[Released] Menace II Society Criterion Preservation
#1

Another project complete. The blu ray has drastically different colours when compared to the laserdisc so I have colour corrected it scene by scene, using over 50 Dr Dre LUTs and slightly adjusting the contrast levels in Premiere.
  • BD25 with animated menus that look and behave like the official Criterion discs, with a background video, pop up menus and resume function
  • Video taken from the official Blu Ray, with scene by scene colour correction
  • Original chapter stops used on the Laserdisc
  • English 2.0 from the Laserdisc (Thanks Alexpeden and Zoidberg!)
  • Two Criterion audio commentary tracks taken from Laserdisc
  • English, French, German and Spanish Subtitles
  • Theatrical Trailer
  • Making Of A Menace: Introduction
  • Interview With The Hughes Brothers
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Storyboards
  • Film To Story Comparison
  • Shooting the Korean Grocery Store Scenes
  • Film School
  • 2Pac Brenda's Got A Baby Music Video
  • Raw Fusion Throw Your Hands In The Air Music Video
  • Laserdisc Production Credits
PM me for the links, contributing/long term members only please. The photos below aren't great as the only way I could get them is from my phone while the disc is playing, software players disabled the screenshot function. Also below is before and after colour correction images, original first then corrected.

Looks fantastic! The Blu-ray always looked way too garish and over-saturated. This makes it far more filmic, great work.

I also have a Criterion Laserdisc and I want to watch with subtitles (closed captions) and it doesn't contains cc disappointly. I am right? Although there is a sign for cc.
You want to create a custom BD like Special Editon BD. It seems wonderful but I can offer you to give you german audio track. Do you want it?

The project has German subtitles but it's already complete I'm afraid so not looking to add any extra audio tracks
