Terminator 2 JP SqueezeLD Laserdisc Rip - Different (possibly original?) Color Timing
Time

IIRC, somewhere was said that they made an error on the first squeeze LD release: they forgot to grade the colors. I think somewhere was stated that James Cameron was not amused.

Its not the intended way to watch T2 sure, and I don’t have a problem with the original movie (one of my favorites ever), but in my opinion it’s nice to see a more varried color pallete throughout

That’s for sure.
I also would love to get the link. I have the LD myself, and got it ripped, but each side one file, and having one file version would be nice.
Which audio track did you rip? The digital track is said to be really powerful on that disc.

and considering this is my first real project thread I can expect nothing but beligerence from either side to turn pre-production on anything I touch into a trainwreck. …

You destroyed any beligerence about one year ago, when you did exactly the same thing you do here:
Announcing a list of projects, said something about a planned time schedule, thrown that time schedule away…announced another time schedule…
After that and your behavior, I personally think the German airport BER is more likely to be opened and finished, before you even get anything into any preview status, that shows your work.
Not a half backed, aspect ratio desaster you had once as a preview, with some kind of internet downloaded Anime episode and movie trailer “DVD preview” that not only showed that you do not care about what you present, nor about any tried help.
How can you even expect to be taken serious when coming up with the same nonsense again?

So, why are you insulting, wwoth word and behavior the ones doing hard work in their project?

available only to donors, how is this different than selling copies than?

Let’s see, that question is easy:
The donors are needed to obtain and scan the thing at all, so that not only one person, but a group of persons can share the price.
So every just pays a bit of the price to preserve the print.
While selling copies is intended to make more money, than just the essential needed amount.

Analog Releases of Films That Contain Deleted, Extended, & Alternate Footage That've Never Been Released on DVD/BluRay
Time

At the moment all my three UK Roar tapes are in Italy to be digitalized as soon as temperature dropped and possible… My fourth tape unfortunately is teared apart (edit: just checked: my vcr is broken, and kills tapes now…) … So at the moment I cannot even make a small mobile device video. But as soon as some proof has been digitalized and avaible.

Another movie:
Cujo
At least old German Warner VHS tape contained the Theatrical version, with longer erotic scene.
https://www.movie-censorship.com/report.php?ID=483823

There also exist an DVD release in Germany that is based on a bootleg that brought these scenes into the so called “director’s cut”… But it is a horrible work.

The page might be reliable but until I see actual images from the VHS itself and not some production photos being passed off as extra footage. I don’t believe it.

You really might be right. I got a Box Set at eBay, and the tape indeed is not longer, but in Full Screen as claimed. So, that release is to be kept with caution. It MAY be that I got a different Tape inside the Box, because the Box was not new… so somebody might have changed the Tape, to keep the original one.

The US theatrical cut of “Yellow Submarine” has not been released in a digital format. It appears on VHS and LD only.

https://www.movie-censorship.com/report.php?ID=1064

I think this says the Theatrical Cut was released on a German DVD.
https://www.movie-censorship.com/report.php?ID=1064

That’s possible… I would have understand it that the German DVD and VHS releases followed the demands to release the version with the missing song. But also the German languaged branch of movie-censorship has an entry that the first german DVD contained the Theatrical Cut, while the new release contains the reconstruction…

Edit: I assume the old DVD only contains the reconstructed version… Next week I may be able to tell… Thanks to eBay… 😄

I claim that whoever said there is 18 seconds difference is wrong. All those shots are production photos that can be found in The film and the legend book. Even you can see the attempt to hide the spine in the book in the last shot. Dracula has always been the same on all formats nothing has been added to the theatrical cut. The images can be found on pg 55,62,63,100,121 and 132&133

The page is normally extremely reliable and very pernickety regarding shortened versions. So I trust them more than your claim. They also admit, that the pictures where not taken with a capture card, but as photos from the television.

I’m curious about the 18 seconds longer in 6 scenes in Bram Stoker’s Dracula. I thought all releases were the same. Is their any information on the differences.

In German: https://www.schnittberichte.com/schnittbericht.php?ID=1124

But I think it is easy enough to translate the descriptions with Google translate.

Is the orange slip-case full bitrate DTS Japanese disc still available? And furthermore, does this issue have a full bitrate DTS track too?

https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/41HYEJS8FGL.jpg

The slip case version is not easy to get, just if you are lucky at ebay.

The shown picture is not of a Full Bitrate DTS Version.

Question about public domain works
Time

It is arguable, if scanning and remastering a video could be called creative work.

If a judge decides that putting days to work as creative work, the specific version could be qualify as copyrighted, while the movie itself is not, so everyone could still share the old not copyrighted masters.

I think I read somewhere that companies who have a license to release a movie, still needs specific video master licenses, if they don’t want to make their own.

We could make a test: you upload it, share it, and then we call criterion, and see what happens… 😄 (just a joke)

As I understand, the new transfer features some things that were not in the original theatrical Version? In this case it may be under copyright law.

http://www.copylaw.com/new_articles/PublicDomain.html:

Whenever you rely on the PD status of a work, it is important to make sure that the particular version you want to use is actually in the public domain.
Later versions or adaptations (e.g., translations, revisions, annotated and illustrated editions) of PD works may be protected by a separate copyright.

What’s with https://www.copyright.gov/title17/92chap1.html#104a ?

So, a restoration may have a different copyright status than the orlriginal work, if I understand that correctly.
Also the copyright law seems to have some hints that copyrights in other countries may also apply in US territories. So, it may also be possible that the restoration also work is protected die to the chain: protection in original country => protection in the US…
