All Things Star Trek
Time

Glad I own TOS on BD. Wish it got the same restoration for the OG 60’s shots similar to what TNG received for BD. The Motion Picture I have the Director’s Edition, the fan restoration DVD of the Special Longer Version, and the BD with Nissens custom cover. The Wrath of Khan I have the corrected Director’s Edition BD with custom cover by Nissen since I consider the Mondo artwork to be shit. The Search for Spock and The Voyage Home BDs. The Undiscovered Country 2-Disc DVD and the BD. First Contact the BD. Trek 2009 on BD.
Need to get the BD boxsets for TNG and ENT. 3D BD for Into Darkness and Beyond. Star Trek Compendium for '09 and Into Darkness. For DS9 and VOY I can just rent the DVDs from Netflix or borrow them from a friend. Haven’t seen all the episodes. The rest of the movies I’ll catch up on too but really hoping for 4K remasters of them eventually. Cause the current TOS and TNG movie BDs, barring TWoK DE BD, all use antiquated older HD masters. Except TMP received a new scan for the Theatrical Cut.

Star Wars "Official" Canon Content Thread

I am really excited about the upcoming Thrawn novel, and I have to hurry to order and read the original Thrawn trilogy first.

No need the to buy the Legends books. Check them out from your local library. IMO they’re a complete waste of money and I’m glad I sold all of them or gave them away.
No, I haven’t bought anything current canon since I can borrow them from a friend. (Comics, books, video games, etc. Not the action figures since IDGAF.) I’ve already borrowed and rented TFA a couple times but I’ll never willingly own it. Will do the same for Rogue One since I already saw it twice in cinemas.
Don’t care about proposed fan edits or extended cuts for TFA or Rogue One.
Would much rather own other movies for my Blu-ray disc collection compared to anything Star Wars. Yes, I’m done with buying it but I don’t mind borrowing it.

But yes, if any of you get the chance and are able to, watch THE CLONE WARS in Chronological Order. It’s how I watched it the first-etc. times and never Broadcast order. REBELS is fine too. Especially since it takes a lot of inspiration from Ralph McQuarrie and the other OG OT concept artists.

Oh god yes, that’s such a pain to use, had to use AVC for it instead.

You should use H265/HEVC instead of H264/AVC. I don’t consider Handbrake a pain to use. But I use it frequently and always use the same settings. ALWAYS 0 Noise Reduction. Film grain is our friend. If the film was shot on celluloid, obviously.

If they did they’d better use the BD as a source, not the DVD.
I’d rather have an Extended Edition or whichever fan edit.

Thanks for the interest.

I’ve only just managed to render the workprint without any audio pops…the problem had something to do with converting the file to MP4. I’m working on a solution to that right now for future releases.

Handbrake?

Ghostbusters Criterion PCM Track

Ok, here’s the Criterion PCM lossless audio track in flac format:

https://mega.nz/#!EBBjUBxT!qAJkONY2dYnocOLaraLqNWK1xBYFFf6roiQxmM0CoKo

I’ll do the same for the 1080i file, but it’s 8gb and this 400mb file took almost 3 hours to upload, so it will be days until it’s done.

Use Winrar and upload it in 200MB chunks. The part1.rar etc.

Larger files upload fast since I’m a student at Cabrillo College in Aptos, CA. Usually upload to Mega.co.nz too and I share the links in PM.

I have the 1080i version somewhere and the LD pcm soundtrack. I also have quite a slow connection! If someone could show me an easy place to upload it to, then I’d be happy to share it. I’m thinking an FTP site with resume feature (in case the connection drops), but I can try an upload site as long as it can handle the 8gb file.

IF you could upload that somewhere that would be awesome. I have the audio commentary from the Region 1 DVD which i have extracted losslessly, which would presumably synce up well with the 1080i version so long as it’s an NTSC framerate. If anyone needs that I’d happily share but I’ve little experience with uploading stuff publicly.

1080i just needs to be film framerate, NTSC doesn’t exist in 1080i. Just the codecs. Can be MPEG2, AVC, VC-1, MVC, HEVC. The list goes on.

I suggest uploading to Mega.co.nz and then just share the links in PM.

A single-layer Blu-ray is about 25GB, so 22GB isn’t too out of the ordinary. If your PC is nearing 10 years old, space might be an issue.

A single layered Blu-ray disc is exactly 23.3GB. I buy spindles of 50 of them in the 6X option quite often. Faster to burn and verify through IMGBurn compared to 4X option.

