These specific masters have never been shown in HD anywhere as far as I know. It’s up for debate how accurate any of them were in regards to color. The Shining’s DVD does not even have its original theatrical blue ending credits.

Honestly the best way to watch these is either the boxset DVDs themselves or syncing their mono audio to the UHD releases. The Shining and Full Metal Jacket have DVD mono syncs already. 2001’s UHD comes with its original audio intact. Color-wise the UHD releases look fabulous and are probably as close as we’ll get to original intent.

I wouldn’t say “theatrical” blue credits for The Shining cause there’s no absolute proof that they were blue in theaters

Yes there was an ABC broadcast that had the end credits in blue but who’s to know if they weren’t made blue for the broadcast or it was an error when creating the TV master?

The Shining 35mm preservation thread would like a word? 😉

The iTunes copy of “The Motion Picture” is now the new master, and there are shoddy fixes done to some of the VFX mistakes. This is outside of The Director’s Edition, this is obviously just the cleanup team trying to patch things.

You’d think a few of of the original FX elements survived, since some TMP model shots got used on TNG more than once with new backgrounds. If Paramount had any sense, they’d bring in Douglas Trumbull to supervise any fixes.

Insanely high prices for old VHS movies
Time

Exhibit A

Factory sealed or not, who pays over 68K for a pan and scan VHS? The loons who constantly relist some old Disney VHS for the price of a new car is one thing, but I don’t know if this is for real or someone trying to exploit the retro video craze for profit. Check out the other auctions from that seller for more craziness.

BTW, I still have my original first edition Raiders VHS, (slightly used) if anybody wants to pay me 50K for it. 😉

The original 1999 DVD does have the mono mix, but the Laserdisc PCM mono has been captured by someone.

In the meantime, take a look at a rare behind the scenes photo posted on instagram by MacGillivray Freeman Films, who did all the aerial photography for The Shining and make IMAX films today.

Has anyone a capture of the laserdisc video ? (I mean only the image)

AFAIK, the 1999 DVD is from the same video master. All the 1999 Kubrick DVD’s, (except for Eyes Wide Shut of course) were older video masters.

I was watching the original Tron movie yesterday and noticed that the solar sail in that movie bears a lot of similarities to Dooku’s Solar Sail in Attack Of The Clones …In Tron , the solar sail also passes by some towers that have a very similar design to structures seen in AOTC on Kamino . The similarities make me think this was intentional inspiration that influenced episode 2 .

In Frink’s AOTC edit, the Tron score plays over those scenes. 😉
