To Dek. Yeah, this project is quite superfluous even though it’d make for a great BD50, not BD25. The 4K UHD is on a BD100, looks/sounds stellar (Theatrical Cut and not “Director’s” Cut), and honestly this project would be a nice bonus third disc with the current release. What I do like about this is it’s referencing other prints and not prior physical media releases. Should happen more often in this case. i.e. Preservations using film prints instead of just grabbing files from random discs and matching it to some bullshit archaic format such as Laserdisc or VHS.
Regarding T2, this goes for many other titles which have yet to receive a proper release which is more widely available (on Spleen) and not just through Team Blu. The current 4K UHD and BD release for T2 is an atrocity as I mentioned but isn’t for ALIEN on the 4K UHD. ALIENS needs a new scan from 35mm because the Blu-ray disc has been altered from Theatrical version and hence is it’s own new cut exclusive to the release. Colour timing is whack too.
So yes, still “trolling”, still wanting this as an extra disc. Not with Anthology/Archives/etc. but a stand-alone.
