just saw the youtube sample and was very impressed. A 4k restoration from eastman and technicolor prints. couln’t find much out about this other than it’s happening and it’s not the same as the team negative one job, haven’t seen anything here either. Does anyone have the full story?
any goodwill jvc with 4 heads.
hmm, windows 10 is the biggest joke ever, I’ve heared it’s even worse than 7, they even supply the spyware now. macs are just overpriced, and isn’t most 3d animation been pretty much a linux dominated thing?
good to know, I’m currently looking to get a copy of the book to get a better grip of what “may” have been cut from the movie.
maybe fox got in the way?
anyone considered maybe fox is the problem, mind you Im not giving disney and kind of break, i’ve been boycotting them for other reasons for some time now but if alamo roadhouse advertises 97 special edition and then they show 2011 version, could it be that fox pushed their “distribution Rights” I mean unlike alot of disney films, star wars can’t even be screen by non-profits, yes I checked. I may be spit-balling, but I’m just wondering if it’s not just disney? Maybe?
down with both of them!
adventures of long john silver, cheese but still fun.
aside from the laserdisc and vhs is there any better source of this movie? I know it gets aired occasionally and many pages back someone said they aired it in HD, but the quality was no better. There’s several illegal dvds on ebay and a it supposedely gets screened in 35mm once in awhile. Netflix and Amazon have a streaming option for it, does anyone know of anything better out there?
nobody complains about the “Birth of a Nation” bluray. Disney has no qualms about using miss piggy to promote abortion, but god forbid they annoy some leftist troll with song of the south. sigh.
seems most people who don’t know better just refer to all the special editions as “The 97 Special Edition” even if they are talking about 04 or 2011 versions.
just curious if anyone here saw any of them. Were they using film or digital? Was it actually the 97 versions, iv seen numerous websites that think the blurays are the 97 version as dumb as that sounds. how was the quality?

It costs more per disc but you could get a lightscribe drive,about $1.50 per disc and around 50 or 60 bucks for the drive, but they make cool looking discs. oh and it’s currently cd and dvd media only, no lightscribe blurays are available yet.
neither, I always wipe any new computer clean and put linux mint in its place. windows today stinks, and mac costs too much
here’s a few of mine I’d like to re-watch:
House on Haunted Hill(vincent price version)
The Brain that wouldn’t Die
Carnival of Souls(1962)
City of the Dead
Tales of the 3rd Dimension
I couldn’t find much info on this and I’ve got a bunch of old family photos i want to digitize so I thought Id ask here. What is the practical max resolution of an old school 35 film photo print? I know film varies from case to case but at want point would I just be getting wasting time? my scanner maxes out at 1200 dpi which if I did my math right is about 20 megapixels.
Okay we all have ideas on how to convince Disney to re-release the theatrical cut. So which methods have you wanted to try but were afraid too? OR have actually gone and done. please, remember this is for crazy ideas.
I imagine a t shirt with “Lucas Raped My Childhood…” on the front, and " And Disney legalized It" on the back would get the point across, but that might wind up getting me sued or something.
Any other insane ideas?
I think it’s high time to move beyond petitions, try picket lines with signs and T-shirts, outside theaters whenever the next movie hits.
here’s my system
if it was made in the last ten years, it probably sucks.
if it’s getting rave reviews and I’m seeing posters at walmart, it probably sucks.
if it was directed by jj abrams, I KNOW IT SUCKS.
if its a remake of something good, see number 3.
what are you converting them into? just pc files like mpeg4 or wmv? if that’s the case then boils down to different players supporting different formats. a pc obviously can play any file format with the right decoder. try a file converter or some dvd authoring software after ripping the disk.
wow, anything would help, almost surprised no one’s chewed you out for cutting crap out like I got for temple of doom, lol.
well I managed to get an original print of this silly short film from 1933. Its sort of hard to find in good quality so ill be looking into getting a decent hd transfer of it done. since this is in the public domain, i’ll be able to easily distribute it at archive.org or on disks to friends. one thing I’m still debating is if I should go full 1080 or 720, cost although not paramount is a factor in this as I have no way to do the actual transfer myself. Am I going to gain much of anything by going with the higher 1080 transfer?
oh and I forgot, we need to get some annoying political style bumper stickers.
let’s get a bunch of rude signs, boycott all new movies, and stand outside theaters picketing the new releases. Then wait for some reporter to go looking for a story. quiet petitions and whining online are a waste of time.
yes, i know downloads are second rate quality compared to disks, but what download sites have you used? Im not talking about streaming sites and on demand stuff where once you cancel a subscription you cant watch your movies, but actyual downloads where you get a video file on a pc hard drive. currently the only site i use is archive.org, which is free. Any suggestions for other pay and/or free sites. Im only interested in legal sites.
