This topic has kinda already started in the PDB's BTTF Open Matte Upscale Project.
This is my first real project.
I'm going to be using the famous DCPrip and apply a custom color correction to make it look more "theatrical" compared to the "raw interpositive scan" look of the 2002 master. Some members here will agree with me My main color reference comes from an old VHS TVrip which was sourced on a theatrical print.
My other goal is to add the "To Be Continued" title card that was originally included in the video releases of the movie then removed in 2002. Apparently there is no official and good quality version of this logo so I've decided to recreate it based on the original one. It's no 100% match but it's still pretty good looking IMO and of course, better than nothing.
I'm planning to release a typical x264 MKV file including my capture of the US Laserdisc audio track presented in its original uncompressed PCM form.
