But how was the steak cooked?
Just a PSA, guys - you’re more likely to get a response if you send a PM to the creator asking for a link than you will posting in the thread asking for a PM.
And why the fanmade Spyro 4 was given the axe recently, too…
Glad things are looking up for you, MFM!

Actually though I think the TIE Fighters are suppose to be suspended above the floor and fixed to the catwalk - no landing gear. TFA gets this wrong.
Is this based on anything in the movies? If not, then it’s not “wrong.”
Not to mention there’s nothing to say that the First Order didn’t make changes to the way their TIE fighters docked compared to the Empire’s models.
I need to think about it. I will say this: too many commercials, way too many commercials. It seemed like every third minute they broke for commercials.
Yeah, that’s why I’m not watching on BBCA anymore. I’m waiting for Amazon Prime’s download the next day. Or trying my hand at the BBC’s live stream through my VPN if I’m at home.
and the typical Doctor Who formula always seems a little childish to me.
You do realize that it originated as a children’s/family type show, right?
Sure, but that doesn’t mean the series can’t mature with the times, which I’d argue it has.
I’d also argue that the S11 premiere was the most adult it’s been in a long time, though, so I’ve gotta disagree somewhat with dahmage’s assessment of the episode feeling childish.
Did anyone notice that the Doctor was wearing an earring at the end of the episode? When did she pierce her ear? Did she regenerate with the piercings? Not complaining, just fun to point out little things like that.
I did not notice that. Are you sure her ear was pierced? Aren’t there earrings that work without a hole in the ear?
There are, but it was.
However, the Third Doctor suddenly had a tattoo after regenerating from the Second Doctor, and I believe there’s been at least one Doctor that had scars the previous Doctor didn’t display (like Smith if I’m not mistaken).
So there’s some precedent for cosmetic differences through regeneration such as pierced ears.
Also I can’t recall exactly, but don’t feel like looking it up - but didn’t Capaldi have pierced ears (or at least one), he just never wore any ear jewelry on the show? It wouldn’t be out of character for Capaldi, who was something of a rocker and a rebel in his youth.
Ah, fair enough. Is the AC3 from the LD the same 1999 theatrical mix, or is it a home video “near-field” mix?
At either rate, I’d absolutely include both, with the DTS mix as track 1 and the AC3 mix as track 2. Maybe also include the 2.0 PCM as track 3?
That was one thing I was glad of. The less they draw attention to it the better.
I was glad of that also. There will be time this new season to address it occasionally if it works with the story
Yep, exactly this. And I’m sure it will pop up here and there.
but no need to make it a plot point the way I suspect Moffat would have. Moffat’s not really a less is more guy.
Although I quite liked the majority of Moffat’s run, I can’t deny this at all, and I’m kinda glad we didn’t get the first female Doctor under him.
The DTS would have less compression, if I’m not mistaken. And again, to me it’s preferable for consistency with Schorman’s theatrical ROTS and the fact that pretty much every theatrical restoration for which cinema DTS is available uses that track as the primary.
SDDS would be interesting. I honestly don’t know if that one’s floating around anywhere, or if the community has a way of utilizing such a track if it were.
I’m with Duracell on this one. I can’t stand the ear and tail cropping thing. Wish our Boxers had their full tails, though that wasn’t our choice, and they have their full ears.
Anything above medium is overcooked almost by definition.
screams in the void said:
yeah , not a good movie to watch on acid
Gonna disagree with you on that one, though I understand your position on the subject and admit it’s an experience that is very much not for everyone.
Much like watching Blade Runner on acid. And now I’ve gotta track down some acid to take while watching 2049…
That’s true, and I was a big 2049 naysayer until about five minutes into the movie.
I do think they need to wait another 30 years before attempting Blade Runner 2079 if they’re gonna. I liked how the 2049 portrayed the passage of time and would love to check in with the universe another generation down the line.
Warb, you were worried that they were going to shove the gender change in your face before, and now you’re saying they didn’t bring it up enough?
There ish no pleeeeasink you! [/Goldmember voice]
I just had this thought when I was watching ANH:R last night. I understand that you are going to be changing some things between the current form of ANH:R and what will become ANH:R HD. Now what follows isn’t supposed to be inflammatory it was just a thought that I found interesting.
Would you consider the fact that you are tweaking with your version of ANH:R to be almost akin to the way Lucas tweaked with the standard ANH. We’re coming upon the same dilemma where the original ANH:R will not be available in an HD format, just like the OUT is not available in HD formats. You changed your mind about some decisions that were made and want this new HD version to be the definitive version of the films, yet there are people (like me) that would just like to see the current ANH:R but in HD.
I’m not sure this equates completely, but I feel like you could understand Lucas’s mindset on why the Special Editions exist in the first place. I also recall a popular argument for why the Special Editions are bad is because they supersede the Original Versions. That same thing is now going to happen with ANH:R. I’m not trying to be accusatory, I just thought this was something as a community that we could discuss.
This sort of updating editorial choices while upgrading visual or audio quality is fairly common in the fan editing world, though. I don’t see it as quite the same thing, personally.
I love that movie but I hope we never get a sequel.
I’d vote Cinema DTS as the primary. That seems to be more or less the “standard” for these types of projects lately (like with Schorman’s theatrical ROTS).

Also, why would they have remastered something they don’t plan to release? Archiving to avoid film damage?
Am I having a stroke?
No, people just seem to be bad at reading comprehension lately.

I saw a thread on another forum yesterday suggesting that maybe they’ll use the scrapped warhammer subplot from TFA to integrate Leia. It wasn’t a leak or rumor, just conjecture, but it makes sense.
That would imply that they filmed any of that material, which I seriously doubt ever got out of early script stage, if it even got that far.
Not bad at all! And in the absence of a true 35mm scan to use as a reference, I’m with you on the subtitles.
Chyron, are you sure you’re playing from the original files, or did you rip it to an MP4 or something and crop the letterboxing off in the process? Because I’ve never seen an anamorphic DVD of the SE of The Abyss.
There’s a pretty nice hybrid HDTV reconstruction of it on MySpleen at the moment, though.
