[Released] A Better Tomorrow regrade
#1
So, this is one is done. 

Audio:
Cantonese mono (analogue laserdisc track)
Cantonese mono (digital laserdisc track)
Cantonese 7.1 (from the blu-ray)
Mandarin 5.1 (from the Joy Sales DVD)

Subtitles:
Kuyahukduk's translation.

Video:
Blu-ray release regraded to come closer to the Golden Cinema LD release (hopefully with no encoding issues). What I did here was aim to come close to Colek's release while reducing the magenta tones of the Golden Cinema LD colours; as well as adding back the blue that often isn't kept in the most recent releases.

Full disclosure that, as we know, the original release wasn't the greatest and does have its problems; my regrade might thus have the same inherent flaws but I hope it does present an acceptable viewing option all the same.

PM me for the Mega link.

You're very welcome. It's an MKV for now. I don't yet have a blu-ray writer for my current PC, but once I get one I'll look into authoring. I've authored DVDs in the past, but blu-ray authoring is quite new to me so I'd want to do it right.

Thanks!

A VCD? I'd be curious if it had similar colours to the old DVDs.

Not sure, I replaced my VCD with DVD, but can't recall if I ever rewatched it, and this were imported dvds, which at the moment are in storage. But if I had to guess probably not the best quality.

Fair points. Sometimes the colours can be close to the theatrical release, and I think also some VCDs were made from different masters than an equivalent DVD release.

I only ever bought two VCDs, but luckily they were films that either never got a DVD release or didn't get one until a decade or so after the VCD release.
