Help: Looking for Avisynth alternatives
Time

For years I’ve heard about Avisynth. With it, you can video edit, color correct, upscale, degrain and more. I finally decided to get in to using it. Unfortunately, Avisynth is only available on Windows but I run MacOS instead. So I would like to find an alternative that is comparable to the actual thing but can actually run on my computer. Any help would be appreciated.

The Unpopular Film, TV, Music, Art, Books, Comics, Games, & Technology Opinion Thread (for all you contrarians!)
Time

In my personal opinion, 2001: A Space Odyssey is a very overrated movie. So many people say it is a masterpiece of a film. I personally think it’s just okay. The cinematography and especially the visual effects are very ahead of its time. But the movie has one big flaw. It is so slow. For some reason it doesn’t bother me when the LOTR movies have similar pacing though. Also, I think that the best Kubrick film is a tie between Eyes Wide Shut and A Clockwork Orange. They just feel more visually unique compared to 2001. The stories for both movies interest me more.

Help: Looking For... Spirited Away on 35mm
Time

In June of 2015, the film Spirited Away received a Blu-ray release. I was unbelievably hyped, considering that I saw the film in theaters back in 2002 and I consider it to be one of the greatest films ever made. And unlike other home video releases I have talked about, I was not disappointed at all. It was an amazing transfer of an amazing film. I would like to acquire a 35mm print of the film as that was the version I saw in theaters and there currently isn’t a 4K version. The only clip I have that is in 35mm is the initial American trailer as seen here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ByXuk9QqQkk&t=34s. I would actually like to see an entire version like this that matches the theatrical version. Any help would be appreciated.

Help: Looking For... Lord of the Rings HDTV Rips
Time

In 2011, the extended versions of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy was released on Blu-ray. I was pretty hyped, as I consider them to be some of the greatest films ever made. I was disappointed however, when all of the films, especially Fellowship of the Ring, had a blanket blue tint put over the entirety of the film. The Two Towers and Return of the King still had these issues, but they weren’t as bad as the first film. I would like to acquire HDTV or even 35mm prints as those have more accurate color timing. Any help would be appreciated.
