Bond Laserdisc Preservations: 1962-1971

Also for those interested who aren’t aware, La La Land records has just released the complete and remastered score for DAD and is limited to 5000. EON has confirmed they are watching the release and if it is successful LLL will do more score releases.

I plan on getting the DAD score though I have a digital copy of the “complete score” from a while back… IMO both releases are worth having as there appear to be a handful of tracks exclusive to each release.

Didn’t know that MGM/LLL were discussing the possibility of more Bond scores… The World Is Not Enough needs an expanded release badly! But so do others too!

Should we let him know about the Partly Despecialized Editions? This rabbit hole goes pretty deep.

There’s a partly Despecialized Edition? Some of the changes in ESB i actually like (Ian McDiarmid as The Emperor, better view of the Wampa, extra windows in Cloud City.) are those on The Spleen?

kk650 has Semi-Specialized versions of each of the films. Yes they are on the Spleen

The trilogy is on Netflix in the US… I wonder if they are different masters than the blus…

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

There is also a scene from Spider Man 2 (the establishing shot outside of the “The Importance Of Being Ernest” auditorium) that was recycled for a handful of “How I Met Your Mother” episodes. Most of the time, the poster of Kirsten Dunst was blurred out a bit. However, in one episode, her face is clearly visible.

Harmy's STAR WARS Respecialized Edition '97 - AVCHD and MKV now out!

Very nice work, kinda cool to see this in comparison to the Despecialized Edition. Tbh, I would really like to see a “mix” between the Despecialized an the Special Editions, as some changes are definitely not that bad.

Check out kk650’s Semi-Specialized series… He did the original trilogy in that fashion.

The Simpsons: Embiggened Edition
Time

I wonder if the 4:3 versions on the FX app are the original broadcast versions without the aforementioned changes… Those are the ones I watch and they seem to be original broadcast versions as many of those streaming episodes still have the “Presented in Dolby Surround” logo at the start of the episode. The audio definitely has a different sound than that of its 16:9 counterpart on the app.

"Scrubs" coming to Comedy Central in Widescreen and HD

I can’t. I feel bad for not being able to because you just made my day.

I found a promo on Comedy Central, but it’s pillared box with a border for the channel to promote it. However, it does look like it 16:9. Hope someone can confirm and see if Scrubs got a long awaited remaster 😃

I would LOVE to see the entire series on blu with all of the music from the original broadcasts… But for now, having the show on CC might be the best we can get.

EDIT: Nevermind! 😕

I also saw a post/comment thread on Zach Braff’s facebook page… He confirmed that not only will it be airing for this marathon, but it will also become a regular part of Comedy Central’s weekday afternoon lineup.

You should also check out this tweet, then.

It’s definitely not happening. He would know.

Damn! So much for that!

"Scrubs" coming to Comedy Central in Widescreen and HD

On May 29, Comedy Central will be airing a marathon of Scrubs episodes. (Possibly more after the marathon as well??) The clips of the show used in the promo for the marathon were in widescreen, leading me to believe these episodes will be broadcast that way. Scrubs was one of those shows that was framed for 4:3 broadcast, but protected for the widescreen format. The clips from the promos appeared to have the frames opened up horizontally.

The only seasons currently available in widescreen (as far as I know) are Season 8 and 9.

My question is… Is anyone out there capable of (or even interested in) capturing these episodes? Ordinarily I would not ask, but I don’t have the technological capabilities to do so myself.

5.1 surround sound on Despecialized Editions?
Time

CatBus said:

Supposedly, h_h got access to Pro DPL decoder software for the latest DeEd’s. So ROTJ 2.5 may sound better (or not).

Correct. The most recent 5.1 versions for all three films were created using official Dolby software, so they will sound quite close to what comes out of a Prologic II equipped receiver, aside from the minor modifications I made for the handling of low frequency content.

Actually, I’ve given some thought to using the original Prologic for a possible new version, since the surrounds would then be more fully mono, and front-channel crosstalk greatly reduced. This may not be an improvement to everyone’s ears, but it would be a rather more authentic presentation. I’ve done some tests and I like the way it sounds for these movies quite a lot. Combine that with a new approach to the LFE track and it could turn out very well indeed . . . assuming, of course, that I have the time to do it. With a Disney release of the original versions not looking likely any time soon, my motivation to revisit them seems to once again be on the rise (based as much on my annoyance with them as a company as anything).

Sounds incredible!
