#1
[Image: UHyJeH2.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 4k Remastered Blu Ray
  • Original chapter stops used on the Laserdisc
  • English 2.0 PCM from the laserdisc (thanks Alexpeden2000 and Zoidberg)
  • Isolated Score AC3 from the laserdisc
  • Audio Commentary with Martin Scorsese AC3 from the laserdisc
  • English, French, German and Spanish Subtitles
  • Theatrical Trailer
  • Storyboards
  • Production Photos
  • A Chorus Of Isolation
  • Martin Scorsese Filmography
PM me for the links, contributing 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, as software players disabled the screenshot function.

Thumbs Up 
This was the first director's commentary track I listened to (TD LD).


Martin S.: "You have people coming up to you all day and they ask you ten thousand questions...but all of them are important."

Or something to that effect; probably incorrectly quoted as it was almost thirty years ago I heard it Cry (and hopefully I'm not quoting the wrong CC TD LD DC here!  Smile )

The menus look astounding! It's absolutely fantastic that you have included the Criterion Laserdisc audio tracks as well. Is there any notable changes in the audio on blu-ray, etc with changes to music, sound effects, etc?

Thanks. Not done a comparison on the audio I'm afraid so I cannot say for sure, but usually the LD audio is superior to the Blu Ray.

Thanks for the link! I recently discovered this blog in the past week or so. It taught me to seek out the Laserdisc audio for Jaws before I watch it for the first time. Going to sync the audio to the 4K blu-ray tonight.

This project has now been upgraded to V2. There were issues with the timing of two of the subtitle tracks on the previous release and this also now includes the Surround Soundtrack from the first DVD release. Thanks to Stamper for spotting the subs error and suggesting the DVD track.
