VCD haul

14 Replies, 3154 Views

managed to bag a load of VCD's off Freecycle today as I said in the shoutbox on the front page.

Below is a list of them and authenticity of them. I'll go through them one by one and say if it's a screener, cam or legit VCD over the week or so. Only listing them in case of the framing (open matte) or if the versions on the disc differ in anyway. Sometime CAM jobs from the cinema can reveal any cuts that were made for home video versions.

If anyone would like to see them, leave a message below and I'll back them up to my Googledrive and share the link

Nice finding! Ok

Curious to see Godzilla.
Sadly my projects are lost due to an HDD crash... Sad

Curious about your Armageddon, Godzilla and Lost in Space. If memory serves me right they should be timecoded.

Lost in Space is a CAM job so 100% bootleg
Armageddon is not timecoded

Are they already ripped? Or do you need to rip them? VCDs might get problematic to be ripped. Doesnt seem like a copy protection, more like CDs are giving up.
I have serious problems with the T2 Discs. Even if they look pristine. One of my drives can read the first disc effordless, but fail to make a copy of the 2nd Disc, while other drives jnot even get the first disc copied.
Even if they play fine, there seem to be problems getting all the bits.

Nice haul! I barely have any VCDs but I always found them somewhat fascinating back in the day. It's easy to write them off as awful but back then it was amazing to be able to watch a film (in full VHS quality!) on your crumby CRT PC monitor. Certainly a lot better than Real Player!
Program material is recorded on the other side of this disc...
Checked Godzilla. Not quite sure to be honest. Looks like a telecine but with Chinese subtitles. Opening credits are letterboxed and then immediately goes to fullscreen afterwards. Definitely not a cam job
How does Payback look? Got the blue tint?
I would love to see the three original ones: Daylight, Volcano and The Full Monty. Thank you!
Armageddon, Godzilla, Mission Impossible 2 would be interesting to see to me.
