kk650's Regraded Justice League V2 (2017) (blanket yellow tint removed from blu-ray)
Time

So, I totally disagree with the comments on the Last Jedi regrade not looking good. They look amazing. However, I’m not feeling the Justice League regrades at all. Screenshot 4 seems almost to white, and to my untrained eyes, the skintones don’t scream natural to me. Screenshot 5 seems to lose detail in the stained glass and image of the fire on the TV looks a little washed out. I know, it’s Snyder so, there’s this strong tint there, but it doesn’t seem as horrible as Man of Steel or BvS was. I dunno just my thoughts. Still, it’s greatly appreciated and I know there are people who will prefer what you did here over the bluray for sure.
Also, I liked how in the past when you did two version like this you added your personal opinion on which one you think looks better/ which one you like more. V1 vs V2. I’d love to see you continue that if you do more of these multiple versions.

KK650, would you be interested in regarding “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 know this was posted back in October, but any chance for a higher bitrate version of this? This and the shallows are the smallest file sizes I have of your stuff, and if I had to pick one to get a better bitrate, it’s this one, it’s a freaking classic. fingers crossed for a 22gb version.

I will upload it to Myspleen when I get the chance 😃

AWESOME

Seems like a photoshop auto-color to me.

Yes, exactly!
It was a photoshop autocolor, just to give an idea of how wrong was the color!

That’s crazy. You did good pointing out skin tone to KK. He’s all about accurate skin tones. Lol here’s hoping he does actually regrade this one.

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?

he’s already done 23GB is out on another forum

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.

Accurate English Subtitles for the GODZILLA franchise
Time

Considering that there are multiple different groups of people dedicated to making what’s called “fansubs” for anime… from the translation to the typing them out, to matching up the timing on the screen of when to show them…
I don’t think what you’re looking for can be done with automation. And a straight translation for Japanese subtitles if you have them, to the English translation would not be that understandable.

Now there is the issue of different versions of said films and even if you found a fansub group for the Godzilla franchise, you would have to make sure the you had the correct corrosponding version of the film so the subtitles made sense.
And most projects I’ve seen on myspleen are the English dubs not to many subbed versions. So you may be out of luck. But hopefully if someone knows anything about something similar to what you’re looking for, they’d be on here. So best of luck!

The Village (2004)

As far as I know, there still isn’t a Blu-Ray release of this, which is unfortunate given it’s great cinematography by Roger Deakins. There is probably an HD version available on streaming services, but I’d like to have it on Blu-Ray.

Like I posted blu-Ray.com is a great resource. The Village does pop up when you search for it, indicating there is no bluray. There is a 1080p webrip floating around online. Easily findable. But that’s your best bet for now.

After tehparadox went down and all the file host links to my regrades went down with it, continuing to use file hosts was no longer an option. I will be uploading my releases only to torrents from now on and I won’t be changing my mind on that.

Be patient and give it time, I also want to be able to share my work on recent films in as high quality as possible, but the conditions have to be right and they aren’t yet.

Not being dissentive here but I question how useful 2gb and also 9gb torrents of your regrades to gauge interest in 22gb versions is. Most fans ignore lower bit uploads and the effort to seed them which muddles the results. They then become bored waiting for the ultra quality encodes since all these films have been watchable for weeks or months in various forms already.

If you check the statistics of the torrents, you’ll actually see that the vast majority of downloads are for the 2gb releases, so actually more fans are ignoring the larger 9gb releases than vise versa. The smaller 2gb releases are much more popular than the 9gb releases, that is an undeniable fact.

Watching the seed/peer/number of downloads stats of the 2gb and 9gb releases is the only way to get a good idea of which releases are more popular and decide which releases should get higher bitrate releases. Its not a perfect system but its the best I can think of.

My advice to you is don’t wait, watch the actual blu-ray when it comes out and then wait patiently for a possible 22-23gb release.

If I may suggest, imdb review/votes quantity could presumably determine your release schedule to simplify this distributive process. For perspective, Wonder Woman has on imdb 315,157 votes while Baywatch counts at 76,554 votes. Positive reviews not withstanding, as it is entirely subjective on which is the better movie, this seems a solid method to measure popularity. Then factor in your personal feelings for these films offered to resolve which gets a final regrade.

Maybe he does? Maybe someone (not me) requested Baywatch. I mean, the torrent was popular enough to warrant a higher bitrate torrent. While personally I thought The Shallows was much better, but it still doesn’t have a second torrent, so it’s not as popular.

And as for what he said about the torrent size popularity is true as far as I can tell. I seeded the smaller files at least 10 times over, while struggling to seed the larger files even twice back. (Not because of internet speed but because no one was downloading it). Now I’d love some 22/23 gb files. I’d love GOTG vol 2 done the same as the first one. But we need to be patient.
He’s been doing this for a while now and doesn’t really need us to tell him how he should pick his regrades. and honestly seeding some torrents back to make sure it gains popularity is not as bad as the multipart files from hosting sites you used to have to download, then download again when the bigger size was available.
Also like he said he’s been back at it for like a month with the torrents, let the popularity grow.

Thanks for this kk650. Are you planning to release an IMAX version with left sidebar removed as you did for GOTG1? That’s my go-to version for the first movie and I’d love the same for GOTG2.

I would like to but I don’t currently have the free time to put it together. Hopefully I will over Christmas.

A-FREAKING-MAZING to hear!
