Hi folks!
 
I hope everyone is well. Loads of things have happened since my last post. My family has gotten bigger, a move occurred, work is busier than ever, and more relevant to your interests, i purchased a Yamaha CS-80 (an expensive item I can tell you), a Casio CZ-101, and a new computer, for use of this project.
 
I have a few announcements to make. Last year i received some tapes of some small material. Stuff that has not made it into any BR Soundtrack release so far. The material has been remastered to the highest quality possible added seamlessly to the other tracks. After having finished, gone back and started over, and finished again, Disc 1 is finally complete and locked! I considered the idea of releasing each disc when completed but I holding on to the notion that it will be much better to release the project as a whole. There will however (as before) be sample tracks. The final product will contain FLAC files, with a preview release just before as MP3s. There will also be a contest to see who wins a "Box Set Copy" of the collection, and there will be voting on the artwork.
 

And lastly, I am moving this project to Facebook for convenience as some others here have done. But a HUGE thanks goes out to everyone at originaltrilogy.com  for the love kindness and support!
Facebook addy posting very soon!

This project is NOT finished or completed, but it will be. I have not posted anything because as some of you have assumed, I have been very busy. Life, etc.

I have done some further work since I have last posted, but not a lot and nothing to warrent an update. When I have anything to report in the way of progress or anything else related to this project, I will.

Nearly three years after the first post, does still somebody believe this will see the light of day ? I agree with VK2019 - I can't help but feel sorry for you, but for other reasons...you started this fanboy fantasy (and I'm sure you have started with your project) - but after such a long time I don't think you'll find an end for it. This is not meant as bitching or moaning, but I think it's time to end this fantasy...I lost my believe in this project long ago and have no interest anymore for this, but it's fun to see from time to time how this thread is going on. Good luck for your project and congratulations if it really finds an end (I think in 2019, eh ?), but for me it's simply a fanboy fantasy...

Happy Christmas to you too mate. :)

I hate to say it, but I think I am joining the growing ranks of skeptics and non-believers here.

Is it possible that we could get at least one high quality sample?

 

If you don't want to wait, then don't. I'm not asking you to. 

Like I said before, I have posted samples before. But I haven't for awhile. I have also noticed that some of those samples have ended up on a couple of bootlegs.

I will post a sample or two soon, but not at the moment. Mostly because I frankly just don't have the time. I barely have the time to post this.

I'm sorry I'm not done, but I'm not. It is what it is, and it will be done when it's done. Your patience, as much as I respect it, has no baring or relevance on this project or my life. Sorry to sound short but this should go without saying, especially given the amount of times it has come up. This project will be finished, and then released. Even if I stopped posting replies or updates, or simply had no forum at all.

Now if you don't mind, that's the last time I plan on addressing the "are we there yet" heckling portion of this forum.

SLIPSTREAM image request AND WIDESCREEN preservation request (Sky Movies subscribers see posts 4 onwards)
Time

skyjedi2005 said:

too bad no one is offering the japan laserdisc rip for free. there is a guy selling them at his site, bootlegs for sale is a no no especially here on these forums.

I refuse to pay money for something that should be shared with fans for free, or with just blanks and postage costs.

People who sell these preservations are the ones who will eventually get people in trouble who do it for love and make no profit.

supposedly this film was shot 2:35:1 anamorphic and even had a 70mm release with six track sound.

all you get on the dvd is a vhs quality fullscreen rip with a tame dolby 2.0.

the uk release has better cover art very much like the laserdisc cover, you can find it on amazons uk site but not in high res.

I like this movie i have it on vhs, Mark Hamill is awesome in this movie.

I also have the time runner vhs and wonder why there is no dvd.

 

I have a rip of that Laserdisc (and it is in 2:35:1), however, it has japanese subs over the image and it needs color correction. Would anyone be interested using this and commiting to a preservation project? I don't have the time to do it myself.

I don't know at all the Blade Runner sountrack but guys, I love this thread !... Thrilling !!!

Good luck for your work. Such multi-sourced stuff needs so much time.

Just quote myself as a reminder of my feelings toward such efforts...

That said, I must tell I'm extremly curious of one thing, and perhaps I wouldn't dare asking if I wasn't there to present a "similar" project on these forums, but after all the reactions I've read here through months I can't keep myself of wondering, so here it is, adressed to the host of the topic of course:

 

Why haven't you provided the least sample to show a bit of the quality of your work ?...

 

PS: Thanks to the angry persons around not to take advantage of this question to "strike back"...

 

 ChainsawAsh is correct. I had stuff up, samples of a few tracks. Works in progress. I'll post something new soon.