Nope. A link to the past was, which I also absolutely adore. But to say it’s as good as OOT is in my opinion just nostalgia talking, although it is a fantastic game and I play it at least every two years.
I don’t think ALttP is as good or better or worse as OoT since I mentioned I never played it and have no desire to. Not even through emulation.
I’d rather play Dark Souls, S.T.A.L.K.E.R., The Witcher Trilogy, METRO, and okay.

I’d rather have the clarity and all the film grain from the 2014 Mi4K release but color timed how it looked in cinemas in 1984. No revisionist color timing but as close in appearance to the original intention would be great.
Unless if the 2014 Mi4K, the Mi4K with bonus features, AND the UHD are the intention, then all I need is the PCM track.

Hell yeah same goes for the despised but i like it ghostbusters 2.

I enjoy GHOSTBUSTERS II. Just wish the BD of it had way more bonus features.

Swift Sail takes care of that and it’s available pretty early on.

Alright, quit braggin’.

Skyward Sword is my favorite game of all time!

Anyone who puts SS, or any other LoZ game for that matter, above OoT is not a True Zelda Fan™.
Maybe a Phantom Fan. But never a True.

I’ve never played OoT and MM. I honestly don’t see the hype regarding those two.

Then for all you know the hype is justified. And, it is. They are amazing in ways that words can’t convey. OOT in particular is almost like a spiritual journey.

Was OOT the first Zelda game you ever played?

The Phantom Star Wars Fan
Time

Trolls eating spam?
Anime is shit boring to me now and has been for well over a decade. IDGAF.

At least I got mad money for selling the majority of my Star Wars merchandise. Some of the figures and books still aren’t sold. Dunno if there’s still demand for it.
Say the OUT/OOT is finally released on BD/UHD in a full-blown faithful to the source 4K remaster. No, I wouldn’t even care to own it. Does that still make me a Star Wars fan to be apathetic about buying anything Star Wars anymore except to see it in cinemas? Does it still make me a fan to want to rent said discs and then return them?
Hell, I really enjoyed TFA and Rogue One. Especially the fact we’re getting more Star Wars movies and I’m way past being one of those fans of "They’re ruining it!"
Though I would enjoy a Star Wars Story movie which took place thousands of years prior to TPM which would be an anthology similar to Twilight Zone: The Movie and Creepshow.

Stargate 1994 Roland Emmerich (Fan Edit)

Upscaling from low SD quality to 1080p would be very jarring. So doing a full SD quality with high variable bitrate would be fine.
I’ve forgotten if the 15th Anniversary STARGATE BD is from a 2K scan or 4K scan. It looks great with all the film grain. Just as it appeared in 1994 when I viewed it over 14 times in cinemas.

Legend: Expanded Goldsmith Edition (HD)

You’ll be retaining the film grain, correct? Hate unneeded DVNR/EE in fan edits, BDs should look as close to the original film as possible, grain, color timing, and all. Hope this’ll be on a BD25 at least or BD50 with AVC coding. If you’re removing the film grain might as well put it on a compressed DVD5. NO WAX ANYTHING!
Only have the USA Universal Director’s Cut BD with all bonus and was going to get the UK 20th Century FOX since it has the EU Theatrical Cut. Will be happy to get this custom Extended Edition.

Sergio Leone Preservations - Dollars Trilogy, Fistful of Dynamite, Once Upon a Time in the West **All Completed**

LeoneNut said:

The stand-alone remastered Blu-ray of The Good, The Bad and The Ugly from 2014, has the original English Mono.
The gun sounds are all original etc. It obviously downmixes for the extra scenes, but it’s original everywhere else.
Surprised not a lot of people realise.

Also the Italian Blu-ray of Giu La Testa (Duck You Sucker) has the original English Mono track as well, with the correct music in the final flashback, but has Italian Audio for the final line “What About Me?”. But is infinitely better than the censored audio on the MGM discs.

I’d rather have the Original English Mono in lossless and not lossy regarding the stand-alone 4K remastered with the weird color tint TGTBTU. Already own Duck, You Sucker! aka A Fistful of Dynamite MGM BD (for the bonus features and did image comparisons in PNG on Caps-a-Holic.com) and will eventually be buying the IT release. Have The Man with No Name MGM BD set with the corrected audio 4K TGTBTU as the stand-alone release. Keeping the USA MGM DVD Sergio Leone set. Going to buy the DE double feature for A Fistful of Dollars and For a Few Dollars More.
Interested in the correctly color timed OG film appearance with proper blues and whites for TGTBTU, both longer cut and USA theatrical cut. Was going to buy the older MGM DVD for the latter but if you’ve made a custom BD25 or BD50, even better.
I don’t mind having a few extra BD discs to put with the releases I own and will eventually own. Thank Viva for those multi-disc cases.
