[On Hold] 2010 The Year We Make Contact Older HDTV Master (Quick Project)

2010 The Year We Make Contact Older HDTV Master (Quick Project v1.0)


Project Info:
I've always loved 2010. I know most believe it pales compared to the Kubrick masterpiece and that is a sentiment I agree with but none of that has tempered my love for this movie. I always loved the more "real world" look and feel of this movie compared to the almost mysticism of the original. That and I think people will agree this movie has a superior cast giving pretty damn good performances.

The origins of this project are simple. While I was patching up the older HDTV master of Alien, I went through my collection of old HDTV caps and recordings and found a few unique ones that I wanted to polish up and release. 2010 is the first of those.

The older HDTV master of 2010 has the same the color timing of the dvd. I wouldn’t say one is better than the other, some colors are better, some worse. I would just call it different and not more theatrically accurate per say. And since there is a HDTV master with different color timing, I would like to preserve it. Hence this project.

Video:
A HDTV broadcast which has the dvd color timing cleaned up with various filters.

Audio:
1. PCM 2.0 Dolby Surround (from the Widescreen LD)
2. Dolby Digital 5.1 (from the HDTV)

The BD master is awful, so this should be a huge improvement!

Agreed. The HDTV has a more consistent look though. The BD is just ... odd.

Have to confess to having never seen this, despite loving 2001. HDTV certainly has more pleasing colours than the BD from those caps.

I think the PCM sound much better, more original. You can tell the True has been tweaked and remixed.

If you can divorce it from 2001, its a pretty good "hard" sci-fi film on its own terms.

Yeah the BD is strange duck but I don't want to say it is bad since it might be more accurate to 35mm prints than the HDTV. But more choices=better.

I’m not too bothered by the Blu-ray transfer it looks like film tho I made a thread a while ago about it being more cropped than the dvd
Looks like the hdtv version has less cropping

I find most Peter Hyams films have had a bizzare transfer to Blu-ray.
Way to dark!
The Relic is by far the worst offender and I don't know of a decent version ever on Home Video.
