Amazing! Cant wait.
This sounds amazing. Can’t wait. Ive always enjoyed Logan’s Run. I had no idea that the there was a longer cut.
thanks for the kind words. Glad you enjoyed it
PM for details on where to get a 720p version.
sounds good. where will you be sharing this?
Could you please send me your fan edit? FYEO is one of my favorite Bond films, I’d love to see what you did with it! Thanks!
As i said, its on myspleen.
It looks like youre new here. Generally speaking, most content isnt shared here on originaltrilogy. Discussion about content occurs here but most content is actually aquired elsewhere.
Look for this on the spleen
this edit is complete… ill let you know when its posted to the spleen.
Ok folks, the finish line is near. Just finishing up a last few tweaks. I hope to have this loaded on the spleen by the weekend.
I realize OT.com may not have a huge 007 fanbase, but this is where I like to hang out.
Thanks to the few of you that have offered encouragement. This was a huge project for me. Im very pleased with the final result.
update: editing complete. doing another pass to correct some audio levels. dialoge and music levels were a bit off.
Hope to release this in < 2 weeks.

Ive always liked the opening - a bit of silly fun before the proper story begins - but I completely understand cutting it all in favour of the attack.
Removing Margaret Thatcher is a good policy in all aspects of life, not just fan editing. Well done.
I’m looking forward to watching this!
I love the stuntwork in this scene, and the graveside scene is also quite nice. But neither really make sense in the finished edit.
are you telling us that youre going to tackle this project?
Rendering the release candidate now. My friends and I will be reviewing it in the next few days.
Nearing the finish line. Running time currently at 1hr 38 mins. Im going to preview it to a few of my friends, then most likely make a few tweaks based on their feedback. Then, I’ll release it to the spleen.
July 5 update:
The recent passing of Roger Moore has revitalized my interest in finishing this project. Good news: its nearly done. Ive aquired Adobe Premiere Pro, so the editing process has taken a major step forward. Thankfully, the 5.1 mix isolates the Bill Conti score to the left, right, and surround channels, so removing it while keeping dialoge and sound effects intact has proven much easier than anticipated.
Final touches are happening now.I hope to be sharing this cut on the spleen in the coming weeks.
some comparisions: original followed by recolored
downloading now. other than the opening credits, how is this different from the US version? is it a different dub, with different voice actors?
GMA seems like a weird forum to announce such a thing. Then again, the little commercial hardly hints at the unveiling of a trailer, nor does the language evoking the anniversary suggest a charity announcement. So who knows?
ABC is owned by disney
Could it be?
Has Flight of the Navigator been released in HD anywhere outside of Europe yet? I know they got a Blu-Ray release from Second Sight…also, how is that transfer? I’ve heard their (region-locked) release of the Super Mario Bros. Movie was superb.

The TV cut honestly looks pretty rough, but I imagine that’s as good as it will ever look
I watched the TV cut and it’s different than the mkv that I saw. The mkv has a channel logo throughout and audio on one channel. I only watched the beginning of it as I got bogged down on doing A/B comparison with the movie cut before writing down the minute differences with time codes. I’ll have to watch it again and see if it’s the same cut as provided on the BD extras.
Regarding the broadcast TV cut on the BD set, that’s probably the version I saw on a major TV channel. I’m guessing Universal probably has broadcast quality tape somewhere, but probably due to budgetary reasons it was not used and we got a VHS recording instead.
The mkv source is from me. i recorded on TBS in the early 2000’s. It was broadcast in mono, but i didnt realize that the encode i did moved the mono sound to one channel. Nothing is absent in the sound you are hearing, its just all moved to one channel.
I wonder how the colours of the original compare to this clip of the super 8mm?
The super 8mm certainly looks different to the blu ray…
not a reliable comparison. old super 8 prints will have extremely faded colors.
Will this be a BD25 or BD50?
The current plan is to do the initial release as a 30-40 GB mkv, so a bluray version will be BD50.
Guess you’re using H264 and not H265 which is the vastly better codec including halving the filesize. I’d rather wait for the BD anyway.
H265 is better at reducing file size, but H264 is overall considered a better codec for maintaining image quality.
OMG! Is that a open Matte print I see? The Blu-ray has a aspect ratio of 1.85:1, so your print at least has the benefit of extra picture information.
this is an old topic, but extra picture isnt always a “benefit”. The filmmakers never intended for that area to be seen. Its obvious even in these shots. Lens vignetting is visible, and there is odd framing for the actors.
regardless, this is a cool thing to see.
