Films that used silver retention / bleach bypass
#11
For "The X-Files," wouldn't that LD transfer be the same one on that original DTS/DD DVD?

Don't know... as Alien Resurrection LD supposedly used the silver retention print master, maybe it could be the same for X files.

Don't know if it's destiny, a coincidence, or what... just zapping on TV, and found Fight Club... of course, I'm watching it right now! Yep, definitely a silver retention print - blacks are so deep there in nothing more in it... still don't know if I hate this or love this... I wonder if BD has the same color palette, though!

The Blu Ray for Fight Club was a complete regrade from the negative, supervised by Fincher. The D-Theater release is the closest to theatrical I believe. I had the 1080i rip once upon a time but I deleted it  Sad

I must find it... last time I watched was year ago, and now that I watch it with fresh mind, I understand Fincher is a genius, and this is a masterpiece!

There was also a blu ray released in Germany by Kinowelt which seems to use the same master as the D-Theater release. Was there ever a cap of the laserdisc PCM audio for Fight Club?

Here is a screen comparison between the two german releases: http://www.dark-red.de/fclub/i_b_br_fclub.html

As far as I know, D-Theater PCM should be 48000KHz 16bit, hence no need to resample from 44100KHz of the laserdisc track... it has Dolby Digital as well - IIRC it has the same specs of laserdisc.

So, once we get the D-Theater, we are done! Big Grin

EDIT: forgot to mention, there is also an open matte version around...

MrBrown, thanks for the prompt comparison!

Colors are similar, while remasterd BD has more image and details on the side, BUT... they have NOT the blacker-than-black I've watched it on TV until few minutes ago, like the ones from D-Theater:

I'm pretty sure the BD has not that kind of blackness found on it.
