#1
[Image: Aw6HxOB.jpg]

• 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 HK Rescue project, full credit to them
• Original chapter stops used on the DVD
• Cantonese 1.0 Mono AC3 taken from the DVD
• Cantonese 2.0 LPCM taken from the laserdisc
• English 1.0 Mono AC3 taken from the DVD
• Audio commentary by director John Woo, producer Terence Chang, filmmaker Roger Avary and critic Dave Kehr
• English, French, German and Spanish Subtitles
• Student Film Accidentally
• Notes on Hard Boiled
• Guide to Hong Kong crime films
• John Woo’s Hong Kong movie trailers
• Theatrical Trailer
• DVD Credits

PM me for the links, contributing/long term members only please. The photos below of the menu 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.

Need to re-watch this; it's been too long. I take it you recommend the HK Rescue version?

Even if its quality might be very bad, as a bonus the extended cut of HArd Boiled would have been nice... but anyway: thanks for your work. Smile

Yes it's a great restoration, this project is purely a restoration of what Criterion did but the HK Rescue version contains a lot of other audio tracks and extra features.

Hey alleycat, must commend you for the number of releases you've created in such short order! Love these Criterion BDs and look forward to the other ones you have listed coming up.

I really like the covers you create for your releases.
Really impressive releases all round Smile

Did you Color Correct this using DrDre's LUT workflow?

Thanks very much - it's not actually me who makes the covers, I work with a guy who does the covers and I do the discs, but yes they look great and he does disc art and insert booklets etc. 

I didn't touch the video on this project no but I read that HK Rescue color corrected it using the Criterion as the source.

The blurb for the HKR release claims the Japan blu was colour corrected to match theatrical prints. I've never seen Hard Boiled theatrically so I couldn't comment in that respect but I watched the Criterion LD recently (and loved it), the HKR does not look like the Criterion.

I do not know, if the Criterion LD and the Criterion DVD share the same color grading, but each DVD release seem to get a different grading:
