And Ron Howard never does Happy Days and Henry Winkler never becomes the Fonz? Yikes.
The soundtrack to the first season of Space: 1999 also used a lot of classical music to great effect.
What if George Lucas never made Star Wars at all?
Then this site would be originaljawstrilogy.com 😉
The links in the spam messages. One is spoofing the URL to the forum.
And yes, there is a spam attack going on. We’re keeping ahead of it, so far.
Some of them probably worked on Flesh Gordon! 😛
I’d love to know what flop from 1977 shot at Elstree those blokes though was going to go through the roof.
Yeah, there were four of them in all. And for goodness sake, don’t ever click on any of those spam links to see where they go!
Call me crazy, but there are some tracks from John Barry’s score to The Black Hole I think could work in places.
Moonraker Score by John Barry
Like the idea of Soviet composers as well. There were several impressive looking space films that came out of that era, (Roger Corman would dub them or use the FX shots for one of his own productions) but I’m blanking on the scores.
I’d hate to lose the sound effects, as the scene where the Discovery’s engines fire up has a lot of impact.
I know the Bowman on Earth scenes are in the book, but in the film they rob Dave’s appearance on the Discovery to Floyd of some of it’s power. Having said that, I’d hate to lose the Clarke/Kubrick cameo in the hospital scene. Maybe edit it so it’s more mysterious? The mother sits up in bed, but lose the actual hair brushing scene?
I sometimes think the Mission Report is too static. Maybe have some moving mission recording footage from 2001 to replace each slide cropped and formatted as if it’s being viewed on a computer screen? (In other words, you don’t see anything that couldn’t have been recorded by a camera at the Monolith site or on board Discovery. The accompanying text could be translated (subtitled?) on the fly from English into Russian to suggest who’s reading it.
Would love to see this MGM logo at the beginning.
Maybe entrance/exit music and an intermission to further emulate 2001?
End credits could be 2001 style as well.
I think the prices aren’t as crazy now as they once were. The full screen sets often go for much less because people think the bonus GOUT disc is also pan and scan. It’s not! 😉
Oh yes, they sound great. I was able to track down a factory sealed VHS Hi-Fi of Grease to capture the original Dolby Stereo mix a few years back.
Interesting! I always thought the tape releases were mono for some reason. Alas, my betamax is in storage with all my other gear for the foreseeable future.
Tapes were sometimes mislabled in the early days of Hi-Fi, or not all the duplication facilities had upgraded their equipment. (Hi-Fi could actually be switched off on some industrial recorders.) I even had an LD of an unrelated film with no digital tracks even though the jacket had digital sound markings. A second copy I later found of similar vintage had digital sound as advertised.
The LDDB has a PAL copy for sale, but the tech specs say that release was mono.
I’m super interested in this project still. If anyone knows of anyway I can help that would be great. I’m currently putting together a retrospective documentary about the Shining.
To quote a certain Mr. Torrance, I’m intrigued!

This is great lol. The fact that you found this at a Goodwill is impressive. This would be interesting to watch and get an audience reaction audio sync with a better looking picture. I’m not sure but I wonder if anyone on here knows of the Matrix sequels 35mm print restoration projects, this would complement that big time.
Yeah I was kind of surprised to find it for sure! I flicked through it and there either isn’t much of an audience there, or they did not like the film at all because there is no cheering, laughing, clapping, etc lol.
As for the sequel 35mm projects, I am not aware of at all. I did however see this print of Reloaded for sale on eBay…
It’s easy and better to chop all that tracking bloat off of ebay links. See above.
Sometimes these things were recorded at a late showing with few people in the auditorium, or after hours.

I’m waiting for someone to isolate that moisture vaporator from the background , stack 10 of them on top of each other , and make a bunny tower 😃
I was thinking the same thing!
Aieeee! Get out of my head! 😄
It’s all about the clickbait.
I could have sworn I saw an article a few months ago that a fourth film was back on again?
It was that boneheaded idea to bring Kirk’s father back that derailed things in the first place.
Ever thought of fanediting 2010 to make it more 2001-esque? 😉
This Doomcock guy sounds like Supershadow 2.0…
Welcome, projectcclarke! Big fan of your website. It’s a valuable resource around here. 😃
Not to get too far off topic, bur what was it like going to an indoor theater with under current circumstances?
Would Laserdiscs be of any benefit here? Although sadly they only got up to the middle of season 3 by the time new releases began to dry up in 1999.
The digital broadcast subchannel Heroes & Icons shows DS9 six nights a week in the U.S, but there’s a pesky bug logo in the corner and commercial breaks where there were none originally.
That’s what the prequels needed! 😄
This is news to me.
I guess with all the hype over Hayden donning the Vader suit, they didn’t want to publicize this at the time.
They missed out Daniel Naprous who was the actual Vader in Rogue One. Spencers Vader scenes were all reshot ( the inner cape was underneath the chest plate incorrectly during Spencers shoot) so , when doing the reshoots, they got Daniel Naprous to play Vader. Only one shot of Spencer remains in the movie
Good to know who to blame. R1’s sassy, swishy-walking, finger-wagging Vader is almost as embarrassing as the M.C. Hammer-dancing one at Disney…
I’m almost afraid to ask.
I get to see a 35mm print of this soon, will take notes, anything I should look out for.
Off the top of my head, look for the extra few seconds of SEN interacting with the kids towards the end of the movie.
