The Killer (1989) mono
#1
Does anyone have the Cantonese DD 2.0 mono track from the Japanese Paramount Blu-ray?

The HK Kam & Ronson BD only contains a 7.1 remix.

I have the Criterion DVD which includes a mono track and had a quick go at syncing, but its quite a bit different and will require some patch work.

Maybe I have the japanese BluRay, but I am not really sure. I'll be able to check next weekend, if I do not forget.

The japanese BluRay contains only a 7.1 DTS-HD, a 7.1 Dolby TruHD and a 6.1 Dolby EX track, no 2.0 .

This website states having a Cantonese 2.0 mono track, and doesn’t mention 6.1 either - http://dvdcompare.net/comparisons/film.php?fid=16053

Strange. They are known to be wrong sometimes though.

Then maybe there two Japanese BluRay releases... Mine just have three audio tracks with the same language...

So, yes, there two BluRay releases for the Killer from paramount Japan.
One with three times the same language in different encodes.. That's the one I have... https://www.amazon.co.jp/dp/B004QF0G4K/
And a second release with 4 audio streams, according to the mentioned web sites. https://www.amazon.co.jp/dp/B00DTBUX0Y/
They have different covers. But are both from Japan under paramount.. (seems to be same with a better tomorrow... Having additional Japan dubbed releases..)

There's also this JP boxset with The Killer and A Better Tomorrow I-III that has Cantonese LPCM mono, but it doesn't say for which ones though.

Looks like Criterion LD has the original Mono in PCM - https://www.lddb.com/laserdisc/06725/CC1436L/Killer-The

Btw, sort of unrelated but I have the Criterion Hard Boiled LD PCM (48khz only, I didn't rip it) if anyone needs it

A kind saint who has requested to remain anonymous sent me over a custom project of the Killer with quite a few audio tracks. Of most interest were the Scanbox DVD and LD mono tracks. The DVD track seems much healthier of the two, and I've sent it over to NeonBible. If anyone else would like to check it out just let me know. Its been synced the Dragon Dynasty BD.
