digitalfreaknyc, I just wanted to say thanks for making me aware this cut even existed, let alone that it was going to air on HBO. I have it sitting on my DVR and waiting for me. Thanks.

HI
Can you make few screenshots & samples?

Okay, I’m unfollowing this thread for now. I’ll check back in a few weeks. Hopefully the children will learn how to play in the same sandbox by then. :: smh ::

okay I just read through this thread and have to say that digitalfreaknyc quality of the uncut HBO 1080 capture of the Godfather as a 2x BD25 release looks amazing and would be enough for me.
I can’t stand arguing about screenshots or micro details which you can’t even see if you watch it on your TV in real motion. Some people think just a bit too weird.
digitalfreaknyc’s old AMC censored version looked great and the uncensored HBO one looks also great. I totally support the digitalfreaknyc release.

The whole thing aired uncensored on HBO in January. A 1080i and 720p rip of this exist on public trackers.

I’ve looked everywhere for a 1080i rip (Usenet, torrent sites, tehparadox, etc,) but to no avail. I wish it existed but I believe the above mentioned is not true.

I found a comparison a while back, but the ~15GB 720p version floating around is definitely the best-looking version. Go for that one.

There is no 1080i version available.

I would still love to see digitalfreaknyc’s 2x BD25 version of it. Even if it’s just 720, who needs 1080 for that old transfer anyways ? As far as I know it isn’t possible to convert a compressed 720p MKV container to a BD25 without loss in quality.

My version is 1080I and, I believe, been deleted. There’s no reason to keep it with the 720p being higher quality. And you can easily burn that to a single BD-R

No joy on my end either, the best I can grab is 640x480 325.59 MB.

I’m now questioning whether they even provided a 720p stream in the first place…

They did. I watched it. You can still watch the 720p stream on the site and its definitely better

It seems that with the Firefox extension Flash video Downloader I can grab it in 720p, I’d suggest you try that 😃

Thank you!!! I’ll definitely try it when I get home. I wonder why it won’t grab it otherwise

Thanks, that also worked for me.

Just don’t forget to visit settings and untick “Enable Product Search” to turn off their Adware. 😉

JEDIT: I celebrated prematurely - I made three download attempts and on every occasion, the 1280 x 720 video was unplayable, despite trying five different programs. On subsequent attempts, it is impossible to download any version of the video using the plug-in.

Any GF related stuff on the horizon in the near future?

Has anyone out there got the full DF021 Godfather Saga? I’m trying to get a copy, been downloading from PB for a few weeks but no one is seeding. Happy to offer stuff in trade if anyone can help. Thanks

I hope someone can seed, so close! I used to love watching the saga around this time of year!
