Starwars 4k77?
Time

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?

MAC or PC
Time

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.

Do you think Disney will release the unaltered versions for DVD and blue ray
Time

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?

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?

Song Of The South

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.

What type of DVD labels should I use?
Time

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.

transfer resolution of 4x6 photo prints for preservation?
Time

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.

insane ways to get the message across
Time

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?

how to rate movies
Time

here’s my system

  1. if it was made in the last ten years, it probably sucks.

  2. if it’s getting rave reviews and I’m seeing posters at walmart, it probably sucks.

  3. if it was directed by jj abrams, I KNOW IT SUCKS.

  4. if its a remake of something good, see number 3.

DVD REGION CODE HELP
Time

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.

"fatal glass of beer" 16mm hd project
Time

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?

best legal movie download sites.
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.
