the best comment regarding the thing 2011 prequel/remake, as in missed opportunity to make something original that expands the story, I've heard on recent Junkfood Cinema podcast: what if the prequel was "a la Sorcerer" story of how each of the men on Outpost 31 came to the job there. Now, that's a pitch!.

Looks like they're going to try and do another The Thing!
avatar
Gotta "love" the American sensibilities involving COVID. Keeping my fingers crossed it won't ruin Cinematic Void's 2021 January Giallo 35mm screenings.
avatar
Knowing our luck, we'll all be dead.

That really stinks, @alexp120 ! If it weren't for COVID, I would've seen a Joe Hisaishi/Ghibli concert by now. As it is, it's been postponed to the same time next year. But who knows what'll happen by then?
avatar
Bummer! The Royal Albert Hall has postponed these 'film-with-live-orchestra' concerts: Superman and SW:ROTJ with The London Symphony Orchestra. https://www.royalalberthall.com/about-th...postponed/

Anyone else hear about the Beastmaster situation rn? https://twitter.com/DonCoscarelli/status...89441?s=20
avatar
@Kynch it's full of nostalgia, especially the Sega vs Nintendo war
avatar
So much stuff I want to watch, another one added to the list @alleycat!

avatar
Nothing to do with video but netflix just released a series called High Score about the history of video game consoles and games
avatar
Mad Max 4k Dolby Vision just announced by Kino Lorber
avatar
@Serums Glad to hear it!
avatar
@tjmackey Thanks for asking! I got it sorted out.
avatar
@Serums, I know this was about a month ago, but did you still need someone who could speak/understand Korean?
avatar
I didn't even know there had been a re-edit! Woaft
avatar
Interesting. I wonder if the colors are accurate supposing it is referring to a 35mm theatrical print (though the fact that the footage appears to come from a VHS release isn't promising). Which reminds me, does anyone think Sorcerer would make an interesting regrade project if it color matched to this 35mm trailer scan: https://youtu.be/7JSRqjCgL9Q
avatar
!!! Highlights from THE WAGES OF FEAR (1978) re-edit of SORCERER (1977) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xLXEcXGZIc4
avatar
Hahah. I feel your pain.
avatar
Many ppl complaining about no atmos and only 1 complaining about no mono track on the full metal jacket 4k. Sad!
avatar
MacOS users. Think twice about installing/upgrading ffmpeg with homebrew. My build got to 5 hours before I gave up Undecided After, I downloaded a static build and had it installed within 2mins lol

When will they release War and Remembrance on Blu-ray!?

Great actor.

RIP Wilford Brimley

RIP Alan Parker.

@pipefan413 thanks for that! I got asked to help with a bonus feature for an upcoming release, it's clips from the Korean version of an old kung fu film (exclusive footage). There's about 2 minutes of dialogue dubbed in Korean, it's a VHS rip though so it's a bit noisy.
avatar
@Serums I'm most definitely not a Korean speaker but I managed to very slowly re-translate the Korean section of Snowpiercer to English so I may or may not be able to help depending on why you're asking
avatar
Out of curiosity, do we have any Korean speakers (or anyone who knows a bit) here?
avatar
Cheers PDB. I ended up using Postimage.org. Seems to do the trick Smile
avatar
God help me I use imgur, since my pics seem to last forever on there. I have pics 6 years old at this point that are still online.
avatar
What image hosting sites are you guys using for posting images here?
avatar
Not that I ever really contributed much Tongue
avatar
Wow it’s been like 26 months since I’ve been on here
avatar
I think we are just appearing on more and more search results and its bringing in some good people but more often hit-and-runners
avatar
Probably the most likely case in regards to The Matrix thread.
avatar
Yep. I'd hazard a guess that sometimes it's the same people under different usernames.
avatar
Is it me or have there been an excess of new folks asking for projects here lately?
avatar
Hello iam Dschafar from Bloodsuckerz Board @all have a nice Day
avatar
JerryShadoe was going to but disappeared from the site
avatar
was there ever someone reinserting the original Art-Scenes in "The Devil's Advocate" as an upscale into the BluRay?
avatar
^ You need to run the captured 48khz wav through besplit
avatar
Can anybody guide me to a guide for capturing AC3 sound? I've got a player, RF modulator, and the ability to record bit-perfect audio... but I can't figure out how to convert the 48/16 WAV to AC3. Any help would be amazing.
avatar
Ah
avatar
I really don't have any desire to be unkind but as far as I can see, @DMX, your entire contribution so far has been to say "hi" twice in the Shoutbox and ignore the site's rules and common courtesy by making your one and only post on the forum a request to have a download link sent to you, despite the project maker explicitly stating in the thread that they would only be sharing with active members of the forum, and somebody else being recently banned for similar behaviour in the very same thread.
avatar
Hi
avatar
So much for that then...
avatar
MYSPLEEN! That was it.
avatar
Good point pipefan, I'll delete mine.
avatar
Is it a good idea to be giving full names of private trackers on the front page of a public forum?
avatar
No, not torrentleech. Argh it's driving me crackers.
avatar
Guys; this is driving me nuts. What's the name of that private tracker site? It has a forum with a black skin and green logo? I can't find it in my history and it's driving me up the wall trying to remember.
avatar
Quick info: between around 01:00 and 05:00 AM on 14 July (CEST timezone, it's 13 July around afternoon-evening in USA) my forum host will be doing some server maintenance, and the site might be down for that time

