Flash Sale The Criterion Collection: "All in-stock Blu-rays and DVDs are 50% off SRP with promo code COOP". I hope that's a bargain. Smile
avatar
US and Canadian friends, Criterion sale is on for another 20 hours or so! https://www.criterion.com/sale

As I consider that possibility, I'd like some help in identifying the type of transition used for each of the credits slides in this clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tCAp0hHq_qw

I might expand my Robotech: The Movie restoration project into something bigger: specifically, The Definitive Robotech.

And, speaking of PKD, there's this enlightening broadcast/article: "A Mind Cubed" http://www.groundzeromedia.org/a-mind-cubed/ "During a Science Fiction Convention I was one a panel member in where the topic discussed was about whether or not Science fiction writers are actually prophets. ... my affirmative views on the subject matter [was] by using Philip K. Dick as a legendary mind that has written some insightful commentary in the past that we now are seeing transpire in our present world."

They weren't sure why BLADE RUNNER 2049 was "a flop" (so far) : "The Real Reason Blade Runner 2049 Flopped At The Box Office" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NesEOowhWw8 -- but maybe they missed THIS reason: "Why You Don't Hear From This Blade Runner Actress Anymore" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2rOFmpwMa8A (view @ 5:03 for the answer) Wink

Lucky you, Bronzie! That happens to be the 21st and final Flight 666 to HEL on a Friday the 13th! Big Grin
avatar
I'm not gonna take this standing up ('cause it's a pain for bronzed titans to sit down)! I've booked a flight to their headquarters in Helsinki! Let's see now ... the ticket reads ... "Nordic Airline Fin-Air, 13th hour, today (Friday, the 13th), to HEL (short-code for Helsinki), flight 666". Okay, I'm set to get to the bottom of this. https://omnystudio.com/d/clips/dae91041-.../audio.mp3 [start at 28:53]
avatar
Hmmm ... Friday the 13th. Now that sounds familiar. Friday the 13th, Friday the 13th. ... Doh! This DOES have something to do with FanRes! I've been punked!
avatar
* And now for something completely different * ... This has absolutely, positively has NOTHING TO DO with FanRes AT ALL ... !! happy FRIDAY THE 13TH !! Big Grin

(Full disclosure: I'm not a big fan of drugs myself. I just can't believe an entire discography/filmography/what-have-you was censored on account of one meth bust. Just goes to show Japan's second only to the Philippines in how severely they punish anyone who touches them drogas...)
avatar
See, just a few months ago the Pikachu and Pichu short made its high definition debut in Australia after waiting several years for a new release ANYWHERE on account of the Noriko Sakai drug scandal.
avatar
Well, thanks to some lame-ass anti-drug culture over in Japan, I'm importing the Pokémon movie Blu-rays from Australia for sure, hopefully for Christmas.

Just started looking at YT official-clips of Star Trek Discovery and ... well, anyone need a huge project to "restore" it to Star Trek? Nice special effects though. Smile https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aBb0hyuIfYQ

