Top is the new master.


Did anyone else know about this??
I know The Siege and The Living Daylights were a nightmare to find at the time, but I had no idea this happened

Yes, it's been a while since they modified it.

The UHD also misses apparently all the onscreen subtitles, and replace them with badly translated subtitles.

I have a possible explanation for this. The Afghan dedication screen on the bottom is the one seen on US prints (that opened with the TriStar logo and had the burnt-in subtitles for certain sections), which was the source used on all US video releases except for the 1998 Artisan DVD. The European release prints, as well as the 1998 Artisan DVD release and the StudioCanal 4k remastered releases, use the Carolco International print that lacks the burnt-in captions and has a different Afghan dedication screen. It's likely that the OCN StudioCanal used for Rambo IIIs 4k release is this version (OCNs generally lack burnt in text elements or credits that normally appear on release prints and IPs), whereas the previous HD masters with the burnt-in captions were based on a Sony owned US IP.

Burnt-in can be reproduced you just have to google whathefont and reproduce the same font in same spacing with same subtitle Smile

I'm guessing this should be candidate for a preserv.

I don't mind the opening dedication, and in fact, the new master font look more real than the one below which look video generated in the 80's.

So it's fake, that's why the lettering looks video generated. It's probably from a different source (TV perhaps?)

Maybe different versions had different messages? Pal/NTSC?
