The Outsiders (1983) Servanov Theatrical HD Reconstruction
Time

Thank you for viewing my fan reconstruction of Francis Ford Coppola’s The Outsiders (1983). This is a fan reconstruction of the theatrical version of the film, available for the first time in high definition. Previously, the only version available in HD was the extended “complete novel” version, which cuts out scenes as well as adds scenes to the film. The extended cut also replaced many of the original titles, opticals and much of the wonderful Carmine Coppola score.

This fan reconstruction used the official Blu-Ray as the main source for the video, and some footage, not included in the Blu-Ray, had to be replaced with a DVD version upscaled to HD and with color correction to match with the surrounding BD footage. Some titles were also recreated in HD, such as the Warner Communications “worm” logo (which had for many years been replaced by the modern logo, and was not the logo used in the theatrical version). The Zoetrope Studios logo and the “Francis Ford Coppola Presents” card were also carefully recreated digitally in HD. Additionally, audio was taken from the official 1983 LaserDisc to serve as the main audio source. The same LaserDisc (along with a VHS copy) was used as a timing reference, to ensure that the reconstruction was as accurate as possible. Thank you, and please enjoy the theatrical version of The Outsiders (1983) for the first time in HD.

The file can be found on Reddit under the r/megalinks subreddit.

Lolita (1962)
7/10
I think it’s one of Kubrick’s more interesting pictures because of how much he had to change the story to appease the censors, and how strangely it has traces of “Hollywood Golden age sixties.” I think that it’s not one of his best films, but I do think it’s a very enjoyable film to watch and has a whole deal of humor and black comedy.

Godzilla:2000 Trailer and Godzilla vs. Megalon Trailer 35mm prints
Time

About a year ago, I purchased a 35mm trailer for Godzilla 2000 on ebay. I bought it hoping it would be able to be scanned, but I could not find an economical way for that to happen. Additionally, a few months ago I bought a 35mm trailer for Godzilla vs. Megalon, from 1976 (the movie was made in 1973 but was released in the U.S. in 1976). I have not been able to find a scanning service, and I doubt they would scan trailers for movies. I would like some help in regards to getting these trailers scanned. They’re both in good shape, GvM trailer is a red faded, but both are in good shape physically. Any help on getting them scanned or if someone can scan them in good quality, that would be very much appreciated. Thanks!

Godzilla: 2000 35mm Trailer (Help Needed)
Time

Hello. About a year or so ago, I bought a 35mm print of a trailer for Godzilla: 2000. Since then, I have added many 35mm Godzilla reels to my collection, and I would like to get them scanned in HD. I don’t have a 35mm motion picture film scanner, so I couldn’t do it by myself. I also have a 35mm trailer for Godzilla vs. Megalon (1973). If anyone knows of a person that can scan the trailers in HD, that would be great!
