If I had a blatant sock here, the username would be DJ Master Cheese Noodle Pirate and I don’t know why… I’d use it to solely post random recipes, riddles, and rhymes. No shitposting or trolling.

But I wouldn’t. (Still would make a thread for food recipes though so we could share it.)

Hi. Sorry to bring back this old thing, but I was wondering where I can find the Criterion audio track commentary now so I can include it with my Blu-ray.

Ok, thanks

Thanks to answer

I should still have it up on Mega and I’ll share a link. It’s either AC3 or I dunno. Wasn’t there another commentary besides the Criterion one?
I’ve many more Laserdisc commentaries.

For King Kong (1933), there’s the Criterion LD, but also the Image Intertainment one

Do you have those two ?

I shared the link to Mega for the Criterion commentary in a PM to you. I’ll look to see if I have the Image Entertainment commentary on my server.

Found it. Will upload to Mega and share the link with you in PM tomorrow. Only 137MB and AC3.

I started with Tales of Monkey Island (at its launch), then got the Sam & Max trilogy, Back to the Future, and The Walking Dead Season 1. Interestingly, I started watching the TWD show because I played the game.

… while the Mass Effect Trilogy is one of my favorite series, I’m not sure how it relates to adventure games.

Cause I’ve been playing it lately and making sure to do the Paragon choices in 1 and 2 before 3. Now 3 and I wish Andromeda had the same team from it instead of the lazy ones which has tons of glitches and bad animation.
The Secret of Monkey Island is the first of the series and played them all. Tales of Monkey Island doesn’t count to me for the series. Random, yes.

Only two TellTale games I own are Wallace & Gromit along with Back to the Future. I might have another but I completely lost interest. One random game I completely uninstalled was Dying Light because there were no choices for the storyline and didn’t have an after the game play.
So yes, I consider TellTale a gimmick and don’t even know why I have The Witcher Adventure game for free, which should’ve been made by a different company. Not gonna play their Batman games either nor wasting my time torrenting them.
At least with the Mass Effect Trilogy (have all DLC and lods e mods) the game saves carry over and NewGame+.
But with Resident Evil 6 I’m barely playing it off and on. Really enjoying the Styx duology.

Have 1 Remastered and 2 Remastered for free on Steam. Cause I already had the base versions for both ages ago.
System Shock 3 happening at all or is it a pipe dream? BioShock 4 (I doubt it)?

I’ve been playing a link to the past. It’s still great.

The Parallel Worlds ROMHack is too frustrating for its own good.

MASS EFFECT 1, 2, & 3 for PC with mods. Currently 2 and 3 at the same time. No idea if I want to play Andromeda or not. Heard horror stories and not the good kind, but interesting premise.
Still want a sequel to Jade Empire, THE THING, and RIDDICK. Replaying the BORDERLANDS Trilogy and never the TellTale shite.

Also been playing STYX: Master of Shadows and STYX: Shards of Darkness. Need to get playing Sid Meier’s Civilization: Beyond Earth and VI.

So if the current Doctor is a woman, can The Rani be a man now? What about Romana?
Change it up a bit. TBH not even bothered by the news, just indifferent.

Hey guys
Where can I find the non dnr Version?
Searching a few times, but can’t find it and the Usenet Files are Offline.
Can someone help? The Bluray DNR Version are very bad 😦

Thanx a lot

The current Director’s Cut Blu-ray disc release for STAR TREK II: The Wrath of Khan is still the best looking out of the TOS films since it received a full 4K restoration. Original color timing too.

Needs a 4K remaster. Especially with both video and audio being low bitrates. Could look and sound even better.

Interest Check: The Matrix 1 pass Blu-ray regrade. Based upon earlier 35mm release.
Time

^…^ said:

I was sure the LD had a different color grading; lately, another member did a capture and discover that it is identical to DVD, so at the moment there are two official gradings, LD/DVD/HDTV (open matte, don’t know if exists an OAR version) and BD/HD DVD.

