Good news! Now all we need is a theatrical preservation of Game of Death. The original Hong Kong version is only available on VHS.

On the contrary:

I believe there was an exclusive scene only available on the VHS version. I think bruce dresses up as an old man or into the yellow biker gear… I cant quite remember but I know it’s only available in a VHS version. I will try and find the clip.

The Hong Kong version available on HK DVD and Japanese bluray doesn’t include the scene. I dont own the shout factory Hong Kong version so I don’t know if that scene is included.

Help: looking for... Scream (1996) - Unrated Director's Cut
Time

jolennon said:

There’s a high-def restoration on blutopia, I think

correct

Scream 1996 1080p UNRATED FANRES AVC DD 5.1
Credit & thx to Kcognetti503

Kcognetti503’s description: This is the infamous and hard to find director’s cut of Scream in 1080p! This is a composite I made myself from the US Blu-ray, the Japanese and German unrated director’s cut DVDs to create what is to my knowledge the only way to view the director’s cut in HD. I did the best I could to blend the DVD footage with the Blu-ray footage, so hopefully it is a pleasant viewing experience for all! The soundtrack is taken from the Japanese disc and is presented in 5.1 Dolby surround sound. Enjoy :)As requested, here are some screens of the upconverted footage. It’s not perfect, but I think it’s the best I can do given the source material. Keep in mind they look better in motion.

Blood Simple - original cut
Time

I saw the 1st UK DVD release yesterday in my local charity shop. I’m going away on Holiday tomorrow but if its still there when I get back I will pick it up.

DVDcompare states there is two UK releases of the theatrical cut. One was only included in a box set and has a different aspect ratio plus a commentary track.

Young Indiana Jones... a preservation (* unfinished project *) - a mass of info & ideas

The following website is of interest to French Young Indy fans (has links to the unaltered French VHS releases!). I haven’t provided a direct link, should this break the rules.
http://indianagilles.blogspot.com

Thanks for the info.
I’ve checked the first 3 episodes out and it turns out that they’re digital SD TV caps from France 4. I found a link on the France 4 website so they must still show it https://www.france.tv/france-4/les-aventures-du-jeune-indiana-jones/
The videos have a logo bug in the top right corner and the on screen text is all in french but overall very good quality.

Idea & info: 'Caligula - The Restored Cut' (concept)

Mission Caligula
Alexander Tuschinski’s 10 year quest to research Tinto Brass’ original ideas for Caligula, culminating in the discovery of Brass’ 1977 workprint - showing the film as a dark political satire, unlike any version ever released.

Thanks for the link I just watched the 40min doc - https://vimeo.com/281814277

The Last Jedi: Official Review and Opinions Thread ** SPOILERS **
Time

My post from the old thread that got deleted…

Just got back from seeing this, WOW was it bad! I had hoped they would of fixed some of the problems people had with The Force Awakens & Rogue One but they’ve totally ignored everyone criticism. This saga has now firmly shifted it’s vision & tone in a new direction that isn’t for me. I’m no longer interested in these characters or where the story goes from here, so I wont be going to the cinema to see the next chapter. RIP Star Wars
2/5

Cringeworthy comedy
General Hux pantomime villain
Luke milking an alien udder’s
Super Leia
Ugly puppet yoda
Snoke throw away villain #1
Phasma throw away villain #2
Luke throw away Hero #1
bad, bad, bad… Plus many other monments that left me shaking my head.

Info: Superman I-III extended TV cuts - Where have the preservations gone?
Time

Sorry about the delay but I’ve been sick all week with the flu.
Anway here’s some more detail about both tapes.

Superman III - ITV (Thames) MAY-07-1990
http://imgur.com/a/kI6Q6
The 1990 broadcast is the better quality of the two but isnt complete. It’s missing 15 secs from the intro and 20 mins from the main film (from when the blind man loses his dog, until when clark kent arrives at the school reunion).

Superman III - ITV (HTV) SEP-05-1985
http://imgur.com/a/NGlM9
The 1985 broadcast is missing 45secs from the intro but the rest of the film is complete (with comercials). Quality wise it’s not as good as the 1990 brodcast.

Here are some unfiltered samples of both tapes.
1990 = https://mega.nz/#!31ZEyIqQ!0A8M3ey8T4I1EHyuqwCkkb5FRqBTAh_p8wx95pZKS_8
1985 = https://mega.nz/#!OopmiLpL!RVjs9m1TSYdk0MLLZhlnFqNFarRphIXuMSxDuZnj1OQ

Obviously they both need some work to bring the best out of them e.g. Avisynth filters, denoised, colour corrected, etc.
If anyone whats to help just let me know.

You might want to hold off doing a Superman 3 just yet as a I have a higher quality source tape (Superman III - ITV MAY-07-1990). I also have another tv broadcast coming in the post this week. I’ll add more info soon.

More info please…

I’ve now received the other tape and it turns out to be the first UK broadcast of Superman III - ITV (HTV) SEP-05-1985. I believe both tapes are higher quality then the current fanmade releases on Mysleen. I hope to upload some pics or a video sample over the weekend.

Star Wars UK Broadcast dates
Time

I just got these today…
Star Wars Unknown date Sky Movies
The Empire Strikes Back Premiere 25th Dec 1988 HTV West
Return Of The Jedi Premiere 26th Dec 1989

Sadly the star wars VHS got caught in my VCR, so the opening crawl has tracking issues. I’m scared to rewind the tape to the start now. Also there seems top have been a technical fault during the broadcast as the screen cuts to the sky movies logo for a few secs just before they escape the death star.

The other two tapes work fine and they include commercials (well I only checked up to the first set).
