KK50, it looks like the Blade Runner 2049 blu ray has some issues with the blu ray colors. Have you looked into giving it a regrade?

ilyasdesign40 is spot on. I just got back from a much needed holiday today, the_magicman has been covering for me and uploaded regrades of different sizes of Blade Runner 2049 in my absense. They’ve been popular so 23GB versions with the Atmos track from the blu-ray are also available. I’ll post topics for the new Blade Runner 2049 regrades here later today.

I was hoping your absence was due to holiday. (Not that I thought you disappeared or anything) just thought you deserved a vacation for all the work you do here! Hope you had fun and welcome back.

The latest T2 remastered blu-ray has been massively DNRed so I’ve got no plans to create a new release, the blu-ray I used for my current T2 release looks much better IMHO.

…out on another forum

Huh? 😮

Yeah, I’m a bit confused.

To cut a long story short, I add the torrents to the usual place myself while the_magicman adds the torrents to another site. While I was away he continued adding torrents to that other site but nobody was adding the torrents to the usual place. As soon as I got back, the usual site was down so I wasn’t able to add the new torrents until the site came back up an hour ago.

The torrents are now all up at the usual site so apologies for the delay and enjoy! Send me a PM if you want to know where the other site is.

Just for the record, I prefer the V1 Blade Runner 2049 release over V2 but there was substantial interest in both so both were made available as 23GB versions.

An important thing to point out about the 23GB Blade Runner 2049 releases, the_magicman (i’ll call him TM from now on for the sake of brevity) had to use 64MB piece size with the 23GB torrents to get them to upload properly. utorrent does not support torrents with 64MB piece size, so you’ll have to use other bittorrent clients to download those releases. I recommend using deluge, qbittorrent or vuze for best download speeds. If you would like more 23GB torrents in future, once you finish downloading, do please do your bit and help seed these 23GB releases so others can enjoy them as well.

Thanks Ccooluke! Its good to be back.

I think TM is the one that needs a break now, putting up all the different sizes of the Blade Runner 2049 V1 and Blade Runner 2049 V2 regrades, as well as Interstellar and two Blade Runner The Final Cut V2 releases has had him uploading close to non-stop these last two weeks.

The plan is to upload a 9GB Thor Ragnarok regrade using the currently available WEB-DL, removing the blanket yellow tint, and then making the 22GB release of Blade Runner The Final Cut V2 available as a public torrent. That way, all the Blade Runner releases will be available as 23GB releases. Then he’ll take a break for a bit while I work on other releases. In terms of helping with the distribution side of things, his help has been invaluable, I couldn’t continue to do these releases without him.

KK650, would you be interested in regrading “Thor: The Dark World”? It has a greenish/yellowish tint and is overall very desaturated and dull color-wise, which makes it feel less “alive”, for lack of a better term. I think that a regrade to remove the tint and maybe also bring it somewhat closer to the more colorful look of the first Thor movie would greatly help it.

I totally agree on this. I was a tad sceptical at first but I added a mild cool light filter and increased the brightness and contrast by a hair on the screenshots. And after I did that I can really see what you’re saying. I’m not sure the saturation needs to be touched though.

I’d like to request a colour regrade of the 2004 movie Layer Cake starring Daniel Craig. My main issue is that the movie has a pronounced blanket green tint that interferes with stuff that are coloured blue like blue police car lights which appear teal or Daniel Craig’s eyes which appear emerald green.

I’ve been hoping that he’d do THE RELIC. But alas, even though he agrees that it needs to be lightened up, he’s not going to do the project since it’s not a movie he enjoys. I can’t blame him, as he has the right to pick and choose his projects. But I can always hope for a change of mind, can’t I? 😃

A warning to all who go to the usual place now for kk650’s regrades (not the organ) -

I went there today to grab the regraded Blade Runner 2049 v2, and got a nasty ransomware scare. For some reason I couldn’t log into the site today in Firefox (I just registered yesterday there and it worked fine yesterday when I first registered). So I tried it with Internet Explorer, as sometimes my Firefox add-ons are very aggressive with blocking bad things. I forgot that I had also temporarily disabled Malwarebytes. As soon as I went to the site in Internet Explorer, a scary pop-up came up over the site that looked like ransomware, complete with the “your computer has been locked” and instructions how to decrypt your drive after paying. Luckily, it appears to be a fake, as I was able to crash IE with the task manager, and after running full system scans with Avast and Malwarebytes, there is nothing to be found.

But regardless, this is not a place you want to be. It’s sad to see kk650’s regrades getting uploaded there, as A) The site seems to not work properly as I can’t log in, and B) it serves up nasty ransomware scares and who knows what else.

I implore KK650 to find another place to upload his material. I will no longer be visiting that place.

I’m very sorry to hear that Oldfan, just glad that the popup didn’t cause you any lasting problems in the end. I thought there might be issues with that site when I tried to log in a few days back to add new releases and wasn’t able to. Thanks for letting me know about this popup business, I won’t be adding any more releases there from now on.

the_magicman has been adding all my releases to two other sites that have no problems whatsoever. Anybody that wants to know where those two sites are, send me a PM and i’ll let you know.

I’m planning to have a look at the 3D blu-rays of Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and Doctor Strange over the next month and create IMAX releases for both. I’ll have a look at Thor: The Dark World as well if I get the chance.

It’s not that I don’t like the film, i’ve just never watched it.

I naturally priorise working on films that i’ve watched and liked but I will try to watch this film when I get the chance, just haven’t got round to it yet. If I like it, there’s a very good chance that it’ll get a regrade.

Sorry about not being around more these past few weeks guys, I’ve been suffering from stress related health issues and have been advised by my doctor to stop doing anything nonessential that is creating stress.

I seriously considered no longer creating regrades but decided to try just reducing my activity here and on other forums instead so I can focus on what I enjoy most, regrading and leave the distribution side of things to the_magicman, see how that works out. I will try to pop in every month to answer PMs and any questions in threads but I won’t be around here as regularly as I have been in the past.

Feel better, kk650! Take whatever time and measures you need. 😃

What can you get a Wookiee for (Life Day) Christmas when he already owns a comb?

kk650, any chance of a distribution by the_magicman of your V2 Once Upon A Time in America regrade, just lost it in a hard drive crash and now only have V1 which is’nt as good. V2 has’nt been available anywhere since the paradoxial place went down unlike most of your other older re-grades.

Thanking you in advance.
