I’ve been getting a lot of PMs about people wanting access to the folder. If you didn’t already have access before from donating I’m not going to give access unless it’s someone working on the project directly. I will not be handing out downloads for many reasons so please don’t ask. If you have donated and can’t access the folder for some reason I will make sure to fix that, but please do not clutter my DMs with download requests if you haven’t contributed anything to the project

I wish I would have seen this post before reading it you were having a hard time getting a laser disc copy my son has a laser disc copy I would have graciously donated the audio track to you. Oh well maybe next time very much looking forward to the release

I’m glad I ended up with a copy of the laserdisc.
Even though it appears to be the same scan as the DVD
with the beginning of the movie looking like it was scanned
during an earthquake, the coloring is completely different.
I believe it is much closer the original film than the DVD.
You do get the superior audio track in my opinion.
I ended up transferring an upscaled version of the laserdisc
and creating a Blu-ray for me to watch until the 4k restoration
is complete. I included the 24 Bit 96 kHz audio from the laserdisc
and the Dolby Digital 5.1 audio from the DVD for comparison.
I also included the English, French and Spanish subtitles from
the DVD.
If anyone is interested, I can provide a link to download this version.
I have an ISO file that can be burned to a single layer BD-R so you
get a hard copy with menus and I made an MKV file that is the
same size. PM me for the link.

Outta curiosity what was your upscale method? HDMI Box or simple software scaling?