I keep forgetting The Ritz is setup for 70mm

yeah, it looks weird the way I wrote it, lol.
avatar
Clive Barker's alive still... The general hope is that someone like Arrow can pick up the rights to Nightbreed outside the US
avatar
I can only guess that his estate would support that decision.
avatar
If I understand you correctly, it may be possible that an unlimited, not so special pressing may be done in the future? That would be great.
avatar
The limited pressing was done as a "thank you" to the Facebook Group page that apparently helped get the release moving.
avatar
With Nightbreed it is even stranger.. they pressed 200 copies of a special edition and 50 copies of a non special edition... if I understand everything in read today correctly.
avatar
How does pressing only 250 copies benefit anyone, except scalpers? Bad enough the Phantasm set wasn't advertised as limited edition and is sold out already. At least they pressed 10,000 copies.
avatar
As per spoRv (above), now you too can weigh in without being accused (or worse) Rolleyes ... https://forum.fanres.com/thread-1795.html Smile
avatar
Yeah... Autocowrecktion at its pest...
avatar
Thanks... I assume no one can... Wink I don't want it it watch it, bug to put it on my shelf... But I assume, IF it appears on ebay, it will either be a bootleg, or a scalping price, I am not gonna pay.
avatar
Sorry I can't help you further MrBrown.
avatar
@spoRv and @JT: it is no option for me...
avatar
Yeah, it was limited to 250 copies... And only sold on the Clive barker shop site...
avatar
The "cut" you guys are speaking of is available at the spleen.
avatar
@MrBrown from what I have read The Cabal Cut was a very limited release which sold out quick. It may never have reached amazon
avatar
Having some coffee ... reading the site.
avatar
Smile
avatar
In this case: no it is not... Big Grin
avatar
myinternalorgan is your friend... Wink
avatar
What?! Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.....
avatar
^ It's all sold out MrBrown
avatar
@spoRv: what? I can't find it [Nightbreed - The Cabal Cut] at Amazon.com.
avatar
indeed
avatar
It’s corny but I like people coming together here and helping each other on these projects. Not tearing them apart through political discord. I think we have already seen the damage it can do to a forum.
avatar
I, myself, am full of political opinions but I respect that people might not want to hear them in this place. Because, like them, I come to this place so I can work on these stupid little insignificant projects. Not to get into political debates that go nowhere. Because let’s be honest: people just cannot have calm and rational political discussions anymore.
avatar
There are no rules for the shoutbox besides the rules of the forum. You can post everything, you posted. You are well within you right under the current rules. But I personally ask you as I have asked others (on all sides), to practice good human decency and lower the political rhetoric. Because I’m tired of it and I know many others are too.
avatar
@BT. Insult...no I didn't insult you BT. I'm not sure how you can even read that into what I said. I am calling into question why you felt the need to share this. Seriously, was it info you thought important to share on a fan restoration site?
avatar
Ah. Thanks. I'd forgotten aboot that one.
avatar
Instead of *rolls eyes*, you can use : rolleyes : (without the spaces separating the colons and the "rolleyes" text) to produce Rolleyes
avatar
It was a fair question ... nothing political and certainly nothing to roll one's eyes about, lol.
avatar
I was just saying ... it's the only real time discussion method on the site, for anything.
avatar
Rolleyes And this is why we can't have nice things. Perhaps try to behave yourselves when it comes to political discussion? Or--better still--take it to Everything Else or PM.
avatar
Maybe we shouldn't have a shoutbox then?
avatar
@ PDB - My answering your question was justification for your continuing with an insult? (Don't answer that.) Smile ... @ ilovewaterslides - It's called a "shoutbox". Smile ... @ spoRv - Seriously? Okay, you know I have regard for you. Let me bow [metal screeching]. Now, can somebody help me up?
avatar
Well, anyway, as we speak, I'm working on DVD and Blu-ray covers for my Dollars Trilogy restoration.
avatar
back on topic: "NightBreed - The Cabal Cut" is out!
avatar
@BronzeTitan: other forums, or, at least, post it in the "everything else" forum, if you want us to be aware of this!
avatar
Whether I agree or disagree with you is irrelevant, there are better forums for you to post that on than a movie restoration forum.
avatar
Yeah I think you miss the point BT, this is not your personal soapbox.
avatar
Sure thing. I'm not pointing out the fact of speaking up. I'm only agreeing with PDB because I believe it's not the best place to talk about this stuff.
avatar
@ PDB & ilovewaterslides: Well, to paraphrase German Lutheran pastor Martin Niemöller (during the Nazi reign of terror) ~ ~ First they came for children downloading songs, and we did not speak out because we were not their fathers. Then they came for the DVD pirates, and we did not speak out because we did not make pirate DVDs. Then they came for Kim Dotcom for his hosting website, and we did not speak out because we it was not in our countries. Then they came for fair-use us and there was no one left to speak out for us. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/First_they_came_... Wink
avatar
I doubt Exterminator 2 would be the one I'm looking for in any case, seeing that it has an older Cannon logo.
avatar
Sorry Evit, I do not have it.
avatar
Does anyone own the Shout Factory release of EXTERMINATOR 2?
avatar
OK, I believe a DVD would be my best source for an open matte Cannon logo for my Robotech: The Movie project. Only question is, which Cannon DVD in 4:3, or else with a 4:3 option, would you recommend for the open matte Cannon logo?
avatar
Yeah, the conversation about 35mm was better, right?
avatar
Ok I guess I'll be the guy and ask how is this relevant to fanres?
avatar
I support Kim Dotcom. Smile
avatar
BTW -- "US police also allegedly abuse civil forfeiture laws en masse, and seized more assets than burglars stole beginning in 2014." [Gizmodo] -- 'Nuff said?
avatar
"Kim Dotcom has never been to the United States, is presumed innocent, and is lawfully opposing extradition under the United States-New Zealand Treaty—yet the United States by merely labeling him as a fugitive gets a judgement to take all of his assets with no due process," Rothken said. "The New Zealand and Hong Kong courts, who have authority over the assets, will now need to weigh in on this issue and we are cautiously optimistic that they will take a dim view of the Fugitive Disentitlement Doctrine and oppose US efforts to seize such assets." - https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2017...ture-case/

Out-of-control Washington DC at the behest of Hollywood: Former Megaupload chief Kim Dotcom ... In January 2012, New Zealand authorities armed with rifles and tactical gear and accompanied by police helicopters raided his rented mansion at the behest of the US, seizing millions of dollars in property and freezing Dotcom's overseas bank accounts. ... In 2016, an [U.S.A.] appeals court ruled the civil forfeiture could move forward because Dotcom never came to the US to contest it — thus making himself subject to "fugitive disentitlement." ... and thus unable to contest the seizures. - https://www.gizmodo.com.au/2017/10/us-su...re-appeal/
avatar
Nice short. But I thought it should start differently; the trailer didn't break somewhere in the middle; the ending was too magical. (Am I over-thinking this? ) Smile
avatar
35mm will always be the way movies should be projected on. Seeing a badly focused pixel marmalade in a cinema is definitely not a similar experience.
avatar
avatar
Nice little short film about the death of 35mm projection

From what I can tell, 8th generation Core laptops can be at least $800.
avatar
steal it and then it is free ...
avatar
How much can we expect to pay for one?
avatar
For those wanting to get a new laptop in the near future, the 8th generation U-series Core chips from Intel appear to be gaining on the 7th generation HQ-series Core chips. Plus, they've doubled the cores to four.

^ ^ ^ ^ ^ + ^ ^ ^ ^ ' "Blade Runner ..." This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by Crunchyroll. Sorry about that.' . And yet ^ ^ ^ clearly states: "And do you know what's even better news for us fans? This little anime short is probably finished by now because it will be shown on Sony Pictures YouTube Channel on September 26 2017, which is just a little bit before the release of Blade Runner 2049 on October 6." -- It looks like Crunchyroll is exclusively handling that part --> http://www.crunchyroll.com/blade-runner-...022-748417

Sometimes there's a quota and the open reg. will end once the quota's reached

Maybe two / three days is a litte bit too long, you're right Jetrell...

I don't see it ending well but we'll just have to wait and see, lol.

Thanks for the info, spo!
