kk650's Regraded Spider-Man: Homecoming (blanket yellow tint removed from blu-ray)
Time

Right, I know that’s what’s been done, but why? Is there any reason to believe the yellow tint isn’t intentional? In a modern DI workflow that involves no photochemical steps, there’s no reason to doubt what’s been released.

kk650 has a long history of color correcting movies not to make them more theatrically accurate, but to make them look better. Just a different philosophy from most projects here.

After Ellison threatened legal action, subsequent prints of The Terminator have since carried, “Acknowledgement to the works of Harlan Ellison” during the end credits.

Honestly, this is such a minor change that I’m not too bothered by it. That said, it would be a (relatively) easy project, if someone wanted to remove it.

Sadly this new release contains a couple of minor digital alterations. The windshield does not fall out of the truck in the first chase sequence. In addition, an obvious Arnie stunt double has been altered to look more like Arnie in a motorcycle scene (I think the same scene as the truck).

I haven’t seen the new 3D release but… are the alterations distracting on George Lucas levels? With today’s technology I’d imagine making the stunt guy look more like Arnie, could be done pretty flawlessly. The windshield I can sort of understand because it has always fallen in the past viewings.

I had never seen the movie before and never would have noticed them. The stunt guy is far away in the shot, so quite small. The changes are totally transparent.

An insider at Paramount claims that from 1997 onwards, the colours on The Godfather and Part II have never been correct and very likely, never will be. A depressing read that also includes details of how the original negative was mishandled during the 80s for home video transfers.

Man, I never would have known. The Coppola restorations of the first two are top notch releases that look phenomenal.

A new blu-ray release of T2 is coming out soon which will fingers crossed be a big improvement over all previous blu-ray releases. I plan to release an updated version of Terminator 1 as well to tie in with that release.

Stephen King's IT (1990) - Original two-part version! [RELEASED]

No, no such thing is planned.
However, you can just take MKVtoolnix, load the MKV file into MKVtoolnix GUI and specify the following:

Tab: Output
Split mode: After specific timecodes
Timecodes: 01:35:22.645

This will split the MKV into two at the exact location of the Part 1/2 split.

I was able to do this successfully. It took all of 8 minutes. Thanks!

The trilogy is on Netflix in the US… I wonder if they are different masters than the blus…

Just compared them, and the Netflix is definitely the same master, to my eyes.

FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING: Green tint removed?

Aw damn, I really liked having them all in one file. Any chance of also uploading a high bitrate combined file for each film (guessing it’d be in the 80GB range for each)?

And the problem is, for TTT and ROTK, the audio continues over the black screen that says INSERT DISC 2, so if you just join them at the cut to black without overlapping the audio from disc 1, you get a hard audio cut that’s jarring. This isn’t the case for FOTR, a simple join works fine for that one.

If he releases it as a BDMV, you can use MakeMKV to turn it into one file.

Man, I would love to watch an open matte version of The Godfather. Since I definitely can’t afford the print, I’ll ask this: was there an open matte DVD?

This might be too old to bother responding to but I wanted to let you know that VHS editions are open-matte!

Dang, that is awesome! I’ll have to look around for those.

It’s not on this list but I did read that Scarface - Al Pacino has a scene in the theatrical print that is not in any other version so that would be one to look out for.

Just thought I would give the heads up on that…

Specifically, it had an intermission in the original theatrical release.
