Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

The UK theatrical cut and all pre-2012 UK video releases have altered sound effects, and trim the human sacrifice scene heavily.

Can you possibly fix the one for Minority Report?

It is true that the BD has a different color timing than the DVD, but it’s far more likely that the BD is closer to theatrically accurate because its look is very consistent with Spielberg’s 2000s movies (ex. War of the Worlds) and the DVD looks much more teal than it needs to be

I have yet another Back to the Future change

In part 2 the black screen that originally accompanied the scene when Marty got knocked out, on all post-2010 home video releases (which sadly means the 4K release too) it was shortened, it originally played for a good 5 seconds and the tail end of the music that plays during the next scene has been chopped off too as a direct result

This is so bizarre considering it was intact on the 2001 DVD

Also on the 2010 blu-ray of the first, the credits were squished by 25% due to a mastering error, this was not an issue on the earlier DVD releases and fortunately was fixed on the 4K master and subsequent blu-ray

Agreed. Would be properly compared to a theatrical print compared what was used for DVD. Which DVDs should never be used for color comparisons, same regarding LaserDisc, because of lacking color gamut compared to a film print or digital intermediate.

It Follows was changed from theatrical run to home video release. In theaters, the music was dynamic and overpowered any background sound effects. On all home video versions (in my research) the music has been pushed to the background while sound effects brought up.

I’m not imagining this. Others have noticed it as well. And I have audio recordings (proof) of several of the eight times I saw it in theaters.

I wish they’d just release the original theatrical version.

Despite owning a blu-ray copy, I refuse to watch it because this butchering of the sound has tainted it for me.
