Latest year I received like thousand spam posts on my blog, and few dozens real posts... now, after including captcha, almost no spam at all... I hate captcha, but it is so useful! Wink

It's probably going to be as successful as their color grading of GBU
avatar
Yes: while the restoration was done by L'Immagine Ritrovata, the colour grading was done by Kino Lorber.
avatar
I assume it’s a green-yellow remaster like the recently released Fistful.
avatar
Anybody knows anything about Kino Lorber's release of For a few dollars more that has just been announced?

I dont know all that much about machine learning, but from the limited experience I have with it, it needs to be trained on a representative data set. For example I don't think this would work very well as-is, because it's trained on losslessly downsampled images, whereas a lot of the content we might be interested in upsampling is A. compressed and B. already initially sampled at a resolution that is low. Photoshop has a ML-supported upscaling algorithm and it works the best on high quality (low compression) downsampled images. It doesn't work very well on images that are noticeably compressed and low resolution to begin with, it tends to just amplify the compression artifacts like blocking,.
avatar
Yeah, you can use ESRGAN, but it won't work very well with movies unless you get big data set with movie frames and you'll teach your neural network for long time.
avatar
@IcePrick Hahahahahahahahahaha

avatar
You think we might be able to use something like this in upscaling?

My brother got married this year and had a package stolen value around $150 with wedding-related goods that he had to re-order. Angry

Where I live, package stealing has become an epidemic

That is pretty great.

Hope, even if he loves the shorter american cut of Braindead more, that he restores the unrated Version.

@MrBrown those poster prices are insane!

If I am not wrong it should be labeled as Teaser. Well the teaser Poster with the WTC now really starts to count as collectible.. https://www.ebay.com/itm/301568183707 https://www.ebay.com/itm/292812980271

Burgo was part of my childhood, grew up watching him on 'Wheel of Fortune'

https://youtu.be/JGBxYo_tFuA That clip is from "Balls of Steel Australia". Burgo is a well known game-show host in Australia he did "Wheel of Fortune" and "Burgo's Catch Phrase".

I think Skyfall is the 2nd best of Craig's so far (after Casino Royale), but it does have problems. Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol was way better IMO. There's a satire of this scene in Johnny English Strikes Again, instead of "were you expecting an exploding pen?" he says "were you expecting a gun ..." https://youtu.be/57Uy9jPxxwI
avatar
avatar
The honest trailer is exactly how I felt when watching it.
avatar
I honestly can't stand Skyfall Smile
avatar
I think the video I'm thinking of this this one, but it's a bit long to check the whole thing https://youtu.be/C7iaw_qc0-A?t=650 At that timestamp though he does mention how Verhoeven saw the character. But he explains it far better from his own POV at another time. He also in that session though talk about how he softened Robocop's voice from the moment that he took off the helmet but it didn't make it into the dubbing! https://youtu.be/71BgjfEsU_E
avatar
@Oogieboogie Completely disagree on the no Depth and Superficial. I don't think it was dumb at all. I could talk for hours about it Smile
avatar
@valeyard: on the mobile Version, I do not have that "e" button.

One of the worst parts about BR2049 was that they insisted on explaining to the audience everything that had happened since the original film. Another is that the treated replicants as if they’re biological – when it’s very clear in the original that they’re entirely synthetic. It’s a fundamental key theme of Blade Runner. They look and behave like humans, and perhaps can express humanity, perhaps they are sentient, but they are artificial. Robocop has a similar theme which of course the remake didn't understand at all (Robocop is a robot not a human). Peter Weller even said before the film was made that they wouldn't understand that theme and he was right. I can't find the exact video but he says something similar here: https://youtu.be/9uDYcNS25wg?t=492
avatar
No the criticisms for BR2049 are opposite to the original. Viewers didn't understand the original. Everyone understood BR2049 as it was a slavishly formulaic dumbed-down Hollywood blockbuster. It was supposed to be an action film like the original, but it turned out to be a very slow and boring drama.
avatar
Visually and sonically stunning but has zero depth to it, completely superficial
avatar
as a film I thought BR2049 was incredibly flawed, beautiful but flawed, like ridley was jerking off to his own vision. I really didnt like it, as for Mad Max, hands down the dumbest action film i have seen in years, you could write that script on the corner of a napkin, man grunts, grunts some more, drives, grunts, pretty lady that makes man grunt, blah blah blah
avatar
Ive got to chime in and say I loved both BR2049 and Fury Road. Mad Max was pretty special in my eyes. Had Mel been able to return with an old Max it would have been pretty much perfect.
avatar
But like I said I get the hate for 2049, it's a lot of the same criticism of the original. I just happen to love both with the original in my top ten.
avatar
But that still doesn't change my mind, I don't see any of those being as transformative an action film as Fury Road including TDK (which has other positive traits FR doesn't have). Nor any as much a thinking piece as 2049.
avatar
Might have to put this into a thread. Getting deep for the shout box. Most of those are good to great movies, having seen them all. Except the Johnny English films. I honestly just don't get what people see in those films Smile. I didn't include TDK at 2008 since I considered it outside that timespan
avatar
@MrBrown you can just edit your shout, you click the "E" to the right of your comment.
avatar
@PDB, well I didn't really like Fury Road either. I didn't "hate" it, but I don't think Tom Hardy was the right choice at all. BR2029 was a complete failure for me, just the fact that unlike the original everything is explained to the audience put me off. Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation 2012, Johnny English Reborn 2011, Van Diemen's Land 2009, The Dark Knight 2008, Gomorrah 2008, [Rec] 2007, The Orphanage 2007 https://vimeo.com/204454567 and the Machinist 2004 I would rate as close to perfect. Skyfall 2012, Casino Royale 2006, and Batman Begins 2005 I would rate very highly (and a few other films). Elle 2012 but that's not for everyone lol.
avatar
But, in the edit, and story telling way, it failed to me.
avatar
Scum.
avatar
Optical it was great work... It felt like a big futuristic cyberpunk world, full of mega corps and low life ycum.
avatar
I did not like it... In my opinion the story could have told shorter without loosing much. I really felt bored at the water fighting scene, when the music just made the complete fight dull, boring and too long.
avatar
I wasn't a fan. Whole movie felt kinda tryhard to me.
avatar
I thought it had too many characters, but I still liked BR49, it had some really good scenes and raised interesting questions and themes. It needed some slimming down in the writing phase though. BR seems small and intimate in comparison.
avatar
Probably true but I think we all can agree, although he has brilliant eye, Scott is hardly a good judge of editing Smile
