DJ sure deserves a lot of praise for synching the LD audio to this one. I took a look at it and it was horrible indeed, he had to make hundreds of cuts and edits.
But I somehow don't think it's got something to do with overdubs because the out-of-synchs happen at parts where there's like just music and sound effects too. I think it's just the frame count in lots of shots that differs between the prints or something.
I watched this earlier and I immediately detected sound sync issues starting in chapter 4. From that point on the PCM and DTS seem to be ahead of the video by a few frames. Most would never notice, but I did. I'm incredibly sensitive to this sort of thing. The DD2.0 track is properly in sync, but sounds tiny and muffled in comparison to the other two tracks (not Team Blu's fault since it is crummy 192kbps).
The video on this is superb and mastering of the disc is studio quality. Menus are responsive and immediate to move. Chapter movements is perfect, as is scanning. The BD loaded super quick in my PS3.
I am a big fan of Team Blu and feel they are about as good as it gets for fan restorations, so I hope my comments are not taken as an attack or negative. I don't regret taking the time to snag this release.
Thanks for the review Matt, it is greatly appreciated, also thank you on commenting on the authoring(did you notice the little icon for the PS3?) we strive to be perfect but in the end we are no different then any other fan of movies here, I have already commented on how fucking shitty this LD PCM was\is and it took a lot of work to fix, I went over that with you in PM so no need to say it here.
Also thank you very much for the bolded underlined part, this is what keeps us going believe it or not, we all love these projects we choose and do, but at the moment we are all on a much needed break and probably will not get back to work until mid February or possibly the end of Feb.