The LD/DVD/HDTV is original (At least the 1999 DVD) and DVD (newer)/BD/HD-DVDbut ths the revised. Already mentioned the current BD/HD DVD doesn’t have very good compression. Would be nice to have a 4K scan with both color timings. Would WB do it? My guess is they’d release other movies first before getting around to it.
My take is the BD is the best video source for current color timing and the HDTV, even though
it’s open matte and better compression (details), for OG color timing. Take note LD and DVD both have lower color space compared to UHD/BD/HD DVD. I even own certain releases of titles from two separate countries and companies with wildly differing color timing.

(i.e. Mona Lisa. The USA Image Entertainment uses a vastly outdated transfer, is a much older release, while the newer UK ARROW Video disc is a brand new glorious 4K scan. Proper color, compression, and film grain retention.
http://www.caps-a-holic.com/c.php?go=1&a=0&d1=6123&d2=6124&s1=57752&s2=57764&i=2&l=1)
A better example would be another stylized science fiction or action film which received a full remaster compared to what the drama received above. Of course if a film has more than one official cut, said cuts need to be directly compared to each other if they vary in terms of color timing.

YMMV.

PNG is superior to JPG since the former is lossless with better compression and the latter has more artifacting. So for image comparisons, PNG should always be the option clicked on regarding Caps-a-Holic.com

I wouldn’t fully trust Amazon UK reviews. Better to browse various forums regarding the video and audio side in specific threads. Seems to me that person who left the review is a Twilight Time fanboy. More research needed though. (See if DVDBeaver mentions anything. Same goes for Blu-ray.com forum, AVS, HiDefDigest.)
I dunno, really.

I know all that, but it doesn’t seem to be the actual original 1999 color timing. I’ll ask the Cinémathèque what year their print is from.

One of the main reasons I’m still keeping the DVD released in '99. WB needs to give The Matrix a proper remaster anyway since the Blu-ray disc release, even the HD DVD too, uses a far older transfer. Random mention but I do own the video game THE MATRIX: Path of Neo for PC (IMO far superior to Reloaded and Revolutions) which also uses clips from the films. Really don’t remember what color timing those clips were in-game though, for the first film. Should be a video on Youtube from someone either making a custom cutscene compilation or playthrough.
Maybe color matching?

Okay, so I just got back from a 35mm screening of “The Matrix” in the French Cinémathèque in Paris, France. It had French subtitles and I am not aware of any rerelease of the movie, so it was most likely a print from 1999. And I was shocked to see that the Blu-ray is actually not that far from being alike in terms of color grading. It’s not accurate in every part, that’s for sure, but man, the 1st color grading we’ve seen on video back in the day is dead wrong, and it was not the same as the 35mm scan released by our pals here either. Some parts looked alike, that’s for sure, but the Blu-ray also in other parts. And when toying with the color temperature on my TV screen from medium to warm and sometimes the other way around, I manage to closer match the Blu-ray with what I’ve just seen in 35mm.

The HDTV for the screencap is the original cinematic color timing. The Blu-ray is the revised one which matches the sequels.

One, use Caps-a-Holic.com with PNG clicked along with full-screen comparisons to check. Twilight Time usually has shite compression so I’d automatically use Arrow instead.
Two, both appear to be the original audio. Twilight Time (Re-release) uses lossless DTS-HD Master Audio at 48kHz, 24-bit and the UK Arrow uses uncompressed LPCM at 48kHz, 24-bit.
Three, I don’t really think it needs it but other Sam Peckinpah movies should. (Great or adequate HD video with film grain perhaps on The Getaway and The Wild Bunch but with uncompressed Laserdisc audio.)
Four, the Limited Edition is currently on sale on Arrow Shop for only £12.99/$16.83. https://www.arrowfilms.co.uk/shop/index.php?route=product/product&keyword=Bring &product_id=887
(IMO Twilight Time aren’t worth it to own at all.)
Five, best to focus on titles which have far less than adequate Blu-ray disc releases from around the planet. i.e. the aforementioned Sam Peckinpah titles.

I’d love to see an HD (1080i/p) preserved 2-Disc custom BD25s for both uncensored cuts of Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid. 2005 Special Edition (115:08) and the 1988 Turner Preview Version (121:28). Maybe even a Theatrical Cut reconstruction too on a BD25. BUT my guess is Warner Archive will eventually release an awesome pressed Blu-ray disc for it.