Hi

RIP Ennio... Sad

Well his music will live forever at least.

Man that sucks.

I will not, therefore, be responding to said PM, as you clearly did not get the message when you were directed to reading the rules, @320Driver.
avatar
Note: posting one comment in a thread and then sending a PM asking for a download link is not really how things work around here.
avatar
You would have known this, if you'd read our rules... Wink
avatar
Thanks for the info Wink
avatar
@320Driver you need to be active and participate in threads before pms work.
avatar
Hi. WHy cant I send a private message to another user here?
avatar
Aw, damn.

RIP Joel Schumacher
avatar
Aww, I liked him in Alien. Sad

RIP Ian Holm

hi bigrob, i'm interested in the The Armageddon VCD, any chance for a copy
avatar
I'll do a list tomorrow
avatar
I’m interested to see what you got Bigrob
avatar
The Armageddon VCD is a bootleg which uses the VHS screener as its source. You get the warning go across the screen at the bottom during the film. You can imagine what the quality is like haha. The Mission Impossible 2 disc should be interesting as that had changed when it arrived on home video IIRC
avatar
Picked up a bag of VCD's today off Freecycle. Mostly 90's films. Some look suspect but some look legit. If there is any interest, happy to create a thread and back them up to my google drive if anyone wants a copy
avatar
avatar
My laserdisc player woes continue as I've completing given up on the Sony player working consistently for bit-perfect recording. I now have a Panasonic with RF Out and a AC-3 demodulator coming. Looking forward to ripping everything in sight.
avatar
The current episode has Criterion's Lee Kline, talking about film restoration, even a tiny bit about the borrowing Scorsese and Taratino's 35mm prints of the Great Escape to help with that restoration.
avatar
Continuing his great interaction with his fans: Roger Deakins and his wife have a great podcast called Team Deakins. It very informative on the world of movie making
avatar
yes, precisely
avatar
and down!
avatar
and back up!
avatar
And they're down again
avatar
To all over at TheStarWarsTrilogy forums. They are back up!
avatar
I'm curious about this but I feel like maybe posting a thread about it is overkill... y'know the team that is not Team Negative1 that does 35mm scans with very little cleanup? So, Jurassic Park, The Matrix, Aladdin, etc. etc. Do they have a name or anything? the only username or whatever that I've seen explicitly tagged anywhere is on the Raiders of the Lost Ark scan which is attributed to litemakr... but for all I know that could be because that one scan is from litemakr and it's tagged that way because none of the others are
avatar
Seems it was a software glitch that banned everyone. All sorted now though
avatar
Yep. I've been banned as well. Definitely something going on there.
avatar
Yeah, something cheezy is going on with blu-ray.com. I've been banned too. I think they've been hacked.
avatar
I've been banned multiple times on blu-ray.com. Nice site, crap admins (a lot of them anyway). Not a fan of how that site is run.
avatar
Wow. Woke up to find that i was banned from blu-ray.com for absolutely no reason whatsoever and no way to contact anyone
avatar
I find it hilarious that the new BD release of "The Devil's Honey" is a clear example of how automated clean-ups can go wrong ( https://caps-a-holic.com/c.php?a=1&x=468...0&i=1&go=1 )
avatar
Oh I didn't mean to question your assertion that professionals do do it. I'm sure some do. I've seen professionals do the darndest things in general so there's that. Smile
avatar
So would I. But the point is that it's a trade-off. Professionals can and do use minimal blending, on occasion, when transferring silent films to home video.
avatar
I'd take judder over blended frames any day, heh
avatar
Apart from judder...
avatar
Well I was being rhetorical. I just meant to say I think it's not a good reason. Nothing wrong with good old duplicating frames.
avatar
I see 'Spider-Man: Far from Home' is now available in its OAR
