Escape from New York [spoRv] V1.1
#1
_,,,^..^,,,_ presents Escape from New York [spoRv] V1.1 - special preserved or Restored version

[Image: 3_D_COVER.jpg]

| Released projects | Projects in progress | Future projects | Mission & Setup |


Mission: to restore John Carpenter's Escape from New York  using a source better than BD, plus original soundtrack and commentary.

Video sources: HDTV broadcast.
Audio sources: uncompressed PCM original soundtrack, captured directly from Collector's Edition laserdisc, along with commentary; other soundtracks from BD and DVD.

Subtitles sources: to reflect soundtracks.


Project info:
Personally, "Escape from New York" is one of my favourite movies; after I discovered that the EU Blu-ray is really bad, and the US Blu-ray is very dark, I began to search a better alternative; I found that the HDTV version broadcasted by HDNet is maybe the best compromise. The HDTV will be used as video source.
Plus, the Collector's Edition laserdisc will be used to add the original soundtrack and the commentary.

Project status: V1.0 was released some months ago; now that I watched it carefully, I noted that there are some little signs of macroblocks, so I thought to release a new version; I will use a deblock filter, and add a grain plate to improve the overall quality of the picture.

Ive got Version 1.0 and love it. This will be great.
I hear there is a new BD coming. Might be a better source for you to work from?

If it's like the Supernova BD, probably... Big Grin

I don't think the new BD will have the same HDTV color grading, so, unless it will happen, I think my V1.1 could be released... or not?!?

Hey, guys...

http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Escape-fro...ay/109611/

It seems like Shout Factory waits till spoRv is done with one project to release it officially. First was Supernova and now this one. XD

Yeah, saw that today and PMed spoRv about it, sure hope it's a major improvement with a 2k remaster. It would be better if Arrow was doing it.

Not my comparisons, they could have at least gotten the exact frame cap. http://screenshotcomparison.com/comparis.../picture:0

I still like the HDTV

Pretty sure dvdmike did it, right?

Even if colors are a bit different, they are really closer - in comparison to old BD, plus BD has more details on all sides... I think there is no reason to do a 1.1 version, and 1.0 could be archived...

I think the colors are over saturated with the shout bd, not that i compared it to your release yet. Did you change the color at all in yours or just left the hdtv the way it was?

I don't think dvdmike got the screen caps, though i could be wrong.

(yes, unfortunately he didn't grab the exact frame but you get the idea)
