The Terminator (1984) - Original Theatrical Mono Preservation
Time

Ugh, I wish I could remember which thread on which message board pointed out that there are 2 different door slam sounds. Who knows, maybe you’re right and they’re the ones that all got it confused. Considering the research you’ve put into this (and my faded memory), I’ll take your word for it. Actually makes me feel better to put a bit of closure on this. The real closure will be when they officially release the film with it’s proper original sound (I can dream, right?).

The door clang is the same in both monos.

Are you sure? I’ve read in other message boards that there’s a difference between the 2. Check out 0:47 of this version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JVeBJw-EzVI

Then compare it to 0:26 in this version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wxgkkJOEHS4

Notice how the first one is much louder. The 2nd one is lower, but sounds more 'correct".

On a different note I decided to finally make a video comparing the subtle differences between the Mono on the LD and the one that was included on the MGM Special Edition DVD.

https://vimeo.com/246332731

One slight difference I believe is present but didnt note in the video is when the Terminator cocks the 12 gauge in the gun shop. Is it me or does it sound like the cocking sound was double tracked on the MGM mono??

THANK YOU!!! I had read about these subtle differences on both this site and others, but never had them all compiled WITH annotations to point them out directly. Nice work…

Superman I-III extended TV cuts: Where have the preservations gone?

In the meantime if anyone wants to preview part 2 on their 5.1 setup let me know. I am eager to get this out, but not before i can verify the sound is ok.

Still waiting on that? I’d say ask the people on the fanedit message board, but I think they have policies against tv edits or non-official releases or something, correct?

Nubie color correction questions?

I’ll be following this thread, as I’m working on a fan edit of Terminator 2 and am trying to remove as much of that steel blue color timing as possible.

Deleted Scenes from Films that ended up in Other Films or TV shows Archive List
Time

TV versions of films I’ve seen that have deleted scenes that have never appeared in any official release:

  • Superman 2 - Yes, there’s more stuff Donner and Lester shot that hasn’t been released
  • Ace Ventura - About 10-12 minutes of footage
  • Stephen King’s Thinner - 5 or so minutes I caught on a horror channel
  • The Birdcage - A good 20 minutes (roughly 6-8 scenes) of footage

Movies I’ve seen in recent years that have added footage that I’ve found on the interwebs:

  • First Blood
  • Cobra
  • National Lampoon’s Loaded Weapon part 1

I’m sure there’s more but I just woke up and can’t really think before coffee, lol.

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

Looks like the green is removed. Most Matrix fans would say this is heresy, but I actually prefer neutral colors. When I was younger and had the movie on DVD (the first dvd with the snap case), I remember watching behind the scenes clips from the movie that didn’t have the green, or even the music. I remember thinking: “Hmm. Wouldn’t it be cool if they released an alternate version like that. I’d love to try putting in different music and see if it fits”.

Yeah, I was already into fan editing long before I even heard of it, lol.

I do hope that a 35mm scan of The Terminator will come to the OT community sometime, but we’ll just have to wait and see. 😄

Sign me up for that as well…Talk to the guys that did the “Silver Screen” edits of Star Wars and Raiders of the Lost Ark.

The Terminator - Color Regrade
Time

Please don’t take this the wrong way guys, but I still have a copy of The Terminator on vhs, and it isn’t that blue. The color was always pretty neutral, except for the future scenes which are always blue (though some trailers have those scenes look very pink/magenta pushed. Probably Cameron’s floodlights to help the blue once the filters were added. Same thing for T2 trailers).

I also have a very old German dvd of Terminator that looks like it was taken from a film print (lots of print damage and cigarette burns), and it’s actually very teal, but not the same kind of teal like the blu-ray. It’s more natural, if that makes any sense.

Here’s some screencaps:

It’s the first DE/German dvd on the left. The only one with a 1.66 aspect ratio.

So the original print was NOT in fact, as Teal as so many have said? Not so much here maybe, but on other sites where we discuss this. Cuz I have an old german DVD that actually has a very teal color to it. Not so much like the current Region A blu-rays (much more natural, IMO), but many have argued the case that this is why the film was originally teal.

Personally, I want it to look like (and of course, sound like) the way I watched it growing up. So it doesn’t even matter to me.

The Terminator - Color Regrade
Time

Yeah, my internet has ben slow-to-not working on and off for the past month now and I have no idea why. Doing that post actually took about 20 minutes because I had to wait till roughly 50 seconds of those videos loaded and I could hear. I researched about 5 videos and must’ve gotten them mixed up.

Also, another thing others have noted in the differences in the mono mixes is that you can hear the motorcycle Arnold is riding BEFORE we see him riding it right after the sex scene, while in others you don’t hear it till we see him. My old VHS copy is the former.

Lucky you!! I was supposed to see a 35mmm print a few weeks ago, and they changed it to a DCP at the last minute. I got my money back, but lost out on Sunday pay at work (called out). Aside from what Dek mentioned, pay close attention to the sound of the door hitting the wall when Arnold swings it open after he says “Ill be back” (It’s right before he comes back and kills the guy with his car). There are 2 mono mixes of the film, and both have a different sound effect for when the door slams open.

Ah, I checked out the screencaps. Gonna stick with version 1 simply because I actually like the overdone colors. Gives it an older “VHS” style color-bleed kinda thing IMO, lol.

Color matching and prediction: color correction tool v1.3 released!
Time

Will this work if I’m trying to take the color timing of a non-anamorphic dvd and make an anamorphic dvd match it’s color timing? Basically, I have a non-anamorphic dvd of Terminator 2 that has more neutral color timing (less blue) and I wanna use a better qualitty dvd source that has the same (or close to it) color timing.

Audio Isolation Using Per-Sample (or near per sample) Mode Averaging
Time

I’m wondering if this will help me with my edit Of Terminator 2. I need to isolate and extract all the dialogue, as it’s the only original audio my edit will have. All other sounds are being rebuilt from the ground up. Gunshots, explosions, the T-1000’s noises, ambience, and of course, the score.
