Uncle Buck (1989) digitally cleaned-up
#1
[Image: uncle_buck__john_candy__by_theplumber702-d52cga1.png]

A while back I painstakingly cleaned up as much as I could from Uncle Buck on Blu-Ray, frame by frame, because the current (and only existing) Blu-Ray release is full of dirt and spots, clearly it doesn't originate from negative. This clean-up job was part of a private project aimed to recreate the Italian threatrical version and I didn't think it would raise any interest but some of the members here were interested indeed so I'm going to release the US threatrical for FanRes. You may still notice some spots here and there but for every dot you may notice, 50 others or more have been removed.

These are all the corrections fused into one single shot

I haven't altered the length of the film so all Blu-Ray audio tracks should synch with it perfectly. I'm now at the final phase of rendering. If you own a Blu-Ray version with additional audio tracks I'll be happy to add them to my mux, I'm still in time to make an international version including all of them (I only have English and Italian at hand) but people can mux their favorite language later as long as it's from Blu-Ray or in sync with it.

Final format:
Final format: MKV
Video: 1080p, AVC video bitrate 25Mbps average, 40 max. (2-pass encode: very slow pass 1 + slow pass 2), 23.976fps.
Audio: English DTS MA 2.0
Subtitles: English.

Let me know if you have more languages to be added.

I can't disappoint the fans of Uncle Wart. Now I just need a fast connection to upload 25 GB of data

Awesome! Thanks for sharing that Evit. It looks like you put in a hell of a lot of work on it.

I did, and I wish Universal had done it for us before dishing out this Blu-Ray release. I could have tinkered with the wobble too but I wasn't sure I could pull it off properly.

Before the Universal logo there is a brief logo of mine over a black sequence that was already part of the release so it didn't alter the total length, I know a few here are not fans of that sort of thing and I wouldn't use it for simple muxes, only when my work is extensive. Nothing at the end.

And I remember you cursing yourself for starting it at all, multiple times... So yeah... Your work WAS VERY extensive on that one... So a little credit to yourself is just fair.

If nobody has additional audio tracks at the moment we can move this to "released". Upload is in progress but might take some time. Anyone with enough space on Mega to host it for us?