Focuspuller, I'm sorry to say this but... you can't have your cake and eat it too! While you were away from this forum, a discussion started and you can't just expect to show up now and tell everyone to shut up. Of course, the main topic here is YOUR set of BR recordings but we are ALL Blade Runner soundtrack fans and we are ALL looking for THE ultimate soundtrack... We all understand you have been dealing with personal issues in the meanwhile but you HAVE been away from this forum for a while and life goes on... What Spiderwalk did was very polite and totally in oder; he said it himself, this is the last time he will talk about it... But I think most of us here still appreciate this final update to close up the discussion in question. p.s. Thanks to both of you for all the amazing work you've been doing and thanks for the recent updates!

 

This thread is for this project. There are a million recources and places to discuss other soundtracks, topics, etc. You know what the rules are. Just respect this forum, thread, and project by following them. Thank you.

Quick Update:

 

As things stand Disc 1 is complete (with the exception of a few small tweaks). Disc 2 has been a long effort do to a few problematic tracks. Disc 3 is about 70% done.

 

Among some of bonus content to be include is an excerpt from a 1986 Vangelis concert. The track is a medley of Memories Of Green and The Love Theme. Quality isn't great but I have cleaned it up (tape hiss/pop removal, speed corrected, etc).

First of all let me say this is the last time i will mention my project now that Focuspuller's back in the game.

If anyone wants to download it in Flac, it's up on the blade runner soundtrack group forum in the files section, with a few tweaks here and there and upgraded artwork.

@digitalfreaknyc, you are completely right about the prologue, it was the cleanest source i had without hiss or distortion.

But it was only a portion of the first track about 2mins out of 130mins total, so you can't write off a project on that basis.

This has been rectified now for the flac version, although the speed up was barely perceptible.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I don't question how much of a fan you are, and you have been well indulged in your posts. But to continue as you have is bad form. Please respect this thread and this project.

hi guys.

 

Sorry for the long delay but things have been a bit crazy at my end. I have been dealing with a variety of issues that are mostly personal in nature. All that aside the project continues, although as we speak I am in the process of replacing a motherboard, ram, a processor, and main hard drive. This has merely caused a delay, not a setback. I will have more to say later today but I wanted to check in and let everyone know that I am still alive, and so is this project.

 

Before I go I wanted to quickly touch on another note. I have just caught up on all the posts I have missed (both on this board and private). I am glad to have the continued support from all of you that I have received and I PROMISE that your support will be rewarded. As far as other projects go however I want to state what I have said before. I support all Blade Runner related fan projects, fan edits, etc. That being said this thread in particular is for this project, just as all the other thread here are about those projects. Let me be clear, I have no problem with fellow fans trading and informing others about all the wonderful sources out there, and there are many. I do ask however that you restrict within reason conversation on this thread to this project. All other topics about other similar but separate projects should be moved privately, or, for example, to the Yahoo Blade Runner group which is as stated by myself and others is a hub for a lot of these kind of projects recently mentioned.

  

Thank you again for your continued support and I will post again later today.

Man, I can't find the Facebook links. The one I went to doesn't seem to have any pics from the concert, and I don't know the others. I did a search here because someone (005?) listed them all a while back, but no dice. If someone could do that again, I'd be sure to bookmark them this time! ;)

My photo albums are set to private so you'd have to add me as a friend first. Just search for "ady adywan"

Now that would be terrifying. lol

 Hey say what you will, if it wasn't for Howard The Duck (and the big money hole he dug for himself because if it), Lucas would never have sold Pixar, and that company would NEVER be what it is today.

The Criterion Laserdisc Preservation Thread
Time

I love "The Game Criterion", although the copy someone gave me was a compressed single layer disc instead of the uncompressed version. But I love it all the same. 

Speaking of commentaries. Would applying a commentary of, say the Robocop Criterion dvd (out of print) along with other "special features" to a nicer, newer print of the film count as a preservation?

Elmore Leonard Workprints
Time

Doctor M said:

I was wondering if anyone has heard of a workprint of Killshot.

Novel: Elmore Leonard, Director: John Madden (Shakespeare in Love), Starring: Diane Lane, Mickey Rourke, Thomas Jane, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Rosario Dawson.

The movie got bounced around for several years before going straight to DVD.  During that time it seems the Weinsteins performed a hatchet job on the film.

According to Wikipedia, audience found the plot 'too confusing', which usually translates as 'too smart for them'.  They also disliked Johnny Knoxville so his entire subplot was removed.

Now I'm not a fan of Knoxville (at ALL), but his character was supposed to be unlikable.  I consider that mission accomplished, and not a reason to cut a film.

Anyway, considering the quality of the cast, director, and source material I can't help thinking this is another case of the Weinsteins cutting a pretty good film until it's tasteless, homogenous, soylent green that the masses can digest.

So again... has anyone heard of/seen/smelt of a workprint?

 I heard of a workprint/screener that was floating around months before the dvd release. I may have seen it up in torrent land, but don't quote me on that.

 

I would support a release of this i really enjoyed this film and the talent.
