[On Hold] Mad Max 2/Road Warrior Regrade (Warner 97 DVD and LD)
(2020-06-24, 05:58 PM)Stamper Wrote: 1. The original Australian version (with full PG speech) was also the international version on all VHS, LDs.

What LDs have the full Aus version? The Warner LDs are the short cut obviously but I'd love to find a LD with the full speech.

By all accounts the full PG speech was not on the negative hence it missing from the BD.

I have the lost cut somewhere but here is a good rundown of the PG speech and lost cut differences

I know there was an old pre certification laserdisc in the UK, the UK VHS was also uncut so I figure the LD was as well.

Ive got a rip of the uncut version from VHS but it’s very washed out and poor quality.

Same here!

Thanks a lot for the breakdown of all different versions. And I thought Blade Runner was the biggest candidate for multiple versions award Smile

I think the only way to get the international version uncut is probably the UK Laserdics, as all other LDs might have the foreign dub only.

There is only one UK release from 1986

And the Japanese LD

Here is an odd one. I was trolling through HBOmax for old or unique video masters and saw the Road Warrior. I clicked thinking it was the regular BD master till this came up

Apparently, this version is the US R rated version and seems to be missing the violence with the arrow and boomerang. It is the same master as the BD just cut to the US cut. It still has the modern WB logo (no Saul) and the exit music making it a hybrid of sorts.

Sadly, the RW is from a non clean-up source but at least seems to be stabilized. I have to to compare it to my work to see if it is an upscale also or a true HD scan.

Warners is releasing MM2 and Thunderdome in 4K. Tentatively, MM:BT looks the same as the BD, if the youtube clip is to be believed:



Sadly, MM:BT still had the bad blow out that the DVD doesn't have. But to me MM2/RW looks a tiny bit different in it that it looks a slight bit redder:



Is it just me or do some shots that have green skies on the BD look proper blue on this clip?

Still no blue filter at night like the DVD...

Mad Max 3 was only too hot on Blu, looks better here, I'm sure the UHD will shine.

Mad Max 2 will only need some tweaks to achieve perfection, I'm sure you will be able to reboot the project with great aim! Smile
