Did the Rogue One or Force Awakens trailers do the same to you? I definitely agree this was not the most enticing trailer in the world…

I don’t remember. I enjoyed Rogue One more than TFA. Still not going to own either. Movie tickets are enough for me regarding Star Wars merchandise.

Kind of annoyed the GOTG 2 tv spots apparently give away the death of a character. Don’t know if it’s major or a minor one though.

Then stop watching the TV spots.

Well, excuse me for watching tv in bed, half groggy recovering from a migraine, and not having lighting fast super hero reflexes grabbing the remote. 😉

Must get faster!

So, I watched The Last Jedi teaser trailer only once. Then I immediately went back and watched THOR: RAGNAROK teaser trailer 5~6. I can’t stop watching it. My dream cosmic THOR movie which I’ve been waiting for since I was a kid in the 1980’s finally coming to life.

Way more excited to see THOR: RAGNAROK over Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING combined just because of the teaser trailer. It’s the THOR movie I’ve been wanting to see since I was a kid in the 1980’s. Especially with listening to LED ZEPPELIN’s studio discography and Immigrant Song is very related to the character. Glad Marvel Studios has the confidence to make the THOR movie they always wanted.
Highly recommend reading the Walt Simonson The Mighty THOR Omnibus. (Jane Foster as “THOR” is a stupidly idiotic choice in the comics.)

IDGAF about wanting to see STAR WARS: The Last Jedi since it’s at the bottom of my 2017 movie list.

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 &quot;Official&quot; 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.

Edit of Collateral

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.
