Alien Resurrection Open matte DVD?

28 Replies, 21416 Views

Just curious, does anyone know if there is an open matte DVD or laserdisc of AR?
There was a full frame LD released in Hong Kong. Probably has subtitles.

There also was a full frame DIVX DVD. Did anyone ever successfully rip one of these?

It has them, and it should be p&s.

AFAIK, there is a french fullscreen DVD - it *should* be open matte; someone talked about an open matte version with two boom mikes in the same scene, don't know if they were talking about this; probably an US version exists.

Plus, there is a 16:9 open matte HDTV recording: http://screenshotcomparison.com/comparison/112923

We should start something like an open matte database! EDIT: I did it! http://blog.sporv.com/open-matte-master-list/
Sadly my projects are lost due to an HDD crash... Sad

I have the original 1080i HDTV copy that those screenshots are sourced from and can verify that the whole thing is 16x9 open matte. It's capped from a Russian broadcast, is 25fps, ONLY has a Russian voice-over... It's AVC encoded at 11.9mbps...

I also have a Russian VHS tape captured, which is open-matte/pan&scan. The quality is decent for a VHS capture. Of course, also only contains a Russian voice-over...

I am happy to share either one with youWink

The HDTV broadcast is 9GB and the VHS copy is about 900MB...

First time I ever saw one of those. Cool.
I found the VHS copy I have and took a quick screenshot of it to show the differences...

So, here we go:

To me, the open-matte HDTV version here is the best option... Hope this helpsWink
Weird that the headroom is exactly the same across all three.

Seeing more of Sigourney's legs is a good thing. Wink

Thanks for the rundown guys. I'm going to try to find hdtv. Given what jerry posted it looks like the 1.33 transfer is not worth tracking down.
@PDB - PM sentWink
Thanks jerry!
