[Proposal] Merging of Terminator 1 & 2
#1
Both films being around 4 hours long - do you think that making them into one with duration of 3 hours at most would be a remotely good idea ? I think it would be interesting and i would have fun with it. It will be tricky though... because it is a huge production value difference, but at least it's only 7 years between them. It would not work, imo, if it's more than 20 years age gap.

My idea goes like this: after browsing this site for some time, i stumbled to 4:3 version of T2 but apparently T1 is only avalialble (good quality at least) at 1:78:1 & 1:85:1 aspect ratio (correct me if i am wrong). But anyway, perhaps the best edition would be in 1:78:1, so only T2 4:3 version should be set to 1:78:1 to match T1.

Now, the most difficult part would be to set the whole film to no more than 3 hours... so which scenes should be deleted ? Actually both films have some charming additional scenes which somewhat makes this mission even more impossible. 4+ hours is perhaps a bit too long, even for the quality film. 

So pretty much this version:

to be merged with this one:

- i really like those blue colors in T2 (which would nicely match with ''U Matic'' grade of T1, by the way) - they are way more appealing than those teal (or whatever-it's-called) that is a trend nowadays.

Definitely a team-work is required here. 

Check out this:

- pay attention to 1:56 (Czech) - is that a similar low budget sound that T1 has ? Does anyone have that rare version of T2 in English?
Sound of ''T1&2 Merge'' can be in T1 mono style, but with corrections like this:

I would like to see your thoughts on this.

About aspect ratio:
using T2 4:3 and crop it to 1.78 (1.85) :1 would chop quite a bit of image IMHO.

*maybe* the best way would be to use something around 2.0, where T1 would be cut top and/or bottom, while T2 would be cut on left and/or right side.
Sadly my projects are lost due to an HDD crash... Sad

But it would still have more info than 2.39:1 ?

Not sure how i would feel about that... Thank you for your answer though.

Maybe try and find an Open Matte 16:9 version of T2, If a 4:3 exists, there's a good chance a 16:9 exists somewhere as well.
