BTTF 16:9 OR 4:3?
Supposing the Dollars Trilogy got THX certifications back when they were overused especially on laser videodiscs? What would be the best scenes to use visually, when showing off to your friends?
The japanese BD is filled with subtitles.. seems as if some kind of international release is ahead... at least subtitle wise the release is very, very international...
Yeah saw that Alien teaser, awesome. There's another one with the end card, this one is cut off. Since this teaser is mostly alternate footage, this is the best we're going to get.
And with German friendly... I specifically meant: it has German audio option and German menu language...
At least it plays fine on my German PS4... And Japan normally is Region A, while Germany is region B... I assume it is at least Region A+B...
I think you'll manage without the sickbag. So the Japanese blu is region free?
Whew! Evil Dead (2013) unrated japanese BD was delivered today... Waiting at my neighbor for me to be fetched...
Aliens teaser trailer on 35mm! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iaUXuY3U4Ag LOVE IT!
One other thing regarding the Constantin logo: do make sure the source's bitrate is at least 5.2 Mbps, to ensure the best possible quality.
Another logo I'm looking for for my Dollars Trilogy restoration, for the German versions of each film, is the Constantin Film bringt Sunburst logo. I'll take what I can get, but in this case 1080p and Scope would be quite preferable.
Regarding the Castilian Spanish track for Fistful, which DVD should I get? The one from Impulso/Video Mercury, or the one from Warner Bros.? (For those wondering, I'm aiming for the original mono track, again.)
Hell, yeah! Evil Dead (2013) extended Japan BluRay should arrive upcoming Monday. I am thrilled!
No I cannot change, because it is not my choice... At least the stationary Internet provider is not my choice...
BTW anyone has copies of Robocop on Blu? I'm looking for subtitles, in any language, mostly english or french, for the trailer with the music from Terminator. Anyone can help?
Iknow someone who has the tape, he already did a preserv, however he used the blu-ray track for most of the disc, he just patched it wherever there was a need with the vhs. I think the mix are the same?
Well, whoever happens to have a French-dubbed Fistful of Dollars cassette, please feel free to leave me a PM.
Does anyone have a French-dubbed cassette of the film? Because I couldn't find any on eBay.
Fortunately, there appears to have been a VHS cassette released around the '90s with the French track.
Finding a decent French track for Fistful is going to be very difficult due to rights issues which generally kept it off the market until 2010, meaning the only DVD and Blu-ray releases I know of to have it were remixed.
I buy my cellphones independent from any telecommunication company. So I get the phone I want.
Excellent. A combo of Internet Service at 1gbDL speed + box that record programs in hd (you just hit rec on the selection of forthcoming films and everything is done auto) + phone cell can be as low as 35 bucks a month. It's good to scour the offers and switch, especially on cellphones price.
I have neither Cable TV, nor the recording devices... Also Amazon prime sometimes seem to get other masters, compared to DVD/BD release... I.e. Deadpool on Amazon Video has localized Starting credits in Germany.
So record your faves on TV just to check if the masters are the same as DVD/HD, or not!
Also, I wanted to say to european fellow forumers, CableTV is fantastic to still find copies of films with localised titles, that existed for example on VHS, but stopped being available after DVD globalisation of masters.
I also have the french TF1 T1 DVD ripped, it includes the english and french original mono tracks. I don't have the disc, but an mp4 file for the video + the two audio tracks ripped straight. Anyone interested? You can use the video file to resync both. They are worth preservations.
Never saw a trailer switching between framing.. and.. the Terminator 2 Judgement Day and the T2.. just seem to be a bit out of place in the Trailer.. as if the intended Framing was not in the middle of the Frame.. but a bit more at the top alligned...
If there are still frames with artifacts, we can handle them indivdually. It is possible to chain multiple calls to TFM(). Your script does a really good job though.
I just got a german Terminator 2 Trailer on a DVD.. that is quite.. not the trailer I saw somewhere else: German Audio, different from the Movie Dubbing.. and variable framing... sometimes about 1.66:1 and sometimes more the normal widescreen framing... but not centered...
Waiting for the fiber, the new company cut my old line... so, for few days, I should rely only on my phone.
Mhm.. okay... MediaInfo states a 3 channel audio on that disc... phew... thought I had to search for that DVD again.. this time with the unknown audio Now I can go to work...
Okay, so the DVD profiler listing is also wrong... I think I gonna check my Disc ASAP, maybe there just was a faulty batch, and some are really 1.0
Read the note here: http://dvdcompare.net/comparisons/film.php?fid=982
The audio is stated to be 1.0 mono on the hems Dale / image DVD. Or was there another release?
No, there are interviews or quotes online from the editor, who says the film was shot in square open matte, intended for 1.85. The prints were matted at 1.66 though in europe, but nonetheless shown 1.85.
@ilovewaterslides: the exists proof that there were at least TV airings droning more to top and bottom, compared to the 1.66:1 DVD.
So you guys still didn't figure out that Terminator was shot hard matted 1.66:1? :O
False alarm! just made a comparison with the DVD, and the only open matte part is the initial introduction, while the rest of the movie is simply pan&scan...
The Italian LD has the same image size as this http://fastpic.ru/view/70/2015/1004/7f5f...c.jpg.html - apart few pixels less on the left...
Oh, BTW, I doubt anyone cares, but I have discrete 5.1 audio for Twins (1988). This has never been released on any home video format.
Has anyone compared the mono audio from the LD of "The Sting" to the 5.1 track that has shown up on the DVD and BD releases?
Sorry, it's certainly not in my collection... many US versions and one UK one... plus a Japanese from a friend...
The German pre-dvd LD, FSK18, slightly censored: http://www.lddb.com/laserdisc/36203/5020...inator-The
I stay away from the shoutbox, and few hours later so many messages?!? repost the LD catalog number, *maybe* I have it - should check...
According to LDDB.com the german VCL LD of the Terminator is from 1995... The DVD from 1998... So it is possible that they botched the transfer from LD to DVD...
