[Released] Mortal Kombat (1995) - Open Matte Komposite
#1
Video 
Cortical Systems is back to celebrate the new 2021 Mortal Kombat movie release by going back and painstakingly blending and aligning a fullscreen DVD version of the original 1995 film with the north american blu ray 1080p resolution to create this new open matte edition without sacrificing on the quality where it counts most.

The SD source was treated with a detail preserving upscale as well as colour matched to the blu ray source. Each shot was then re-positioned to the new aspect ratio. In some shots the colour may pop ever so slightly but I'm out of steam for this project and believe this version is good to release for now.

Like a lot of older movies, many of the digital effects and matte painting shots were not completed with the full open matte. In these cases, I've opted to use the widescreen 1080p source since it looks much nicer and in most cases the jump in ratio works fine for this kind of martial arts movie. 
See more of Sub Zero's freezing particles! More beautiful Kitana! SLIGHTLY more rubber trees in Sorpion's forest! A C-stand base left uncovered...and more! This edition doesn't fix any of the cheesey writing, acting or Christopher Lambert's voice but hopefully it will be a treasured edition of the childhood classic movie we all grew up with.

Stay tuned for future Cortical System releases.

Just watching this now and there is a brief error when Johnny Cage looks at the invitation to the tournament. The aspect ratio switches mid shot. It's just a frame or 2 by the look of it.

Yeah unfortunately you're right and its possible there are 1 or 2 other places that happens. My eyes have been bleeding for the last few weeks QC-ing everything Sad

There's also a few places where try I as might - the alignment was slightyyyy off. But it is what it is.
