extinction of cinema is coming.
avatar
It was a joke LOL
avatar
@Stamper. That's what PDB already said, he didn't say anything about theme park rides, not sure why you brought that up.
avatar
PDB you mean That's a terrible blow for people who love seeing films on the big screen instead of theme park rides. LOL
avatar
The disney vault was a pet peeve of mine as a kid, I dont see that philosphy driving up demand.
avatar
I don't think this was TCF's fault! They were made to do it!
avatar
Knowing companies like 20th Century FOX and Disney this isn't really surprising. They do shady things all the time
avatar
I don't get it.
avatar
@Chewtobacca. I had to google! Hahahahahahahahaha
avatar
Luchtigern is fallen.
avatar
@Disney. But.....why?
avatar
I knew it! They're trying to stunt our intellectual growth. Keep us in FIELDS!!
avatar
That's a terrible blow for people who love seeing older films on the big screen
