I was hoping to, among other things, extend the existing depth map for the widescreen version to create a 3D conversion for the open matte version. Could anyone send me a MEGA link? Thanks!
He can’t at the moment, since he’d gotten involved in a bit of a tempest in a teacup over in the Fantasia thread.
I’ve known RVSA screeners to have been duplicated up to 16 weeks before the national advertised availability date, or NAAD for short. Question is, have videotapes ever taken any longer than that to come out since a screener was printed?
But at this point studios aren’t even making 35mm prints anymore, so I’d be really surprised if anyone’s looking for old theatrical release prints in private collector’s hands.
You might say the same thing about screener and rental-only videotapes from back in the day.
I’ll probably group them as The Nostalgia Critic: The 3D Files. (Only the actual film clips will be 3D, though.)
Ah, thanks! (BTW I forgot to mention the other 3D movies he reviewed, namely Jurassic Park, Sharkboy and Lavagirl, and Terminator 2, though two out of those three were technically post-converted.)
Great! I’ll look for the highest-quality versions of the episodes and use them as my primary source, along with the 3D Blu-ray releases of Jaws 3 and Spy Kids 3D: Game Over, and when they are completed, I’ll send you the finished products via WeTransfer.
If it’s all right with you, I might do 3D versions of the Jaws 3 and Spy Kids 3D: Game Over episodes.
A.K.A. The Version Herb Cohen Doesn’t Want You To See
It’s a long story, but the short of it is, in 1985, one Herb Cohen sued Paramount Pictures for releasing Medium Cool on videocassette. Apparently, the license to use Wild Man Fischer’s song “Merry-Go-Round” only extended to the cinema and to television broadcasts, and the judge hearing the case, bonehead that he is, sided with Cohen, which is why all current releases of the film replace it with a whistled rendition of “Sweet Georgia Brown”, which totally ruins the scene where it played. As such, I was hoping someone with an original VHS or Beta copy could upload it to MEGA and send it to me via DM, so I could try and sync it with the Criterion Blu-ray for a future project.
Definitely would like a MEGA link via DM.
As did I, until a few years ago.
Now seeking help for French Canadian dubtitle track, based on the official French Canadian dub. I may add the option for French Canadian dubtitles as early as v1.1.1.
I can’t wait for 2.16 to come out, especially since that’ll be fully compatible with Apple Silicon.
To be honest, this has been on the backburner for a while as I was working on other things while waiting for viable materials to use for the 2D version as well as the 3D version. I’ll upload v1.0.3 again tomorrow, but this’ll be the last time; after that, I’ll start long-delayed work on v1.1.
I’m in for a good FHD (at least) scan of Cinderella the way it was meant to be seen.
If anyone has a link to the TB disc of Cinderella in MKV format, could they send me a PM to tide me over while I’m waiting to hear about the status on RU.08’s restoration before I chip in? Thanks!
Here it is, in full 1080p and open matte, from the Amazon Prime print of Welcome Home, Roxy Carmichael, albeit silent and without its closing counterpart, as even if it did appear on that film, only the opening logo appears on international prints of The Brave Little Toaster.
I’m thinking of sending over an ITC Entertainment logo to also appear in your restoration, if that won’t delay anything.
Would appreciate a link to these if anyone still has them.
Count me in.
I might sync an English fandub to it at some point.
Alternatively, if you don’t accept Bitcoin at present, I can convert some of my Bitcoin to USD and contribute the result via PayPal.
I have the original Roadshow Home Video VHS, but that one is quite rare.
UPDATE ON V1.1: In addition to the inclusion of the French Canadian version, v1.1 will also tone down the contrast a bit, and an effort will be made to make the night scenes look better.
Links will be sent this weekend after I’ve reuploaded v1.0.3. And work will begin soon on v1.1 after an unexpectedly prolonged delay.
If you’re still sending the 35mm scan’s digital file to contributors, I can contribute via Bitcoin.
